Amazing Benefits of Epsom Salts
Detox with Epsom Salts
Soaking in a tub of Epsom salts relieves sore muscles and is an excellent way to de-stress the body. Although relaxation has its benefits, perhaps Epsom salts most important use is in detoxifying and nourishing the body’s system. The salts are absorbed through the skin and into the body’s blood stream. This process pulls harmful toxins including salt- hope you’re using sea salt or pink salt! - from the body, flushing poisons out. The salts then replace necessary minerals of magnesium and sulfate.
For centuries cultures around the world have used Epsom salts to treat a variety of ailments.
Regular use of Epsom salt baths has been shown to improve symptoms of:
Stimulates nerve and muscle function
Sprains and bruises
Chronic illness may be relieved as the salts pull harmful toxins out of the body while improving mineral and sulfur balance

Proper Procedure for Taking a Salt Bath:
