About the Body Scrub Bar Recipe
We love taking baths, but sometimes they can get a little dull. These little bars packed with magnesium-rich epsom salt are perfect for extra exfoliation in the winter or simply tossing into the bath to create a relaxing atmosphere while we soak. The epsom salt helps put our muscles at ease while the aromatic herbs settle our minds.
Epsom salt has been used for hundreds of years for health, skincare, gardening, household products, and more. Epsom salt is actually not a salt at all; it is "a pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate." Our bodies need magnesium to live and properly function.
When it comes to wellness, magnesium is great for:
muscles: magnesium relaxes the muscles by allowing them to function properly
stress: magnesium deficiencies are linked to higher levels of stress
