Garden Applications:

  • Fertilize your houseplants - Most plants need nutrients like magnesium and sulfur to stay in good health and Epsom salt makes the primary nutrients in most plant foods (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) more effective. Sprinkle Epsom salt once weekly to help nourish your houseplants, flowers and vegetables.
  • Keep your lawn green - Magnesium sulfate crystals, when added to the soil, provide vital nutrients that help prevent yellowing leaves and the loss of green color (magnesium is an essential element in the chlorophyll molecule) in plants. Add 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt to a ~4 liters of water and sprinkle on your lawn to keep the grass healthy and green.
  • Insecticide spray - Use Epsom salts on your lawn and in your garden to safely and naturally get rid of plant pests.

Did you know? Epsom salts get their name from a natural spring in Surrey, Great Britain. The spring water there is high in magnesium sulphate, and has since lent its name to household item.

Lovely for a bath

Used it in a bath, and it seems nice, very relaxing with some essential oils. Also used it on my plants and did not really see a visible difference, as I did with the previous brand, but there are so many factors that speak to plant health, so I cannot really point it to the salts.
