What a little gem Epson salt is, make sure to add it to your weekly health and beauty routine. Rich in both magnesium and sulphates which are both easily absorbed through the skin. Sulphates play an important role in the formation of brain tissue, joint proteins and the proteins that line the walls of the digestive tract. They can help to stimulate the pancreas to generate digestive enzymes and are thought to help detoxify the body of medicines and environmental toxins.
The list of benefits of Epsom salts just keeps growing and includes:
- Improved heart and circulatory health
- Stress relief
- Can help reduce the incidence or severity of diabetes by improving the ability for the body to use insulin
- Improved oxygen use & absorption of nutrients
- Reduce inflammation to relieve pain and muscle cramps.
Properties of lime include increasing feeling of wellbeing and happiness, so the overall combination is brilliant to relive the stress of a challenging week.
