The Epsom salt’s name comes from a bitter and salty spring in Surrey in England. It is made of magnesium sulfate forms (magnesium, oxygen and sulfur together) with attached 7 molecules of water.
This salt has been used in anti-inflammatory remedies and as a natural exfoliant. Usually these remedies are used for dry skin, certain illnesses, small wounds and sore muscles. Magnesium crystals from the salt are easily absorbed into the skin, but if you are pregnant or have a medical condition, consult a health professional before use.
