The Epsom Salt is a 100% natural compound of magnesium and sulfate, that has been used as a natural remedy for years. Its use helps regulate the magnesium levels in the body, leading to the production of serotonin, a hormone that soothes and helps relax.
One of the advantages of the salt is that both the sulfate and the magnesium are components that can be easily absorbed by the skin, so a great way to enjoy the health and beauty benefits of the substance is emerging and relaxing in a bathtub with warm water and a bath bomb packed full of Epsom & Sea Salts.
Some of the benefits of a bath enriched with Epsom salt are:
- It soothes stress and relaxes the body
When we are stressed, our levels of magnesium decrease, while the adrenaline increases. The Epsom salt will help replenish the body with magnesium, which will contribute to the production of serotonin, providing a feeling of relaxation and calmness. Plus, the ions found in magnesium reduce irritability, leaving adrenaline levels lower.
- Eliminates body's toxins
The Epsom salt provides a detox in the bath, helping the body in its process of removing toxins and harmful substances from the cells, which also relieves muscle aches and pains.
- It can soothe eczema symptoms
Recommended by the National Eczema Association as one of the type of baths that can help treat some eczema symptoms, such as soothe the dry, itchy patches.
- Exfoliates the skin
Wiping a handful of the compound on moistened skin will remove dead cells, making the skin healthier and softer.
