7 bath salts that relieve stress and relax your body

Let the pain wash away

By Shweta Gandhi  April 18th, 2018

In this busy life that we all live, it becomes difficult to consciously take time out to relax, destress and just be. So why not combine your daily ritual of bathing with exotic bath salts that promise to instantly rejuvenate your senses? Epsom salt, in particular, is highly effective, since it is a pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate. When mixed with warm water, the body absorbs the magnesium (which helps reduce inflammation, improves muscle and nerve function and prevents artery hardening) and sulphate (which flushes out toxins, removes headaches and improves the absorption of nutrients). The combination of the two also smoothens and softens your skin.

Meanwhile, Dead Sea salt contains 21 minerals that include magnesium, calcium, sulfur, iodine, sodium, zinc and potassium, which aid in deeply cleansing, detoxifying and treating your body.

Lastly, Himalayan Pink salt relaxes cramped muscles, heals injured muscles and helps remove general soreness from your body with its magnesium-rich properties. 

Take your pick from these 7 bath salts infused with the goodness of essential oils like lavender, geranium, rose, eucalyptus and spearmint, all of which help calm the mind and remove stress.
