Ease muscle strain: Add 2 cups to bath water and soak for at least 20 minutes.

Cut & inflammation relief: A thick paste of Epsom salt and water applied to the affected area will provide additional relief.
Foot care: Soaking your feet in an Epsom salt bath can help relieve the symptoms of Athlete's Foot, gout and toenail fungus.
Splinter remover: If you have a splinter, soak the area in Epsom salts and hot water and the splinter will dislodge on its own.
Hair clarifier: To remove product buildup combine one gallon of water, one cup of lemon juice and one cup of Epsom salts.Cover the mixture and let it sit for at least 24 hours. When it is ready,pour it over dry hair and leave it on for 20 minutes before shampooing.
