Hi I’m Vicky Vortex. Today I’m going to talk about the rejuvenating Triple-Salt Baths. When you take a detoxing bath, make sure that you get a water filter first because there are lots of heavy metals, fluoride, chlorine and hormones in the water.
Then you add altogether one kilo of Epsom and Himalayan salt as well as Magnesium flakes. Let me take you through the benefits of each salt:
Magnesium is an essential mineral that plays an important role in over 300 biochemical functions in the body. However, it is also one of the most common mineral deficiencies found in adults. A magnesium salt bath is an excellent option for those with a magnesium deficiency because it’s better ingested through the skin than digested as a supplement.
Magnesium flakes from the Dead Sea consist of magnesium and chloride. It removes toxins and heavy metals on a cellular level, reduces inflammation, bodily stress and fatigue, improves circulation, skin conditions and hydration by balancing electrolytes in the body. It relieves joint pain and fights infection.
Epsom Salt consists of magnesium and sulphate which is important for the metabolic process. Deficiencies are linked to inflammation that leads to diabetes and skeletal disorders. It reduces stress, soreness, toxins, stiffness and pain caused by arthritis, fibromyalgia, gout and sunburn. It also soothes skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It also helps to treat athlete’s foot and ingrown nail, reduces foot odour. If you want to soften your skin, you can add half a cup of olive oil and a few drops of essential into the bath. You can also add baking soda to further soften your skin and it has an antifungal property to reduce itchiness.
Himalayan salt helps with all kinds of skin conditions because it is anti-fungal, antibacterial, antiviral. It also reduces bloating and damage done by toxins by neutralising them with negative ions. It relieves sore muscles by easing tension in the mind and the body, enabling you to sleep deeply with its magnesium content.
If you want to soften your skin, you can add half a cup of olive oil, a few drops of essential oil such as, lavender for extra relaxation. You can also add a cup of baking soda to further soften your skin. It has an anti-fungal property to reduce itchiness.
After your bath, use a dry brush to remove dead skin and to push the lymph from the extremities towards your heart, brush down your back and clockwise on your belly for lymphatic drainage because unlike the heart, the lymphatic system has no pump, so we need to make it circulate manually through massage, dry brushing, skipping or jumping on a trampoline.
