Epsom Salt Baths – the Benefits

(02) 9922 6116

Epsom Salts Baths contain a naturally occurring compound of magnesium and sulfate [MgSO4]. The benefits of Epsom Salt Baths are easy to reap and is a popular remedy for many ailments. By soaking in a hot bath with a couple of cups of Epsom salts (250g), this can:

  • Relax the body
  • Relieve pain and muscle soreness
  • Alleviate stress
  • Eliminate toxins from the body
  • Reduce inflammation by promoting oxygen and blood flow throughout the body
  • Aid improvement with muscle and nerve function

Ideally, the best time to bath is in the evening before bed. We all know how relaxing baths are and a bath serves as a fantastic precursor to sleep. Once you have relaxed in the warm water, retiring to your bed further enhances the healing process as your body’s nervous system can now focus solely on regeneration. When having an epsom salt bath, be careful not to make it too hot. It should certainly not be luke warm, but rather hot enough that you can last 15 minutes in there before you notice it dramatically starting to cool down.

Of course, it is not advisable to treat injuries with epsom salt baths alone. If you have an injury, you will likely require additional therapy to aid full recovery.

The best epsom salts are available are the magnesium bath flakes from Ancient Minerals. You can get some online here.
