Using Epsom Salt for Your Health and Your Beauty
Epsom Salt comes from a saline spring in Surrey, England, and is a compound of the minerals magnesium and sulfate. A natural remedy for many ailments, Epsom Salt boasts a number of health and beauty benefits.
Magnesium and sulfate are easily absorbed into the skin, which makes Epsom Salt an ideal, versatile product. For example, magnesium reduces inflammation, improves muscle and nerve function, and promotes relaxation. Sulfate, in turn, enhances the absorption of nutrients, flushes toxins, and eases migraines.
