Epsom Salts is once again back in vogue. And why not ! Countless generations have benefited from its therapeutic qualities. It was once common place to soak in a bath of Epsom Salt and feel the tensions evaporate. In our busy lifestyle we swapped baths for showers and did away with a truly natural detoxifier and relaxer. Many of us have come full circle, recognizing there are no short cuts to good health and wisely returning to some truly wonderful remedies of old! These Epsom Salts are a human grade product of excellent quality that we have being selling to naturopaths & triathletes for years now. Most of our customers are repeat buyers.

Elle McPherson's Original Trainer calls it 'the skinny bath' - article below:


Epsom Salt(magnesium) plays an integral role in assisting the body to rid itself of toxins, sedate the nervous system, supply us with magnesium and sulphates, and in maintaining a healthy intestinal tract. They are beneficial in the treatment of Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and Eclampsia in pregnancies.

Epsom Salts are also widely used in the horticultural and hydroponic industry as they greatly assist in the production of chlorophyll which in turn produces healthy green leaves. They aid in the uptake of nitrogen and potassium which are essential elements to the overall health and vigor of a plant. Most professional citrus growers use it. Roses, Gardenias and Peppers love it also.

We have been distributing Epsom Salts (magnesium sulphate/sulfate) for several years now, especially to the autism community where it is used to assist the body to detoxify. We know our salt and we won't sell inferior grade. You might ask - what's the difference ? It's everything !

Inferior grades are not required to meet the high standards that quality salts do and in their processing cheap chemicals are often used. Whether for human, feedlot or horticulture use, you run a high risk of heavy metal contamination.That's a bit defeatist, don't you think ! Why risk poisoning your body, your livestock or the soil with a potentially contaminated product when a high quality, tested salt is available at no extra expense.

The major components of Epsom Salt are magnesium and sulfur which perform all sorts of biological functions. The two elements break apart and separate in liquid.

Sufficient sulfur is essential to detox the body of toxins and waste. Low levels may lead to a 'backlog' of toxins, which in turn can affect our central nervous system. Most sulfur supplements are difficult for the body to absorb and therefore have minimal effect. However, Epsom Salt provides sulphates in a readily absorbable form to help the body rid itself of waste products and toxins by making them water soluble and therefore
easily excreted.

Magnesium helps to regulate the activity of more than 325 enzymes, and performs a vital role in many bodily functions, from muscle control and electrical impulses to energy production and the elimination of harmful toxins. It improves nerve function by regulating electrolytes and is necessary to maintain proper calcium levels in the blood. Excess adrenaline and stress are believed to drain magnesium, a natural stress reliever, from the body. Magnesium is necessary for the body to bind adequate amounts of serotonin, a mood elevating chemical within the brains that creates a feeling of well being and relaxation.

In The Bath

It is recommended to start with half a cup per bath and increase by half a cup each subsequent bath in case of adverse side effects, which are rare.

The quantity of salts and frequency of baths varies depending on the size of the bathtub and bather. Some use 3 cups per bath every day! The most common protocol is 2 cups per bath, 3 - 4 days per week, soaking for 20 - 30 min. A good practice is to dissolve the salts in a separate bowl ofwater first and add to a waist deep, warmbath.

As magnesium and sulfates are absorbed through the skin they intensify the biological process of detoxification and calm the nervous system. Many people find they have a very relaxed sleep as a result. Any Epsom Salt left on the skin may continue to be absorbed as long as it is still on the skin, offering continuous 'timed-release' input into the bloodstream - like medication given through skin patches.

Some people who desire the wonderful therapeutic benefits from bathing in Epsom Salt but have a pre-existing skin conditions such as eczema find adding oils such as essential oil, olive oil or others to the bath prevents further skin irritation that may otherwise result.
