Soak and Renew for Self-Care: The Benefits of Bath Salts

Soak and Renew for Self-Care: The Benefits of Bath Salts

It’s no secret that there’s something instantly calming and therapeutic about lighting a non-toxic essential oil candle and sliding into a warm bath. It’s a place where your muscles can be soothed, your mind quieted, and your skin improved – and as you pour in natural bath salts, the list of health benefits increases exponentially. 

Bath Salts Benefits 

When you add just two ounces of Fontana’s 100% natural bath soak to your bath, you’re instantly elevating your self-care routine with a blend of Dead Sea mineral salt and Epsom salt. The two salts each bring their own unique properties, combining to maximize the benefits from your bath – some of which we’ve outlined below! 

Maximum Minerals 

For centuries, people have traveled to the Dead Sea to float in its salty waters and to repeat the benefits of its mineral-containing salt. The salt is chock full of beneficial minerals – more than 10 times that of regular sea salt – including magnesium, bromide, calcium, sodium, potassium, zinc, and more. These minerals – all naturally occurring within the body but often in need of replenishing – each help to cleanse, heal, and strengthen. 

Smooth Skin 

Bath salts not only act as an ideal exfoliant, removing dead skin cells and softening dry skin, they’ve been proven to improve skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. In fact, the National Eczema Association even recommends the use of salt in the bathtub for those suffering from an eczema flareup.  

The minerals within the salts in Fontana’s bath soaks promote youthful, glowing skin from the inside out by balancing moisture levels, purging impurities, and improving the skin’s barrier function. 

Relief for Aching Bodies  

Salt baths have long been used to ease body aches and pains, as the saltwater alleviates weight on the muscles and joints and reduces inflammation, and the warm water promotes blood circulation, which in turn provides muscles with increased oxygen and nutrients. 

For those with arthritis, the Arthritis Foundation recommends an Epsom salt bath to relieve stiff and aching joints. 

Decreased Stress, Increased Relaxation 

Submerging yourself in a hot bath can be calming in itself but add in Fontana’s bath soak and you’re even more likely to see your stress fade away. That’s thanks largely to the magnesium found within the Epsom salts. Studies have shown that increased levels of magnesium boost the brain’s neurotransmitters responsible for reducing stress. Not only that, the magnesium is linked to increased melatonin production, allowing for sounder sleep.

Wildflower Citrus – Scented with lavender, geranium, sweet orange, and lightly colored with rosehip botanicals; our Wildflower Citrus Bath Soak is not only beautiful in color, it’s also a great choice if you’re looking to help ease joint pain. 

Rosehip has been well studied and identified to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, ideal for easing arthritis and other inflammatory pains. In the beauty community, rosehip botanical extract is popular for anti-aging products, as it’s high in Vitamin C, as well as 32 other minerals and vitamins.  

Lemongrass Eucalyptus – If you’re feeling a bit under the weather, you may want to give our Lemongrass Eucalyptus a try! Eucalyptus is a powerful decongestant able to reduce sinus pressure and often included in vapor rubs, cough drops, and nasal inhalers. It’s been shown to relieve sore throats and boost immune health by increasing macrophages in the blood, making lighting a Lemongrass Eucalyptus candle and climbing into a Lemongrass Eucalyptus bath the perfect choice during cold season! 

Lavender – Thanks to its calming abilities, lavender is one of the most popular essential oils and one of our most loved scents! Lavender has been thought to ease anxiety, aid in insomnia, and promote relaxation, making the Lavender Bath Scrub the ideal choice at the end of a long day or in times of overwhelm. 

No matter which scent you choose, we hope our bath soaks leave you feeling revitalized and rejuvenated!
