Bath Salts Are Trending And These Are The Best Ones To Luxe Up Your Tub
From Epsom salts to magnesium flakes and more - turbocharge your tub time with these...
According to Westlab Salt Chemist (yes, there is such thing as a salt chemist) Karen Davis, the Epsom bath salts work by way of breaking down to magnesium and sulphate and that these absorb into your body whilst you bathe, kicking off the detox process. ‘Supplying the body with more sulphate increases the amount of toxins that can be processed out,’ says Karen, ‘so upping sulphate intake is a fantastic way to support the detoxification process. Epsom salt, otherwise known as magnesium sulphate, is ideal as the sulphate is best absorbed via the skin.’
Are Bath Salts Good For You?
There are several benefits to bathing in bath salts and a few may well surprise you…
They Boost Your Energy

They’re Great For Scalp Health

If you’ve fallen victim to a few insects whilst outside this summer, hop into a bath of bath salts. The bath itself provides a bit of relief, but the salts take down a lot of the swelling too.
