Epsom Bath Salt
You may laugh, but after long runs or my 2-hour workout detox Saturdays, Epsom salt baths are nothing short than a miracle. Adding a few bath salts, powered milk and essential oils in a mason jar is a very practical yet affordable gift. Check out this article on how to make Christmas Epsom Bath Salt Jars.
Cost: $20-$30 for all ingredients for approximately 4 jars
Facts about Epsom Salt Baths: Known scientifically as hydrated magnesium sulfate, Epsom salt is rich in both magnesium and sulfate. While both magnesium and sulfate can be poorly absorbed through the stomach, studies show increased magnesium levels from soaking in a bath enriched with Epsom salt! Magnesium and sulfate are both easily absorbed through the skin. Sulfates play an important role in the formation of brain tissue, joint proteins and the proteins that line the walls of the digestive tract. They stimulate the pancreas to generate digestive enzymes and are thought to help detoxify the body of medicines and environmental contaminants.
