Epsom salt is the essential ingredient in bath salts. It is found in pharmacies in the form of small white crystals. Very rich in magnesium, it promotes relaxation and muscle relaxation and it helps relieve stress and anxiety. In addition, it stimulates perspiration and thereby helps to free the body of toxins. Its properties can be enhanced by adding relaxing herbs or essential oils.
