Epsom salt, otherwise known as magnesium sulphate (MgS04-7H2O), owes its name to a town in England – Epsom – where it was first extracted from mineral water. Epsom salt is a close relative of magnesium chloride, in its benefits, uses and applications. It is best known to us as a bath salt, for its relaxing action on the mind and body.
When dissolved in water, it is alkaline, softening the water and making a great natural cleansing agent. Its high level of magnesium makes it valuable for people suffering with muscle cramps, joint stiffness, stress, anxiety and other symptoms of magnesium deficiency. A great advantage of this salt is its low price which combined with its multiple benefits ensures the product’s unrivaled popularity among relaxing bath salts.
Epsom salt is used not only externally, but internally as well, in a number of detoxification programs, including liver detox. The salt loosens the stool thanks to its high level of magnesium, and binds toxins, especially phenols, thanks to its high content of sulphur.
Other applications include using it in shampoos, conditioners, body scrubs, compresses, soaps, creams. Adding the salt to a bath produces a wonderful de-stressing and sleep promoting effect, so is great for those who suffer from insomnia and anxiety. It will also help to remove toxins and increase circulation. Positive results have been observed when Epsom salt was used with patients suffering from ADHD and toxicity-induced health problems.
