      Thanks for you question. I wasn't sure about it so I just search it online. It looks to be ok. In moderations of course. It's actually used as a home remedy for pets. There are many benefits of Epsom salts like...to treats wounds, a laxative and many other things. I didn't know this, so thanks to your question, I learned something new today. 😊

    I'd like to try using Epsom salt for snow on ceramic houses. Will the Epsom salt yellow with time? I usually use glitter. Thank you.

    Your website isn’t linking. It will only take me to barn tree place and their advertising. I have typed the address, copied and pasted tried numerous methods but can’t get past barn tree place. I suggest a better web supplier.
