WHAT IS EPSOM SALT?
HOW DO YOU MAKE HOMEMADE BATH SALTS?
HOW DO YOU MAKE SCENTED BATH SALTS?
WHAT DOES PUTTING SALT IN YOUR BATH WATER DO?
Epsom salts are actually magnesium sulfate. Adding epsom salts in your bath water allows your body to absorb the magnesium sulfate through the skin. This has many benefits which include:
CAN I USE TABLE SALT FOR THE BATH?
Bathing in a salt bath soak from table salt is not advised. Table salt is not the same as epsom salts. Table salts are not chemically made from magnesium sulfate and therefore, do not have the same benefits as epsom salts. Also, table salts are iodized, which can cause skin reactions and irritation. Plus, if you have any scratches or wounds, taking a bath in table salt would be quite irritating in that respect.
HOW MUCH EPSOM SALT SHOULD I PUT IN THE BATH?
When drawing a bath, you can add 1-2 cups of epsom salts or bath salts to your warm bath water to enjoy the benefits.
