Whether you want to treat sore muscles or just treat yourself, Himalayan bath salts have countless benefits for the body and the mind.

As well as assisting in muscle therapy, they can also be the star of your next self-care night. Can you imagine anything more relaxing than soaking in a warm bath while the scent of patchouli fills the bathroom and invigorates your senses?

The mineral-rich Himalayan salt is known for its trademark pink color and bright health benefits that go along with it. Many people like to eat it on their food, but actually, bathing in it is just as indulgent.

Using natural baths salts for muscle therapy

After a heavy workout or big race, it’s common to get sore muscles. Your whole body might ache, and as much as you want to get back out there, you know you need a few days off to help your body recover. This is due to a loss of magnesium. Low magnesium levels can make you more susceptible to muscle spasms and cramps.

Natural bath salts are a great way to replenish your body’s magnesium and speed up recovery. They’re filled with minerals that relieve sore muscles, fatigue, and stiff joints.

The evening after your big workout, simply slip into a warm steamy bath filled with bath salts. As you soak your body in the steamy water, the salt absorbs into your skin to stimulate blood circulation and soothe sore muscles.

By doing this, your muscles will repair even faster, meaning you can get back to the gym to build your fitness. And because you’ll suffer from fewer muscle cramps, you’ll perform at your optimum. Muscle recovery is an essential part of any workout routine, and bath salts are a luxe and relaxing way to do it.

Himalayan salts release the toxins from your body while also replenishing your skin with the minerals it’s craving. It’s been said that a 30-minute Himalayan salt bath has the same detoxifying effect as a three-day juice fast.

FAQs

What Are Bath Salts?

Bath salts are typically made from salts or minerals that are rich in magnesium. They’re often combined with essential oils for a relaxing and soothing bath experience. They’ve been used for a number of years to help people with stress, cramps, and pains.

Some of the most popular bath salts are Himalayan salt, Dead Sea salt, and Epsom salt.

How Do I Take a Salt Bath?

To take a salt bath, simply pour the bath salts into warm bathwater. The salts will dissolve, leaving you with mineral rich water that’ll soothe your muscles and mind. Lie in the bath for at least 20 minutes to recharge your body with the magnesium it needs.

What’s the difference between Himalayan salt and Epsom salt?

Epsom Salt isn’t actually salt at all, but a mineral that’s found in the sea and rich in magnesium. Himalayan Salt, on the other hand, contains magnesium, sulfate, and over 82 different minerals. This makes it a better all-rounder and more detoxifying bath salt.

Can I Use Bath Salts in a Shower?

If you don’t have a bath or just prefer showers, you can still enjoy the benefits of bath salts. You can do this by sprinkling them on the floor of your shower and letting the steam envelope you. Another way is to use the salts as a shower scrub.

How Can I Use Bath Salts as a Scrub?

Simply mix the bath salts together with some almond oil or coconut oil. Then apply the paste to your body, wait a while, and rinse. The salts will be absorbed into your skin, giving you the same detoxifying results. As well as soothing your muscles, this will also exfoliate the skin.

How Much Bath Salt Should I Use?

We recommend putting a quarter of the container into your bath.

Can I moisturize after a salt bath?

Moisturizing after your salt bath is a great way to complete the relaxing experience.

Try using an all-natural oil, such as our Warm Up Moisturizing Body Oil to lock in the moisture.

No. If you’re pregnant or have a health condition such as epilepsy, high bloody pressure, liver disorder, or heart disorder, you must discuss whether a salt bath is right for you with your doctor.
