For hundreds of years, a number of cultures have used Epsom salts for their various benefits. Besides being used for household cleaning and gardening, Epsom salts can be used for detoxifying the body.

How an Epsom salt bath work?
Our skin is a highly porous membrane that can absorb minerals and remove toxins every day. Both minerals sulfate and magnesium can be easily absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream of the body. By using Epsom salts in a bathwater you can create a process known as reverse osmosis.
This process can eliminate the harmful toxins from your body and allow the sulfates and magnesium to enter into your body. We all know that magnesium is a crucial mineral, having an important role in more than 400 enzyme reactions within the body.
Moreover, this mineral has the ability to reduce inflammation, improve muscle and nerve function and increase oxygenation and blood flow through the entire body.
Sulfates, on the other hand, are extremely important for healthy joints, skin, and nervous tissue. Epsom salts can restore the sulfates and the magnesium levels of the body and build key protein molecules in the joints and brain tissue.
The regular usage of Epsom salt baths can treat many health issues including:
- Athlete’s foot
- Toenail fungus

Furthermore, Epsom salts are great for people who experience chronic pain due to the fact it can improve mineral and sulfur balance in the body and detoxify the body.
Note: If you have open wounds or burns on your skin or you are dehydrated or pregnant, you should avoid using Epsom baths. And in the case you are suffering from cardiovascular disease make sure to consult your doctor first!
