Magnesium vs Epsom Salts

Epsom salts are widely marketed for ailments ranging from detoxification to easing aching muscles.

They’re very cheap and easily accessible from your local chemist or supermarket.

And while these qualities can be attractive, there are some little known factors you may like to consider when choosing your bath salts.

Here’s why we use magnesium chloride instead of epsom salts in our products.

 Epsom Salts (magnesium sulphate):

  • sometimes synthetically manufactured
  • short term relief
  • what is absorbed is rapidly excreted by the kidneys
  • can have dehydration & laxative effects

 Magnesium Flakes (chloride):

  • naturally sourced
  • long term benefits
  • wholly soluble (easily absorbed)
  • elevates magnesium levels
  • relaxes & restores homeostasis

Magnesium chloride has made a splash in the health and wellness scene over the last few years and it’s easy to see why with the long lasting benefits it provides.

This is why we choose to source high quality magnesium chloride for all our magnesium bath and body products.

And since we’ve been using these homemade products for over five years now, we’re confident you’ll love it as much as we do.

We’re excited to share this magical mineral with you, so you can reap all the benefits in nurturing your temple with ease and simplicity when you add magnesium into your daily wellness rituals.
