Both aromatic and therapeutic, Epsom or sea bath salts infused with essential oils are a great way to transform your normal bathing experience into a healing one by combating stress, anxiety, insomnia, muscle aches, joint pain, and skin conditions. Epsom salt, a mineral containing magnesium sulfate, is a wonderful healing salt that relaxes, relieves aches and pains, and removes toxins from the body. Sea salt is chock full of minerals and nutrients that are beneficial for both skin and body and has been known for centuries for its ability to fight such conditions as arthritis, poor circulation, and muscle soreness. Sea salt also has powerful detoxifying properties.
Adding fragrant essential oils to the salts such as lavender, eucalyptus, tea tree oil, peppermint oil, or vanilla, promotes well-being and also helps calm, balance, sooth, cleanse, and refresh the senses, depending on which oil you choose.
There are several infused bath salts available commercially. Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salt Soaking Solutions, for example, is available infused with lavender (promotes sleep), eucalyptus (promotes relaxation), chamomile (promotes calmness), and amber vanilla (promotes sensuality). You can prepare your own truly organic infused bath salt mixture, however, based on your particular needs and tastes.
