Mineral Soak Ingredients
MAGNESIUM SULFATE (epsom salt)
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.
SODIUM CHLORIDE (sea salt) FROM THE CALIFORNIA COAST
We use sea salt from the Pacfic ocean, harvested right here in Northern California. 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.
ORGANIC SUNFLOWER OIL (HELIANTHUS ANNUUS) INFUSED WITH ORGANIC CALENDULA FLOWER (CALENDULA OFFICINALIS)
Our sunflower oil is extracted from the seeds of organic sunflowers and infused (cold method) with calendula flowers. Calendula is incredibly nourishing and healing for minor skin irritations. It's anti-inflammatory (supports swollen lymph nodes), cleanses body tissues, soothes rashes, sunburns, and dry skin. Sunflower oil contains linoleic acid (omega 6) and oleic acid (omega 9). Both of these fatty acids hydrate the skin and support its natural barrier function. Sunflower oil also contains E, an antioxidant that helps inhibit oxidation while healing, soothing, and moisturizing the skin. Sunflower oil is non-greasy, and easily absorbed by the skin, leaving you feeling nourished and hydrated post mineral soak.
