Epsom Salts

Help your garden grow

Say goodbye to slugs

Sprinkle Epsom Salts in or around gardens and other areas you don’t want slugs invading to keep them away.

Beautiful roses

Sprinkle a tablespoon of Epsom Salts around a rose bush and water for faster growth. Can be done once a month.

Garden soil preparation

Magnesium in the soil helps improve plant growth. It can be added during the growing season, but we see the best results when we mix it into the soil too. What to do: Add a bag or two of Epsom Salts to the soil and till in to replenish soil magnesium levels.

Grow better vegetables

Add 1 tablespoon per plant a couple times during the year and it helps plant growth, especially tomatoes. What to do: Sprinkle a tablespoon of Epsom Salts around the base of a plant after it has grown to at least 12 inches tall.

Healthy house plants

Just like garden plants, house plants love a magnesium boost once in a while. Sprinkle a little Epsom Salts on the soil in a house plant container or add a little Epsom Salts to the water when watering. A tablespoon is usually plenty for a month or two.

Around the house

Tile and grout cleaner

Want to clean your tile without a toxic chemical cleaner? Add some Epsom Salts to some liquid dish soap and scrub away. Just make sure to rinse well since the soap will be slippery! Mix equal parts liquid dish soap and Epsom Salts and scrub tile and grout with a brush.

Splinter removal

Dissolve 1/3 cup Epsom Salts in 1 cup of warm/hot water and stir until completely dissolved. Soak the affected finger/toe/body part with the splinter for at least 10 minutes and carefully remove the splinter with tweezers or a sewing needle. Also, use common sense: if the splinter is big, deep, a puncture wound, bleeding, or simply won’t come out, visit a doctor.

 

 

In the Bath

Relaxing bath soak

Add a cup of lavender-scented Epsom Salts to a warm bath and soak for 20 minutes.

Foot soak

Add 1 cup of Epsom Salts to hot water for a concentrated foot soak. We recommend our eucalyptus and spearmint-scented Epsom Salts to invigorate fatigued feet.

Magnesium foot scrub

In a small bowl, mix:

• 1 cup of Epsom Salts (a natural source of magnesium)
• 1/4 cup olive oil or almond oil
• 1 teaspoon liquid castile soap
• Optional: 10-15 drops of essential oil of choice

Store in an airtight jar and use a teaspoon sized amount to exfoliate feet as needed. Rinse after use.

Salt body scrub

Mix 1/2 cup Epsom Salts with 1/4 cup olive or almond oil and use as an exfoliating scrub in the shower.
