Benefits of Bath Salts

Throughout civilization, salt has been considered a valuable product. It has been used as a religious symbol, a taxable commodity, a preservative, and a currency. Salts high in minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc, often used for bathing purposes, are called bath salts.

The most common is Epsom salt, rich in magnesium sulfate. During a bath, these salts are absorbed through the skin, drawing out the toxins and relaxing muscles, and leaving behind a calm and tranquil experience.

Mixed with essential oils from herbs, bath salts can provide benefits associated with aromatherapy, such as inducing calmness and promoting relaxation, and ensuring a sound and restful sleep at night. They come in a variety of colors, scents and textures.

Bath salts are also well known for other benefits, such as reducing tenderness, easing stiff and sore muscles, improving circulation, and aiding in exfoliation. They help by opening pores in the skin, cleansing dirt and other toxins in the process. Some better-quality salts are known to improve the appearance of scars on the body.

Since bath salts are known to relieve stiffness and reduce tenderness, they are advised for patients suffering from arthritis, back pains, muscle spasms and minor sports and work injuries. They help in easing small pestering conditions, such as minor rashes, insect bites, and calluses on our feet. Bigger conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis, are also said to be cured through the regular use of bath salts.

Bath salts are easy to make, beautiful to look at in fancy glass jars, and make excellent presents. They can be mixed with relaxing ingredients, powdered milk, and scents or essential oils to suit your needs. Bath salts can be used separately or in combinations to create your own unique enriching experience, for health or similar purposes.
