Have you heard of the amazing benefits of Epsom salt? It has been used for hundreds of years, since its discovery in 1680, near Epsom in England.
Epsom salt is a naturally occurring mineral, high in magnesium and sulfates. These two are easily absorbed into the skin, and improve numerous vital functions.
In most cases, Epsom salt is used to treat joint pain relief, but there are numerous other ways you can use it as well:
- Ease Joint Pain
An Epsom salt bath is the most beneficial treatment of joint pain. The salt will easily break into the water and the sulfates and magnesium get easily absorbed into the body.
- Foot Scrub
Mix olive oil, Epsom salt, and Castile soap and use this foot scrub twice a week to make your feet soft and smooth.
- Face Scrub
You should add some Epsom salt to your face cream. Then, apply the cream on the face and gently massage it.
