Epsom Salts - the what's, the why's the how's
Updated: Sep 21, 2020
It’s time to soak away the day and regenerate with our SaltsAndCo Australia natural, restorative epsom salts. Fill your bathtub with warm water and give yourself a well-deserved break (cause there’s nothing quite like a relaxing soak to get you back on track).
WHAT IS EPSOM SALT?
The benefits of Epsom Salt (also known as magnesium sulfate), is largely linked to its high levels of magnesium. When magnesium is dissolved in water, sulfate and magnesium ions are released. When you soak in these mineral rich waters, magnesium is naturally absorbed directly through the skin, giving you a boost in your own magnesium levels (and in turn leaving you with a spring in your step).
Due to a combination of today’s modern lifestyle and higher consumption of refined foods (or poor diet) many of us are unknowingly lacking in magnesium. So, if you’re feeling a bit depleted, you might just need a little magnesium boost to get your body back on track. What’s so great about soaking in a magnesium rich bath is that it’s a very gentle way to increase your magnesium levels – and better than consuming a magnesium supplement which can cause an upset tummy and digestive problems.
