Do you use epsom salts in your bath? Do you use it for your kids? We do, and we have for quite some time. Epsom salt baths have many therapeutic effects. When absorbed through the skin, it relieves muscle tension, joint pain, and inflammation in your joints. It also helps to alleviate tension headaches, or soothe abdominal pain. We also add Epsom salt to my son’s bath a few times a week. Many autism parents also give their autistic children Epsom baths as the sulfates help to flush toxins from the body.
Epsom salts have two main ingredients: Magnesium:
- Ease stress and improves sleep and concentration
- Help muscles and nerves function properly
- Regulate activity of 300+ enzymes
- Improve oxygen use
- Flush toxins
- Improve absorption of nutrients
- Help form joint proteins, brain tissue and mucin proteins
When Kelly said she was contacted by the San Francisco Salt Co to check out their Epsoak® products, I quickly volunteered! They were kind enough to send me their Epsoak® bundle. There were three, two-pound bags inside. Epsoak® Sleep Formula has added lavender essential oil. (Very relaxing! We use lavender every night before bed.) The Muscle Soak includes eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils. (Perfect for sore, aching, tired muscles.) And lastly, their original, unscented Epsoak®.
I swear by essential oils. I have been researching them and using them for my family for about 2 years now. Their uses are never ending, and treating your family naturally is so nice. So I especially loved that Epsoak® makes their Epsom Salts with Essential oils. I have started using the Sleep Formula soak for Liam. While he still gets very little sleep, the blend does relax him, and calm him down for the night. So that’s definitely a win for this home! My hubby and I both use the Muscle Soak at least once a week. Hubby suffers from chronic pain due to multiple spine and shoulder fractures, as well as degenerating disks in his neck. I suffer from Fibromyalgia and other chronic issues. The muscle soak is great at relieving tension in our muscles. The peppermint is perfect for tension headaches too. The great thing about the unscented Epsoak® is that if you use essential oils, you can add your own blend to your bath when you add your salts. So you can customize it to your needs!
