Need Some Stress Relief? Reach for the Salt

+ enlarge

Stress, one of the hounds of heck must be banished—one way or another. 

Find relief by soaking in a calming Epsom Salt bath. A household staple, pick up a carton on your next trip to the grocery, for about $9 for four pounds of relief.

Add two cups of Epsom Salt to the water in a standard-sized bathtub; soak for at least twelve minutes, three times weekly. The magnesium in Epsom Salt is proven to relieve stress while the sulfates flush harmful toxins from the body. Soaking in the solution allows the magnesium sulfate to be absorbed into the body through your skin, expelling negative toxins and boosting serotonin levels, which will in turn boost your mood. Epsom Salt soaks also help quell migraines, improve sleep, and reduce anxiety levels.
