The Benefits of Epsom Salt

Each pod is filled with half a tonne of Epsom salt. It has been used for centuries for its medicinal qualities, and offers many health benefits when used for floating.

Benefits of Epsom salt

Epsom salt, also known as magnesium sulphate, is the magic ingredient in our pods which allows you to float effortlessly in the water. Epsom salt has been used therapeutically for hundreds of years after being discovered in an underground spring in Epsom, Surrey.

People report a number of health benefits relating to the high magnesium content, including:

Improved skin and hair – including improved skin elasticity and moisture, reduced acne and allergies, and glossier hair.

Reduced muscle pain, cramping and headaches – as a result of flushing toxins and heavy metals from the cells.

Better regulated blood sugar – as magnesium improves the body’s ability to use insulin, which controls glucose levels.

Improved sleep – as magnesium deficiency can be a key indicator of poor sleep.

You don’t have to float to reap the benefits of Epsom salts. Even a few handfuls into a warm bath can have amazing benefits. Ask a member of our team if you’re interested in taking some home!
