What to do: Add a good shake of the Beautiful Bathing Salts to you bath, just as you get in, stir around then soak for around 15 minutes at least three times a week.
Benefits: Epsom salts are one of the oldest bathing remedies and with good reason; here’s just a handful of benefits:
- They help to calm problematic skin
- Increase magnesium levels
- Relieve stress
- Bring muscular relief to the body
- Help the body to reduce toxin levels
The Problem: Many, if not most, of us are deficient in magnesium – you can take a supplement, try to increase magnesium rich foods in your diet, such as spinach, pumpkin seeds, natural live yogurt, almonds, avocado and bananas…. or you can soak in a gorgeous aromatherapeutic bath with these bath salts.
Why do we need it: Magnesium helps the body regulate hundreds of enzymes and plays an important role in many bodily functions, like muscle control, electrical impulses, energy production and the elimination of harmful toxins. Magnesium deficiency causes heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, arthritis and joint pain, digestive problems, stress-related illnesses, chronic fatigue and a number of other ailments.
The Answer: So let’s get in a heavenly warm bath with Epsom salts. Here’s some science: while the magnesium we eat in foods can be poorly absorbed through the stomach, studies show increased magnesium levels in the body from soaking in a bath of Epsom salts because it is easily absorbed through the skin.

Beautiful Bathing Salts
This is essentially just natural Epsom salts in non-plastic packaging.
I have used these a couple of times when I have had a nice relaxing bath after a heavy 'Body Combat' session. As a rule, I am more of a shower person, purey because I don't tend to have time to have a relaxing bath, but the few baths I had using these salts were truly wonderful. I could almost feel the tension from my workout leave my body and I came out feeling amazing. The endorphins probably had a small part to play in that of course.
The smell was lovely, not too overpowering. Mix the salts with some dim lighting and a few candles, and you've got yourself a spa-like bath!
As always, I love the ethics of L J Naturals.
My rating: 8.5/10 (I wish I was more of a bath person).
