De-Stress With Bath Salts
Bath salts are a new category of designer drug. The name is derived from cases where the medicines were disguised as bath salt. The bath salt, powders, or crystals are usually different chemically from Epsom salt, but are similar to lavender salts. The bath salt industry has developed a whole sub-industry around these products, which are now available in many retail and convenience stores around the world. There is an active online marketplace where people can buy them.
Most bath salts contain essential oils or scented oils with a pleasant smell such as lavender, mint, rose, or jasmine. There are other bath salts that do not have any scent at all, such as the bear salt, rock salt, or kosher salt bath products. These products are used for individuals with itchy skin, burns, cuts, and eczema. The oils or scented drops can be applied directly to the skin to treat those symptoms.
When buying a bath salt or a bath scrub, make sure the product contains the ingredients you want. Some contain tea tree oil or a derivative. Tea tree oil, which is natural, is a natural antiseptic and can help relieve itching and burning. Other essential oils, such as lavender, can help relieve stress. Deciding on which ingredients to use will depend on your individual needs.
Other bath products use baking soda or sodium bicarbonate as an active ingredient. Sodium bicarbonate is known to neutralize odors and to help reduce the burning effect of spicy foods. Other ingredients such as the pink sea salt and the dead sea salts both have properties that are antiseptic and can help alleviate the effects of bites from insects. Both the lavender and the dead sea salts can also help you relax. However, sodium bicarbonate has been shown to have more positive benefits than baking soda.
One way to use these products to relieve your symptoms is to mix them together and soak in them. They should be ready by the time you arrive at your destination. Baking soda has the ability to relieve headaches and to reduce swelling. It also has the ability to neutralize odors. If you have a sore throat or a cough, it might be worth a trip to the bathroom to add one cup of the pink sea salt to your baking soda and soak in the tub for an hour.
The other way to incorporate bath salts into your lifestyle is to mix them with other items that you soak in the tub. You might find that adding a teaspoon of Epsom salt to your hot bath will help reduce any inflammation in your body that occurs during a cold shower. If you enjoy soaking in the tub, you may want to make sure that you are using the epsom salt soaps mentioned previously because they will further soften the water. Once you have completely soaked in the Epsom salt water, you will not be able to feel the hardness of your skin anymore.
For those that enjoy taking long baths, you will want to dissolve the salt before you add it to the bath water. For this, you will need to dissolve the pink salt in three separate pouches that have been labeled “Epsom salt, lemon juice and clean water”. Pour the contents of the pouch into the bath water and allow it to sit for thirty minutes. Do not add more water than is in the pouch. This will allow the salt crystals to dissolve properly before you add it to the rest of your bath water.
Another way to use bath salt to freshen up the water in your bath is to use two tablespoons each of Epsom salt and distilled water. Pour the mixture into a small bowl and mix thoroughly. Then, fill one of your glasses with ice cubes and pour the mixture into it. This is an easy way to quickly freshen up the glass with something cold instead of water. You can also use this technique whenever you want to add a refreshing twist to your morning coffee or tea before you go to work.
