Epsom Salt Effects and Benefits

by Ashley Frost

Epsom salt baths are relaxing, centering, and can actually be healing. Relic Epsom salt baths have many health benefits that can help you become your best self. Connect with the earth with Relic’s authentic ingredients, and discover the abundance of positive bath salt effects that can help you feel renewed. 


  1.   Epsom salt baths are good for your skin. 

Our skin is the largest organ of the human body, and sometimes, it doesn’t receive the attention it deserves. Epsom salt baths soothe dry skin and promote better all-around skin health. Relic delivers four different bath salt blends to enhance the quality of your skin, and leave you with a healthy glow. Our pure Epsom Salt[link] is made out of magnesium and sulfate which aids in the detoxification process, and the added ingredients found in Relic’s other salt and mineral blends [link] have other incredible benefits for your skin. 

  1. Epsom salt baths reduce blood pressure.

Taking a warm bath with Epsom salt is an all-natural way to reduce blood pressure. Just a 15 minute bath each day can lower blood pressure and improve your heart health. Plus, our Epsom Salt with Ancient Mineral Salt  and Tocotrienols [link] acts as a powerful antioxidant for the skin and body. 

  1. Epsom salt baths increase happiness. 

When you ease into a warm bath, it’s hard to feel worried or distracted. The magnesium from our Epsom Salt reduces stress and actually increases the serotonin in the brain to help you feel happier! It’s important to not only focus on physical health, but to make time for mental well-being too. For more tips on creating a stress-free environment, check out “ Relic Bath Time Meditation.” [link]

  1. Epsom salt alleviates muscle pain. 

We’ve all felt headaches, neck pain, and backaches that come from having tight, overused muscles. This is not something you need to just work through, and having chronic sore muscles doesn’t need to be a regular occurrence. Whether you have muscle soreness from a hard day at the gym, tension from work stress, or muscle pain from a recovering injury, the magnesium from the Epsom Salt works to ease your discomfort and help you feel rejuvenated. 

  1. Epsom salt relieves chronic inflammation. 

Researchers are discovering that Epsom Salt baths can ease the effects of chronic inflammation. This even includes the inflammation that can cause digestive issues and cardiovascular disease. Make sure to discuss with your healthcare provider the effects of Epsom Salt baths and chronic inflammation before using Relic’s Epsom Salt and mineral blends since Epsom Salt baths are not for everyone. Make sure your bath water temperature does not exceed 104°F since this can actually cause more swelling. 

Practicing self-care isn’t just a luxury, it’s a necessity. Our salts and mineral blends help heal, soothe, repair, and revitalize the body. 

Soak it in. 

Note: Epsom bath salts are not to be ingested. Epsom bath salts are not the same as “bath salt” street drugs that can have negative health side effects. The drug referred to as “bath salts” can have long-term negative effects on the brain and body. If you’re wondering how bath salts are used for healing, then order a Relic bath blend and indulge in self-care which produces a natural high with positive and lasting effects for your body.
