Hi Shelby3. I've heard of it but haven't tried it. Mostly because I can no longer get in & out of a bathtub anymore safely. I've fallen twice... Lol I wasn't hurt, but it was a funny site! I have used Epsom for foot soaks and they do work, from hangnails to sprains. I would think they work in a film bath too. And no I wouldn't use anything with it. Let me know how it works if you try it. Goodnight! 🙏🌼
I've had Epsom Salt baths, but my kegs can no longer take being in warm water so I dissolve Epsom Salts and spray the water onto the skin. It seems to help with certain types of muscle spasms, but not as much for overall pain.
I take so many baths I should have gills. Yrs Epsom salts absolutely help me. Not directly on pain but with muscle aches and any relief is a bonus. I use 6 or 7 cups in a jacuzzi bathtub. Also if you cannot get in a tub you can still get the benefits from doing a concentrated foot soak or by spraying it on your body. I do not prefer that method because it leaves me feeling sticky and itchy like when you are in saltwater on a beach. Technically you kinda are. The magnesium is thought to help your nerves send information properly to the brain. Also I read a study that as many as 80% of us are suffering some degree of magnesium deficiency. I purchased a very concentrated bottle on line and it was just over priced and down right painful. Save your money and mix your own Epsom salts are cheap I purchase mine at Sam's 10 pounds for $6.00. Happy bathing to all.
