Himalayan and Epsom Salts... the perfect pair. Used together, this dynamic duo will not only relax your muscles, but also aid in detoxification via the skin.
What are Epsom Salts?
Epsom Salts are actually a form of Magnesium- magnesium sulfate. Magnesium is an extremely important mineral that many many people are deficient in. Magnesium assists with:
Reduces stress because of its work on reducing overly excited neurons on our brain
Maintains muscle function and energy control
When used in the form of Epsom salts, it promotes detoxification by causing magnesium to move in and toxins to move out by a process called "reverse osmosis"
Reduces inflammation as magnesium deficiency can cause an inflammatory response in the body
What is Himalayan Salt?
Himalayan Salt is a mineral rich salt found in Pakistan in close proximity to the Himalayas. It is generally pink but can be red or white in colour also. Himalayan Salt contains over 50 minerals and can help the body when used in the bath by:
Balancing the electrolytes and pH levels in your body
Induces better quality sleep due to its mineral content
375g Epsom salts
2 tbsp Himalayan salt
Optional- 6 drops essential oil of your choice. Make sure this is therapeutic quality, otherwise you will be adding to your toxic load (get yours here).
Lavender, Frankincense and Roman Chamomile would be the best choices as they also aid in relaxation and rejuvenation of the body and particularly the skin.
