Known for its profound and wide-ranging benefits, Epsom Salt has been proven to soothe muscle pain, cleanse pores, and detoxify the skin. Taking regular Epsom Salt soaks can help you feel rejuvenated and healthy! As if taking a relaxing bath a few times a week weren’t tempting enough, adding Epsom Salt to the mix makes it a part of your overall wellness regimen.
Here are just a few common uses for Epsom Salt:
1. Ease Stress and Relax the Body
Stress drains the body of magnesium and increases levels of adrenaline. Soaking in an Epsom Salt bath is one of the most effective means of making the magnesium your body needs readily available. When dissolved in warm water, Epsom Salt is absorbed through the skin and replenishes the level of magnesium in the body. The magnesium helps to produce serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical that creates a feeling of calm.
2. Pain Reliever
An Epsom Salt bath can ease pain symptoms and inflammation. It’s great for sore muscles, asthma, and headaches! Epsom Salt also has been known to heal cuts. Just try mixing a thick paste of Epsom Salt with hot water and apply to get soothing comfort. It also makes a great soak for tired, achy feet.
3. Detox the Body
The sulfates in Epsom Salt help flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances. Your skin is a highly porous membrane and adding the right minerals to your bathwater triggers a process called reverse osmosis, which actually pulls salt out of your body, and harmful toxins along with it.
San Francisco Salt Company—one of the largest suppliers of specialty salts in the country—insists that salt isn’t just a commodity; it’s a necessity for our health and well-being. And we agree, they are right. We love their Epsoak Epsom Salts!
Their mission is simple: to raise awareness to the benefits of natural sea salt and harness the power of the ocean and enhance your well-being, from the inside out. We recommend adding two cups of Epsom Salt to your bath and soaking for at least 12 minutes. Do this three times weekly for the best benefits!
