Uses for Epsom Salt

August 8, 2022

Epsom Salt (hydrated magnesium sulfate) has many uses.

Using Epsom salt as a fertilizer in your garden yields sweeter, tastier fruits and vegetables and is useful in seed germination. Apply 1 – 2 tablespoons into the soil per seed hole or use 1 cup of salt per 100 square feet of tilled soil for the best results.

Do you have aches and pains after working in the garden? Add one cup of Epsom salt to a warm bath. My favorite is Epsom salts with lavender. It relieves muscle tension, and helps you to unwind at the end of the day for a restful night.
