5 Epsom Salt Uses- Why You Need It In Your Home For Beauty


Magnesium Sulfate, aka Epsom Salt, is one of the world's hidden wonders! It gets its name from the place it was discovered, Epsom England, a small borough in Surrey, where the salt was produced from the springs that bubble up and meet non-porous London clay. “Epsom salt is made up of magnesium and sulfate, which can help improve health in numerous ways. A lack of magnesium which helps regulate the activity of more than 300 enzymes in the body can contribute to high blood pressure, hyperactivity, heart problems and other health issues, doctors warn. Sulfate is essential for many biological processes, helping to flush toxins and helping form proteins in joints, brain tissue, and mucin proteins.” Epsom Salt CouncilThink it's just for bath salts and in-grown toenails think again! This little sprinkle of the natural goodness is as versatile as MacGyver.

Epsom Salt can be found at your local grocery store, pharmacy, and even your garden supply store. It has a wide array of uses, and although each may be manufactured differently they are all the same chemically. Usually, a two and a half-pound container will run you $3 more or less.


1. Face cleaner – To clean your face at night, mix a half teaspoon of Epsom salt with your regular cleansing cream. Just massage into skin and rinse with cold water

2. Homemade skin mask – Puree 1 Egg white, 1/2 Teaspoon Pantothenic acid powder (Vitamin B5), 1 Teaspoon Aloe Vera Gel, 1 Teaspoon Epsom salt, 1 Ripe Tomato, chopped, and 2 drops Thyme oil. Apply to face for 15 minutes then rinse off. This is especially good for acne problems.

3. Foot Soak – Sooth aches, remove odors and soften rough skin with a foot soak. Add 1/2 cup of Epsom salt to a large pan of warm water. Soak feet for as long as the water is warm. Rinse and dry. It also helps with the toenail fungus, like an athlete’s foot. I like to add marbles to the bottom of my pan for an added foot massage.

4. Skin exfoliate – Massage handfuls of Epsom salt over your wet skin, starting with your feet and continuing up towards the face. Have a bath to rinse.

5. Remove excess oil from hair – Epsom salt soaks up excess oil from your hair. Add 9 tablespoons of Epsom salt to 1/2 cup of oily hair shampoo. Apply one tablespoon of the liquid to your hair when dry; rinse with cold water. Pour lemon juice or organic apple cider vinegar through the hair, leave on for 5-10 minutes, then rinse.
