14 of our favourite bath salts to help you drift off to sleep

Bath salts are not only an effective way of soothing aching muscles, but to help us sleep, too.

Formulated with herbal and mineral extracts proven to help induce sleep and aid relaxation – magnesium, lavender, chamomile – bath salts help to relax the body and relieve tension. Not to mention that soaking in a warm, fragrant bath is one of best acts of self-care that can help us unwind at the end of a long day! It’s no wonder searches for ‘bath salts’ are up 83%.

Magnesium salts are one of our favourite bath products to help us sleep more soundly. The mineral can active the part of our nervous system that helps to calm us, while relieving muscle tension and quietening the mind. Find it in REN Clean Skincare Magnesium Booster Bath Salts (£28), or for a more affordable option, we are never without a pouch of BetterYou’s Magnesium Mineral Bath Flakes.

Otherwise, look for known-relaxer lavender, balancing vetiver or calming chamomile, all of which can be found in This Works Deep Sleep Bath Salts.

Simply pour a capful or two under warm running water, light your favourite candle and pour a glass of wine!
