Epsom salts are an easy & inexpensive way to help relieve sore muscles and minimize the lactic acid in your body. They are the perfect addition to a relaxing weekend, after a massage therapy treatment, or an intense workout session. Generally about 2 cups of salts dissolved into your bath for a duration of 12 minutes should do the trick.
The epsom salt’s help draw out the lactic acid and toxins in our body. They are also high in magnesium and sulfate and nourish the body with healthy minerals. Regular salt could have a drying affect on the body, but epsom salts actually nourish our body, increase circulation & provides an energy boost needed for the days ahead.
Add an epsom salts bath to your schedule every week. Feel free to add some essential oils, your favorite music for ambience & even oatmeal (for it’s skin softening benefits but be careful not to clog your tub). Remember to keep a tall glass of water handy, cool cloth and maybe your favorite book? It’s a simple solution to sore muscles and helps relieve your mind, spirit and sore spots too!
