5.0 out of 5 starsCheap, effective, salty goodness
December 26, 2018
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.
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.
I wish I could soak in a bath tub with dissolved epsom salt to sooth my aches, but I don't have a bath tub. However, I've learned that by soaking my FEET in a basin of warm water & epsom salt I can reap many benefits by absorbing magnesium transdermally. It relaxes me, helps me to sleep better, increases my magnesium level, and helps diminish my aches and pains.
I appreciate that the packages are 8 lbs. each instead of much heavier weights as it would be hard to carry. I do wish the salt was in a container with a lid that I could scoop out what amount I want to add to my foot soak--but I simply pour the contents of the bag into a different container so I can do that. I do this at the current price ($28.72 for three 8 lb. bags) is NOT a great price, so shop around.
I had been curious about epsom salts for a while and was happy to try the Amazon brand epsom salts. If you add the epsom salts to a hot/warm bath, they can help relax sore muscles and soothe the body - it helps remove the stresses of the day. Another way to use these salts is to mix them with body oil and use them as an exfoliant. I did love the feel of these epsom salts as I exfoliated -- it is an inexpensive treat.
Three large bags of Epsom salt at a reasonable price. This is Amazon's own brand Solimo, usually comes in very simple packaging. Epsom salt is used for bath to relieve aching muscles but my daughter uses it often to soak her feet. She does ballet and has been doing it for 8 years. It also helps prevent her feet from getting stinky.
I got this because I had a sore in a difficult area of my foot and my doctor recommended I try using epsom salt soaks to heal it. It works, I guess, as the wound is healing.
My only complaint is that there are no instructions to how much to use. The bag just says "pour generously into warm running water". How much is that? A cup? A pound? 3 pounds?. A little clarity would be nice. Otherwise, good price and I love having it delivered to me.
I used this for the 1st time and am disappointed in the strength of the salts' s. Seems to be less than optimal strength, will not order again,. I checked, the use by date is August 2022, so well within the freshness date. When I opened the package, it had solidified to some extent, maybe had been in an area with lots of moisture, not normally a problem...I don't believe it affected the salt other than to clump it together.
Amazon’s Solimo brand is really branching out with supplements and other health products. Their epsom salt is good quality. It dissolves well in the bath and helps me relax and destress (plus get some transdermal magnesium). I prefer the unscented kind, and I add my own essential oils to it.
Three 8-pound bags for $28 is not the best price you can get for epsom salt if you want to shop around some.
