What is Epsom Salt and how does it Detox

Epsom salt is the common name for magnesium sulfate.  It is a natural, chemical compound made up of magnesium, sulfur, and oxygen. Many people are currently deficient in magnesium, making this extremely beneficial to most people.  There is some debate if magnesium is absorbed through your skin or not.  But it will be hard to find someone to say a bath is bad for your health.  So I think this is a no brainer, it can’t hurt anything- take the bath and relax.

There are a ton of natural and organic options available on Amazon and at most major grocery stores. Making this one of the easier products to purchase. There are other articles stating Epsom salt has a ton of uses and benefits.  I personally have never used Epsom salt in my hair or to clean with, never thought about it actually.   I may have to try some of the other uses in the near future and I’ll update this then. For now, enjoy the Baths!
