Epsom Salt Bath Has Several Health Benefits

Soaking in an Epsom Salt Bath Has Several Health Benefits, as Your Mother Said

Aside from the self-care movement, you've probably heard about Epsom salt's healing properties.

This mineral, also known as magnesium sulfate, has long been touted as a muscle relaxant (and a trick up Mom's sleeve). 

This chemical is often compared to conventional sea salt, but the important difference is that magnesium sulfate isn't a salt at all.

It's merely found in water and looks like salt grains, according to Cordelia Smith, the founder of Formulary 55.
