More about Epsom salt
Epsom salt’s chemical name is magnesium sulfate. One story about magnesium sulfates takes place in the Epsom region of England. During a drought in 1618, a local cow herder named Henry Wicker bent down to drink from a pool of water in Epsom Common. He found the water acidic and bitter.
As the water evaporated, Wicker noticed white residue left behind and realized after drinking the water that it had a laxative effect. Epsom’s salts became a sought-after cure for constipation for hundreds of years following this happenstance discovery.
In 1755, a British chemist and physicist named Joseph Black conducted experiments on the chemical properties of magnesium sulfate. He proposed that magnesium be classified as an element.
Magnesium is essential for every life form on the planet. In the human body, it’s necessary for muscle and nerve function and maintaining a healthy immune system. It’s also needed to maintain a regular heartbeat, sufficient blood glucose, and strong bones
Epsom salt baths can be relaxing and soothing. The benefits of a soak in Epsom salt-treated water have not been proven scientifically yet, but many people swear by this folk remedy. There’s very little downside to using Epsom salts in a bath.
Baths in general can be meditative and are a great way to take a break from daily stressors. Epsom salt may help your bath become even more relaxing by soothing tired muscles and easing stress.
You can also try different types of soaks, such as oatmeal baths or plain old bubble baths, to see if you get the same results.
