What are Epsom salts?
Epsom salt is a pure mineral compound made of magnesium and sulphate. Magnesium performs multiple functions in the body and is a key electrolyte involved with our muscles – magnesium deficiency is a common cause of cramps. Sulphates are essential to the production of protein in joint tissues, which might explain why Epsom salts can assist in relieving muscle tension or joint pain.
The benefits of Epsom salts
The most important benefit of Epsom salts, we believe, is that they give you a moment to relax. Your life is most likely spent juggling family, friends and work commitments and, more often than not, scheduling some “me-time” falls to the bottom of your priority list. A long, uninterrupted soak in an Epsom salts bath is a wonderful way to give yourself some love and care.
