Product Talk: Epsom Salt


Epsom SaltI could extol the virtues of Epsom salt for hours.

Hours, I tell you.

I mix them into my bath water with a few drops of essential oil for the best, most relaxing bath there is.

They’re great for inflammation and swelling: I put a heaping tablespoon into the bucket of ice water my track athlete uses to soak his foot after a hard practice or competitive meet.

They’re wonderful for extracting toxins. Did you know that if you soak an area with a splinter in water with Epsom salt, the splinter will come to the surface of your skin, making it super easy to extract?

Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate and has about a trillion uses. Since it’s spring, I wanted to talk about one of them: homemade miracle plant growth stimulator.

Yep, you don’t need to put chemicals on your spring plantings to make them grow into bountiful and beautiful plants. Simply use 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1 tablespoon Espom salt, and dissolve into a gallon of water. I’ve used this on my new rose bushes, my new hosta, my tomatoes and my new annuals.

It has produced lush, huge plants in a short amount of time.

Add one more wonderful addition to the list of uses of Epsom salt.
