Dirt cheap, effective, great results. What else could I ask for? I add this to my baths when I have a cold, any aches or pains, or just to relax! It helps relax my tense muscles, calm me down, and get a boost of magnesium (which many of us are lacking!).

Yes, yes, and yes.
I toss a couple cups into a hot bath to help with muscle aches and pains, cramps, and sore tired muscles from working out. It's great for when you're sick or just stressed out and need to unwind. It doesn't smell like anything or leave any kind of residue on the skin. It doesn't irritate or alter my skin at all and I have really sensitive skin.
Epsom salt is also great at killing bacteria and infections. If you've got a red, hot inflamed hangnail or cut yourself with a dirty knife, soak your wound in hot water with a sprinkle of Epsom salt to kill off nasty germs and speed up healing time.
Plus it's cheap! I love it!

I can't live without Epsom Salts. After a long weight lifting workout, I just pour myself a bath and pour the Epsom Salt in the warm water and I just soak in it for 20 minutes. All my aches, pains, muscle, joint point is gone afterwards. It's as if the salt just vacuums all the pains and aches from my body. I feel terrific afterwards, the feeling is like I just rested for 3 days in bed on a pile of soft feathers and clouds. That's how amazing I feel afterwards. I agree with the poster that EVERY bathroom should have this!

Best thing since sliced bread. So many benefits. And so cheap. Also...Ive been using the Equate (walmart) brand of lavender Epsom salts and it smells soooo good and literally, no joke, after bathing with this my whole bathroom smells like this deliciousness for like THREE days afterwards. Ill be outside the bathroom days later and wonder "wtf smells so good?". And then realize its my grubby bathtub which is in need of scrubbing

Amazing for the body, mind, and soul. Epsom salt soothes and calms. Just pour a cup or two in a warm bath and relax! From your skin to aches and pains to just needing a break from thinking, this really helps so much. It's like soaking away the day in the ocean. My skin always looks and feels so healthy afterwards, and I feel so relaxed inside. I would call this one of the best beauty secrets. It just helps you maintain an overall happy feeling- inside and out.

WARNING: My review discusses the vaginal area & women's health issues.
If you're easily insulted or offended, do not read my review of this product.
I do not sugarcoat details & sensitive people may be uncomfortable with it.

Managing my personal & feminine hygiene is important. Epsom salt baths are a powerful & effective home remedy for vaginal discomforts—discharge, odor, irritation, redness, swelling, itching, burning, sores, etc. I use the baths as a natural remedy for yeast infections. It helps with symptoms (itching & discharge) & while it kills the yeast infection.

To treat & cure them, I take a bath in nothing but the Epsom salt. I use two big handfuls, mix it in the warm water with my hand, & let it completely dissolve. I sit & soak for twenty minutes twice a day, for three or four days. In half a week, the infections & symptoms are mostly, if not totally, gone. To keep natural/normal discharge & odor as a minimum is basically the same thing, but I don't get in a bath. I simply soak "down there" in warm water with a spoonful or two of salts since it cleanses naturally. I'd definitely recommend it for whatever issue you have whether or not it be the same as mine!

BIG UPDATE & EXPLANATION: A rude user (scooterj) has taken it upon herself to claim that my review is "entirely false & bad advice." Her review (she didn't review the product; she posted only to attack both me & my review) is incredibly arrogant & ignorant, & I apologize if she frightened or embarrassed anybody who thinks that something is wrong with her because she uses this treatment regularly often. I am not going to let a perfect stranger allow me to be ashamed or unaware of my own body. You can safely use Epsom salt baths to treat yeast infections both completely or until you get to a doctor, or to naturally maintain personal hygiene.

She's SHAMING OTHER WOMEN by saying "If you 'need' this repeatedly, it's because you cannot cure the causes this way." Based on her own logic, if you take cough medicine more than once in a year, you never cured the cold you had last winter. Apparently women who get more than one yeast infection in their entire lives are morons & all harming themselves. Some, like me, get them a lot more frequently. "Recurring yeast infections" is a very real thing & if you have 4 or more a year, it's all right! I've shared with my doctor what I do to treat my yeast infections & have gone to him while self-treating recently. The exact words out of his mouth, "Discharge is minimal." Pregnancy, birth control pills, antibiotics, & a weak immune system can all cause a yeast infection! Not all women are the same!

As I wrote in my original review, you do not have to use this in a bath for treating a yeast infection. For example, I don't like the smell of blood & body fluids after a period, so I'll take an epsom salt bath to freshen up after it ends. I suppose being fresh & cleansing my body is "harmful." I never once stated that epsom salt cure everything I listed. I agree, if you have all the symptoms I listed happening at the same time, that is not a yeast infection & you do need to see a doctor. I also, which user scooterj conveniently failed to mention, never claimed those listed were symptoms of a yeast infection. My review is specifically for the treatment & cure of yeast infections - not to treat or cure transmitted infections/diseases.

Despite what she thinks, not every single yeast infection needs to be treated by a doctor. Unless it's your very first & you don't know what it is, this treatment is not harmful. Just because I self-treat doesn't mean I do not get pelvic exams or checked up regularly. I personally prefer a natural approach as opposed to putting things into my body if I don't absolutely have to. I'm just not somebody who's so ashamed of & unfamiliar with my own body that I rush to the gynecologist or to the pharmacy for an over-the-counter medicine when I can cure myself naturally, at home, & for free. I know my own body & I know what a yeast infection is. Self-care is not at all harmful whether you use it temporarily until you can see a doctor or depend on it completely.

I love everything about this Epsom Salt Bath. It helps relieve muscle/joint pain, releases toxins, heals cuts and bruises and is great for soaking your feet after a long day.
My mother has arthritis and as soon as she tried the Epsom Salt Bath she felt instant relief and her muscles were relaxed. I told her to move her joints and sretch after the bath as her muscles were relaxed. She will continue to do this bath about 2 - 3 times a week. I add 1 - 2 cups of Epsom Salt into a hot tub of water and add about a tea spoon of baby oil and the results are amazing.

No need to shell out for fancy bath salts -- a bag of this is really all you need (and it's probably about 90% of what's in those fancy bath salts anyway!) But if you still want that feeling of luxury that a big ole bag of generic magnesium sulfate somehow just doesn't foster, you can pretty the epsom salts up quite a bit yourself. Scent it with essential oils, mix it with some nice body oil to make a scrub, toss in a small amount of one of the prettier exotic sea salts, put in an attractive container for display... You'll still come out on top financially, and you'll still get to enjoy all the benefits of the epsom salts themselves, which are fantastic for your skin and great for sore muscles. Every bathroom should have a bag of this stuff stored away somewhere. It's a staple.

I use Dr. Teal's Epsom Salt Soaking Solution Chamomile for myself. LOVE LOVE LOVE. The smell is so relaxing and floral. It's strong but so natural, and does not bother me at all. I'd actually like it if it was even more potent! The bag is a little expensive ($5.00 for a 3lb bag, whereas I've seen some epsom salt bags for $.88, though I'm guessing it's because of the chamomile) but it's definitely worth repurchasing. It relaxes my muscles and my body. And the chamomile oils make my skin really soft. I just ran out, and I'm definitely going to buy more!

I definitely recommend if you don't have any allergies to these oils!
