EPSOM SALT (MAGNESIUM SULFATE)
Magnesium is found in abundance in the body and can be purchased both as a dietary supplement and also for therapeutic use in soaking salts. We use USP (pharmaceutical grade) epsom salt in our bath salts to guarantee the highest quality, purity, and potency. Magnesium can support circulation, ease sore muscles, help to relieve minor aches and pains/swelling/tension/restlessness and promote relaxation of the mind and body. Soaking for a minimum of 15 minutes will help the body absorb more magnesium for greater benefit.
SEA SALT (SODIUM CHLORIDE)
We use the highest quality food grade Pacific sea salt from the California coat. Sea salt softens the water, and thus helps to soften the skin while cleansing, and detoxifying. Sea salt also supports minor aches and pains, promotes circulation, calms irritation, and is especially beneficial for dry and/or itchy skin.
