If like me you hear the words Bath Salts does your mind automatically flash back to the disturbing 2012 CNN footage of the cannibal addict? Well think again as bath salts have reclaimed their good name because in beauty they are back; no longer the kind of sherbet powder hues in dusty glass jars sitting on the edge of Granny’s bath now they have had a make over. Just to make it clear the kinda Bath Salts that I am addicted to are Epsom Salts which if you want to know more about read here and I also love that there is an Epsom Salt Council where you can find out more on the magic that is scientifically known as magnesium sulphate & which has so many uses. I recently got hooked on these granules of goodness after a bout of flu and a recommendation for flushing out toxins and alleviating muscle pain. You basically sit in a bath and relax and then afterwards you sweat out all the crap (that is not the technical process but you get my drift). You feel tired and they act as a natural diuretic so follow instructions. I also just spent a fortune in Whole Foods trying out the Eco Bath which come in nice colour coded recycled tube packaging to differentiate and show the extra benefits such as: Balance & Calming, Detox, Muscle & Joint Pain, Skin Softening, Relaxing and Plain. Try looking to order on line to save you lugging heavy bags of salt around the high street and for Medical Grade or Food Grade in different weights. Although Epsom Salt may be my fave it’s also worth considering some other options if you like a less basic bath experience. Dr Organic Dead Sea Mineral Salts re-energise your cells as well as detoxifying so have a less tiring effect on you and Sensara Kolure are handmade aromatherapy based salts from Sussex which also look pretty good on your shelves. Either way start running the hot water and get ready for a good long soak.
