Taking a calming and relaxing Epsom Salt bath once a week has many amazing health benefits. Epsom salt baths are perfect for relaxing and detoxing your body, while getting the health benefits of magnesium. If you’re someone who doesn’t have time for a bath, you can get the same benefits from doing an Epsom salt foot soak!
What is Epsom Salt?
Epsom salts are naturally occurring pure mineral compounds made of sulfate and magnesium. They’re names after a saline spring in Surrey, England, where Epsom salts were first discovered. Epsom salts are most commonly used in a hot bath or foot soak to reduce stress, detox the body and have even been used to help promote weight loss.
Benefits of an Epsom Salt Bath
When Epsom salt is added to a hot bath, magnesium and sulfates are broken down and absorbed through the skin, when they are absorbed through the skin, they penetrate into the bloodstream, much like any essential oil. Adding essential oils to your Epsom salts adds a nice relaxing touch while also giving you the many health benefits of whatever oil you choose. Epsom salt will pull harmful toxins out of the body through the skin, which will allow the magnesium and sulfates to enter. Sulfates are needed in the body to help maintain healthy joints as well as nervous and skin tissues.
