Whether you like a relaxing soak or wish to enhance your beauty effortlessly, making Epsom salt a part of your daily routine can add a whole lot of goodness to your way of life. Epsom salt baths are an easy and ideal way to enjoy the amazing health benefits of Magnesium as it plays a number of roles in the body including regulating the activity of over 325 enzymes. Knowing that, it makes sense that using Pakmed Epsom Salts offers so many uses and health benefits - including relaxing the nervous system, curing skin problems, soothing body pain, and drawing out toxins.

Epsom Salts are magnesium sulfate, and magnesium is a very popular and revered natural remedy and health supplement – for good reason!

Sulfates help improve the absorption of nutrients, flush toxins and help ease migraine headaches.

Epsom salt has numerous health benefits as well as many beauty, household and gardening-related uses. Health benefits include reducing inflammation, helping muscle and nerve function and helping to prevent artery hardening.

When magnesium sulfate is absorbed through the skin, such as in a bath, it draws toxins from the body, sedates the nervous system, reduces swelling, relaxes muscles, is a natural emollient, exfoliator, and much more.

Health Uses

Athlete’s Foot - Soak feet in an Epsom salt bath to help relieve the symptoms of Athlete’s Foot

Remove splinters - Soak affected skin area in an Epsom salt bath to draw out the splinter.

Treat toenail fungus - Soak your affected toes in hot water mixed with a handful of Epsom salt three times a day.

Soothe sprains and bruises - Add 2 cups Epsom salt to a warm bath and soak to reduce the pain and swelling of sprains and bruises.

Ease discomfort of Gout - Ease the discomfort of gout and reduce inflammation by adding 2-3 teaspoons of Epsom salts into a basin and immersing the affected foot/joint. The water should be as hot as it is comfortable. Soak for about 30 minutes.

Beauty Uses

Exfoliate dead skin - In the shower or bath, mix a handful of Epsom salt with a tablespoon of bath or olive oil and rub all over your wet skin to exfoliate and soften. Rinse thoroughly.

Exfoliating face cleanser - To clean your face and exfoliate skin at the same time, mix a half-teaspoon of Epsom salt with your regular cleansing cream. Gently massage into skin and rinse with cold water.

Dislodge blackheads - Add a teaspoon of Epsom salt and 3 drops iodine into a half cup of boiling water. Apply this mixture to the blackheads with a cotton ball.

Remove foot odour - Mix a half cup of Epsom salt in warm water and soak your feet for 10 minutes to remove bad odour, sooth achy feet, and soften rough skin.

Remove hairspray - Combine 1 gallon of water, 1 cup of lemon juice, and 1 cup Epsom salt. Cover the mixture and let set for 24 hours. The next day, pour the mixture into your dry hair and leave on for 20 minutes before shampooing as normal.

Hair volumizer - Combine equal parts deep conditioner and Epsom salt and warm in a pan. Work the warm mixture through your hair and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

Household Uses

Clean bathroom tiles - Mix equal parts Epsom salt and liquid dish detergent and use as a scrub on bathroom tile.

Prevent slugs - Sprinkle Epsom salt on or near interior entry points to prevent slugs.

Clean detergent build-up on washing machines - Fill the machine tub with hot water, add Epsom salt, and run an agitate/soak/agitate cycle to dissolve detergent build-up (please consult your machine's instruction manual for specific instructions).

Garden Uses

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 gallon of water and sprinkle on your lawn to keep the grass healthy and green.

Insecticide spray - Use Epson salts on your lawn and in your garden to safely and naturally get rid of plant pests.

The plastic bag containing the salts was unfortunately torn and the salts ended up in the main carton containing my other goods. I I won't be ordering this product online again.

Whilst I love a scented epsom bath salt, sometimes the good old traditional epsom salts are simply the best. After a long, hard, physically draining day with achey muscles and swollen legs, these epsom salts provide immediate relief. Only criticism would be they work so well at providing relief i could fall asleep in the bath!

I used this outside of the house. We had some problems with our grass, due too termites. We used normal table salt to get rid of the termites, but that made the grass go yellow and die. So I used the epsom salts to get the life and colour back. Works wonders on all of my plants.

I pour the salts into a large glass bottle and then add Lavender ess oil, Helichysum ess oil and Pine ess oil. Put lid on the bottle and give it a mighty good shake.....I use about two tablespoons per foot soak. Wonderfully relaxing for both mind and body.
