Unwind & rejuvenate: The perfect Christmas gift


04 December 2023

The festive season is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than by giving the gift of relaxation and self-care? At Newton Wood, we understand the importance of finding moments of tranquility amidst the hustle and bustle of the festivities. That’s why our Epsom Salts make the perfect present for your loved ones, and even for yourself as a well-deserved treat after the frenzy of gift shopping.

A relaxing bath: The ultimate gift to unwind

Picture this: after a hectic day of Christmas shopping, wrapping presents and spreading joy, there’s nothing quite like sinking into a warm, soothing bath to unwind. Our Epsom Salts are the key to unlocking a world of relaxation as they are renowned for their ability to ease muscle tension, promote a sense of calm and soothe the mind. Why not gift your friends and family the chance to indulge in a luxurious bath experience? Epsom Salts are the perfect addition to a pampering evening ritual. The minerals, primarily magnesium and sulphate, are absorbed through the skin, aiding in muscle recovery and promoting a restful night’s sleep.

More than skincare: A gift of wellness

Beyond the realm of skincare, Epsom Salts offer a myriad of health benefits. Epsom Salt baths have been known to assist in alleviating various ailments, making them a thoughtful and meaningful gift for those dealing with specific health concerns. These include but not limited to:

  • Arthritis relief: The anti-inflammatory properties of Epsom Salts can help reduce joint pain and stiffness, providing relief to those with arthritis.
  • Respiratory support for asthma: The inhalation of the steam from an Epsom Salt bath may offer relief to individuals with asthma by promoting clearer airways and easier breathing.
  • Soothing eczema: The gentle, hydrating properties of our salts can help soothe dry, irritated skin, making them a welcome addition to the self-care routine of those dealing with eczema.
  • Fighting fibromyalgia: Epsom Salt baths are often recommended for fibromyalgia patients as they may help in reducing pain and promoting relaxation.

By choosing Newton Wood’s Epsom Salts as a gift, you’re not just giving a skincare product; you’re offering the gift of well-being. It’s a gesture that goes beyond the surface, showing your loved ones that you care about their health as well as their happiness.

The science behind the soak

Magnesium, a key component of Epsom Salts, plays a crucial role in over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body, contributing to muscle and nerve function, energy production and the maintenance of electrolyte balance. Sulphate, on the other hand, supports various bodily functions, including the formation of proteins and the elimination of toxins.

When dissolved in warm water, our Epsom Salts release these minerals, allowing the body to absorb them through the skin. This process, known as transdermal absorption, is an effective and enjoyable way to replenish the body’s magnesium levels.

Indulge in self-care: You deserve it!

We touched on this earlier, but it’s an important topic so we’ll mention it again. Amidst the season of giving, it’s essential not to forget about yourself. After all the energy spent on finding the perfect gifts for others, why not treat yourself to a moment of self-care? Epsom Salts provide a great opportunity to create a personal oasis of relaxation right in your own home.

So, draw yourself a warm bath, sprinkle in our wonderful salts and let the stress of the season melt away. This act of self-love is not only a physical indulgence but also a mental reset, allowing you to approach the holiday festivities with renewed energy and a peaceful mind. We like to wish all our customers – past, present and future – a very enjoyable, relaxing and peaceful Christmas.

I was recently given these crystals as a gift and was instantly drawn to the wellbeing benefits and the stylish packaging. I have found the crystals to be great! I have been using them for a few weeks now, I have noticed that I feel more energised after a long day at work and it’s also helped restore tired muscles after my exercise sessions.
