8 Great Ways to Use Epsom Salts





The wonders of Epsom salt have been well known for hundreds of years and unlike other salts, Epsom salt has beneficial properties that can soothe the body, mind and soul. Some of the countless health benefits include relaxing the nervous system, curing skin problems, soothing back pain and aching limbs, easing muscle strain, healing cuts, treating cold and congestion, and drawing toxins from the body.






  1. Smooth skin: Mix 1/2 cup epsom salt with 1/4 cup olive oil and scrub skin in the shower for healthy and smooth skin.
  2. Help Kids Sleep Better: Add a cup to kids’ bath water before bed to help them sleep peacefully.
  3. Itchy Skin or Insect Bites: Dissolve a tablespoon of epsom salt in to 1/2 cup of water and cool in the refrigerator. Spritz on itchy skin or apply a wet compress to help relieve itching.
  4. Minor Sunburn Relief: Use the same ratio in the itchy skin relief above and spritz on to minor sunburns to help soothe them.
  5. Soil Prep- Before planting, we add a few bags of epsom salt to the soil in the garden and water in to help replenish soil magnesium levels.
  6. Laxative- For occasional constipation, a teaspoon of epsom salt dissolved in water can help. CHECK WITH A DOCTOR FIRST.
  7. Foot Soak: To soften hard or cracked feet, add 1 cup of epsom salt to a hot foot soak and soak for 20 minutes.
  8. Facial Wash: Add a pinch of epsom salt to your usual face cleanser for a skin exfoliating magnesium boost.

      1. Hi!
        I'm afraid there is no quick way. You have to do exercise and try having oats and skimmed milk for breakfast and have dinner by 7pm.

        For stretch marks, try bio-oil, it works.

      1. Hi!
        That's a little hard to answer. Is your skin oily, dry, normal or sensitive? Are you dark or fair in complexion?

      3. Okay.
        Try Clean and Clear foaming cleanser or Neutrogena facial soap.
