Epsom Salt Bathing

Before you try Epsom Salt Bathing, you might want to ask your doctor if it’s for you or not. Some skin and medical conditions might not be a good fit for a salty soak.

And if you have one of those heavenly jetted or whirlpool tubs or in a regular hot tub… the wonders of Epsom Salts might end up hurting your wonderful wet retreat.

Start with a clean tub and add in about 1.5 cups of Epsom salts to warm water. As you ease in, that combination of magnesium and sulfates in warm to hot water has been known to relax away stress, soothe sore muscles, and reduce inflammation. About 15 minutes should be enough to get those benefits but I like to take longer.

I don’t like the way it dries out my hair, so I always make sure to keep my hair out of salty water.

Once I’m done, I rinse off, dry off with a soft towel, and put on some soft clothes to complete the ritual.

And maybe it’s just me, but a few candles and some non-digital reading materials sure to help the goodness soak in. Your milage may vary!

Good bathing, my fellow bathiers!
