Amazing Uses for Epsom Salt

What do pedicures, hair volumizers, tile cleaners and bath crystals have in common? They can all be created – at a low cost and in an eco-friendly manner – using Epsom salt. Comprised of the minerals magnesium and sulfate, Epsom salt is a natural exfoliant and anti-inflammation remedy that can be used to treat dry skin, sore muscles, small wounds and even to fight illness. It can also be added to any bath or foot soak to create a luxurious at-home spa experience. These budget-friendly, hassle-free tips from the Epsom Salt Council show how Epsom salt can keep you feeling healthy and beautiful in the comfort of your own home.
