One of my favourite things is soaking in an Epsom Salts bath after a long day of psychic work. It works to soothe me on all levels – body, mind and spirit.
Because the magnesium from the Epsom Salts is absorbed directly through your skin it allows even people who find it hard taking magnesium orally to be able to top themselves up with this magical mineral.
Magnesium is an important element within our body. It is used by our nervous system, and also by our muscles. When we do psychic or metaphysical work we also burn up lots of magnesium. Magnesium is a co-factor in over 300 enzymatic actions in the human body, such as co-factoring with calcium to build and sustain healthy bones. It gives us energy, prevents muscle cramps and pains, calms us and helps us sleep.
How do you know if you might be magnesium deficient? There’s a list of common symptoms here.
How to make your own Epsom Salts Bath:
Firstly, you’ll need a bathtub! If you don’t have one then a big bucket to soak your feet in is the next best thing. The ingredients I list are for a bathtub, so reduce them accordingly if you are using a bucket.
Fill your bath with water that is tolerably hot (it needs to be able to flush your skin slightly pink) without burning you. You need the water hot so that your pores open and because it aids osmosis.
Now add two heaped cups of Epsom Salts to your bath and stir to dissolve. Spend at least ten minutes having a good soak!
Extras – for that Deluxe Bath Experience
You can also add some essential oils to your bath to enhance the experience. Use a few drops of Lavender at the end of the day if you want to relax – this is a great sleep enhancer.
3 drops of Rose Geranium, 3 drops of Bergamot and one drop of Vetiver will reduce stress and help rebalance hormones.
2 drops Rosemary, 3 drops Basil and 3 drops of Lemon will perk you up, enhance your mental clarity and memory, and boost your immune system.
Epsom Salts baths also detoxify the body, and work wonders on your aura – that energetic bubble our physical bodies reside within. Epsom Salt baths clear our auras and strengthen them.
I often put a few tumbled crystals in my bath too – favourites are smoky quartz for clearing negativity and low vibrations from my aura, rose quartz for love and nurture, and amethyst for enhancing spiritual connection. I often throw in a carnelian too, as it is a great physical healer and energy booster.
