Detox your body through your feet with Cannalife Botanicals Bath Soak and Scrubs

About 10 years ago, I was hanging out with my friend Watermelon, and she shared with me her Thieves Oil from Casey at Salt Spring Naturals and her tip about applying it to her feet anytime she was “incubating” a cold or flu. She was the first person to inform me that you can detox your body through your feet. Since then, I have developed an amazingly easy DIY foot soak and acupressure massage utilizing Cannalife Botanicals Bath Soak and Scrubs and a bag of marbles from the dollar store.

My favourite soak to use in the summer is our Relieve Soak as the peppermint, rosemary and lavender are extremely cooling and they refresh your feet on those hot, humid summer nights.

For the best effect, use the warmest water you can handle to open your pores. Add in your Cannalife Botanicals Soak & Scrub (we suggest 1/2 cup of your favourite Soak) and a bag of marbles.  Immerse your feet into the medicated water and soak them until the water runs cold. The epsom, dead sea and pink salts in the soak act as an anti-inflammatory astringent. For extra zing add 1/4 cup of baking soda to accelerate the process.

Ions are absorbed through your feet as your body is detoxing. Roll your feet over the marbles in the water for a bonus acupressure massage. If the salt water you are soaking in becomes dark, that means you are eliminating toxins from your body.

We are also excited to introduce our newest Cannalife Botanicals Soak and Scrub in Uplift! Featuring the essences of Pink Grapefruit, Bergamont and Black Pepper for a refreshing, uplifting soak:

Fresh Pan Fried Cod

 

Summer is the best time to get fish locally here in the Pacific North West. I like to buy fresh cod filets from our local fish market.  I find the smaller sizes are better as they fry evenly and cook quite quickly.

Ingredients

Flour Coating 
1 cup coconut flour
2 tbsp. hot paprika
2 tbsp. chili powder

Mix well place aside

Rinse fish thoroughly and pat dry

Coat each filet in flour mixture.
Place aside while preparing pan.
Use a non-stick pan, coat bottom of pan with:

1 Table Spoon of Cannalife Botanicals Olive and 1/8 of a cup of regular olive oil

or

1 Tablespoon of  Cannalife Botanicals Infused Coconut Oil and 1/8 of a cup or regular coconut oil

You want there to be enough oil that fish does not stick.

**Disclaimer: The amount of Cannalife Botanicals Olive Oil used will determine dosage, please know your tolerance.

Cannalife Botanicals Coconut Oil*

Disclaimer: The amount of Cannalife Botanicals THC Infused Coconut Oil used will determine your dosage. Please know your tolerance.Dosage: 1 Teaspoon of Cannalife Botanicals Coconut Oil= 25 mg THC

Fry each side until golden brown and place on paper towel to help dry any excess oil.
Do not over cook; fish should be just flakey but not to dry!

I like to make a homemade tarter sauce to accompany my cod

Homemade tarter sauce
Ingredients:
1/2-cup regular mayonnaise
1/4 cup finely chopped pickles
1 tbsp. finely chopped red onion
Juice of 1 fresh lemon.
(If large lemon uses caution. Only enough juice for flavor.  You do not want tartar runny)
1 tbsp keeps dry mustard.
Pepper to taste.

Mix thoroughly and let sit. I like to make the tarter the night before to let the flavor really meld.

Enjoy!
