The Benefits Of Epsom Salts

The Benefits Of Epsom Salts

Epsom salt is named for a bitter saline spring at Epsom in Surrey England. It is not actually a salt at all, but a mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate. Epsom salt has numerous uses but for the purposes of our short discussion, we’ll stick to the topics of health and beauty.

Magnesium and sulfate are readily absorbed into the skin making Epsom salt an ideal way to take advantage of their benefits. Magnesium helps regulate enzyme activity, reduce inflammation, soothe sore muscles, improve nerve function and help prevent hardening of the arteries.

Sulfates help improve absorption of nutrients, flush toxins and help ease the symptoms of migraine headaches.

At Tahoe Bath and Candle Works, we believe that whether you like a relaxing soak or wish to enhance your beauty effortlessly, making Epsom salt a part of your routine can add a whole lot of goodness to your way of life. To experience the many health benefits of Epsom salts, drop one of our Handcrafted Bath Bombs into a tub of warm bath water and soak for at least 15-20 minutes. Heck, a glass of wine and some soothing music couldn’t hurt either.

BTW: Don’t use soap with your Bath Bomb. It will interfere with the action of the Epsom salts.
