Epsom Salt and Magnesium Salt!
Epsom Salt helps to draw lactic acid out of the body and muscles and at the same time gives you an amazing “fix” of Magnesium. Magnesium Salt comes from seawater and is very often given to those with severe deficiencies.
With the increasing intake of processed foods within the lifestyles of many as well as excessive alcohol consumption we can easily become magnesium deficient. So here are a few things to take note off!
Magnesium Salts, also called Magnesium Chloride, is the compound found in all Magnesium supplements, but has a different structure than Epsom salt. The molecular structure of Magnesium Salts are far easier absorbed by the body than that of Epsom salt. Magnesium Salt comes from seawater and is very often given to those with severe deficiencies. No doubt, Magnesium is therapeutic to the human body.
Magnesium Chloride plays a vital role in the production of hydrochloric acid (HCI) in the stomach and some people simply don’t produce enough. Needless to say really but not producing enough can lead to a great number of health issues to the metabolism as well as nutrient absorption. Deficiencies can be due to many reasons which can affect the stomach. Production of Magnesium Chloride often dramatically declines as we age and usually stays undiagnosed. Due to the constant declining secretions of gastric acid in the stomach we may have to look into supplementing magnesium to reduce potential future issues.

Transdermal, what does that mean?
I love using my oil transdermal. Transdermal means using the skin as a vessel where the oil, lotion, salve, spray as an active ingredient is absorbed by the skin as a topical preparation. There are many patches of all sorts these days that are used as a medicine delivery system, such as nicotine patches and morphine, they work and so does the transdermal use of Magnesium Chloride. Or try a Magnesium Chloride footbath or bath. It works wonders!
Epsom Salts, also known as Magnesium Sulphate has been known for centuries as a natural remedy for a great number of ailments, health and beauty benefits. It has become renowned for supplementing mineral deficiencies within the human body. The salts are used to treat all kinds of health issues. From strained, sore muscles to sports injuries to mental well-being to relaxation. Most people use it to have a soak in the bath, as the Salts can be absorbed through the skin. So relax and your skin will do the job of soaking up the goodness! Absorbed through the skin Epsom Salts can help in building brain tissue. Pretty impressive! Awesome to support your joints, promote healing of the skin and also great for the detoxification of your digestive system. And even better, Epsom Salts can even be ingested!
When you lack Magnesium Sulphate you can easily find yourself dealing with high blood pressure, restlessness, hyperactivity and yes, even heart problems. The Sulphates improve absorption of nutrients, flush toxins out of the system and increase the levels of minerals that are readily absorbed through your skin.
Epsom salt has to many health benefits to mention. But some of them include relaxation of the nervous system, making insulin far more efficient, dealing with bad skin issues, muscle pain and strain, soothing aching limbs as well as back pain, relieving constipation, soothing and healing cuts and grazes, treating colds and congestion by drawing toxins from your body, supporting and preventing hardening of arteries and blood clots.
Or how about trying Epsom Salt to clear up smaller issues such as Athlete’s Foot, or removing a splinter, easing inflammation, deal with toenail fungus and soothe bruises and painful sprains.
Epsom Salts are awesome for those smelly feet, hair spray remover, blackheads, face cleanser exfoliating dead skin, and to give your hair some real volume. The list is endless! And how about cleansing your your body from negative energy from negative people, or if you are a therapist I highly recommend having a regular bath after treatments.
Itchy skin? Bug bites? Sunburned? Dissolve a tablespoon of Epsom Salt in a half cup of boiled, cooled water in a glass spray bottle and spritz on the skin as required!
