Most of you have heard about Epsom salt. Some of you may even use it regularly. But do you know about Epsom salt bath benefits? That it does more than just make you feel relaxed? Few people know about the joys of Epsom salt, but plenty of people can benefit from it.
With all the curve balls 2020 has thrown at us, our new motto is “prepare for the worst and hope for the best”.
And as we enter the cough and cold season, that’s exactly what we’ll continue to do! We’re trying to remain optimistic that we can effectively guard our families against the many viruses and “bugs” that tend to appear during the colder months. However, the reality is there is a lot to guard off these days. So when the time comes we want to be ready to help our kids with natural, safe ingredients and products whenever possible.
That’s why we keep our homes stocked with Oilogic Stuffy Nose & Cough Essential Oil Epsom Salt and Slumber & Sleep Essential Oil Epsom Salt Soaks since Epsom salt has been called an “all-natural home remedy” by the Epsom Salt Council (www.epsomsaltcouncil.org).
So what is so great about Epsom salt? Well, it is actually not a “salt” at all, but a mineral compound of magnesium sulfate and it has dozens of uses and benefits.
Here are a few ways we use this amazing ingredient in our household:
1) Boost magnesium levels in the body – Magnesium is a supplement that your body needs, but does not generate on its own. Instead, your body has to intake it from an exterior source as it helps to regulate the activity of more than 300 enzymes in the body. Without adequate levels of magnesium, high blood pressure, hyperactivity, heart problems, and other health issues can occur. So how can you boost magnesium levels in your body? Well through diet, supplements, and soaking in Epsom salt!
Soaking in the bath allows your body to actually absorb the magnesium in the Epsom salt, while also helping the body detoxify.
2) Fighting viruses – It’s true! Many doctors recommend soaking in Epsom salt to help your body rest, recover, and detoxify. The magnesium in the Epsom salt helps relax muscles and alleviate body aches. Dr. Theresa Ramsey, co-founder of the Center for Natural Healing in Arizona, says that soaking in Epsom salt helps spur a process called vasodilation, which increases white blood cell production and helps the body fight illnesses quicker.
3) Improve sleep – What parent hasn’t struggled with getting her child to sleep at some point? Well, soaking in Epsom salt can help you sleep better because the magnesium relaxes muscles, improves digestion, balances blood pressure, which in turn, gives you more energy.
4) Reduce stress – Both kids and parents alike are experiencing stress levels like never before. There is so much to worry about and excess stress and adrenaline are known to drain the body of magnesium. So we’re thankful for natural ingredients like Epsom salt that can help us manage our stress. Soaking in a warm Epsom salt bath can help relax and quiet the body, calming your senses and mind.
