What to do: add a good shake of my fabulous Beautiful Bathing Salts to you bath, just as you get in, stir around then soak for around 15 minutes at least three times a week.
Benefits: Epsom salts are one of the oldest bathing remedies and with good reason; here’s just a handful of benefits: they help to calm problematic skin, increase magnesium levels, relieve stress, bring muscular relief to the body and help the body to reduce toxin levels.
The Problem: Many, if not most, of us are deficient in magnesium – you can take a supplement, try to increase magnesium rich foods in your diet, such as spinach, pumpkin seeds, natural live yogurt, almonds, avocado and bananas…. or you can soak in a gorgeous aromatherapeutic bath with my new bath salts.
Why do we need it: magnesium helps the body regulate hundreds of enzymes and plays an important role in many bodily functions, like muscle control, electrical impulses, energy production and the elimination of harmful toxins. Magnesium deficiency causes heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, arthritis and joint pain, digestive problems, stress-related illnesses, chronic fatigue and a number of other ailments.
The Answer: So let’s get in a heavenly warm bath with Epsom salts. Here’s some science: while the magnesium we eat in foods can be poorly absorbed through the stomach, studies show increased magnesium levels in the body from soaking in a bath of Epsom salts because it is easily absorbed through the skin.
Directions: Tip a good amount into the bath just before getting in, swirl to dissolve the salts. Then relax in the bath for at least 12 minutes to allow your skin to absorb the magnesium.
