It's not the same as Dead Sea salts, a blend of minerals found only in the Dead Sea in Israel. The water and light there supposedly help skin diseases, arthritis, and other health problems. Epsom salt is also different from fancy bath crystals. They may not be made from the same chemicals, but often have synthetic oils, colors, and perfumes. [Why not make your own?]
In water Epsom Salt breaks down into magnesium and sulfate. The theory is that when you soak in an Epsom salt bath, these get into your body through your skin. That hasn't been proven, but just soaking in warm water can help relax muscles and loosen stiff joints.
While there are plenty of folk remedy claims, there aren't a lot of
studies to back them up. Taking this type of bath probably won't hurt
you, but if you have health concerns, check with your doctor first.
The water should be very warm -- not hot, but comfortable to the touch. Add the Epsom salt while the water is running to help it dissolve.
I love Panaway for when I'm feeling sore.
I love Lavender, Frankincense and Orange to relax and reduce stress
Oh and there are so many more fun mixes!
Acne is something many of us struggle with. Thankfully, I personally only have chronic issues with it while pregnant! It makes me so thankful for my typical skin, but also feel for all of you who have chronic acne! Desperate to find something to help I did what I do best and dug into research!
1st I found that there are several different types of acne. The most common is in teens! The good 'ole hormones are typically to blame! So discovering what kind of acne you are dealing with is an important step!
Acne begins when oil mixes with dead cells and clogs the skin's pores. Bacteria can grow in this mixture, and if this mixture leaks into nearby tissues, it causes swelling, redness, and pus. A common name for these raised bumps is pimples.
Now if you are allergic to any of these ingredients, obviously this is not going to be for you! If you are super sensitive you may want to use less cinnamon as it is hot and may tingle (I use 1/2 tsp of Cinnamon).
