Benefits of an Epsom Bath


Not only are Epsom salt baths simple and wonderfully relaxing, but they also provide a range of health benefits, including soothing muscle pain, relieving inflamed skin, reducing the pain of arthritis, stress relief and aiding sleep.

If you suffer from inflammatory skin conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema, acne or rosacea, the healing properties of Epsom salt baths may be just what you need. An Epsom bath can stimulate circulation in these areas to improve the rate of healing, while also improving the health of the skin and helping to strip away dead skin cells.

Suffering from insomnia or regularly interrupted sleep? An Epsom salt bath an hour before you go to bed may be a quick and simple solution. The soothing nature of magnesium plays an important part in neurotransmitter production. When you have excess magnesium, your body is able to convert more serotonin from tryptophan, which may aid in sleep and the regulation of your Circadian rhythms.
