Bath Salts are here! New herbal bath salts too!
Try out these luxurious, soothing bath salts. You can also customize them by adding any of the following ingredients:
• Epsom salt (helps replenish your magnesium levels)
• Powdered, colloidal oatmeal (moisturizes and alleviates itching)• Powdered buttermilk (softens skin)
• Fine grain Dead Sea salt (the waters from the Dead Sea are unique in that they contain 27% of various salts, a balance of magnesium, potassium, calcium chloride and bromides)
After a hard day, a nice long soak in a hot bath is well deserved and adding bath salts can greatly enhance the experience. Whether you have sore, tired feet from standing all day, or a stiff back from working at your desk, bath salts can help improve the way you feel and ease away the tension.
You might be surprised to learn that adding a little salt to your water can actually help improve your circulation. Bath salts also reduce tenderness and are recommended for people with back pain, arthritis, muscle tension or spasms, and minor work and sports injuries. They're great for easing stiff, sore, muscles and aching feet and legs. Bath salts open the pores to purify the skin, cleansing away dirt, sweat and toxins. They aid in the healing of dry skin, making skin softer and more supple. Salts can help improve common irritations such as insect bites, minor rashes and calluses on feet.
The benefits of bath salts extend way beyond your time in the tub – after your bath, you will feel calm, relaxed and happy.
