A few days ago I was shopping at a local supermarket and there was a sale for Epsom Salt. I thought this would be a good time to stock up. Why? Well, Epsom Salt has powerful benefits. The first time I juice fasted (10 yrs ago), epsom salt added to warm water was a beverage I drank once a day. It was a great way to start each morning during my juice fasting detox phase. Now, I often take epsom salt baths for a number of reasons: relaxation, illness, aches and pains, immune system boost, stress etc. Here’s a little more information about this amazing inexpensive healer.
