Taking a bath can relax you, but taking a bath with this magical mineral can help wash away your anxieties.
A recent feature on New Beauty suggests that magnesium can help lower stress levels. And using bath products with Epsom salt, which is rich in magnesium, will dial down your stress levels. Epsom salt isn’t exactly what you drizzle your food with, but this item, which is easily found in health groceries, has been known to be a great healing and cleansing agent for ages. When it makes contact with water, one of the minerals produced is magnesium, which aside from assisting in about 300 chemical reactions in the body, also helps alleviate stress with its natural calming effect.

Calm Clinic
notes that “during periods of extreme stress, magnesium is often used up in the body”. This makes it very important to keep it replenished through regularly eating dark green leafy vegetables, nuts, whole grains, yogurt, and even dark chocolate. But if you think you are still not getting enough of this magic mineral, you can shower with Epsom salt, or better yet, soak in it for about 20 minutes in room temperature water every day.
