Bath salts

Using bath salts can be very relaxing as well as easing sore, tired muscles. These recipes use either Epsom salts, or a specially blended bath salt. The latter contains valuable minerals that help your immune system and can be very beneficial to add to your bath if you have scars that need healing or any broken skin. Bath salts can also draw poisons out of your body.

There are various ways of using salts for your bathing rituals. The most simple is to add a good handful of bath salts to your warm bath water.
