Taking a 20 minute epsom salt bath is just about the best way to chill out, relax and enjoy a great detox, all at the same time!
About Epsom Salts
Epsom salts are made of the mineral ‘magnesium sulphate’. Both magnesium and sulphate are important nutrients for the body, and are easily absorbed through the skin when added to a bath. An epsom salt bath also draws toxins away from the body, and helps you relax.
To get enough magnesium it’s important to eat lots of green vegetables. However stress can make it more difficult for your body to absorb magnesium, that’s why soaking in an epsom salts bath is so good. It’s an easy way to de-stress and get a boost of this much needed mineral!
Simply sprinkle it into a running bath. It dissolves quite easily, but stir the bath well so that all the salts are completely dissolved – otherwise you might find it’s a bit lumpy to sit on!
Make sure the bath is nice and hot, ready for a good 20 minute soak.
Then just relax and let the salts do all the work!
