Have you ever been sick, had sore muscles, dry skin or mosquito bites? I think anybody not living in a protective bubble all day has experienced one if not all of those at one point!
Here are a few of the many benefits to taking hot detox baths with Epsom, Dead Sea Salts, Pink Himalayan Salts or any Pure Sea Salts:
Sweating releases toxins from our body. The main toxins are excess salt, cholesterol, and alcohol. If you have ever been chided for high cholesterol or a high salt intake then you need to highly consider using bath salts regularly.
Being sick impacts our daily livelihood. Our skin produces a natural antibiotic called “Dermcidin” when we sweat. This natural antibiotic fights germs, viruses, bacteria, and bug bites. Cut down your sick time in half, if not more than that, with a detox bath.
Sweating just naturally demands that you *drink more water*. If you sweat a lot you get thirsty. The more water you drink the more you flush out your bladder which can prevent the creation of kidney stones.
Endorphins are your body’s natural mood enhancer. Your heart rate increases when you sweat, thus releasing endorphins. Endorphins are also natural pain relievers. So you will begin to feel good all-around when you sweat.
Get rid of nasty pimples by sweating them out! Sweating opens your pores, therefore the perspiration process will release the bacteria that causes the acne.
MAGNESIUM , SULFATES & MINERAL ABSORPTION
Epsom & Sea Salts contain many important minerals that our bodies need because they are lost throughout the day and need to be replenished. Epsom salts are formed from magnesium and sulfates. Dead Sea Salts contain 21 minerals including magnesium, calcium, sulfur, bromide, iodine, sodium, zinc and potassium.

Pink Himalayan salt’s color as well as its color variations are indicative of its mineral content. (https://draxe.com/pink-himalayan-salt/)
Magnesium, Sulfates, and other Minerals are both absorbed through the skin and into the body’s blood stream. Reverse Osmosis allows salt and harmful toxins to be pulled OUT, while magnesium and other minerals enter IN the body.
Magnesium has many benefits. It stimulates nerve and muscle function, limits inflammation, improves oxygenation and blood flow throughout the body. The minerals in the salts will help athletes recover quicker after a workout.
Have you ever been bloated or gassy? Magnesium promotes gastric activity in the intestines that produces a laxative effect.
Sulfates rid toxic impurities in the liver, improving liver function.
SKIN SOFTENING & SMOOTHING
A bath salt soak will instantly soften and smooth the skin. The minerals can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, inviting a youthful glow after bathing. It also reduces inflammation and irritation caused by dry skin, psoriasis and eczema.
