Directions:

Baths:  Children: Under 27kg – ½ cup;  27kg – 45kg – 1 cup for 20 minutes (for a standard bath size) – Adults:    45kg – 68kg – 1 ½ cup;  over 68kg – 2 cups:  for 40 minutes (for a standard bath size)

To experience all these benefits; it is suggested to bath 2 to 3 times per week, for 20-40 mins. The first 20 minutes the body cleanses of toxins and the next 20 minutes the body absorbs the minerals through the skin. For an aromatherapeutic experience, you can add 6-10 drops of your favourite essential oils to the salt before you add it to the bath. Coconut oil or olive oil can be added to add moisture in the skin. Submerge yourself in warm water (as hot as you can bear) to assist in the detoxification. Drink plenty water and rest after bath.

Add a cup of Earths Essentials Sodium Bicarbonate for extra detoxification and skin benefits. Add 1 cup raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar for fungus or yeast infection, athlete’s foot, sunburn, to balance skin ph levels and skin inflammation. You may use a dry brush to open up pores before the bath.

Feet & Hands:

  • Athelete’s foot – soak feet in ½ cup Epsom salt and 1 cup raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar to help relieve symptoms.
  • To remove splinters – soak affected skin area in an Epsom salt basin/bath to draw out the splinter.
  • Treat toenail fungus – Soak the affected toes in hot water mixed with a handful of Epsom salt 3 times a day.
  • Ease discomfort of Gout – Ease the discomfort of gout and reduce inflammation by adding 2-3 teaspoons of Epsom salt into a basin and immersing the affected foot/joint. The water should be as hot as is comfortable. Soak for about 30 minutes.

Beauty Applications:

  • Exfoliate dead skin and face cleaner – In the shower/bath, mix a handful of Epsom salt with a tablespoon of coconut or olive oil and gently apply over wet skin to exfoliate and soften. Rinse thoroughly. To clean your face and exfoliate skin at the same time, mix a ½ teaspoon of Epsom salt with your regular cleansing cream or Earths Essentials Sodium Bicarbonate. Gently massage into skin and rinse with cold water.

  • Insecticide spray – Use Epsom salts on your lawn and in your garden to safely and naturally get rid of plant pests.
