For most people, Epsom bath salts translate to long baths. But what if you don’t have a tub at home? What can you do to enjoy the numerous health and beauty benefits of using Epsom salt? Turns out, there are a lot!
But first things first, what is Epsom salt, exactly?
Don’t be deceived by the misleading name. Epsom salt is nothing like the kitchen staple we use for cooking. Epsom salt is actually made from Magnesium and Sulfate. It was first discovered in Epsom in England. It’s an affordable and all-natural remedy for a variety of illnesses. It is known to help reduce inflammation, flush out toxins, boost the immune system and more.
What are the other uses for bath, you ask? We have several suggestions.
If you just ended a busy day but don’t know how to relax, getting a detox foot soak might be a good idea. It’s a great way to pamper your tired feet. A relaxing foot soak can help soften skin, fight athlete’s foot and lift your mood. At least twenty minutes is recommended but you can soak your feet as long as you like. You can even read a book or magazine as you soak away your stress.
Whether you want some relief from arthritis pain or you just want your hands to feel softer and smoother, soaking your hands in Epsom salt can help. It can freshen up your tired hands and leave them feeling softer. If you have arthritis pain, regularly soaking your hands can help with the fatigue and swelling.
Regular exfoliation is necessary to get rid of dead skin cells on your body. With Epsom salt, you can smoothen and exfoliate your skin while boosting your Magnesium levels at the same time. Just mix a tablespoon of Epsom salt with your favorite body wash and apply the mixture to your body. Don’t do this everyday because too much exfoliation might cause your skin to dry out.
