Mineral baths

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Recently I spent some time in beautiful Colorado and soaked in the natural hot springs they've been blessed with. It was such a relaxing and wonderful experience! I brought my 3 month old with me and he seemed to love the warm waters. I was excited for him to soak in them with his dad and I as the springs contain many natural minerals in them that have alot of healing powers and benefits for the skin.
I am extremely interested in recreating that same experience at home but am unsure how to go about doing that. Does anyone know of any mineral soaks that are safe for such a young baby? The only ones I can find are the Dead Sea salt baths, and those I fear would be too harsh for Shane.
Ideas? Websites? Home remedys? Thanks everyone!!

Peace

just to be simple, epsom salt. here's a link to the epsom salt council, if you want to read about the benefits.

Thank you for that link Peace! I never knew Epsom Salts could do so much. I know they talked about children using them but do you think they would be too harsh for small babies?

i don't think so, but i'm not a dr . we take baths with our LO using them, and have since he's been tiny... we don't measure, but i'd estimate 3-4 cups of epsom salts in a large bath is what we use.
