Our 5 basic blends all have the same base of Himalayan pink salt and natural Epsom salt.
Why did we choose these? SO many reasons.
Himalayan pink salt contains 84 minerals and elements that nourish and replenish skin, in a ratio that is very similar to that of a healthy human body. These elements can be easily absorbed and used by our cells. What can soaking in Himalayan pink salt do for you? It can help remove toxins, balance electrolytes, balance your body’s pH, increase circulation, and give your energy levels a boost. All at the same time as relaxing your body and soothing stiff muscles.
We use a food grade salt that is free from environmental pollutants.
Epsom salt supplies your body with magnesium and sulphates, which are important to help detoxify your body, calm your nervous system, and maintain a healthy gut. Have you heard how good magnesium is for you (a quick Google will fill you in), and that so many of us are lacking in it? Modern farming methods mean our soils are depleted of magnesium, which means our food supply is low in magnesium. Processed food is even lower in magnesium. And sadly, coffee, alcohol and fizzy drinks deplete our stores even further. We need magnesium to cope with stress. Stress depletes magnesium. The more stressed we are, the less magnesium we have to reduce our stress. It's a vicious circle!
You can take a magnesium supplement, but many of us find it a little unforgiving on our digestive system, or don't like taking tablets. However, if you absorb it through your skin during your bath, you bypass those issues, and, frankly, it's way more relaxing to enjoy a good soak!
The Epsom salt we use is a natural, food grade one. Most Epsom salt is man-made. But we thought you’d prefer soaking in natural goodness. We don't recommend drinking your bath water but, if you (or more likely the kids) do get some in your mouth, at least you know it's food grade!
