How To Use Bath Salts

Young people these days lead a very busy life. Naturally, they keep looking for easy ways to gain physical and mental relaxation. In this context, I must say that I have heard of many youngsters, who are leading a hectic life and consider using bath salts as a means to relax. I thought of rummaging through the virtual world to get some information related to the use of bath salts. Thus, I am here with another of my research articles on Bath Salts.

What makes bath salts a sought-after product these days? The reasons are easy to guess. Not only are these bath salts incredibly easy to procure given the fact that they are readily available these days, they are convenient to use and definitely help to add a dimension to the old and monotonous process of taking a shower. Taking a bath is always very refreshing. Adding bath salts would only help to make it a more refreshing experience and that too without having to put in a little effort! Wondering how can bath salts be used effectively? Read on to know every basic fact related to bath salts!

Bath salts: What are they?

To be very precise, bath salts are sea salts. But they are definitely different from the plain sea salts that we know of, as bath salts come in a variety of textures, sizes and colors. Bath salts can be either natural or processed. However, to reap the best benefits, it is always better to go for completely pure and natural bath salts as they are loaded with the goodness of minerals and soothing properties.

Benefits of Bath Salts:

  • Bath salts are known to be the secret of youthful and healthy skin. Actually, bath salts contain minerals and nutrients (like potassium, magnesium, bromide, calcium, sodium) that make your skin look smooth.
  • Moreover, it allows your skin to have a natural glow by doing away with impurities. It helps to detoxify the skin and cleanse it thoroughly.
  • It lets you have a luxurious and soothing shower experience that helps you to relax in a wonderful way!
  • Bath salts are known to deliver amazing health benefits too like lowering of blood pressure and treating soreness of muscles apart from treating other problems like itchiness and insomnia.
  • Bath salts can also be used as cleansers and scrubs, and thus makes you experience something more than a lush showering experience.

How To Use Bath Salts in Shower:

Using bath salts is very easy. Here are the simple steps you need to follow:

1. Take the required amount of bath salt (two cups at the most) in a cheesecloth bag or a square piece of cloth and seal the salts inside by tying a string.
2. Full the bathtub with water.
3. The bag needs to be dropped in the water and then spun round so that the salts are dissolved.
4. Take your bath and rinse the cloth or bag with fresh water.

Users of bath salts: Suitability

Until and unless you suffer from some medical condition which tells you otherwise, everyone can enjoy a shower with bath salts. Men and women, even children of any age group may use it. There can be problems if you are prone to allergies; however, there is one or the other variety to suit the needs of each and everyone! In case of pregnant women, it is advised that she consults the physician before using bath salts.

How To Use Bath Salts:  Useful Tips

  • Using bath salts for a relaxing bath towards the end of the day helps you to unwind and forget the hectic schedule of the day.
  • If you have open sores on the surface of your skin, don’t go for bath salts as they might cause irritation. For that matter, it is better not to shave while you are using bath salts in shower as that too might cause irritation.
  • Try to store bath salts in a cool and dry place.
  • If you are not willing to go for readymade bath salts, it is possible for you to make your own bath salt at home by mixing sea salts, Epsom salts and essential oils in appropriate quantities.

Lovely article :) but I don’t have a bathtub :/ can I still use them?

Reply

Somreeta Mukherjee May 11, 2012 at 10:47 am

u may…though the body relaxation wont be of the extreme kind!!! coz there wont be a chance for ur body to soak the benefits of the salts. u may use a spray bottle and spray it on ur body after bath. alternately, u may use it in ur bucket of water and use a mug to slowly puor the water on ut body…take as much time as u can :)

Nandini May 11, 2012 at 11:18 am

hey, thanks for the article. i want to know if the sea salts are the normal hard salts that we get in shops also what are Epsom salts ?

Reply

Somreeta Mukherjee May 11, 2012 at 10:54 am

they r a bit diffrent in the sense that sea salts r considered more healthy Gurpreet..u may check the link- http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/sea-salt/AN01142
epsom salts r chemical salts which are used extensively for beauty applications… u may read abt it in Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnesium_sulfate :)
