Epsom Salt Bath with Essential Oils

I LOVE a good hot bubble bath, I use Epsom salt & my Young Living Essential Oils..So i though today I would share with your guys!

Not only is the bath relaxing & stress relief ,it is also made up of magnesium and sulfate, which can help improve health in numerous ways !

 

So Why use Epsom salt in bath?

  • It is a simple, fast, rewarding, sensory and health enriching activity that your kids will love!
  • It will nourish the whole family (many of us are actually deficient in magnesium, plus magnesium helps us absorb calcium). Magnesium is also way better absorbed through the skin, than through digestion
  • It is a gentle detoxifier that is safe for the whole family.
  • Reduces inflammation and muscle pain.
  •  Helps relieve stress by nourishing the adrenals, as well as sedating and toning the nervous system.
  • It makes bath time luxurious and fun!  I love a HOT bubble bath!
  • Sulphate triggers the pancreas to release digestive enzymes, helps form proteins in joints, brain tissue and mucin proteins

According to the Epsom Salt Industry Council, Epsom salt is made up of magnesium and sulfate, which can help improve health in numerous ways. A lack of magnesium—which helps regulate the activity of more than 300 enzymes in the body—can contribute to high blood pressure, hyperactivity, heart problems and other health issues, doctors warn. Sulfate is essential for many biological processes. It helps to flush toxins and form proteins in joints, brain tissue and mucin proteins.

    Vi- What fun! Such a great idea for a gift for others. I like your idea of having folks post on your FB book! :-) Alas, our tubs are all to sallow for a good soak. :-(
    Enjoyed your post.

    HI Audrey. This takes me back about 20 years to a fun party a friend organized before the holidays. Everyone brought their own selection of jars and epsom salts, and she supplied the oils and fragrances. We each got to mix up our own special gifts for friends. I love the recipes you shared, and although I seldom take baths, this might inspire me to jump in the tub again!
