The perfect gift for Mother’s Day


01 March 2023

Mother’s Day is fast approaching (Sunday 19th March) and you may be struggling to come up with a unique and thoughtful gift idea for the special mum in your life. Fortunately, there is a simple solution that is both affordable and beneficial for mums of all ages and lifestyles – Epsom Salts.

Epsom Salts are not just a common household item, but they are also a popular and effective natural remedy that has been used for centuries to relieve stress, soothe aches and pains and promote relaxation. These salts contain magnesium sulphate, a mineral compound that is easily absorbed through the skin and has numerous health benefits.

So, why are our Epsom Salts the gift that keeps on giving for mums on Mother’s Day? Here are just a few reasons…

Relieve Stress & Promote Relaxation

Being a mum is a full-time job that can be both physically and mentally demanding. Our Epsom Salts can help mums relax and unwind after a long day or week of parenting duties. The magnesium in Epsom Salts can help to calm the nervous system and reduce stress levels, while the warm water of a bath can help to ease tension in the muscles and promote a sense of calm and relaxation.

Soothe Aches and Pains

Mums are no strangers to aches and pains – from running around after a toddler, to sitting at a desk all day. Epsom Salts can help to alleviate muscle soreness, joint pain and stiffness, making them the perfect gift for mums who could use a little relief. The magnesium in Epsom Salts is known to reduce inflammation and improve circulation, which can help to speed up the healing process and reduce pain and discomfort.

Improve Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep is essential for mums who need to be alert and energetic during the day. Newton Wood Epsom Salts can help to improve sleep quality by promoting relaxation and reducing stress levels. The magnesium can also help to regulate the production of the hormone melatonin, which is responsible for regulating sleep patterns. A warm bath with the salts before bed can help mums to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

Improve Skin Health

Mums deserve to pamper themselves and take care of their skin, and our Epsom Salts can help with that too. Soaking in a bath with salts can help to exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth. Plus the magnesium can also help to reduce inflammation and improve skin hydration, helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – a win-win!

Affordable and Easy to Use

As a gift idea, Epsom Salts are an affordable and practical option and suitable for mums of all ages and lifestyles. They can be used in a variety of ways, from a relaxing bath to a foot soak or even as a gentle exfoliator. Plus, they are all-natural and free of harsh chemicals or additives, making them a safe and gentle option for sensitive skin.

Our beautifully packaged Epsom Salts are the gift that keep on giving and are suitable for all mums – whatever they do. Whether your mum is busy working full time, a stay-at-home mum, or a grandma who deserves a little pampering, Newton Wood’s Epsom Salts can help her to relax, soothe her aches and pains and promote better sleep and skin health. What’s not to love? (apart from mum of course!)

I LOVE these crystals! I'm not a bath-taker, so I was excited to discover that I could use it in the shower. I was also particularly excited to try it in my shampoo and let me tell you — the results were amazing! I've never found washing my hair to be a particularly fun experience, but these crystals, dare I say it, actually made washing my hair fun. My hair also looks amazing! It's softer and my curls are bouncier. I will definitely be using this every time I wash my hair! Tip: You just need one scoop in your shampoo. I recommend mixing it in a bowl beforehand.
