How to use:
Bath: The first step is to schedule yourself at least 40 minutes,
as you need about 20 minutes to remove the toxins, and for the second 20
minutes, the body absorbs the minerals in the bath
Fill up your bath with warm water and drop in the whole bomb.
Shower: Place in a corner or on the shower floor, then turn on the water and enjoy the invigorating scent. If you have a tub shower, turn on the shower, plug up the tub, put the bomb in and let the tub fill up a bit allowing you to detox your feet; let the shower cascade over your body while your feet are detoxing for a few minutes.
Hands: Fill up your sink or a something big enough to immerse your hands, try to break off about 2 inches of the bomb and place into the water and soak for at least 10 minutes. People have found relief after soaking their sore hands in an Epsom salt bath. Epsom salts are a great source of magnesium, which helps to reduce inflammation, and in turn, relieves the pain that accompanies it.
Feet: Find something large enough to hold water that will cover your feet and ankles. Add the whole bomb and soak for about 10 minutes with warm water. Since our feet have the most and largest pores of the body, a detoxing foot soak can be very efficient in a short amount of time. A detox soak with epsom salts is a natural way to draw those toxins out and replenish magnesium of which most of us are deficient. It's an excellent place to absorb the magnesium in epsom salts as well as key essential oils.
The Magic of Epsom Salts:
Magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the
skin and into the body's blood stream. The skin is a highly porous membrane
that both takes in minerals and eliminates toxins every day. Using a powerful
mineral base such as Epsom salts in a bathwater medium creates a process called
reverse osmosis. This process pulls salt and harmful toxins out of the body and
allows the magnesium and sulfates to enter into the body.
Magnesium plays a critical role in over 325 enzymes, helps to improve muscle and nerve function, reduces inflammation and improves blood flow and oxygenation throughout the body. Sulfates are necessary building blocks for healthy joints, skin and nervous tissue. Epsom salts replenish the body's magnesium levels and sulfates. This combination helps to flush toxins from the body and helps build key protein molecules in the brain tissue and joints.
The use of regular Epsom salt baths has been shown to improve the symptoms of many health conditions including athlete's foot, gout, toenail fungus, sprains, bruises and muscle soreness. It is also good for anyone dealing with chronic disease or chronic pain to do regular Epsom baths to help detoxify and de-inflame while improving mineral and sulfur balance in the body.
Contraindications to Epsom baths would be if you are pregnant, dehydrated or have open wounds or burns on your skin. Individuals who are suffering with cardiovascular disease should always consult with a natural health physician who is familiar with the health benefits of Epsom salt baths before starting.
