For those that can’t fall asleep – apart from ensuring good ‘sleep hygine’ (routine / disciplined practices before going to bed) a 20 minute soak in a warm bath with either Epsom Bath Salts (magnesium sulphate) or Magnesium Chloride flakes can work wonders.

What You'll Need

  • Epsom Bath Salts (magnesium sulphate) OR
  • Magnesium Chloride flakes
  • Lavender Oil (optional)
  • Transdermal magnesium oil spray

What You'll Do

  • Take a 20 minute warn bath with either 2 cups of 2 cups of Epsom Bath Salts (magnesium sulphate) or Magnesium Chloride flakes
  • Drink a large glass of water before, during or after the bath.
  • 10 drops of lavender oil can also be added to the bath for even more ‘sleep’ inducing.
  • Another tip: Transdermal magnesium oil can also be sprayed on to the skin directly before bed. NB: this can cause a tingling sensation initially, which passes within approximately 15 minutes as the Mg is absorbed. You may want to start with a couple of sprays and build up to a higher level as your levels of magnesium improve.
