This is as good as any epson salt that I've used. This has crystals of varying sizes and it dissolves fairly quickly. The small ones go immediately into solution, but if you want to do a salt scrub with it, the larger ones are big enough for that. It's unscented, and I like that, because I like to use my own essential oil blends. You can use this about 2 handfuls to a bathtub, but sometimes I use a lot more if I am really sore. My son likes it too - he lifts weights and it helps him recover when he's really put a lot of work in. This unscented kind is also good to make homemade magnesium oil, if you want to use it for that, or you can use it as a laxative (which I have never done myself, but it is graded to be OK for that.) I also like to give this to my plants - I just throw a few handfuls out before the rain- the roses really love it, it makes for very green plants. I have a friend who saves her bathwater in watering cans to give to the plants when she soaks in it. I'm not really able to carry water like that, but that is a way that she really stretches the use of this out. The bags can be reclosed if you just cut them on the dotted line from the top.
Epsom salts have so many uses. First and foremost, it creates the most relaxing and soothing bath ever. I throw in a handful or two while the tub is filling and add a few drops of essential oil. An epsom salts soak always helps me get a really good night's sleep. Another benefit from a epsom salts bath is that it softens skin and it can be used as a exfoliant to remove dry skin. It's good for sunburn, stings, irritated skins and rashes - just mix with water and spray on or use the solution to wet a paper towel or washcloth and use as a compress. I also use it in my garden, dissolving it in water to use as a fertilizer. This can be sprayed directly on the leaves, or just poured into the soil at the base of the plant. You can also just sprinkle dry epsom salts around roses, shrubs and trees every few weeks. Epsom salts can be mixed with essential oils, herbs, dried flowers, oils and other ingredients to make fancy bath salts. There are a multitude of recipes if you need inspiration.
I frequently use epsom salts in a hot bath. I have arthritis and a great deal of joint and back pain, so I try to take a 20 minute, hot bath, complete with epsom salts, at least three times a week. This is my first time using the Solimo Amazon brand product, but I will definitely be ordering from them again in the future! The salts quickly dissolve in your bath water and don't leave a chalky residue (unlike other brands I have used before). I prefer the unscented option I got, since I do not want the smell of the epsom salts to compete with my body wash or body lotion I use.
And the price for this product? $33.24 for 24 pounds of epsom salts? You can't beat that! This product would also make a great gift choice, too. I highly recommend this product.
What an amazing deal! You get six bags of Epsom salt at less that $6 unit. I normally pay close to $8 for my grocery store's generic brand.
I appreciate that these are unscented, which allows me all of the benefits of soaking in salts while not upsetting my allergies with strong scents like lavender. After a long week with lots of moving around, I always pine for a weekend bath to sooth my minor aches and muscle stiffness. I add anywhere from 1.5-2 cups of Epsom salt to my bath and I always notice immediate, gentle relief. It helps everything loosen up and relax. This package will last me for a long time.
A word of warning however: the box will be heavy! If you have trouble lifting heavy objects, be sure to have someone on hand to assist you.
I pour some of this into a foot bath whenever my feet start aching. You are getting a pack of 6 bags (each one weighing 4 lbs) that will last you a very long time, as I don't anticipate using much each time I soak my feet. This bulk edition is best for large families or for those with a number of aging relatives all suffering various aches and pains. It's not just for feet - it's good for back and shoulder pains as well.
You can also drink it, but I would hesitate to do so as it functions as a laxative in that manner. As for the quality, the Solimo brand works as well as any drugstore or generic store brand. The best part about ordering this online is not having to carry heavy bags home - so the convenience factor is great,
I love to add Epson salt to bath especially with sore muscles. This one is unscented which my boyfriend likes when he takes a bath with Epson salt, I had lavender kind before and he didn't really like that. I also use Epson salt in my bath bombs as well. And this one works great for it.
I haven't used this Epson salt for constipation. The instructions say: For best results, dissolve the recommended dose (as shown on packaging) in 8 ounces of water and drink. Lemon juice may be added to improve the taste. I never even thought you could use Epson salt like that...
Amazon Brand - Solimo Epsom Salt Soaking Aid, 4 Pound (Pack of 6). This is great for your aching body, especially after doing yard work. It is a relaxing and soothing and relieves your aching muscles. There is a very light lavendar scent which helps you to relax and your skin feels soft after the bath. Just pour just pour a generous amount of Epsom salts into the warm running water, it takes a little while to completely dissolve. There is no film left in the tub to clean up after.
Mr Trouble likes to soak in epsom salts. I used to only use it for my feet but apparently the whole tub is also an interesting option.
He says it makes his muscles and all over feel better. Since he is just starting spring boat work, having something for him to soak in is a win win. It just helps all over. Plus it's like I helped. Hmm.
I use Epson salts to reduce muscular pain in the bathtub. It works great. All unscented Epsom salt is really the same thing so why choose Solimo brand? Simply put, it's less expensive. For me that's as good a reason as any. I guess pureness is important as well and this is. got a bunch so I won't need any more for a while.
I soak in epsom salt in my bathtub several times a month to help with muscle pain. I need to add at least a full cup to the bathwater to make it effective. This 4 pound box is perfect and will last me along time. Easy to use in 6 separate packs with a zip locking top.
