One of my favorite things is Epsom Salt; it is one of the greatest natural remedies to use for health and beauty benefits, this salt is great for a number of things, I want to explore some of my favorite things that Epsom salt is used for.
What is Epsom salt?
Epsom salt is Magnesium sulfate; it is regulated by the USP and the FDA, when buying the salt look on the packaging drug facts to confirm that the salt you are buying is regulated by these two.
Uses for Epsom salt:
My favorite thing to do with Epsom salt is to let the salt dissolve in a warm bath and soak. The salt relieves muscle pain and is a natural stress reliever. I love to dissolve the salt in the bath water and add a few drops of my favorite essential oil fragrance. Mix 2 cups of Epsom salt into the bath water with a few drops of oil.
Another use for Epsom salt is a facial scrub:
Mix one teaspoon of Epsom salt into one cup of hot water.
Chill in the fridge for 20 minutes
Apply to skin and rinse.
The uses for Epsom Salt are expansive; from bath water to mixing it into a deep conditioner to volumize your hair. You can also use it as a body scrub to soften and brighten skin. I hope you end up enjoying this natural remedy as much as I do!
