 Screen Shot 2015-06-22 at 3.40.06 PMWe all know that Epsom Salt is good for soothing sore muscles.  After all, it is believed to boost the body’s magnesium levels, an important nutrient that helps produce its main source of energy and impacts at least 300 enzyme systems.  But did you know that Epsom Salt was also excellent for creating a luxurious at-home spa experience?  Here are some great DIY beauty tips!

  • Glowing skin exfoliating treatment: Mix 2 cups of Epsom Salt with 1/4 cup of petroleum jelly and a few drops of lavender essential oil. Use the mixture to gently scrub away dry skin patches.
  • Microdermabrasion Facial: Mix 1/2 TSP of Epsom Salt into cleansing cream for a deep-pore cleansing. Massage on skin. Rinse with cool water. Pat dry.
  • Bathtime Bliss: Add two cups of Epsom Salt to the water in a standard-sized bathtub; soak for at least 12 minutes, three times weekly. For an extra treat, add a few drops of eucalyptus oil for a refreshing scent.
  • Pedicure Perfection: Dissolve a half cup of Epsom Salt into two quarts of warm water. Pour the water into a container and soak your bare feet for fifteen to twenty minutes. For an extra treat, add a few drops of eucalyptus oil for a refreshing scent. Massage the entire foot with Epsom Salt concentrating on the heels and ankles to remove any dry, rough spots. Then, rinse your feet off with clean tap water and dry them thoroughly.
  • Homemade bath crystals: Mix two cups of Epsom Salt with a few drops of fragrance to create a custom bath crystal. Add a few drops of food coloring or 1/2 TSP of glycerin if you like. Store in an air-tight container.

Often we have found pedicure treatments, well, rather awkward … why must we sit self-consciously with our feet on our technician’s thighs while she squats uncomfortably beneath us?  A posh Beverly Hills salon, Olive & June, took note and recently stepped things up by constructing a six-inch platform for its pedicure stations.  Ensconced in elegant leather sling chairs, clients are now able to relax in a linear plane with their estheticians, thereby cultivating a more comfortable (and modest) experience.
