Salt Bath Soaks vs Epsom Salt Soaks
Soaking in a sodium chloride bath, commonly known as a salt bath, is a popular way to relax and detoxify the body. Salt baths are known to help reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and reduce stress. They are also said to help with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. However, there is another type of bath that is gaining popularity: an Epsom salt bath.
Epsom salt is made up of magnesium sulfate and is believed to have many of the same benefits as a salt bath. It is said to help reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and reduce stress. Additionally, Epsom salt baths are said to help with headaches, muscle aches, and skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Epsom salt baths are also said to help with weight loss, as the body absorbs magnesium from the bath.
So, what is the difference between a salt bath and an Epsom salt bath? Well, the main difference is the type of salt used. Salt baths use sodium chloride, while Epsom salt baths use magnesium sulfate. Additionally, Epsom salt baths are said to be more effective at relieving stress and muscle aches than salt baths. That was, until we created the Therapy Bomb®.
You see, each Therapy Bomb has Great Salt Lake Salt as the main ingredient so you get the benefits of a salt soak BUT we also add High Oleic Safflower Oil to help moisturize the skin AND each one has the equivalent of 40 drops of an essential oil blend that we specially designed for all types of needs.
For example, our Apocalypse Therapy Bomb blend contains Cornmint to aid muscle recovery, Rosemary for increased circulation, and Siberian Fir Needle Oil for its calming properties. And if you’re looking to get a good night’s rest, Bedtime’s blend is almost entirely comprised of the relaxing and sleep-inducing benefits of Lavender with the addition of medicinal chamomile (nighty night 😴).
Ultimately, both salt baths and Epsom salt baths can be beneficial for your health and wellbeing. If you’re going to venture into the world of salt soaks though, why not try out some of our Therapy Bombs?
