Why you need Epsom salts baths

Working in the event industry means that you are constantly moving around and on your feet. This can cause a lot of aches and pains, that will only get worse if not routinely treated. Well I have a relatively simple remedy that can help ease these stressors and make working in the industry that much more manageable – epsom salts

One of my favorite things to do when I come home from a long day and need to decompress is soak my feet in an Epsom salt bath! Soaking just my feet and hands alone will help me relax and unwind! Read some more helpful tips below.

Foot bath

Epsom salts, when in water, break down into magnesium and sulfate and soaking in them allows them to enter your body through the skin. They are often sold, combined with oils, perfumes, and colors that offer additional relaxation and soften your skin. 

Epsom salts should be used in a bath so they are allowed to dissolve and you can soak. The bath water should be very warm, but not hot, and add the epsom salts while the water is running so they can dissolve. The package usually has a recommended amount based on tub size, which is traditionally one or two cups. They should also not be used in any type of tub with jets!

Relax in the tub, with the part of your body that hurts submerged, for at least 12 minutes. For a more accurate length of time and how often, refer to your doctor. Epsom salt baths can be used to treat arthritis pain and swelling, bruises and sprains, fibromyalgia, ingrown toenails, insomnia, psoriasis, sore muscles, tired and swollen feet, and sunburn pain and redness.

Now, epsom salts are different from dead sea salts and bath crystals, which are often sold near them in stores, so be wary. Epsom salts can be found in many grocery, convenience, and natural food stores.
