Bath salts have long been used as an easy and inexpensive way to treat mental and physical health ailments. Bath salts, which are commonly made from magnesium sulfate (Epsom salt) or sea salt, are easily dissolved in warm bath water and used for everything from stress relief to aches and pains.
They are said to improve cleaning, enhance the enjoyment of bathing, and serve as a vehicle for cosmetic agents. Bath salts have been developed which mimic the properties of natural mineral baths or hot springs. Some bath salts contain glycerin so the product will act as an emollient, humectant, or lubricant. Fragrances and colors are often added to bath salts; the fragrances are used to increase the users' enjoyment of the bathing experience.

The Benefits of Epsom Salt on The Skin
Magnesium and sulfate have several amazing benefits for the skin and using Epsom salt soap daily in the bath or shower is a great way to reap them. Most of us use bath salts as a way to enhance a relaxing soak in the tub, but bath salts are believed to provide several health benefits for people.
1. Boosts overall health
Studies show that these baths can improve our health in general. Benefits range from regulating blood sugar and improving cardiovascular health, to boosting circulatory and nerve function. We suggest pairing the natural healing qualities of a warm salt bath with aromatherapy for further rejuvenation. Our Pink Mimosa Bath Salt Soap is particularly effective at supporting the lymphatic system and fighting free radicals.
2. Cleanse pores
Dirt, oils and bacteria clog up pores in the skin, causing pimples, blackheads and other imperfections to appear. Epsom salt is an excellent natural cleanser.
3. Aids in chronic pain relief
While we may not be able to free ourselves from chronic pain, we can soothe our bodies in a nourishing salt bath. Warm water baths are highly effective at treating lower back pain, and dead sea salts have been utilized for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
4. Promotes restful sleep
A warm salt bath is perfect for helping us relax when we’re anxious or tense. The temperature changes your body goes through when switching from a warm bath to cooler air can help improve sleep. In addition, the proper ratio of water and salt exposure can help prevent the need to urinate during the night, leading to less disrupted sleep. Our Pink Mimosa Bath Salt Soap is packed with ultra-relaxing essential oils to enhance your nighttime sleep routine.
5. Soothes muscle injury
Being in a warm bath can ease pain by taking the weight off joints and muscles.
It can also help your body to heal faster after an injury or surgery. When used with warm water, the magnesium-rich salt helps relieve muscle spasms and menstrual cramps. We love the idea of settling into a bath with our Pink Mimosa Bath Salt Soap after a hard workout or a long day for indulgent relief.
6. Reduce inflammation
The magnesium in Epsom salt is a powerful anti-inflammatory and can help soothe skin conditions like eczema, acne, psoriasis and dermatitis. The National Eczema Association recommends adding 1 cup of Table salt to your bath during a flare-up to help prevent stinging when bathing. You can also use Epsom salt or sea salt to treat skin irritation and inflammation.
7. Exfoliate dead skin
Due to its crystalline structure, Epsom salt is a great exfoliant. Removing old, dead skin cells will leave you looking smooth and feeling fresh.
Relieve Dry or itchy skin - You can use bath salts to relieve dry and itchy skin, including itching caused by insect bites and poison ivy.
8. Foot soak
There are several benefits to using bath salts in a foot soak. Use bath salts in a foot soak to: relieve symptoms of athlete’s foot, treat toenail fungus, relieve gout pain, eliminate foot odor.
Tips for using salt in your bathwater
- Add 2 cups of Epsom salt into your bath water while the warm water is filling the bathtub. Swish the salt around in the water to dissolve it. This helps your body get all the healthy Epsom salt bath benefits.
- Soak in the bath for 20 to 30 minutes for full effect.
- Use only 1/2 cup of Epsom salt when just using a foot bath to soak your feet. Just make sure you dissolve the salt in the water thoroughly before soaking your feet for 15 to 25 minutes.
- You can add a couple of tablespoons of this salt to your favorite facial cleansing cream. Wash your face as you normally would by gently massaging in the cleanser with the salt into your face. Rinse with warm water and then with cool water. The salt will gently exfoliate your face.
