    Run a warm bath, add 250g of our salt, lay back and relax for 15 - 20 minutes and allow the minerals to be absorbed. Or use in a relaxing foot soak to relieve tired feet.

    Packaging

    Our new recyclable box packaging for our range of Bath Salts has reduced waste by 55%.

    The box itself is FSC card, which in addition to being recyclable, is also compostable and biodegradable.

    We need to pack the salts into an inner bag to a) protect the packaging and b) avoid any of the product spilling through the seams.

    We’re unable to use a compostable bag for this because the salt contains a (very) small amount of moisture* and this would lead to the bag degrading before you’ve potentially had time to use the salt – *this is also why we can’t pack the salts straight into the card box.

    Where am I From?
    Originally a naturally occurring mineral that's rich in magnesium and sulphate, Epsom Salts were first discovered in the 17th Century by a farmer in Epsom, Surrey, hence the name! Today however they are produced by replacing the carbon found in naturally occurring rock called Dolomite and substituting it with Sulphur to create Magnesium Sulphate, a pure mineral compound.

    1. What is Epsom Salt? 

    Epsom Salt has been used for centuries as an age-old beauty treatment. Epsom salts are also known as Magnesium Sulphate (with the chemical formula MgSO4.7H20).

These rocks are naturally rich in salts containing the metals calcium and magnesium, as well as carbon and oxygen.

    During the manufacturing process, the carbon found in these rocks will be replaced with the sulphate, giving us the salts we now know and love.

        Although I know they say you should use Magnesium Flakes after a run, I find that Lucy Bee's Epsom Bath Salts assist with unwinding my muscles and my mind, and I always use these before bed (after said run, of course!). Another Lucy Bee "go-to" product of mine!

        Hi Lindy, Our Epsom Bath Salts are ideal for those who are active, for sports enthusiasts or anyone with muscular pain. What better way to top up on magnesium than by soaking in a luxurious bath with Lucy Bee Epsom Bath Salt and naturally absorb the magnesium - toxins are drawn out, the goodness absorbed and tired muscles are relaxed. Thank you for another great review, Hannah

        Feel nice & relaxed after bathing in this but I do like a bath with bubbles though

        Haha, unfortunately no bubbles with an Epsom Salt bath! Though it's great to help soothe aching muscles and a great way to absorb magnesium. Petrina

        Love this!! I added a little coconut oil to my bath too and my skin felt amazing

        Thanks for your review, the Epsom Bath salts are my favourite! They are great for aching muscles and back pain. You can also make a scrub with the coconut oil and salt, exfoliate first then get into the bath and let it soak in. I hope you also enjoy the other salts too, Rian

        As a marathon runner and triathlete epsom baths have become as regular as long runs. A great way to recover after any kind of exercise and just as important to me as a sports massage.

        I do HIIT 4/5 a week. I bought these as I was feeling achy after every workout; I thought maybe it was a coincidence or I wasn’t working hard enough but the pain stopped! I have ran out of Epsom salts now for over a week & my knees are in agony! I’m amazed & will be stocking up so I never run out again!

        When we push our bodys to become as strong as we can possibly make them, I could not live without this to relax my muscles and allow them to fully recover. When running low I am straight on ordering the next batch

        Epsom salts have been fantastic for me for easing bloating , cramps. Have also been great and really worked for muscle fatigue and any soreness after i've exercised They have even managed to get rid of a verucca by drawing the toxins out. Wouldn't be without my Epsom salt baths /scrubs now. I use them twice weekly as really soothe skin . My husband used them after he was knocked off his bike and they really helped with the healing of his back pain As with all the Lucy bee products high quality and fantastic that Lucy bee donates to love support unite from this product.

        Thank you for your review Ellie and I'm pleased to hear you and your family are enjoying using our Epsom Salts, Petrina
