Bath Salts With Synthetic Cathinones May Contain Dangerous Chemicals
Bath salts are a class of herbal designer drugs known for their unusual and flavorful taste. The name derives from early cases where the drugs were disguised as bath salt. The crystals, powders, or flakes often look like Epsom salts, however they are different chemically.
“MDPV” is short for “mono-dynamic dimethyl ether.” Benzodiazepines and barbiturates are common cathinone analogs used as bath salts with people experiencing extreme nausea and vomiting frequently reporting that the effects are similar to those of heroin. M DPV is often used as a tranquilizer for young children and pregnant women suffering from severe nausea and vomiting, especially in the case of cancer treatment. It can cause a fast heart rate and hypertension, two very dangerous side effects not normally associated with the use of a bath salt.
People who regularly use bath salts to soothe a sore or tense area should not use essential oil when under medical care. Essential oils can have adverse effects and should never be used medicinally, unless prescribed by a qualified health care provider. The potential for adverse reaction to essential oil is greater when mixing the oil with other chemicals. Therefore, you should use a carrier oil while using bath salts to avoid problems with adverse reactions.
“I couldn’t get any more beautiful than a girl in a pink satin dress slipping down the aureole of my white gold taffeta dress with ivory wave and ivory moon-shaped buttons at the collar and cuffs. My only regret was not wearing my gold earrings as the evening wore on,” writes one man in an online article. In another instance he recalls, “I slipped into a black bodice with a ivory/white taffeta skirt and satin heels. I think ivory wave and moon-shaped buttons were the most eye-catching part of the dress.” While one woman states, “The ivory wedding shoes were just the right size and matched the ivory wedding dress perfectly,” another recalls her feeling,” Gorgeous and delicate, like a princess, I felt totally in the moment.”
One man says, “I made my own bridal jewelry by using two drops of my own extract from my own garden. A mixture of white and yellow amalaki (wild garlic) and lemon juice gave off a lovely scent. We used the scent as a deodorant before going to our rehearsal dinner and we couldn’t stop talking about it the whole evening. It was such a nice aroma that we all carried a small bottle of it home with us.”
Many individuals do not associate July as a relaxing month, but one writer recalls, “A few years ago, while vacationing at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I had a wonderful time surrounded by beautiful scenery. My sister, a professional dancer, told me that she used bath salts to help calm her nerves on the plane.” Another professional crafts person says, “I was taking some time off from work when I had an extremely powerful orgasm while shopping for flowers in Miami. I knew I was supposed to use a sex enhancement drug but didn’t know what to do. Luckily, I found a great website with some of the best resources for finding the right kind of stuff for me.” A man in his thirties recalled, “I used bath salts both before and after having sex. The combination definitely produced some excellent results.”
In fact, many who have reported positive results using bath salts feel that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) are possibly shortchanging consumers when it comes to regulating the manufacturing process. According to Michael Sacks, PhD, “It seems to me that they (the FDA) don’t understand the science behind compounds. They seem to look at the word’synthesis’ and think it means something different than what it really means.” Dr. Sacks continues, “My goal has always been to help people solve their problems without using drugs…and I believe that synthetic drugs are among the problems that doctors try to solve with drugs such as Viagra or Cialis.” Unfortunately, when you use bath salts, synthetic substances, to help you relax and focus on the pleasure of the moment, you run the very risk that these relaxants could actually have the opposite effect on you.
By looking at the ingredient label on many of the bath salts being sold today, you can easily see that they contain synthetic cathinones, a powerful stimulant. Because of this, the FDA has banned the sale of bath salts containing cathinones and the few that are still allowed, must display warning labels. While bath salts may produce the temporary, soothing and calming effects they are said to do, using them is not without dangers. Although the dangers of chemically enhanced products have been recognized for years, manufacturers continue to use the chemical because it is cheaper to produce. The best way to avoid bath salts and other chemically enhanced products is to simply buy the all natural varieties that use natural herbal ingredients, which offer the same benefits without the possible dangers.
