A Bathtime Treat For the Body, Mind and Soul

December 20, 2015

At the end of a long, tiring and stressful day, there's nothing better than a delightful soak in the tub, am I right? Whether you love adding bubbles, essential oils or candles to your bath routine, it's one of the few moments of the day where you can completely unwind and let go. Did you know that by simply adding half a cup of an inexpensive and easy-to-find ingredient to your bath water, you could transform your precious bath into an even more soothing and restorative experience for your mind, body and soul?

Epsom salt can do just that and has been used for hundreds of years to help treat numerous health conditions and promote relaxation as well as detoxification. Epsom salt consists of magnesium and sulfate, two important minerals that are readily absorbed through the skin. Magnesium is known to relax the nervous system, decrease inflammation, increase blood flow and aid in muscle and nerve function. Sulfate helps to improve the absorption of nutrients and encourages the flushing of toxins from your body. By adding epsom salt to your bathtime fun, you'll not only soothe your aching muscles and heal minor cuts and scrapes, but epsom salt is known to help treat skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. For those suffering from inflammation due to gout or arthritis, your body will absolutely adore a soak in this bath. What's more, it's completely safe for kids and will lull your little ones into a deep and restful night's sleep. Be sure to check out some of our great products that combine epsom salts with healing essential oils to make your bath that much more enjoyable: Botanical Body Soak with Lavender as well as our Bubbling Bath Crumbles for Cold & FluMenstrual CrampsAches & Pains or Tropical Scented.

And let's not forget the feet! Our tootsies can always benefit from a soothing soak in epsom salt; especially great for easing foot muscle or joint pain due to arthritis, diabetes or athletic injuries and wonderful for eliminating foot odours and softening hard skin. Due to its antifungal and antibacterial properties, epsom soaks can be helpful in treating various foot conditions such as athlete's foot. We've got a fabulous product called Menthol Madness Foot Soak that combines epsom salts with mentholated crystals and peppermint essential oil....absolutely divine! 

Take some time out of your busy holiday season to treat yourself to a relaxing and healing soak. You deserve it!
