"The summer of 1618 saw England gripped by drought, but as Henry Wicker, a local cowherd, walked across Epsom Common he came across a pool of water from which his thirsty cattle refused to drink. The water tasted bitter and on evaporation yielded a salt which had a remarkable effect." Wicker also noted how quickly wounds healed when soaking them in this pool of bitter water.
English citizens traveled tp Epsom Common in droves to experience the miracle health benefits of the stress and pain-relieving water.
"Epsom’s salts" (magnesium sulfate, MgSO4) became a treatment for wounds, muscle soreness, and anxiety for the next 400 years.
Magnesium sulfate is a naturally occurring, highly absorbable, muscle-relaxing mineral solution for muscle soreness. The results felt are long-lasting and fast-acting when used properly. Magnesium sulfate is typically used by athletes but is also beneficial to individuals suffering from anxiety.
Epsom Salt has been used by doctors around the world for hundreds of years to treat sprains, bruises, and muscle aches. It penetrates the skin making it ideal for soothing deep muscle tissue.
For hundreds of years, this salt has been used to treat ailments, such as constipation, insomnia, and fibromyalgia. Despite its name, Epsom salt is a completely different compound than table salt. It was most likely termed “salt” because of its chemical structure. When Epsom salt is dissolved in water, it releases magnesium and sulfate ions.
