epsom salt

Epsom salts are made of forms of magnesium sulfate (magnesium, sulfur, and oxygen together) with up to seven water molecules attached. Epsom salt derives its name from a bitter, salty spring in Surrey, England where the salt was dried from spring water that arises from a geology of porous chalk and clay.

Epsom salts have been used as natural exfoliants and in anti-inflammatory remedies used to treat small wounds, sore muscles, dry skin, and even illness.

Epsom salts are usually safe to use and the magnesium included in the crystals can be absorbed into the body through the skin. Of course, be sure to consult with a health professional if you have any medical conditions or are pregnant.
