Natural Skin Care Recipes with Epsom Salt

Epsom salt has many uses. It is used as an all-over body exfoliant to remove dead skin cells, promotes circulation ,and is used for a number of ailments such as relieving itching, muscle strains and back pain. 
It can heal cuts, reduce soreness and relieves cough and congestion.

Epsom salts in the bath provide stress relief.  The magnesium in Epsom salts helps to produce adequate amounts of serotonin, the mood elevating chemical in our brain, that creates a feeling of calm relaxation.   Magnesium is the second most abundant element in human cells and the fourth most important positively charged ion in the body. Magnesium helps the body regulate enzymes and plays a part in organizing many bodily functions such as muscle control, electrical impulses, energy production and the elimination of harmful toxins.
