Our Story

John O'Connor

Hi, I’m John O’Connor. I’m a writer, and holistic medicine enthusiast, living in Austin, Texas. Some of the time, I’m also a stressed out entrepreneur, which means I don’t always get as much sleep as I’d like.

When a holistic doctor friend first told me about the benefits of taking Epsom salt baths, I was skeptical, but gave it a shot. I was amazed at how calm I was when I got out of the tub, and how well I slept immediately after.

Epsom salt was like magic for me. How had I never heard of this before?

Salt baths have a number of documented health benefits, but for me the main benefit was relaxation and sleep. After digging into the science, it became clear why Epsom salts are so amazing at helping people sleep: they help us absorb magnesium, a key regulator of cortisol (the stress hormone) and melatonin (the sleep hormone).

In fact, clinical studies have shown that magnesium reduces stress and helps us sleep.

Rather than continuing to label bath salt products after the main ingredient, I named Sleep Salts after what they help me do: relax and sleep.

Our salt blends use only the very best pharmaceutical grade Epsom salt, as well as Dead Sea Salt imported from Israel. Rather than cutting costs with synthetic oils, our formulas use organic essential oils to give our customers the best bath salt product on the market today.

Thank you for visiting the Sleep Salts site, and thank you for your business.

Happy bathing.
