Tammy Parkinson On Epsom Salt
Tammy Parkinson, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach (www.mybodyfirm.com), posted recently on Epson salt as a "fit-all" ...
This was a big hit when I sent it to a few clients, so I wanted to share it with you all.
Epsom salt—who knew that such an uninspiring ingredient could inspire such devotion? Epsom salts have amazing health benefits. There are 13 ways to use Epsom salts, such as for a relaxing bath, a face scrub, and a hair volumizer. It’s also a miracle cure-all, helping to remove splinters and reduce swelling of sprains and bruises. One ingredient really does fit all!
I always knew that soaking in a tub full of hot water with a few cups of Epsom salts were good for relaxing muscles and drawing toxins from the body, but I could never figure out why. It wasn't until I decided to spend some time researching about Epsom salt on the Epsom Salt Industry Council website that I learned why. I discovered that Epsom salts are made of the mineral magnesium sulfate, which is also a sedative for the nervous system.
When magnesium sulfate is absorbed through the skin, such as in a bath, it draws toxins from the body, sedates the nervous system, reduces swelling, relaxes the muscles, is a natural emollient, exfoliator, and much more.
Relaxing and sedative bath: Soak in warm water and add 2 cups of Epsom salt. Read more about the Amazing Health Benefits of Epsom Salt Baths.
Foot soak: Soothe aches, remove odors, and soften rough skin with a foot soak. Add 1/2 cup of Epsom salt to a large pan of warm water. Soak feet for as long as it feels right. Rinse and dry. In addition, try an Epsom Salt Peppermint Foot Scrub.
Soak sprains and bruises: Epsom salt will reduce the swelling of sprains and bruises. Add 2 cups Epsom salt to a warm bath, and soak. To tame tendonitis, try these tips.
Splinter remover: Soak in Epsom salt. It will help draw out the splinter.
Face cleaner: To clean your face at night, mix a half teaspoon of Epsom salt with your regular cleansing cream. Then massage into skin and rinse with cold water.
Homemade skin mask: Apply the mask to damp skin. For normal to oily skin, mix 1 tablespoon of cognac, 1 egg, 1/4 cup of non-fat dry milk, the juice of 1 lemon, and a half teaspoon of Epsom salt. For normal to dry skin, mix 1/4 cup of grated carrot, 1 1/2 teaspoons of mayonnaise and a half-teaspoon of Epsom salt. This simple honey face mask works wonders, as well.
Skin exfoliator: Massage handfuls of Epsom salt over your wet skin, starting with your feet and continuing up towards the face.
