Ahhhhhhhh, nothing like a Mustard Rub after a Mustard Bath!
I L O V E taking baths with Dr. Singha’s Mustard Bath Salts, I truly believe* that his Mustard Bath Salts have helped me kick out the beginnings of a snotty/coughing/wanky cold many times.
Get in the tub right when you feel the crap coming on and hang out for at least 20 – 30 minutes to soak in all the Mustard goodness. Add some Epsom salts in the mix as they seem to be good for just about everything.
If you’re wanting to thwart off a cold, try chomping on a clove of raw garlic too before you get in the tub. I know. Gack! But take a clove, slice it in half, chomp one half a few times on the left side and then swallow with water, then do the same on the right side with the other half. I know, it’s rough, but effective.
Do that clove of garlic, get in the tub with Mustard Bath, chant your “I FEEL GOOD” affirmations like you really believe them and then rub down with Mustard Rub after you get out – you just might thwart the cold crud!
Look on THIS LINK for more “folkie-remedies” with raw garlic. Fine to wuss out and add honey, but whatever it takes, slam some raw garlic down! Click here for Web MD’s take on garlic if that makes it more “official” for you (is Web MD “official”? I have no idea).…or go crazy googling garlic if that’s what pleases you.

To my favorite Diva;
Should we add a little catsup too?

Dear Diva Dad,
You are obsessed with eating in the bathtub! But ok, fine, you may add some ketchup to your Mustard and Garlic Bath. I think you should have some french fries in there too. I will be sending you this bath time floating snack tray for Father’s Day. Lots of room too for a few drinks! Gotta stay hydrated Dad!
