Epsom Salt Review and Giveaway!


Hi Neighbors,

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.

I didn't realize it had a lot of garden benefits. Among them it helps seeds germinate, plants grow bushier and produces more flowers.

Researchers have found that magnesium also increases energy and stamina by encouraging the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy packets made in the cells.
