Anti-Inflammatory Tumeric Foot and Bath Soak is designed to help reduce inflammation and to relax the muscles. The addition of tumeric, ginger, chamomile and calendula to magnesium chloride adds a gentle but warming effect to the body and spirit.
Tumeric- Although its fragrance is mild, turmeric has a peppery, warm, bitter flavor and a bright yellow color that stains everything (but don’t worry, it will come off your skin). Popularly known for its anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric is also a good source of vitamin C, magnesium, fiber, vitamin B6, iron, potassium and manganese; it definitely packs a punch on nutrients. It is also known to stimulate digestion, support the liver, and reduce intestinal permeability.
Ginger- The most common use worldwide for ginger in healing is to calm nerves or alleviate an upset stomach. It is a warm, stimulating plant that triggers the immune system and is great for any cold conditions associated with shivering, low grade fever or walking in the cold and rain.
Chamomile– Frequently used to calm anxiety & stress chamomile is often prepared as a tea or used in a bath. It soothes nerves & calms the mind for better focusing or sleep. Chamomile helps one to relax and it may also be used to counter an upset stomach.
Calendula- More commonly known as marigold—contains anti-inflammatory compounds that may help relieve the discomfort associated with strained overworked muscles and joints.

- Reduce inflammation in the skin
- Remove toxins and heavy metals at a cellular level
- Improve circulation and blood flow
- Soothe skin conditions like eczema, acne, psoriasis and dermatitis
- Improve skin hydration
The Importance of Magnesium for Muscle Recovery
Magnesium chloride has also been making waves in the health and fitness world too, with people recognizing its powerful rejuvenating properties.
Magnesium is required by almost every cell in our body and is especially important to cells in our muscles, particularly during exercise and for post-exercise recovery.
When you exercise, your body’s magnesium levels drop rapidly. This is because it is an electrolyte that is used to conduct electrical impulses and action potentials, such as the contraction of a muscle. When you stop exercising, magnesium continues working, preventing muscles from cramping and spasming, replenishing red blood cells (which have been hard at work providing your body with oxygen). It plays an important role in reducing inflammation
When you take a magnesium salt bath after exercise, the minerals in the water are absorbed into your body transdermally. As a result, blood magnesium levels are replenished directly via the skin, helping to relax muscles, reduce cramping and spasms, restore red blood cells and reduce inflammation.
