5 Reasons Why Bath Salts Are a Good Idea

Go the extra mile for your physical and mental health…

Taking a salt bath has extra benefits. It’s one of the simplest and easiest ways to relax and decompress after a long day. Here are ten reasons why Himalayan and Epsom salts are best for bath time.

Soothes Irritation and Inflammation

Bath salts are known for calming skin irritations such as eczema and psoriasis. They not only soothe the skin but help treat the skin and resolve any inflammation you may be experiencing.

Beneficial Scrub Components

If you’re not interested in letting your favorite bath salt dissolve in the tub, feel free to use your bath salts as a gentle scrub to exfoliate the skin. Exfoliating helps get rid of dead skin cells and dry skin flakes leaving your skin less itchy, and more soft and radiant.

Lightens Stress

Putting down our phones, locking the bathroom door to avoid interruptions, and soaking quietly in a warm bath is relaxing all in itself. Add bath salts to your bath and watch the stress disappear! Scented bath salts such as lavender or eucalyptus ease the mind and sinuses and the salts ease tense muscles and tight areas of the body. All are beneficial when it comes to relieving stress.


Bathing with bath salts helps soothe, exfoliate, and nourish the skin. When combined with a good moisturizer, your skin after a salt bath will feel extra healthy and soft.

Helps You Sleep

Aside from your muscles feeling relaxed after a salt bath, you should also feel less worried, and less stress. You should also feel your body temperature is better regulated too! All necessary to ease into a deep, comfortable sleep.
