Arrow Product details

Epsom Salt also known as Magnesium Sulphate, is a well known salt used for muscle relaxation, sports injuries and recovery in the bath. Helps relax tired, stiff and aching muscles. Excellent when used after sports or exercising.

The benefits of Epsom salt are not just tales. Numerous studies have demonstrated the profound and wide-ranging benefits of magnesium and sulphate, the two major components of Epsom salt.

Epsom salt is made up of magnesium and sulphate, which can help improve health in many ways. Sulphate is essential for many biological processes. It helps to flush toxins and form proteins in joints, brain tissue and mucin proteins.

How to use

Take a cup full to upto 1Kg and soak in the bath for at least 20 minutes, great after high impact sports or repetitive sports where strains can occur.

Summer Ailments

For mosquito bites, bee stings and mild sunburn, make compresses by soaking a cotton washcloth in cold water that has been mixed with Epsom salt (2 tablespoons per cup), then apply to the skin.

Sore Muscles

Make compresses by soaking a cotton washcloth in cold water that has been mixed with Epsom salt (2 tablespoons per cup), then apply to the skin.

Create a paste to apply to the skin by adding a teaspoon of Epsom salt to about a cup of hot water until it dissolves, then chill the solution in the fridge for 20 minutes. Note: Clean the skin and pat dry before applying the paste.

Take an Epsom salt bath, by adding 2 cups of Epsom salt to the water in a standard-sized bathtub and soaking for at least 15-20 minutes. The salt dissolves quicker if you pour it under running water.

Soaking

Epsom salt is a popular remedy for easing muscle pain and fading bruises. Add 2 cups(approx 250-500g) of bath salt to warm water in a standard-sized bathtub (increase it if you have a larger bath). Bathe 2-3 times weekly, soaking for at least 15-20 minutes.

Foot Bath

Soothe your aching feet with a bath salt balm. Simply create an Epsom Salt bath by pouring 1 cup (100-250g) into a tub/bowl/foot spa of warm water.

Pedicure

Mix 1/2 cup of Epsom salt with warm, soapy water.

Soak feet to soften skin.

Remove polish, cut and file nails and calluses.

Soak feet in an Epsom salt bath for 5 minutes.

Spa Treatment

After showering, massage handfuls of Epsom salt over wet skin to exfoliate the body. It's the same treatment many upscale spas use, without the upscale price!

Exfoliation

For exfoliation, mix 2 cups (250-500g) of Epsom salt with 1/4 cup of petroleum jelly and a few drops of lavender essential oil. Use the mixture to
gently scrub away dry skin patches.

Facial

Mix 1/2 tsp of Epsom salt into cleansing cream for deep-pore cleansing. Massage on skin, rinse with cool water and pat dry.

Eased aches and pains I'd been recommended these salts by a friend who runs marathons. I used them following a weekend spent moving house and they definitely helped ease my stiff muscles. I now have a bag by the bath. Definitely recommend. October 11, 2016
Bad back Really eased up my bad back and tense muscles would highly recommend for a de stressing bath! January 17, 2017
Great for sore muscles relaxation This is a great product. I generally use it in my baths after exercising at the gym and it is effective in relieving tired and sore muscles. The only issue is you will need to put quite a lot of the salt in the bath to make it effective. January 20, 2017
