This is my bath-time go-to for relaxing achy muscles. It's a great price and delivered to my door so I don't have to carry 20 lbs of salts up the stairs, some poor Amazon delivery person does. Definitely will keep buying and highly recommend.
Still not cheap, but I don't see why Epsom Salt is so expensive these days. I prefer getting 3 of these 8 lb. bags because I don't have to lift anything heavy and keep one by the tub at a time. It saves space. Most of the other bags are 20-25 lbs or so. This is still cheaper that other salts out there, and it does the job. Being that you need 3 cups per bath, this stuff goes quickly. I use it regularly to detox. I will continue to repurchase the Amazon brand.
I'm a big fan of other name brand epsom soaking salts. But those can get pricey. This stuff has been great. I almost prefer the plain better because I can add my own essential oils to the bath water, so I can have some variety. I like a different name brand because of the texture of the salts. These salts seemed to be a little more coarse. But they do the trick.
For a buck a pound, this is a decent deal. (You can usually grab a 16 oz. bag of an off brand at a dollar tree.) If you’re using this as a soak, the 8 lb bag is the way to go. I initially bought this as per my doctors orders to soak an ingrown toenail. (I feel like I’m channeling my grandparents leaving this review lol) It really provided relief to my poor toenail but I’ve went on to use it for a myriad of other things and just ordered my 2nd bag. It’s safe for sensitive skin and is unscented. Yes, the seal needs work. It was hard to open and even harder to reseal. Ultimately, I couldn’t reseal the bag and dumped it into mason jars. I’m not mad af that. It’s easier to manage in jars than a giant bag. It is great for sore muscles, strains, & sprains. I recently used it as a solution for constipation. So there’s that. Will continue to buy again.
It’s nice that I’ve found a epsom salt in Bulk. I work outside in extreme environments, so at night I enjoy a epsom soak. Good quality product, great price and I don’t have to pay outrageous prices for a 2lb bag anymore. Will be ordering consistently!
This brand is okay but not great. The ‘salts’ are not as fine as the popular brand, which requires more stirring up in water to dissolve. It was a better price, so I’m glad I got this one, but if I didn’t care about price, I would go with the more popular brand.
This is great Epson salt at a great price! I use it for detox baths for myself and my children when we have an onset of a cold. It stops the cold right in its tracks! Sniffles are significantly better or completely gone the next day! My son said his throat hurt and I gave him a detox bath using this Epson salt, and he never complained of his throat hurting again and didn't develop a runny nose at all! For kids (under 60 lbs), add 1/2 c. Epson salt, 1/4 c. baking soda, and 1-2 T. ginger (yes, ginger from your baking cabinet) to your bath water and soak in the water for at least 20 minutes. For kids 61-100 lbs, increase Epson salt to 1 c., baking soda to 1/2 c., and 1-2 T. ginger. For kids over 100 lbs and for adults, use 2 c. Epson salt, 1 c. baking soda, and 2 T. ginger. The hotter the water, the better. You will feel so much better the next day!
