Epsom salts are not really salt as they do not contain sodium chloride but are a mixture of magnesium and sulfate, two natural minerals that crystallize and form into "salt". Epsom salt has many uses, mainly for its health effects, which are said to have a cleansing effect on the body and relieve muscle tension and pain.

Full body bath:
3 dl epsom salt in a filled bathtub with warm water (note: pregnant women 37-38 degrees). Do not use soap/shower cream or shower off the salt afterwards, it counteracts its effects. Feel free to lie in the bath for about 15-20 minutes. Dim the lights, light some candles & listen to relaxing music/selected playlist for the upcoming birth. A nice moment for you & your baby to relax, connect & manifest upcoming birth.
1/3 dl epsom salt in a bowl, bowl, bucket or similar where your feet can fit with warm water. Let swollen & sore feet lie in the bath for about 10-20 minutes while you read a book, drink a cup of tea or watch your favorite series.
