Did you know that the epsom salt you keep laying around in your cabinet can actually be very beneficial for you? It does not cost much, yet has an amazing amount of uses that are taken for granted. In this blog post you will find five different ways that epsom salt can help you in your everyday life.
1) Soothe sore muscles
epsom salt can soothe sore muscles, cramps, joint pain, and bruises. After you work out, take a bath with two cups of epsom salt in it. It will help you relax and relieve stress and sore muscles
2) Cleanse your face
Exfoliating your skin is very important, and the grainy salt is a great way to do so. Simply put a teaspoon of salt in your hand and mix it with warm water. Scrub your face and rinse. This helps exfoliate, rejuvenate, and gets rid of those unwanted blackheads.
3) Kill Foot Fungus and Remove Odor
All you have to do is soak your feet in a bucket filled with warm water and epsom salt for 10 – 15 minutes. It will draw out toxins and get rid of odor and foot fungus.
4) Treat sunburns
Soothe your irritated sunburned skin by soaking in a warm bath with one cup of epsom salt.
5) Hair conditioner
Epsom salt actually works as a great deep conditioner, and adds volume while getting rid of grease. Add the salt to your conditioner, and apply to hair. Leave in for 20 minutes, then rinse.
