Epsom Salt Spa and Beauty Treatment Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)

I've heard of Epsom Salt, but never knew there were so many uses. I was glad that I had the opportunity to try it out. I decided to try it for my facial and DIY in-home spa treatment. As a busy mom, I deserve some pampering once in a while.

Unlike regular salt, Epsom Salt is magnesium sulfate and has many uses in agriculture, health, and beauty. Sulfate helps form joint proteins and helps keep joints healthy, flushes toxins, and improves absorption of nutrients. Magnesium regulates more than 325 enzymes in the body, performing more functions than almost any other mineral. It helps reduce inflammation to relieve pain and muscle cramps.

Epsom Salt is inexpensive and offers the similar spa treatments in the comfort of your own home. I am using it for bath and face. Here are the list of benefits I've experienced:

- doesn't dry out skin
- does not smell
- really exfoliates well
- gives skin a soft feeling
- provides a relaxing bath experience






The following lists the usage with Epsom Salt along with some health & beauty tips:

1) Glowing skin exfoliating treatment: Mix 2 cups of Epsom Salt with 1/4 cup of petroleum jelly and a few drops of lavender essential oil. Use the mixture to gently scrub away dry skin patches.

2) Micro-dermabrasion Facial: Mix 1/2 tsp of Epsom Salt into cleansing cream for a deep-port cleansing. Massage gently on skin. Rinse with cool water and pat dry.

3) Bathtime Bliss: Add 2 cups of Epsom Salt to the water in a standard-sized bathtub and soak for at least 12 minutes, three times weekly.

4) Pedicure: Dissolve a half cup of Epsom Salt into two quarts of warm water. Pour the water into a container and soak your bare feet for 15-20 minutes. Massage the entire foot with Epsom Salt concentrating on the heels and angles to remove any dry, rough spots. Then, rinse your feet off with clean tap water and dry thoroughly.

5) Homemade Bath Crystals: Mix 2 cups of Epsom Salt with a few drops of fragrance to create a custom bath crystal. Add a few drops of food coloring or 1/2 tsp of glycerin if you like. Store in an air-tight container.

6) Natural Hair Volumizer: Combine equal parts warm conditioner and Epsom salt, work the mixture through your hair and leave for 20 minutes.

7) Spa treatment: After showering, massage handfuls of Epsom Salt over wet skin to exfoliate the body. It's the same treatment many upscale spas use, without the upscale price!

Epsom salt can be used to help reduce itching from mosquito bites, bee stings, mild sunburn, poison ivy, etc. It will reduce the swelling and eases the itching sensation.
