It was a long weekend. Not the public holiday variety. More the... taking-on-a-job-too-big-for two-days-variety.
We had decided to pull down an internal brick wall at home. What seemed at first glance to be super easy turned into a back-breaking weekend of two 10-hour days hauling bricks and rubble.
I completed about 40 trips (maybe a few more or less) in and out of the house and a long hallway pushing a wheelbarrow full of bricks and rubble (a new Barre F.I.T exercise perhaps 🤔 haha).
By the end of day two – my husband and I were both spent, sore and exhausted. (the kids not so much!) Our tired muscles were crying out for some relief.
Let me be clear – even getting into the bath was a struggle. I heaved my aching limbs and stiff back into the bath feeling every bit my age.
I couldn’t see or feel the salts in the bath, they kind of felt like an invisible miracle-worker. During the bath I really didn’t have any indication they were in the bath with me.
As I got out of the bath (after a little longer than the minimum recommendation of 20mins 😉 that included devouring a couple of magazines which had been sitting on my bedside table for a month or so) I completely forgot I had gotten in grumpy and sore.
The Base Collective are a seriously cool, clean, natural and organic range of products. Created by two clever mums from my hometown of Melbourne, Co-founder and Pharmacist, Cassie Sanghvi wanted to create a range which is free from nasties using the best natural and organic ingredients available. I love that their brand is created by two chicks, and I also love their brand values – ‘simplicity, good vibes and keeping real’. Their website says ‘Life isn't perfect. Even if it appears that way on Instagram. You know what is real and so do we.” Love it!
You can get your hands on a pack of these amazing salts for a modest $14.00 AUD and they deliver Australia Wide! Not just limited to magnesium salts, The Base Collective also produce a range of magnesium oils, white tea body wash and body balm plus a variety of pet and baby products too - which means the whole family can enjoy some relaxing bath time.
