The topic of self-care is an ever growing, ever evolving conversation. Consciousness is being raised on the importance of taking the time to care for yourself. This can mean different things in different situations. Sometimes it might call for you to head out with your friends, eat some delicious food and laugh; and other times it might be more along the lines of enjoying a night solo, shutting down your phone/computer, lighting some candles and taking a hot bath. There are many ways in which we can enrich our lives with self-care rituals, and here at Inesscents, we are happy to share a new product category to support you on your journey to balance.
Let’s Talk About Salt Baby
There are numerous salts and salt blends available out there for your soaking pleasure, but what’s the benefit of one vs. the other? Let’s break it down a bit.
Epsom Salt: Epsom Salt is commonly known as a remedy for helping to relax muscles and soothe joints along with numerous other health benefits- but what you might find interesting to learn is that Epsom Salt, isn’t really a salt at all! Epsom Salt is a mineral compound made up of a combination of Magnesium and Sulfate.
- Magnesium plays several roles in the body including regulating the activity of over 325 different enzymes.
- Sulfates help improve the absorption of nutrients.
Himalayan Pink Salt: Himalayan Pink Salt was formed from an ancient seabed that was pushed off the ocean floor during the formation of mountains preserved by a cover of volcanic ash. These salts are rich in trace minerals and when dissolved in a therapeutic bath, these minerals can be readily absorbed into the body.
Our skin is a highly porous membrane and adding the right minerals to your bathwater triggers a process called reverse osmosis. Reverse osmosis pulls salt out of your body, and harmful toxins along with it, leaving you with a sense of both physical and mental ease. If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times, a simple hot bath is an easy way to incorporate some serious self-love into your life.
Why CBD in Your Bath?
Adding cannabinoids to bath salts allows for more flexibility in topical application. Let us explain that a little more. Where one would normally apply a salve, elixir or oil to a specific area(s) of the body - an infused bath allows for all-over relief. It's also important to note that hopping into a CBD-filled tub will NOT leave you feeling high. CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of many non–psychotropic cannabinoids extracted from hemp. Since CBD infused soaks are a relatively new phenomenon, there are few scientific studies on their medicinal efficacy. That’s not to say that these baths have no therapeutic value – just know that we are currently in the realm of anecdata. We can say with confidence that Epsom salts, Himalayan pink salts and CBD are all known to help relax and soothe overworked muscles and joints as well as calm irritated skin. With the addition of skin-nourishing high-grade essential oils, you will leave your tub feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and at ease.
