8 Amazing Health Benefits of Epsom Salts

Relieve Muscle Pain

After an intense workout, or a tiring day, Epsom salt is an amazing remedy to treat sore muscles as a result of their anti-inflammatory properties. When the salts are dissolved in water, they release the compound magnesium, which helps to promote relaxation of the muscles and the mind.


Skin Cleanser

Epsom salts act as an amazing skin cleanser because it clears out the pores of the skin and allows the water to wash out all the dirt and oil that have been trapped there. You can mix half a teaspoon of the salt into your normal shower gel or soap and use it to cleanse your face or your entire body.

Relive Foot Pain and Odor

Make a footbath with warm water and Epsom salts in a small bowl. Leaving feet to soak for 15-20 minutes can help to remove splinters, treat Athlete’s Foot , and get rid of toe fungus. It can also soothe irritated and sore feet, and combat’s bad foot odor.

Fight Colds and Flu

When you feel a cold or flu coming on, try adding a few Epsom salts to your bath and take a detoxifying soak. Epsom salts help to ease muscle aches and to encourage a better night’s sleep. Some doctors also think that Epsom salts help increase the body’s white blood cell count, which boosts the body’s ability to fight infection.

Body Scrub


After a warm shower, rub Epsom salts gently over the body to exfoliate the skin. Doing this once or twice a week will remove dead skin cells and leave the layer soft, clean and glowing.

Promotes Better Sleep

Start adding Epsom salts to your relaxing evening baths! Next time you need to relax, draw up a warm bath about an hour before you plan to go to bed and add the salt. The addition of salt to the water increases magnesium levels in the body, which helps to relax the muscles and stress levels.

Chapped Lip Treatment

When epsom salts are mixed in into a light moisturize, the mixture gently exfoliates and relieves skin of irritation.


Hair Volume

Epsom salts work wonders on hair that is oily and volume-less. Adding salt to your hair conditioner helps to get rid of excess oil, which relieves some of the weight on the hair and helps to give it more volume. Once a week, put this salt and conditioner mixture on your hair and leave in for 20 minutes. Rinse out with warm water.
