Epsom Salt -- Magnesium Sulfate -- is a pure mineral that benefits your skin and body in a number of ways.

Bath time - Add two cups of epsom salts to your bath, soak for 15 minutes. This should reduce the swelling and inflammation of body aches and pains. For the ultimate relaxation, drink a hot cup of green tea with honey whist in your epson salts bath.

Body Scrub - Heaven in a couple of steps.

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE epsom salts! I've been using them for years. Great for body aches, sore feet and relaxation. I've seen the scented ones but haven't tried them yet. I'll have to try the scrub - I love that you can make a batch & keep it!
