Take a relaxing soak in Epsom salt to help relieve stress and leave you feeling revived.

Epsom Salt in the Garden to help Plants, Fertilizer
Studies show that magnesium and sulphur, two naturally occurring minerals that are major components of Epsom salt, may help plants grow greener with higher yields and more blooms. Magnesium creates an environment conducive to growth by helping seeds to germinate, increasing chlorophyll production and improving phosphorus and nitrogen uptake. Sulphur is also a key element in plant growth, helping produce vitamins. Tests by the National Gardening Association show that Epsom salt helps produce more flowers and makes pepper plants grow larger. And experts say Epsom salt reduces the total amounts of fertilisers needed and makes the fertilisers used more effective.
