The wonders of Epsom salt have been well known for hundreds of years. Epsom salt is made of naturally occurring minerals magnesium and sulfate, ingredients which can help improve health in numerous ways. The reasons for such widespread magnesium deficiencies include increased consumption of processed foods, water purification that removes natural minerals, and mineral-depleted soil. Sulfate is essential for many biological processes, helping to flush toxins and helping form proteins in joints, brain tissue and mucin proteins.
Some of the many benefits of magnesium are:
A great source of magnesium Helps soothe muscle aches and helps with inflammation Eliminates toxins 4. Eases stress and relaxes the body 5. Exfoliates dead skin
I recommend a warm bath at least twice a week with 2 cups of epsom salt along with 2 cups of baking soda. You may also use an essential oil such as lavender, eucalyptus or rosemary. Soak for 20-30 minutes.
