My body is a temple ~ 1 Corinthians 6:19
Epsom salts pull salt and toxins out of the body while the skin absorbs magnesium and sulfates. Magnesium is critical for enzymes, for oxygenation, muscle and nerve function, improving blood flow and reducing inflammation. Sulfates are building blocks for tissues, including nerve tissue.
To benefit the most from an Epsom salts bath, use the proper amount and soak for the required amount of time.
If you weigh 100 pounds, use one cup of Epsom salts. Use an additional ½ cup for each additional 50 pounds. For example, 101-150 pounds = 1 ½ cups. 151-200 pounds = 2 cups. 201-250 pounds =2 ½ cups. And so on.
Stay in the water for a full 40 minutes. The first 20 minutes pulls out toxins. The second 20 minutes absorbs magnesium and sulfates.
