Vie Epsom Foot & Bath Salts aren’t some fancy pants, pretty smelling, coloured bath goods but an actually useful addition to your bathroom cupboard.
This is what they say;
While increasing your magnesium levels, Epsom Salt also delivers sulphates which are extremely difficult to source through food but which readily absorb through the skin.
Medical research indicates sulphates are needed for the formation of brain tissue, joint proteins and the mucin proteins that line the walls of the digestive tract. Sulphates also stimulate the pancreas to generate digestive enzymes and help to detoxify the body’s residue of medicines and environmental contaminants.
As the name suggests you can use it as botha foot soak and in the bath. I haven’t used it as a foot soak, other than a washing up bowl I don’t really have anything I could use a foot bath. Ahem, husb, Christmas…..
I have used it in the bath though. Now whilst I cannot vouch for the increase in magnesium levels or extra sulphates within my body I can simply state that it made for a very nice bath. Warm and relaxing and just generally pleasant. Plus, I have felt generally happier and cleaner as if the detox element is working, I mean that could just be because I’ve made the effort to find the time for a few relaxing baths, but it makes sense to me that it’s the salts.
You need quite a bit for either soak, one cup and a 30 minute soak for a foot bath, yes I’m still hinting for one of those nice foot soak things. For the bath you need three cups and again at least a 30 minute soak, bliss. But at £8.95 for a 1.8kg bag, the volumes aren’t anything to worry about.
The ideal temperature is around 39 degrees centigrade. You will need to rinse afterwards as you can feel the salty residue, but I like to this after a bath anyway as I can only wash my hair properly in the shower.
