Top 4 Benefits of Epsom Salt Bath Soaks:

The natural physical and mental health benefits of soaking in Epsom and sea salts is amazing. It’s crazy that most of us have to make ourselves take time to de-stress and unwind.  But allowing our mind and body time to rest is essential.  Soaking in salts helps rid your body of toxins and then allows the minerals to absorb through your skin.

Benefits of Epsom Salt Baths

1) Magnesium Levels are Boosted

Magnesium levels that are adequate are essential for good health, but magnesium deficiency is very common. You will naturally increase internal magnesium levels without taking magnesium supplements by simply soaking your feet or entire body in an Epsom salt bath.

2) Reduces Stress

Magnesium not only helps you relax your muscles, but it can also help you relax your mind.

Magnesium is needed for energy production in cells. You will feel revitalized without being irritated by rising magnesium levels.

3) Reduces Pain and Inflammation

A warm Epsom salt bath is considered to alleviate pain and inflammation, which is at the root of most diseases. As a result, it’s a good natural cure for aching muscles, headaches (including migraines), and arthritis pain.

4) Eliminates Toxins

Epsom salt contains sulfates, which help the body flush out toxins. This gives the body’s cells a heavy metal detox. This will aid in the reduction of toxic substances accumulating within the body. Human skin is a porous membrane with a lot of holes in it. When you add minerals like magnesium and sulfate to your bathwater, it activates a mechanism called reverse osmosis, which draws salt and harmful contaminants out of your body.

Extra facts about Salts and Baking Soda:

Dead Sea Salts

Dead Sea Salts contain 21 minerals including magnesium, calcium, sulfur, bromide, iodine, sodium, zinc and potassium. These essential minerals naturally occur in our bodies but must be replenished, as they are lost throughout the day. These minerals are known to treat, detoxify, and cleanse our bodies.

Epsom Salt:

Epsom Salt is actually pure mineral compound of Magnesium Sulfate. The wonders of Epsom salt have been well known for hundreds of years and unlike other salts, Epsom salt has beneficial properties that can soothe the body, mind and soul. Some of the countless health benefits include relaxing the nervous system, curing skin problems, soothing back pain and aching limbs, easing muscle strain, healing cuts, treating cold and congestion, and drawing toxins from the body.

Baking Soda:

Adding baking soda to a warm bath is a soothing for your skin, and health-boosting for your body. The reason baking soda works so well is because it’s alkaline and, when combined with water, makes the water slightly more alkaline as well. Baking soda in the bath helps soothe eczema, calm hives, helps fight skin fungus and relief for sore muscles.

A great extra step before you take a Bath Salt Soak is to  dry brush your entire body before entering. Dry brushing eliminates dead skin cells, allowing you to get the most detoxifying and purifying benefits from your bath. Brushing in the direction of your heart can also help to increase circulation.

Suggested use:

It’s recommended that a bath should be about 20 minutes to an hour for best results. The first 20 minutes will give your body time to remove toxins from your system while the last 20 to 40 minutes will allow you to absorb the minerals in the water. The water should be as hot as you can manage, to sweat out the impurities.
