5 Reasons Why You Should Use Epsom Salts in Your Bath

Epsom salts can be a real game changer to your bath-time routine. This is especially true if you exercise regularly and intensely. The team here at Westlab are proud to be the leading Epsom salt brand in the UK. Which is why this blog post is dedicated to the benefits of our well-loved Epsom salts and why you should consider using them in your baths!

Epsom salts have a wide variety of benefits to your mind, body, and well-being. The following is a summary of these key benefits and why you should give our mineral bath salts a shot. 


1. Supports muscle recovery 

If you’re someone that works out a lot, and you notice you have sore and aching muscles quite often then Epsom bath salts are perfect for you. These salts provide relief from delayed onset muscle stiffness (DOMS), a pain that regular gym goers and athletes know all too well. 

Soaking in a relaxing bath combined with the effects of Epsom salts is the ideal way to prevent DOMS after exercising. We recommend pouring around 2-4 cups into a warm bath and relaxing for around 20 minutes. 


2. Relaxes your body

Epsom salts are made of magnesium sulphate in its purest form. Bathing in magnesium is effective in soothing aching muscles after a busy day, and relaxing your whole body. With Epsom Salts, you can ensure total relaxation when you sink into your bath. 

3. Calms your mind

If you’ve had a long day and just want to relax, unwind, and forget about your worries for a while, Epsom salts provide a solution. Magnesium doesn’t only relax the body, its essential for the regulation of your wellbeing hormones related to stress and happiness. So giving your bath a regular magnesium boost can help improve your mood too.

4. Aids a good night's sleep 

Did you know that our Epsom salt can also help you get a good night's sleep? Magnesium is known to promote better sleep and aid in relaxing your body and mind. Magnesium plays a role in the production of melatonin (the sleep hormone) making it crucial to getting a good night's rest.

5. 100% natural, cruelty-free and vegan

Our Epsom salts are made from pure magnesium sulphate with nothing else added. You can trust in the purity, as we have our salts independently tested to ensure they’re guaranteed free from any heavy metals. We’ve always been 100% cruelty-free & vegan and always will be.
