31 Day Skin Care Re-Boot Challenge- Day 9
Try An Epson Salt Bath With Essential Oils
Even though we know certain things are beneficial for our health many times we just get caught up with our daily routine and are too tired to do anything that seems like it takes any extra work, even if it’s something that is totally relaxing and healthy.
Epson salt baths are one easy way to address an array of concerns and body discomfort. Epson salt is not actually salt but a naturally occurring mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate.
Epson salt has many natural health benefits and is a natural remedy for a number of physical ailments. Magnesium and sulfate are absorbed through the skin so enjoying an epson salt bath is the ideal way to reap the benefits.
7 Benefits of Epson Salt
- Boosts Magnesium Levels
- Improves Blood Sugar Levels
- Reduces Stress
- Eliminates Toxins

- Volumize Hair
Take time, 20 minutes once a week to detoxify your body and feel the difference from the inside out:
Sit in a hot tub that contains a handful of Epson salts, approximately 8-12 drops of Lavender essential oil and 1/2 cup of baking soda. This combo detoxifies , lowers stress- related hormones, and balances ph levels of the skin.
There are many essential oils that can be of benefit, if Lavender isn’t your cup of tea try any of these other oils:
For Dehydrated skin – Geranium- also relieves Osteoarthritis, Environmental stress, Impetigo, Soothes breasts, Insomnia, Sensitive skin, Wrinkles , Libido, Diarrhea, Hernia ( Incision) .

Essential oils are a “lifetime study”, these are just a handful of oils that can be used t o address some common issues. I will be doing a number of blog posts on essential oils in the future, see how many uses they have and what positive effects they can have in your life!
