Epsom Salt Review and Giveaway!
Ok. You may say Epsom Salt in a Gift Basket Bonanza? Oh Yes! You would not believe all the uses for Epsom Salt. Oh, I knew you poured some into a bath for a nice soak, but that is not all you can use Epsom Salt for. According to the website:May soften skin and exfoliate. Provides Magnesium which has been shown to-ease stress, lower blood pressure, create a happy relaxed feeling, raise energy levels. If you visit their website, they have a list of uses and recipes to follow. Like a Pedicure, to exfoliate, a soak, a facial, spa treatment, natural hair volumizer, and even how to create your own bath crystals.
I am including the bath crystal information here:Mix two cups of Epsom Salt with a few drops of fragrance to create a custom bath crystal. Add a few drops of food coloring or ½ TSP of glycerin if you like. Store in an air-tight container.
Under health usage tips they tell you how to make compresses, and a foot bath. They even include information on how to use it in gardening. It amazed me the uses for Epsom Salt. I mean it has been around for years and all I had ever used it for was soaking in the tub. You really need to visit the website and wander around. I never knew you could use Epsom Salt for itching from mosquito bites, poison ivy, bee stings and sunburn. You can rest assured, I will be keeping Epsom Salt in the house from now on.
As far as a gift basket goes, put the nice looking jar of Epsom Salt in a gift basket along with some essential oils, perhaps a scrubbie, or a neck pillow for the tub. You could also include a list of the different uses and recipes from the website!
The winner of this giveaway will receive one bottle of Epsom Salt, just like mine.
