Commonly used in Ayurveda, mustard baths can help tone and soothe worn out muscles and nerves, and can promote complete relaxation of mind and body, thereby inducing deep sleep. It is believed that mustard baths can warm up our muscles and promote blood circulation. It can help to soothe muscles and joint stiffness, thereby reducing joint pain and general body aches. Mustard baths are said to stimulate sweat glands to produce more sweat and open our skin pores. This can help remove toxins from the body, thereby detoxifying it.
When used in baths, magnesium (salt) is important for combating both stress and fluid retention, slowing skin aging and calming the nervous system. Potassium energizes the body, helps to balance skin moisture and is a crucial mineral to replenish following intense exercise. Bromides act to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles. Sodium is important for the lymphatic fluid balance (this in turn is important for immune system function). Bathing in our high quality Epsom and sea salt blend could replenish the minerals that are critical to your skin’s metabolism.
