Epsom Salts Wonders


Epsom salts are named after the mineral springs of Epsom, England, a spa town from the late 1600’s. Today, Epsom salts are replicated from the restorative springs.

Epsom salts, common name for magnesium sulfate heptahydrate, MgSO4·7H2O, a water-soluble bitter-tasting compound that occurs as white or colourless needle-shaped crystals. As it was first prepared from the waters of mineral springs at Epsom, England; it also occurs as the mineral epsomite. Epsom salts is used medicinally as a purgative; it is also used in leather tanning, mordant dyeing, and as a filler in cotton goods and paper. Sauce

Epsom salts is a wonder compound that has sort of missed a generation and usually just used in small amounts of baking, bath salts and other household. Not to mention damn expensive in the small amounts you can buy it at super markets and gardening stores. Epsom has a huge amount of uses, and can be used to revive your body or your plants. After reading up and using epsom salts quite a lot at home, I have seen the benefits many times, especially when easing the pain of aching muscles in a hot bath after a long run, hard days work. I have used it plenty in gardening and see it work absolute miracles on plants that are not happy.
