Soothe aching muscles and relieve stress with this all-natural blend of epsom salt minerals and essential oils. Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) has long been used as a natural remedy for a number of ailments- relaxing the nervous system, easing muscle strain and inflammation, reducing pain and swelling of sprains and bruises, healing cuts and reducing soreness from childbirth, cleansing pores, and drawing toxins from the body. Experts believe that bathing with Epsom salt at least twice a week helps you to look better, feel better and gain more energy.
INDICATIONS Magnesium helps to regulate electrolytes in the body, ensuring proper functioning of the muscles, nerves and enzymes. Stress drains the body of magnesium and increases levels of adrenaline. When dissolved in warm water, Epsom salt is absorbed through the skin and replenishes the level of magnesium in the body. The magnesium helps to produce serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of calm and relaxation. Research shows that magnesium also increases energy and stamina by encouraging the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy packets made in the cells. Magnesium ions also relax and reduce irritability by lowering the effects of adrenaline. They create a relaxed feeling, improve sleep and concentration, and help muscles and nerves to function properly. Magnesium is also known to be critical in the proper use of calcium, which serves as a main conductor of the electric impulses in your body. Sulfate helps improve the absorption of nutrients, flush toxins, ease migraine headaches.The sulfates in Epsom salt help flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances. Your skin is a highly porous membrane and adding the right minerals to your bathwater triggers a process called reverse osmosis, which actually pulls salt out of your body, and harmful toxins along with it.
DIRECTIONS To experience the many benefits of this salt soak, take stress relieving baths twice weekly by adding half a cup to a warm bath and soaking for 20 minutes. Try to rest for about 2 hours afterwards.
