Using Epsom salt to relieve stress

Epsom salt stress reliefAn Epsom salt bath is a great way to sooth your nerves and to unwind after a stressful day. When we are subject to stress and tension, the level of magnesium in our body decreases – it gets depleted by the stress.

Magnesium is important for the production of serotonin, the feel good hormone. We need to replenish the magnesium in order to enable the body to make adequate amounts of serotonin. Serotonin enhances our mood, lifts our spirits and restores our sense of wellbeing.

Since an Epsom salt bath will refuel your body’s supply of magnesium, it can be a great way to help your body and mind cope with everyday stress and prepare them for undisturbed sleep.
