Ingredient Profile: Epsom Salt

_MG_0821.jpg

Epsom salt is an ingredient that you might have over looked in the past, but it has so many uses and is simply a must have in any house hold. It's one ingredient that really does it all! Taking a bath with epsom salt feels good, but what is it actually doing?

Epsom salt is absorbed through the skin when you use it in any type of soak (bath, foot) and when it does this it draws out toxins from the body. It also relaxes muscles, reduces swelling and sedates the nervous system.  It also helps to restore magnesium, which helps keep your enzyme activity regular. This is important because a magnesium deficiency can be a factor in all types of health problems. We recommend soaking two to three times a week, it will help relax your body and mind. Don't have enough time for a bath? Try a foot soak! This is especially nice during the hot months.
