Try These 15 Simple Epsom Salt Beauty & Health Hacks Today

Beauty

Epsom salts are composed of forms of magnesium sulfate (magnesium, sulfur, and oxygen together) with up to seven water molecules attached. Epsom salt derives its name from a bitter, salty spring in Surrey, England where the salt was dried from spring water that arises from a geology of porous chalk and clay.

Epsom salts have been used as natural exfoliants and in anti-inflammatory remedies used to treat sore muscles, small wounds, dry skin, and even illness. The Epsom Salt Council has a list of Epsom salt uses and a large number of these include beauty and health tips.

Epsom salts are generally safe to use and the magnesium contained in the crystals can be absorbed into the body through the skin. Of course, be sure to consult with a health professional if you have any medical conditions or are pregnant.
