How long can I soak for, and what temperature?

The important bit of information to take away from here is to make sure that you are not making your bath too hot. In order to avoid this, make sure that your bath is comfortable enough to hop in straight away and cool enough that your skin won’t go pink and sweat. The ideal temperature is 37 degrees, the same temperature as our bodies. Don't soak for longer than 20 minutes.

The benefits of clay and Epsom salts

Using clay and Epsom salts during your pregnancy is not only safe but beneficial for you and your baby! Thanks to our good friend magnesium (found in Epsom salts), those annoying aches and pains should reduce and that much needed nights rest you’re longing for should be just around the corner. Clay has been used for centuries to help reduce swelling and the retention of fluid and is great at absorbing bacteria that can lead to acne prone skin.
