Bath Salts & Epsom Salts Benefits
Looking for an easy way to relax tired muscles? Bath Salts from Epsom salts have been know to do so. Adding a cup of Epsom salts to your bath tub full of water can help you relax those muscles and has several other benefits. See my post here.
- eases stress
- relaxes the body
- relieves muscle pain and cramps
- eliminates body toxins
- relieves constipation
- improves heart health
- may reduce diabetes
The beautiful thing about it is that you can add other natural ingredients to the Epsom salts to create your very own customization. You could make it colorful, fancy, more rejuvenating or just use it plain.
What You Can Add to Epsom Salts to Create Bath Salts
- Food coloring – to add a touch of color (you can use all-natural food coloring)
- Baking Soda – to aid with cleaning
- Essential Oils – So many benefitss
- Dried Herbs (thyme, rosemary, etc).
- Lavender Flowers
- Bath Tea leaves
- Flower Petals
- Sea Salt
All you need is a bag of bath Salts (which is super frugal, by the way) and your add-ins to mix up whatever combinations you would like. You could add just one other ingredient to bath salts or a combination of a few. As an example, herbs plus essential oils plus natural food coloring can create something beautiful.
Two-Ingredient Herb & Essential Oil Bath Salts
This Bath Salts only has two ingredients but it’s packed full of essential oils too since both the Epsom Salts and Bath Tea already have Essential Oils mixed into them. I also love that this Epsom Salt contains other natural ingredients such as Shea butter and Almond Oil. You can get plain Epsom Salts here and the exact one I used with Shea Butter and Almond oil here.
