Healing Powers of the Sea

The healing powers of Epsom salt date as far back as the 18th century. Only in recent years have the true therapeutic benefits of Epsom salt come to light, making it a staple remedy for many. By adding an Epsom salt bath into your weekly routine you can combat insomnia, slough away dry, tired skin and unwind knowing that total relaxation is just one soak away.

Ahead, are four miracle benefits of Epsom salt that reach your skin, body, and mind.

Boost Magnesium Levels

Epsom salt is more than just a salt. It’s actually magnesium sulfate, a mineral that helps your body produce energy. Most people are magnesium deficient, which can lead to problems such as increased anxiety, muscle aches and high blood pressure. An Epsom salt bath is an excellent way to increase magnesium in the body and keep at bay ailments that come with magnesium deficiency.

Natural Way to Fight Insomnia

Sleep doesn’t come easily to everyone. But the magnesium in Epsom salt can  boost your sleep cycle by improving muscle relaxation and regulating sleep hormones. Magnesium calms the mind and aids in lowering stress and anxiety that may be keeping you up at night. Boosting your magnesium intake can help you fall asleep and also improve your quality of sleep over time.

Moisturize Dry Dull Skin

Relieve tired, dry skin by making an Epsom salt elixir. Mix Epsom salts with a quarter-sized drop of your favorite bath oil. The mixture creates a great all-natural exfoliant – gentle enough to be used on the whole body. Be sure to give a little extra TLC to your knees and elbows.

Simply Detox

Completely detox with Epsom salt in as little as 30 minutes. As the warm water eases muscle and joint pain, the sulfates in the Epsom salt actively draw out toxins from the body.

The magnesium in the salt relaxes the body and mind by triggering part of the nervous system that creates feelings of calmness.

Taking care of yourself is integral to a healthy and happy life. Invest time into adding an Epsom salt bath into your routine and reap the benefits for years to come.
