    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.

    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.

        I do a lot of exercise and love using these in a hot bath after an intense work out. I have recommended and brought these for most members of my family.

        You sound as big a fan as we are! A relaxing soak in an Epsom Bath is perfect for aching muscles. Petrina

        Used a quarter of this in my bath after a 15 mile run. It must have done the trick. Will definitely use this again

        An Epsom Salt bath is a great way to absorb the magnesium and other beneficial minerals. Did you know we donate 15p to our chosen charity, Love Support Unite Africa, from the sale of every tub of our Bath Salts? Petrina

        Love my baths so relaxing

        Great to hear that you're enjoying the Epsom Bath Salts. You should try making a body scrub with the salts and our coconut oil, it leaves your skin feeling so soft and moisturised afterwards. Georgia

        Lauren H

        Been on a 90 day training plan and struggling with muscle aches - I used this in a bath with some Lucy bee coconut oil and WOW! Love it! My skin is so soft and really helped to ease my aches. Great value for money too :)

        Thank you for your great review, Lauren - we're really glad to hear they are helping. Lots of people make a scrub with the coconut oil and salt, exfoliate first then get into the bath and let it soak in. Enjoy! Georgia

        Jade M

        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

        Thanks for sharing. We love this in the bath to absorb the beneficial minerals. Petrina

        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

        These are great. Not only do they look more expensive than they were - we paid 猷5.... but they went down a treat as a gift for someone.

        "L.Harding"

        Used this for a few weeks & I could tell the difference after. A lot less achy & more relaxed. I also used it with coconut oil as a body scrub & it was lovely! Didn't last very long but would buy again.

        "CrisG"

        Love Lucy Bee products, massive fan of her coconut oil range and discovered a new range of bath essentials and had to have it! Been bathing in the Epsom salts for over 2 weeks, can't confirm health benefits yet and compare to other brands but skin feels smoother when added in a pot with coconut oil and used as a scrub! Face has had a massive spot outbreak, maybe this is is the detox period, will continue to use and see if anything changes Bought 2 packs that was packaged well, value for money I suppose. Never used Epsom salts before so don't know what to look for but happy enough with purchase
