Epsom salt bath

Post by Tee on Thu Feb 16, 2012 10:05 am

Just came across this - I have had a good result with magnesium - so I am going to have a go at this.... any one else tried it???

Just add one cup of the salt to a warm bath - can add some oil too if you wish - Lavender, Sandlewood or Tea Tree would be my choice............



Epsom salt, named for a bitter saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England, is not actually salt but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate. Long known as a natural remedy for a number of ailments, Epsom salt has numerous health benefits as well as many beauty, household and gardening-related uses.

Studies have shown that magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin, making Epsom salt baths an easy and ideal way to enjoy the amazing health benefits. Magnesium plays a number of roles in the body including regulating the activity of over 325 enzymes, reducing inflammation, helping muscle and nerve function and helping to prevent artery hardening. Sulfates help improve the absorption of nutrients, flush toxins and help ease migraine headaches.

Yes, they are just another form of transdermal magnesium therapy. Supposedly magnesium chloride (in the form of magnesium oil) hangs around in the system longer, but magnesium sulfate is apparently readily absorbed by the skin. I've used it, but only in foot baths, and my skin is too sensitive for a whole body bath with it.
