Regularly ridding your body of toxins and impurities is a healthy practice, and it can also be a luxurious practice if you opt for an Epsom salt bath detox. An Epsom salt bath gently draws unwanted components from your body and provides a host of additional benefits while you soak.
Detox is the foremost benefit of an Epsom salt bath, thanks to the magnesium sulfate found in the salt. In addition to working on the surface to treat acne, redness and blemishes, magnesium sulfate works behind the scenes to relax sore and inflamed muscles from a long day on your feet or a demanding workout at the gym.
Choose an Epsom salt bath formulation that contains essential oils and nourishing ingredients, like Vitabath® Epsom Salts, and you can increase your Epsom salt bath benefits even further. In addition to detox, Epsom salt bath benefits include:
Reducing stress: Soaking in a tub of warm water is relaxing to begin with, and Epsom salt enhances the relaxation by softening skin and soothing muscles. Essential oils contribute to overall relaxation and stress reduction.
Restoring magnesium levels: Magnesium is an important mineral that helps with hundreds of different bodily functions, yet magnesium deficiencies are common. Soaking in an Epsom salt bath naturally increases your magnesium levels.
Alleviating aches, pains and inflammation: Epsom salt adds a stress-relieving boost to your warm bath while helping to alleviate muscle soreness from a long, busy day.
Softening skin: Enriched with luxurious Coconut and Grape Seed Oils, these bath salts are designed to moisturize skin while you soak and enjoy. At the same time, Epsom salts naturally soften skin while fortifying the skin barrier to keep skin hydrated.
Vitabath Epsom Salts provide additional skin-enhancing benefits thanks to the rich blend of vitamins and the superfruit combination of noni, green tea, acai, goji, coffee, pomegranate and mangosteen.
Epsom salt bath benefits are high, and the risks are low. Epsom salt bath side effects are rare, as the risk of magnesium overdose typically only occurs in certain situations when Epsom salts are ingested orally.
As any good spa will tell you, it's essential to rehydrate after a pampering Epsom salt bath. Top off your relaxing bath with a large glass of water and to restore electrolytes, you can add a small amount of high-quality sea salt to your glass of water or opt for an electrolyte drink instead.
Epsom Salt Bath Recipe
The recipe for creating a relaxing, soothing Epsom salt bath detox is straightforward. Your first step is to choose a quality Epsom salt. Standard Epsom salts you purchase at the local grocery may contain additives and fillers, resulting in more unwanted components entering your body than exiting.
Vitabath Epsom Salts are free of parabens, propylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, phthalates, gluten, soy, dye and silicones.
Once you've selected a quality Epsom salt formulation and you're ready for your bath, the rest is easy. All you need to do is pour two cups of your chosen Epsom salts under running water as you're filling the tub. Pouring the salts directly under the running water can help them dissolve more quickly, and you can also swish your hand around the tub to help the salts dissolve.
The bath water needs to be warm enough to relax you, but not hot enough to be uncomfortable for an extended soak. Your final move is to slip into the tub when it's full, recline, relax and spend at least 20 minutes enjoying your Epsom salt bath detox.
