Chances are you already know about the benefits of Epsom Salts. From soothing tension, muscles and sleep, all the way to supporting ASD, Fibromyalgia or CFS - Magnesium, (as Epsom Salts) are naturally the next best thing to a relaxing holiday!
But with so many to choose from, which one is right for you, and is there even a ‘right’ one? If you’re using Epsom Salts to support detoxification, these questions make perfect sense. After all – we want to remove impurities, not add more in! And by the time the decision is made to use Epsom Salts to support our bodies, we’re usually in a state of depletion or toxic overload - so of course purity matters.
While it may be OK to you to have a few nasties in the Epsom Salt that goes on your garden, you may be surprised to learn the same grades of Epsom salts are repackaged for personal use. Yes, even those called ‘food grade’. And while they provide magnesium sulphate, they also deposit other unwanted things into our burdened cells - like lead, arsenic, mercury and other heavy metals. And that’s a little scary to think about, right?
But most importantly, most of the cheaper salts are not of geological origin. And for people like us, who like things organic, natural and raw, those things matter.
Our Epsom Salt fulfils the requirements of FCC, Food Codex Alimentarius (FAO/WHO)
