Did you know that Epsom Salt is not really salt? It is actually a naturally occurring mineral compound comprised of magnesium and sulfate, both of which are easily absorbed through the skin.
Magnesium is vitally important for enzyme function, muscle and nerve function, reducing inflammation and the structural health of cell membranes. Sulfate helps the body to absorb nutrients, eliminate toxins and heavy metals and has even been shown to reduce the pain associated with migraine headaches.
Adding these minerals to bathwater activates the process known as reverse osmosis which draws toxins out of the body.
Epsom salt baths have been used for hundreds of years to calm the mind and body. Warm Epsom salt baths have been shown to ease stress, reduce pain and inflammation, soften skin and heal cuts and scrapes.
For a relaxing and detoxifying bathing experience:
- Add 1 to 2 cups of Epsom salt to warm bath water. (Epsom salt can be found at most pharmacies.)
- Soak for at least 30 minutes 3 times per week to experience all of the amazing benefits of the Epsom Salt Bath.
- Add a couple of drops of lavender essential oil for a more relaxing effect.
Unwind, breathe easy and enjoy…
