What Are Bath Salt And How To Make It?
Bath salts are an assortment of designer drugs. The word derives from cases where the drugs were cleverly disguised as bath salts. The bath salt, crushed crystals, or powders often look very similar to Epsom salts, yet are different chemically.
They are used as mood enhancers and relievers, sometimes with negative side effects. The substances that bath salt contains can be used for the treatment of depression, anxiety, panic attacks, cocaine addiction, alcoholism, and other substance abuse problems. Many addicts report being addicted to bath salt, due to the ease of acquiring it and its effectiveness as a stimulant. Because of its reputation as a highly addictive substance, it is not surprising that bath salt has been in short supply and has had legal issues since it was first introduced.
This substance is usually purchased in very small doses. Most addicts will not want to share their bath salt with anyone else, for fear that they will lose their ability to experience a normal life. They will either soak in large quantities of the substance, or in the drinking water that is intended to dissolve faster than bath salt. When enough liquid is soaked in the container to dissolve the salt, the individual drains the liquid into a separate container and then continues to repeat the process. Many times the individual will drain the liquid into a pail and continue to repeat the soaking and draining process.
There is some controversy surrounding the actual source of the bath salts. Some sources say that bath salts were originally derived from the cathinone plant, which grows naturally in the regions of Pakistan and India. Others say that the substance came from a village called Tattoo ham in Jamaica. A mixture of iodine and hydrogen peroxide was mixed and this substance became known as “mithia” by the native people, who began to use it for a variety of ailments.
It is important to note that bath salt and its derivatives are actually considered to be relatively benign in most instances. These chemicals are used in a wide range of medical applications. For instance, the cathinone compounds can be prescribed to help with depression in patients who are undergoing therapy. In addition, bath salts containing these compounds are often administered by those with certain types of liver disease.
Unfortunately, bath salts do have some serious side effects. The two primary negative side effects are the addiction potential and the toxic poisoning that occur when bath water is used for other purposes. Currently, there is no legal restriction on the sale, distribution, and consumption of bath salts containing synthetic cathinones. However, the United States poison control centers are advising against the purchase and use of bath salt products that contain synthetic cathinones. Additionally, bath salt has been linked to a number of medical problems, such as, high blood pressure, seizure disorders, muscle weakness, and even liver damage.
Another common use of bath salt is for the treatment of itchy skin. Most often, topical treatments for itchy skin require the use of strong antiseptics, which may result in some unpleasant side effects. However, bath salt has recently been discovered to have antiseptic properties, as well as natural astringent properties. This combination of properties provides a novel and relatively painless alternative to topical creams and other prescription medications used to treat skin conditions. Furthermore, bath salt is considered to have fewer negative side effects than many of the prescription drugs used to treat itchy skin.
When looking to make bath salt, you should look to buy products that are manufactured from all natural ingredients. Although natural products cost more, they are often worth the money. Typically, bath salt recipes will call for natural sea salt, and the majority of these recipes can be made with just table salt. The exception may be those recipes that call for Celtic or Himalayan sea salt, which is much more expensive. Regardless, of what you choose to make bath salt with, make sure you use it in moderation and remember to take precautions when handling it, such as wearing gloves.
