You have probably heard of Epsom salt. A friend may have even recommended that you soak in hot water with Epsom salt… but what exactly is it and why should you use it?
For starters, Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate, which is chemically different than the salt we put on our food. It has a similar structure and appearance to table salt, but that is where the similarities end. Its name comes from the town that it was discovered in, Epsom in Surrey, England. It is composed of magnesium, sulfur, and oxygen with the key ingredient here being magnesium.
Magnesium has many beneficial properties like relieving muscle soreness, reducing aches and pains, and helping you achieve a more restorative sleep. Magnesium even increases the efficiency of white blood cells, helping you fight off infection.
It is recommended to soak in a hot bath with Epsom salt, allowing your skin to absorb the magnesium. Add 1-2 cups of Epsom salt into your bath water and soak for at least 20 minutes to maximize results.
