There is a reason why this old-fashioned remedy has been used for generations by most of our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents... BECAUSE it has many uses and it WORKS!!!

I was skeptical at first, but I bought a huge package of it for dirt-cheap at the local grocery store and used it on my feet as an exfoilator.

My feet are often sore, dry, and cracked from both the cold climate that I live in and from being on my feet constantly. I had severely cracked heels, but after rubbing my feet with the salts mixed with a little bit of lemon oil (any oil will do), they instantly felt smoother. So I started using the salts for my feet everyday, and by the 4th or 5th day, there was not a single crack or flake on my feet! No more expensive spa feet treatments!

I have been using Epson Salt for years. Had surgery on my feet 2 years ago and having been using the salt for my weekly pedicures. I mix the water and salt with Aveda Exfoliant is in the large green bottle and it works wonders on removing dead skin and soothing my feet.

Epsom Salts are inexpensive and a great way to sedate your body after a long day. I just throw a handful into a warm bath and soak. It draws toxins out of your body and relaxes muscles.
I like to use it as an exfoliator when mixed with almond oil or body wash.

My whole family uses this to bathe with and I often buy the scented kind at Walmart. Recently, my son had a really bad infection near his toenail bed. The toe was swollen, painful, oozing, and looked awful. Antibiotic cream and a Bandaid alone weren't making it go away and I was ready to take him to the doctor to have it looked at. In a last ditch effort to avoid an office visit I had him soak his foot in 2 cups of Epsom salts (the kind from the drugstore) in a gallon of hot water twice daily for about 45 minutes each time. I saw noticeable improvement in the infection within a day. During the day he kept it covered and used some antibiotic cream on it. After about two days it was doing much better and within a week was completely healed. Perhaps it would have gone away by itself but I believe the salt soak made a difference. There is a reason it has been around forever and I keep a box around all the time now.

* hem * It may sound a bit gross, but a nurse told me to use this when I had a yeast infection or a UTI. Soaking in it really took the itchiness/pain away. It works wonders in providing fast relief! It acts faster than the cream/pill even.

I am obsessed with Epsom salts! It makes for the best bath ever..I add 2 cups into a hot bath and about 2 tablespoons body oil (i like Burt's Bees) and my skin feels awesome afterwards. Not only does it do wonders for skin but my body feels wonderful! It's like taking a sleeping pill! I do this once a week and it's great end of the week treat!! The price can't be beat either..try this!

THE BEST BATH for soothing sore joints and muscles?

2 cups epsom salts
1 or 2 cups of Apple Cider Vinegar

pour into a warm/hot bath.

you can also rub oil or lotion into skin before hand.

the apple cider vinegar is great for itchy skin - it's good for fighting bacterial and fungal infections of the skin.

Great to add to a hot bath. I make sure to slather myself in oil before I get in to prevent my skin from getting dried out. Soothing and relaxing and makes skin really bright, rosy and glowing after getting out. I get the giant cartons at the drugstore for a few bucks and sometimes add a few drops of essential oils (lavender, usually) for a more spa-like experience (though be careful with EOs as some can be irritating). Add some music, magazines and a scented candle and I'm all kinds of relaxed when I'm finished.

Im never without a few tea spoons of this when I have a bath. So good, relieves body. Old fashioned wholesome remedy. good for anyone who requires additional help in the bath, great cheap alternative.
