The wonders of age old epsom salts will never cease – and there are quite a number of uses and benefits it seems. From soaks to scrubs, relax to laxative, muscle cramps to blood sugar to cleaning grout and preventing hardening of the arteries. Seems our forefathers knew a good thing when they soaked in it, right?

Epsom Salts

Fresh from a little nip and tuck of my toe (nails), I’m now a week out and still swollen, bruised and hurting.
