A long soak in a hot bath can be very relaxing, right? Of course, but adding bath salts can dramatically improve the experience. Bath salts come in different colours, scents, and textures; from fine to coarse. But relaxation is not the only benefit of bath salts.

Bath salts also offer many other benefits including certain healing properties. For instance, few people know that adding a little salt to your bath water can actually help improve your circulation. Bath salts are great for easing sore muscles and aching feet and legs. Consequently, those that suffer from muscle spasms, arthritis and back pain can all benefit from the use of bath salts.
Bath salts open the pores to purify the skin, cleansing away dirt, sweat, and toxins. They aid in the healing of dry skin, making skin softer and smoother. Salts, such as bath salt, sea salt or Epsom salt, are also good for exfoliation.
Salts can help improve common irritations such as insect bites, minor rashes, and calluses on feet, and more serious skin conditions like athlete's foot, eczema, and psoriasis.
Salts made with essential oils also have the added benefit of aromatherapy. Bath salts can help you unwind at the end of the day and help you get a good night's sleep. They are the perfect way to relax mind and body.
So, what are you favourite bath salt scents? I love sweet scents like; strawberry, vanilla and chocolate. And I also love the classic lavender scent.
