    How to Use

    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. 

    Ingredients:

    100% Epsom Salts - for external use

    1. Is Epsom Salt safe to bathe in? 

    Lucy Bee Epsom Salts are great to use in the bath. Simply add 250g to a bath or running water and lay back and relax for up to 20 minutes, to allow the minerals to be absorbed through your skin. 

    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). They are a mix of magnesium, sulphates and oxygen. They are made from a rock substance called Dolomite, found in the mountainous regions of the Southern Alps. 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.

        Absolutely amazing. The Himalayan bath salt is incredible. I suffer with shoulder pain from writing up on the whiteboard all day everyday and this has been the only thing that has eased the pain. So much so my shoulder pain is now no more. This is going to be a definite repurchase from me

        I have followed Lucy Bee for a long time and knew that when I got to Christmas I just HAD to order some of the beauty items as gifts. I ordered the various bath salts and I was not disappointed. Beautiful packaging, value for money and arrived just as described and well protected for transit. I admire and celebrate everything she has achieved with the company and I will definitely come back and buy again. Definitely recommended!!

        I love adding these to my bath with relaxing essential oils. I workout a lot so often have body aches, but had been struggling with extra tension in my neck due to stress. I chose these because they were high in magnesium (wonder mineral for stress!) and now I love soaking a few times a week as my relaxation ritual. My neck feels so much better!

        Perfection to soak my body after training.

        Hi Jade, 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

        Lindy V

        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!

        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

        These are my favourite Bath salts out of the range! They are very relaxing and dissolve better than the others.
