Epsom salts are a prime ingredient in our Wellness Soaks, so we thought we'd give you a few good-to-knows about what Epsom salts are and how they benefit our bodies!

FACT #1

Even though the tiny clear crystals may look like table salt, it is actually completely different! Epsom salts are a mineral compound of magnesium sulfate.

 

FACT #2

Epsom salts are named after the town in Surrey, England where Epsom salts were originally made by boiling water from the natural saline springs to extract the leftover minerals. 

FACT #3

The magnesium component helps to replenish dry skin and serotonin levels, improve sleep, soothe sore muscles, reduce bloating and improve bone health.  

FACT #4

The sulphate component helps detoxify your body, improves collagen production which helps us maintain healthy, glowing skin and assists in regulating blood sugar by supporting our pancreas to produce insulin. 

 

Whether you need to soothe sore muscles, detoxify or just have a little me-time, our wellness soaks contain all the necessary ingredients for ultimate relaxation because we've also added natural clays, other salts like Celtic and Himalayan, as well as essential oils!
