Give your skin a healthy boost with salt
This gives your skin a healthy boost: Detox in a salt bath which contains some Epsom Salt and Himalayan salt.

Epsom Salt is no real salt. It is a mineral compound that is found in water. It contains a high level of magnesium and sulfate. It looks like large salt crystals. It was first distilled in the town of Epsom, Surrey in England. That explains the name.

If you take a bath and adds some Epsom Salt, the two minerals-magnesium and sulfate works together through the skin — and thus harmful toxins are pulled out of the body (just like the action of a magnet). Studies show that we have an increased level of magnesium in the body after a bath with Epsom Salt.

Magnesium is an important mineral that is needed for the formation of bone and muscles. It also plays a role in the transfer of nerve impulses and a proper functioning of the muscles. Magnesium present in our cells is important for cell metabolism, cell communication, regulation of body temperature, electrolyte balance, muscle contraction, transfer of nerve pulses, heart rhythm, blood pressure regulation, immune system, endocrine system and blood glucose control.

Good food sources of magnesium are whole grains, (green) leaf vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, dark chocolate, chlorella and spirulina. Drinking water also contributes to the magnesium intake.


Himalayan salt is one of the purest uncontaminated salts that exists and it is as old as the earth itself. It has a pink color. Himalayan salt contains 84 minerals salts that our body needs. Add this unrefined salt to your salty bath is similar to immerse yourself in an ocean of energy.

Himalayan salt is available in many variants. From finely ground to large chunks. For a salt bath you can take the coarser variants. You can also crush it using a  kitch salt grinder to use in the kitchen.

Both Epsom and Himalayan salts provide almost all the same benefits when taken in a salty bath, except that their mineral contents are different. There may be many more health benefits of soaking in a salty bath, but basically you can expect any of these that are commonly reported:
  • Helps your body draw out toxins through the skin
  • Its antiseptic qualities treat skin conditions such as dry skin, psoriasis, eczema, acne and rashes
  • Accelerates healing of small cuts, bruising, swelling, strained or torn muscles and ligaments
  • Soothes insect bites and sunburn

How to prepare

Dissolve the salts in advance in a jar with hot water. Use for 1 bath 1 liter of water with two tablespoons of Himalayan salt and two tablespoons of Epsom Salt.
