To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This has "saline laxative" printed on it, yet it smells and tastes likes scented soap. So, in my opinion it's not for ingestion. I like to sprinkle a very tiny bit of epsom salt into my water to get rid of the bitterness from the filtered water taste. This does not help. In fact, it's far worse than the filtered water taste. I'd strongly advise against buying this product if you don't like drinking soap, or whatever else may be in this. Whatever it is, it's not listed on the packaging or the product page. So it's either been contaminated with their other scented epsom salt products, or it's a misprint on the label.
This "unscented" epsom salt is actually lightly scented with lavender or eucalyptus (difficult to discern exactly what the scent is.) I went ahead and used it anyway to bathe in, but out of concern of other people's health especially since some take this internally, this product should be properly labeled. I'd definitely return it if I had a sensitivity to scent.
I thought it important to leave a review here since almost all the other 1 star reviews had the same issue. I read another reviewer's comment about hair fallout, and it helped me put two and two together: I noticed that I've had a WAY more than normal hair shedding since beginning use of this product, where I've never had this issue before. I get the normal summer shedding but it's to the point where I'll run my hands through my hair and at least 5-7 strands come out each time. I've never experienced this before in my entire life.
Definitely going to look for another brand of unscented epsom salt option elsewhere.
This Epsom salt smells strongly of some kind of essential oils. The instructions say it can be taken orally as a laxative. It smells so bad that I am not going to take it orally. I hope you are warning people against this.
Just opened my UNSCENTED Epsom salt that arrived yesterday and this batch must’ve gotten put in the wrong bag because it reeks of lavender. I can’t tolerate lavender. Also very large granules and doesn’t dissolve easily
I bought this for my garden not for my bath and it has a strong smell of something like lavender. It is not listed on ingredients but I know for sure it’s not just epsom salt. Which would have been great if I was bathing in it not to use for my vegetables! Highly upset this is not listed or mentioned.
I am fragrance sensitive and I was dismayed to find that this product had picked up a scent from somewhere along its route. I have noticed other amazon items coming with a scent. It's that same scent that is used in so many places and often on plastic bags.
Bag says it is tamper proof and not to use if opened, but it had been broken open, resealed with packing tape, and placed in a plastic bag to contain the continuing leakage. Given the use did not include ingesting the open container was more of an aggravation than a potential health issue, but something which should not have happened in any case.
