1.  Get rid of that Thanksgiving Belly!

Epsom Salt contains magnesium sulfate which is easily absorbed by the human skin and helps release unnecessary toxins from the body. “The night before, I suggest taking an Epsom Salt bath. You add 12 pounds of Epsom Salt in hot bath water, soak for 20 minutes, wash off in cold water, go to bed, and wake up leaner!’ says [Celebrity Nutritionist] Goglia. 12 pounds may sound like a lot, but the goal is to lose water weight, so the salt content is very high, as opposed to a few cups for a leisurely soak.” - Byrdie 

Use the Epsoak Everyday Pure and Unscented for best results. 

2. Cure that New Year’s Eve Hangover! ​

Now that you know Epsom Salt is pure Magnesium Sulfate, it’s time for a quick science crash course! The consumption of alcohol depletes magnesium in our bodies, which leads to the feeling of sleepiness, nausea, and nervousness. Rebooting with an Epsom Salt soak the next morning can help regain magnesium in your body.

Use the Epsoak Relax + Refresh for best results - there is nothing like a relaxing bath after a night out. 

3. Get over that travel jet lag!

Travelling can make you feel tired and bloated. Taking an Epsom Salt bath can help you get rid of the harmful toxins you acquired when you were away from home and reboot you just in time for the new year! Plus, who wouldn’t want to soak in their own tub after a long trip?

Use the Epsoak Detox & Cleanse for best results. It has added essential oils that facilitate the detoxint process. 

4. DIY Door Frost

Many of us live in areas that don’t ever get snow. Those of us must find alternatives to bring in that holiday cheer. The perfect way is by DIY frost on your windows! Epsom Salt has properties that allow it to form into structures like ice crystals.

Things You Need: cooking pot, 1 cup of Epsom salt, a wooden spoon, 3 tbsp. dish detergent, and a paintbrush


Pour 1 1/2 cups of water into a cooking pot and place the pot on the stove.

Bring the pot to a boil over a high heat. Slowly stir in 1 cup of Epsom Salt.

Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until the Epsom Salt is completely dissolved.

Remove the mixture from the heat and allow it to cool slightly.

Mix in 3 tbsp. of liquid dish detergent.

Paint the mixture onto the window using a paintbrush. The “frost” will start to form as the solution dries.
