Let’s Get Salty

Epsom salt contains Magnesium and Sulfate.  Those two things may sound harsh, but they’re not!  According to Dr. RH Waring*, Magnesium regulates the activity of over 325 enzymes, reduces inflammation, helps muscles and nerve functions, and helps to prevent artery hardening.  Sulfate helps improve the absorption of nutrients, flush toxins, and help ease migraine headaches. Bath Salts-New ShotEpsom salt is great for your mind, body, and even your soul.  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.  Research shows that magnesium also increases energy and stamina by encouraging the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy packets made in the cells. Experts believe that bathing with Epsom salt at least three times a week helps you to look better, feel better, and gain more energy.  Because Epsom salt can ease pain and relieve inflammation, it makes it beneficial in the treatment of sore muscles, bronchial asthma, and migraine headaches. In addition, it has been known to heal cuts and reduce soreness from childbirth.  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.

It has been recommended that you take a hot bath with Epsom salt at least three times per week.  For a detoxifying bath, at least once weekly, you want to add two cups of our Bath Salts and soak for at least 10 minutes. Your feet have the largest pores on them, so if you can’t take a long relaxing bath, try filling up a large pot of water and soak your feet.
