How to Make Orange Eucalyptus Bath Salts
When making your own bath salts and scrubs, we recommend using
only dead sea salts or epsom salts. Dead Sea Salts contain a
considerably smaller proportion of sodium chloride than other
salts. Sodium chloride, which makes up 80% of regular sea salts,
and most of solar salt, kosher salt, and rock salt, do not offer
therapeutic benefits and can also be harmful to people with high
blood pressure and edema.
On the other hand, the balance of magnesium, potassium and
calcium chlorides, and a comparatively high concentration of
bromides in Dead Sea Salts are what make them beneficial. And
recent studies show that bromides are a healing factor for
Epsom salts are also made up of magnesium sulfate. This
ingredient is what pulls soreness from muscles, making them great
for combating stress and relieving muscle aches. The magnesium also
aids in the removal of acids through the skin. Now, here's a recipe
so you can make your own!
