How to Make Orange Eucalyptus Bath Salts - Articles Surfing

Learn which salts are the best to use when making your own bath salts. Plus a recipe to make your own orange eucalyptus bath salts.

When making your own bath salts and scrubs, we recommend using only dead sea salts or epsom salts. Dead Sea Salts contain a considerably smaller proportion of sodium chloride than other salts. Sodium chloride, which makes up 80% of regular sea salts, and most of solar salt, kosher salt, and rock salt, do not offer therapeutic benefits and can also be harmful to people with high blood pressure and edema.

On the other hand, the balance of magnesium, potassium and calcium chlorides, and a comparatively high concentration of bromides in Dead Sea Salts are what make them beneficial. And recent studies show that bromides are a healing factor for psoriasis.

Epsom salts are also made up of magnesium sulfate. This ingredient is what pulls soreness from muscles, making them great for combating stress and relieving muscle aches. The magnesium also aids in the removal of acids through the skin. Now, here's a recipe so you can make your own!
