I want to share with you today the wonders of EPSOM SALTS; I discovered them a few years ago and they're truly fabulous. I gave all my clients a bag of them for Christmas, and have had some great feedback.

Epsom Salts are full of magnesium and sulphate and both of these minerals have the most amazing health benefits.
Between them they are responsible for helping to regulate over 300 enzymes as well as assisting lots of other bodily functions (enzymes are catalysts for the chemical processes to occur in the body) from muscle control to the elimination of toxins.

Lots of people are apparently deficient in these vital minerals and this can lead to health problems, and the easiest way to absorb them is through the skin - via Epsom Salts.

A diet high in sugar and fats by the way,actually works to deplete these minerals from the body - not that I'm suggesting that any of you eat lots of these foods but...

So the benefits of Epsom Salts :

- they can ease stress
- they can improve sleep and concentration
- they can help muscles and nerves function properly
- they can help reduce inflammation
- they can help relieve pain and muscle cramps
- they can help flush toxins from the body
- they can help prevent and ease migraines

How to use Epsom Salts :

In the bath - divine! This is the most common use, great for destressing after a hard day at work or for relaxing muscles after a heavy workout. Run a deep warm bath and add two cups of Epsom Salts (double this for large baths) and soak for as long as you like, but thirty minutes minimum. Bliss!

Compresses - two cups of Epsom Salts per gallon of water for sore muscles, insect bites and removing splinters.

Foot Bath - one cup of Epsom Salts to a tub of warm water for aching feet.

I'm addicted, try them for yourselves they really are soooooooo lovely.
By the way, if you're local to me I have plenty in stock - email me at If not, you can buy them at good health food shops.

Today's Tip : Think we've been here before but.. you're important, look after yourself.
