Tired and aching muscles? Suffering from dry skin, eczema or psoriasis? If so, then I hear ya my friend!
If you’re struggling to find a solution to these issues, then I have just the right natural remedy for you – Magnesium and Dead Sea bath salts.
Magnesium salts (also known as Epsom salts) are well known for their ability to relax and soothe aching muscles, relieve stress but they also improve skin’s health by stimulating circulation and boosting hydration. This is because magnesium salts bind to water, which in turn increases skin absorption and permeability.
Magnesium salts also have soothing properties so are ideal to heal wounds and for eczema- and psoriasis-prone skin.
On the other hand, Dead Sea salts are deeply hydrating, due to their high magnesium content. They also reduce inflammation and enhance skin’s natural protective barrier. Those suffering from oily and acne skin should also make note as Dead Sea salts have anti-bacterial properties, gently cleaning the surface of the skin and also sloughing sway dead skin cells, which often lead to blemishes.
Overall, soaking in both Magnesium and Dead Sea salts can help relieve muscle cramps and soreness, and are brilliant natural remedy for eczema, contact dermatitis and psoriasis.
For the past few months, I’ve been testing a few different bath salts (I should really do a blog post comparing them so watch this space!) and in this post I’m going to tell you a bit more about one brand in particular, Geo Mitchell’s ‘Relax. Naturally Bath Salts’.
Geo Mitchell is a young British natural skincare brand, established by three brothers. Their journey of natural skincare discovery began when one of them experienced the wonderful benefits of aromatherapy to treat breathing problems. Their product range includes not only bath salts but also essential oil blends and diffusers.
So what did I think of Geo Mitchell’s Relax. Naturally Bath Salts?
“A soothing combination of Epsom and Dead Sea Salts, with a unique blend of pure essential oils. This Lavender based blend is perfect to use as part of a luxurious bedtime routine. 100% natural, and mineral rich. Directions: Add 2 tbsp to a warm bath. Once dissolved, sink in and enjoy. One jar will provide approximately 8-10 baths of pure relaxation.”
Size and price: 250ml, £14.50
[disclaim] Ingredients (INCI): Magnesium Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Bicarbonate, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Rosemary, Peppermint, Limonene, Linalool, CI 45100/42090. [/disclaim]
First things first – ingredients. These bath salts boast a very simple ingredient list (which is a good thing! – find out why here), containing only Epsom and Dead Sea salts along with a blend of essential oils – eucalyptus, lavender, rosemary and peppermint. They do contain some artificial colouring though (the last two ingredients with numbers), which can potentially be irritants to those with sensitive skin. Otherwise, mixing the two types of salts (which as mentioned before have wonderful relaxing and soothing properties) with these specific essential oils is a perfect combo. Lavender and rosemary essential oils soothe the senses while eucalyptus and peppermint clear breathing airways and have refreshing qualities.
The smell of these salts is simply lovely, in itself it can relax and soothe your mind. The texture of the salts is quite unique as well, to me anyway. I’ve never come across bath salts ground so finely – they kind of remind me of fine snow. What I tend to find with other (course) bath salts is that they take a while to dissolve in water but with these Geo Mitchell ones, because they’re so finely ground, they dissolve super quick.
The only downside is that they do come in a plastic jar which in the website seems to resemble my favourite glass Kilner jars but it’s actually plastic. It’s a shame it’s not glass but I guess you could reuse the jar, for instance by storing your own homemade bath salt blends.
Overall, the Geo Mitchell’s ‘Relax. Naturally Bath Salts’ are nice bath salts with a lovely blend of beneficial salts and essential oils, both of which will help you relax after a tiring day at work or running after children. I now have my me-time ritual on Sunday evenings when I run myself a bath, sprinkle some nice bath salts and truly take a moment to unwind. I hope you can find a moment for yourself and if you do, perhaps you’ll want to try these bath salts too.
