1.  Fight Colds Fast

At the first signs of a cold, I give my kids a good and relaxing epsom salt bath. This is our best and most effective way to fight a cold or flu. It really works for us. All you need is 1/2 cup of Epsom salt, and 2 tablespoons of baking soda (*Optional. To help promote elimination of toxins and clean unfiltered water). If your child is over 60 pounds, use 1 cup.

2. Promote Better Sleep

Another great epsom salt health benefit. It helps kids relax and sleep better. Magnesium is such a wonderful mineral that not only strengthens the immune system, but also has calming effects. If you are having problems with your kids sleeping routine.

3. Get Rid Of Toxins

Detox baths will clean the body and get rid of toxins kids are exposed to every day. This translates into a stronger immune system! If you vaccinate your kids, this is a great way to get all the nasty ingredients used in vaccines that accumulate in the body and will stay there if nothing is done to expel them.

4. Relieve Irritability and Stress

Magnesium is really a miracle mineral that regulates the nervous system and may help prevent stress, anxiety, nervousness, restlessness and irritability. You know how your child can be moody and irritable after a long day? Epsom salt baths are perfect to calm them down! Magnesium can also be great for anxiety in adults.

5. Improve Focus And Brain Activity

Bath salts will also help them be more alert and focus more. A proper level of magnesium will regulate brain function. Some experts believe that children with ADHD may have a mild magnesium deficiency. In one preliminary study of 75 magnesium-deficient children with ADHD, those who received magnesium supplements showed an improvement in behavior compared to those who did not receive the supplements.The magnesium in Epsom salt baths can help your children feel better, sleep better, and even perform better in school.  Give it a try and see how great they are! I also recommend a great multivitamin called Natural Vitality Calm Specifics Kids, that has added magnesium. I also give my kids a natural and raw probiotic blend. What I do is add the supplements in their morning smoothies. And my kids rarely get sick!
