Question about Epsom Salt

christinahDecember 14, 2006

I've heard many of the benefits of epsom salt, but I wanted to know if there are any downsides? I've heard of one person who broke out in a rash from it. Is that a normal occurrence?

I just want to get my facts straight before I start dumping epsom salt into my bath salts and scrubs, etc.

Epsom salts are used for all kinds of ailments and skin irratations. These salts are commonly used in these types of bath treats as well as a myriad of other salts.

I have used these salts myself in bath salts that I (er, um, my wife) have made and I have sold.

Did yu know that epsom salts are also good for roses?

Although this can be a good resource here, I would check with a health resource/knowledgeable person, or even a busier forum, no not just for bath salts, but most anything that someone will use on their skin.
