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.

What is Epsom Salt? 

Epsom salt is a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate.  Long known as a natural remedy for a number of ailments, Epsom salt has numerous health benefits as well as many beauty, household and gardening-related uses.

 Best way to use Epsom Salt? (in my opinion)
A nice warm bath ~studies have shown that magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin, making Epsom salt baths an easy and ideal way to enjoy the amazing health benefits.
How much?
Take relaxing, stress-relieving Epsom salt baths three times weekly by adding 2 cups Epsom Salt to a warm bath and soaking for at least 12 minutes.  Do not use soap as it will interfere with the action of the salts. Try to rest for about two hours afterwards. If you have arthritic joints move them as much as possible after an Epsom salt bath to prevent congestion in the joints.
I love this BRAND.
