You’re welcome! I had seen in it suggested in some places but never realized what a difference it could make. I’m sure it’s different for everyone though.

I’ve noticed different recipes recommended different amounts. Some suggest equal parts.

It helps with alkalinity. I did a foot soak. I estimate I used about 2/3 c salts with 1/4 c baking soda.

I have started doing foot soaks daily, sometimes twice a day. And then a full bath at least once or twice a week. Some people do them more regularly. I try to soak for a minimum of 20 minutes but I think I’m going to start increasing to 30-40 minutes, especially for the bath.

I’m learning that they aren’t just good for the pain and inflammation but also helping detox my body. I’ve had detox problems because I don’t sweat and I have had chronic constipation for too long. For the first time the other day during my full body soak I actually felt myself beginning to sweat.

I wish I can fit all my body under bath water but nope.. Just back part then I have to lay down on my belly for front part but my leg end up not under unless I sit in it.. So if I want full body in it only I can do is in hot bath n there no Epson salt in it at gym

I’m sorry a full body soak is not an option for you. Even just sitting in it will help at least with detoxing and any pain in your legs. And I do believe just getting the magnesium in our body is a huge help.

Well shoot... I make bath bombs (along with other bath products) for a living. Time to start using more of my product on myself! At some point I'm going to make CBD bombs for myself. You know, once the pain level + hand strength + energy level all decide to cooperate. LOL
Thanks for the tip!

Robin Weir

Here is the mix I use. 2 cups Epson salt, 1/2 cup baking soda and I like 6-8 drops lavender oil. Works wonders 20 min soak.

Aluminum free?

From what I understand all baking soda is aluminum free. It is baking powder that can contain aluminum.
