  1. Epsom salt is a naturally occurring mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate, both of which are highly absorbable through the skin. Magnesium plays a number of key roles in the body including reducing inflammation, helping nerve and muscle function, and preventing the clogging of arteries. Sulfates help with the absorption of nutrients, easing migraines, and flushing toxins. They also help strengthen the walls of the digestive tract.

    Below are a few key benefits that Epsom salt baths can provide:

    1. They ease stress and promotes relaxation.

    Stress drains the body of magnesium, and given that most of us are under chronic stress, our bodies are magnesium deficient. In fact, 68% of adults in the U.S. consume less than the recommended daily allowance of magnesium. When Epsom salt is dissolved in warm water, the magnesium is absorbed through the skin to help replenish magnesium levels in the body. Magnesium helps promote a feeling of calm and relaxation. It also increases energy and reduces irritability. Epsom salt baths can help improve your sleep and concentration.

    2. They’ll help you detox.

    The sulfates in Epsom salt flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells helping the body eliminate these substances.

    3. It will ease muscle pain.

    Epsom salt baths can reduce inflammation and ease pain, which makes it a great treatment for sore muscles and migraine headaches.

    4. It will soften and smooth your skin.

    If you have dry, itchy skin or a more serious condition like eczema or psoriasis, Epsom salt baths can help. The mineral-rich bath water can help soften, smooth and soothe skin. They can help keep skin soft and prevent wrinkles. Just remember to rinse off any salt that might be left on the skin and apply a moisturizer afterward. You can also add your own moisturizing oils and essential oils to your Epsom salt bath if you like.

    The great thing is that you don’t have to devote a lot of time to this practice. You can reap the benefits of an Epsom salt bath in as little as 10 minutes. I usually soak for about 30 minutes while relaxing music plays in the background.
