Allergy to epsom salt: Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt) – Side Effects, Interactions, Uses, Dosage, Warnings


Everything you need to know about Epsom bath salts

Epsom bath salts grow ever more popular as a way to make baths as relaxing as possible.

In this article we answer the top questions about Epsom bath salts to give people clarity and the confidence to use them correctly.

1. What are Epsom bath salts made of?

Epsom Salt is the common name of magnesium sulphate, a chemical compound crystalised as heptahydrate. It gets its name from a spring in Epsom, Surrey and was formed as a result of chalk meeting clay.

Epsom was a popular spa town in the Georgian period and the use of the local salt was used for all kinds of beneficial cleansing and health purposes, hence its association with relaxing bathing.

2. Are they safe and do they have health benefits?

While no specific scientific research has officially confirmed the health benefits of Epsom salts, they have been used since Georgian and Victorian times to treat a range of health conditions.

Epsom salts are often used in foot baths as a way of easing sore feet are often claimed to cleanse the skin and treat muscle pain. They are also used in baths to help prevent the wrinkling of the skin that often temporarily occurs when the body is immersed in water.

There are also internal treatments for bronchial infections, though the salts designed for use in baths should not be ingested. Use of Epsom salts for internal purposes should only be done after consulting a professional.

3. Are there situations where you shouldn’t use Epsom salts?

It’s important to only use the amount of Epsom salt recommended on the packaging.

Using too much in the bath can cause your skin to dry out and taking too much orally can lead to an irregular heartbeat and low blood pressure.

Some people have been known to have allergic reactions to Epsom salts, manifesting itself in itchy skin, hives or skin infections. If you do suspect you might be vulnerable to an Epsom salt allergy, try putting some on a small patch of skin first to test it out.

As with anything involving a bath, make sure that your Epsom salt bath isn’t so hot that it scalds your skin.

4. Should you use Epsom salt?

If you are happy that you don’t have an allergy to Epsom salts them they are a great option to consider for your next luxury relaxing bath.

Some believe that the magnesium in the salt gets absorbed through the skin and helps with aches, pains and swelling, as well as being good for the skin.

Warm baths are always relaxing, so even if you don’t notice any physical benefits, you’re bound to feel more mentally and emotionally rejuvenated after having a long soak in an Epsom salt bath.

​Epsom Salt for Natural Relief from Bites, Stings, Rashes, Itching and Sunburn

Epsom salt is a truly wonderful little mineral. Comprised of magnesium and sulfur, it has a truly astonishing range of uses 
around the house, for beauty, and for arts and crafts. It is also a great, natural way to relieve bites, stings, rashes, itching and sunburn – basically anything that irritates the skin.

Epsom salt is great for providing natural relief from bites, stings, rashes, itching, sunburn and more. Just another reason that every household should have some on hand at all times!

How Epsom Salt Helps Soothe Irritation

The main reason that bites, stings, rashes and sunburn become irritated is because of inflammation. This is your body’s natural defence mechanism. If your immune system recognises damaged cells, irritants, and pathogens, it begins the healing process through inflammation. Swelling, heat, redness, tenderness, and itchiness are a couple of inflammatory processes.

Inflammation is usually beneficial in the short term. However, it often causes more harm than good, which is why you often hear it in a negative context.

Where does Epsom salt come into all of this? Well, Epsom salt is rich in 
magnesium, and magnesium has been proven to dramatically reduce inflammation in all its forms. Our skin is very porous, and these tiny openings allow sweat, oils and toxins to exit the body, and for substances to be absorbed, so when you apply Epsom salt directly to inflamed skin, it is delivered directly to the source, essentially putting a chill on the inflammation process.

What Can I Use Epsom Salt To Treat?

Try using Epsom salt to treat any of the following:

  • Insect stings
  • Poison ivy, poison sumac, poison oak rash
  • Dry, cracked or itchy skin due to eczema or psoriasis
  • Blisters
  • Boils
  • Ways To Use Epsom Salt For Treating Bites, Stings, Rashes And More

    There are a couple of ways to use Epsom salt to treat inflamed skin. Let’s take a look:

    Make a compress – For localised inflammation, such as a large rash or a patch of itchy skin, try using an Epsom salt soaked compress. Simply mix some Epsom salt with warm water (two tablespoons per cup of water), stir until dissolved. Soak a clean cotton washcloth in the water, wring lightly, then apply to the affected skin for 5 minutes. Repeat.

    Make a paste – For smaller rashes, stings or bites, you might want to make a paste that you can apply regularly. To do this, add a teaspoon of Epsom salt to about a cup of hot water, stirring until dissolved. Then place the solution in the fridge for 20 minutes. Clean the affected area, pat dry, and apply the paste as required.

    Make a lotion – To make a lotion, simply add 1/2 cup of Epsom Salts with 3/4 cup of warm water, then 2 cups of neutral moisturiser lotion. Mix until well combined and scoop into a jar. This is great for sunburn.

    Have a bath – For whole-body relief, add two cups of Epsom salt to a standard-sized bathtub. Allow to dissolve, then soak for 10-20 minutes. This is a great for also sunburn (particularly if it’s everywhere!).

    We think every household should have Epsom salt on hand at all times. You never know when you might need it! Check out our range of

    7 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Epsom Salt – Cleveland Clinic

    Integrative medicine is known for treating the patient’s mind and body, considering how these are closely connected. Epsom salt is one tool that integrative medical specialists often recommend for its physical and mental health benefits.

    Cleveland Clinic is a non-profit academic medical center. Advertising on our site helps support our mission. We do not endorse non-Cleveland Clinic products or services. Policy

    While no clinical trials have confirmed the benefits of Epsom salt, many doctors promote it for its ease of use, reasonable price and minimally invasive delivery.

    Naoki Umeda, MD, from Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Integrative Medicine, shares seven valuable insights on the health benefits of Epsom salt as well as its recommended usage:

    It’s nothing like table salt. Epsom salt was named for a bitter saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England. It is one of many naturally occurring mineral salts, a compound of magnesium and sulfate.

    Epsom salt is good for the mind. Epsom salt helps stabilize mood and relieve stress, anxiety and depression. In fact, some researchers claim that taking magnesium increases serotonin (happiness or relaxation hormone) production in the brain.

    Epsom salt is good for the body. Epsom salt helps relax muscles and relieve pain in the shoulders, neck, back and skull. For example, by relaxing the muscles surrounding the skull, the magnesium in Epsom salt may help release a headache or migraine.

    Some researchers also think that magnesium is good for reducing inflammation in internal organs. This may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and improve digestion/bowel movement. Integrative medical experts commonly recommend Epsom salt to patients with chronic fatigue syndrome and cold intolerance.

    What about Epsom salt’s ability to correct a magnesium deficiency? While doctors expect better magnesium absorption through the skin, there’s no published research that compares oral magnesium supplementation with magnesium absorption through the skin.

    It only takes 15 minutes to benefit. Put 300 grams of Epsom salt into a bathtub filled with hot water. In just 15 minutes, you will start to experience the mental and physical benefits of Epsom salt.

    Epsom salt is for external use only. Some may claim that drinking Epsom salt is good for detoxification. The truth is that drinking Epsom salt causes some people to experience serious side effects such as severe diarrhea. Sudden and dramatic changes in bowel behavior can be very dangerous and cause dehydration and discomfort. There are no studies to prove that taking Epsom salt orally is safe or beneficial.

    It’s bad for people with severe skin inflammation or infection. No one with an open wound or a severe burn should use Epsom salt. If you have an open wound, consult your dermatologist before use.

    Buy Epsom salt from a reputable source. Healthy supermarkets (e.g., Whole Foods Market or Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market) typically offer the best quality Epsom salt. Be sure to buy 100 percent magnesium sulfate. Beware of online retailers who may offer exceptional deals but cannot guarantee quality or purity.

    Detoxify with Epsom Salts! – Natural Allergy Treatment

    What are Epsom salts?

    Epsom salt is not actually salt, but a combination of naturally-occurring minerals, magnesium and sulphate.

    Best known as an ingredient in bath salts, Epsom salts have been used for hundreds of years to relieve all kinds of aches and pains. But did you know that they can also stimulate detoxification pathways to help eliminate toxins in the body? Here’s how …


    How do Epsom salts detoxify?

    Phenols are natural chemical compounds found in a wide range of food (3), including colourful fruit and vegetables, grains, legumes and some spices and beverages.

    They are also responsible for taste and smell and are processed by the Phenol Sulphotransferase pathway (we’ll call this PST), and then flushed out via the kidneys.

    However, when the PST is not functioning as it should, the body cannot process Phenols as quickly as they are consumed, which may mean your body is unable to get rid of toxins (a condition known as impaired detoxification).

    Luckily, when added to water, Epsom salts turn into magnesium sulphate, which is readily absorbable by the skin. When absorbed, sulphate attaches to toxins like phenols, supporting the PST pathway in the detoxification process.(2)



    Symptoms of impaired detoxification

    Impaired detoxification may help explain symptoms that appear to appear to occur randomly, including (1):

    –   sleep issues (night sweats, night waking)

    –   behavioural disorders

    –   eczema and other skin rashes

    –   headaches and migraines

    –   respiratory symptoms


    How to use Epsom salts

    The most common way to use Epsom salt is to add it to your bath and soak for about 20 minutes. Start with a small amount (say between a couple of tablespoons to half a cup), and to work your way up to multiple cups or as much as the bath water will dissolve.

    You can also dissolve Epsom salts water so to apply it as a spray, use it in a footbath or even sponge it onto the skin so that it can dry into a fine white layer.


    How PAT can help

    Impaired detoxification pathways can result in an accumulation of phenols, such as salicylates (found in brightly coloured fruit and vegetables) and food additives, which can spark reactions in sensitive people.

    CDC – Cercarial Dermatitis – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


    What is swimmer’s itch?

    Swimmer’s itch, also called cercarial dermatitis, appears as a skin rash caused by an allergic reaction to certain microscopic parasites that infect some birds and mammals. These parasites are released from infected snails into fresh and salt water (such as lakes, ponds, and oceans). While the parasite’s preferred host is the specific bird or mammal, if the parasite comes into contact with a swimmer, it burrows into the skin causing an allergic reaction and rash. Swimmer’s itch is found throughout the world and is more frequent during summer months.

    How does water become infested with the parasite?

    The adult parasite lives in the blood of infected animals such as ducks, geese, gulls, swans, and certain mammals such as muskrats and raccoons. The parasites produce eggs that are passed in the feces of infected birds or mammals.

    If the eggs land in or are washed into the water, the eggs hatch, releasing small, free-swimming microscopic larvae. These larvae swim in the water in search of a certain species of aquatic snail.

    If the larvae find one of these snails, they infect the snail, multiply and undergo further development. Infected snails release a different type of microscopic larvae (or cercariae, hence the name cercarial dermatitis) into the water. This larval form then swims about searching for a suitable host (bird, muskrat) to continue the lifecycle. Although humans are not suitable hosts, the microscopic larvae burrow into the swimmer’s skin, and may cause an allergic reaction and rash. Because these larvae cannot develop inside a human, they soon die.

    What are the signs and symptoms of swimmer’s itch?

    Symptoms of swimmer’s itch may include:

    • tingling, burning, or itching of the skin
    • small reddish pimples
    • small blisters

    Within minutes to days after swimming in contaminated water, you may experience tingling, burning, or itching of the skin. Small reddish pimples appear within twelve hours. Pimples may develop into small blisters. Scratching the areas may result in secondary bacterial infections. Itching may last up to a week or more, but will gradually go away.

    Because swimmer’s itch is caused by an allergic reaction to infection, the more often you swim or wade in contaminated water, the more likely you are to develop more serious symptoms. The greater the number of exposures to contaminated water, the more intense and immediate symptoms of swimmer’s itch will be.

    Be aware that swimmer’s itch is not the only rash that may occur after swimming in fresh or salt water.

    Do I need to see my health care provider for treatment?

    Most cases of swimmer’s itch do not require medical attention. If you have a rash, you may try the following for relief:

    • Use corticosteroid cream
    • Apply cool compresses to the affected areas
    • Bathe in Epsom salts or baking soda
    • Soak in colloidal oatmeal baths
    • Apply baking soda paste to the rash (made by stirring water into baking soda until it reaches a paste-like consistency)
    • Use an anti-itch lotion

    Though difficult, try not to scratch. Scratching may cause the rash to become infected. If itching is severe, your health care provider may suggest prescription-strength lotions or creams to lessen your symptoms.

    Can swimmer’s itch be spread from person-to-person?

    Swimmer’s itch is not contagious and cannot be spread from one person to another.

    Who is at risk for swimmer’s itch?

    Anyone who swims or wades in infested water may be at risk. Larvae are more likely to be present in shallow water by the shoreline. Children are most often affected because they tend to swim, wade, and play in the shallow water more than adults. Also, they are less likely to towel dry themselves when leaving the water.

    Once an outbreak of swimmer’s itch has occurred in water, will the water always be unsafe?

    No. Many factors must be present for swimmer’s itch to become a problem in water. Since these factors change (sometimes within a swim season), swimmer’s itch will not always be a problem. However, there is no way to know how long water may be unsafe. Larvae generally survive for 24 hours once they are released from the snail. However, an infected snail will continue to produce cercariae throughout the remainder of its life. For future snails to become infected, migratory birds or mammals in the area must also be infected so the lifecycle can continue.

    Is it safe to swim in my swimming pool?

    Yes. As long as your swimming pool is well maintained and chlorinated, there is no risk of swimmer’s itch. The appropriate snails must be present in order for swimmer’s itch to occur.

    What can be done to reduce the risk of swimmer’s itch?

    To reduce the likelihood of developing swimmer’s itch

    • Do not swim in areas where swimmer’s itch is a known problem or where signs have been posted warning of unsafe water.
    • Do not swim near or wade in marshy areas where snails are commonly found.
    • Towel dry or shower immediately after leaving the water.
    • Do not attract birds (e.g., by feeding them) to areas where people are swimming.
    • Encourage health officials to post signs on shorelines where swimmer’s itch is a current problem.

    Epsom salts contains the active compound magnesium sulfate and is used most commonly as a laxative. There are potential serious toxic effects, including cardiac arrest, when the serum concentration rises above therapeutic values. We present a case of deliberate self poisoning with a large quantity of Epsom salts, resulting in a toxic serum magnesium concentration of 9.7 mmol/l (0.70–1.0 mmol/l). Clinical features included limb weakness, vomiting and confusion, with a subsequent rapid deterioration in level of consciousness and bradydysrhythmia. There was no significant response to calcium gluconate, so haemodialysis was urgently arranged. The patient made a full recovery. Hypermagnesaemia is unusual in patients with normal renal function. Although clinical severity does not always correlate with serum magnesium values, risk of cardiac arrest occurs with concentrations >6 mmol/l. Initial treatment is supportive. Dialysis should be considered when life threatening features or renal impairment are present.


    Epsom salts contains the active compound magnesium sulfate, which is medically used for the treatment of eclampsia, asthma and cardiac arrhythmias. When the serum concentration rises above therapeutic values serious toxicity may occur, including cardiac arrest. The National Poisons Information Service provides expert toxicology advice, invaluable when patients are critically ill and unresponsive to initial treatment.


    A 46-year-old woman deliberately ingested approximately 2 kg of Epsom salts in a suicide attempt. Approximately 2 h after ingestion she presented to the emergency department complaining of difficulty standing and shortness of breath, having collapsed and vomited in the bathroom at home.

    Initial Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) was 13/15 (eye 3 motor 6 verbal 4), non-invasive blood pressure 125/65 mm Hg, pulse 56 beats/min, and respiratory rate 15/min. Physical examination demonstrated generalised limb weakness, hypotonia, and reduced deep tendon reflexes.


    An electrocardiogram revealed sinus bradycardia that progressed to first degree atrioventricular block within 30 min of presentation. Blood results were normal other than serum magnesium concentration of 9.7 mmol/l, potassium 2.9 mmol/l, and glucose 8.9 mmol/l. Chest x ray revealed radiological evidence of aspiration.


    In addition to supportive treatment, intravenous fluids and oxygen, 10 ml of 10% calcium gluconate was given to counteract the myocardial depressant effects of the magnesium. There was no improvement. A bradydysrhythmia developed with a heart rate of 20–30 beats/min. Blood pressure was stable throughout. The heart rate responded to 0.5 mg of atropine. During this time the patient’s GCS had fallen to 3/15. A rapid sequence induction was performed and mechanical ventilation commenced.

    Toxicology advice from the National Poisons Information Service was to expedite haemodialysis.

    The patient was transferred to the intensive therapy unit and dialysed. Serum magnesium concentration was 1.3 mmol/l after 72 h.


    There were no further episodes of cardiac dysrhythmias. The patient developed sepsis secondary to aspiration pneumonia that responded to antibiotics and inotropes. Due to recurrent right pleural effusions she remained in hospital for a further 3 weeks, but subsequently made a full recovery.

    Psychiatric review concluded this was an impulsive act with no ongoing suicidal ideation and she was discharged home with community mental health follow-up.


    A number of cases reporting accidental toxicity and death from Epsom salts either orally or rectally have been documented in the literature as far back as the early 1900s.18 We are not aware of any reports of deliberate self poisoning with suicidal intent using Epsom salts.

    Magnesium is an essential cofactor for over 300 enzymatic reactions, especially those involving adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Only 1% of magnesium occurs extracellulary, with the majority in the skeleton and the rest in muscle and soft tissues. Therapeutic administration has become established in the treatment of eclampsia, torsades de pointes, atrial fibrillation, and asthma. It also has less well defined roles in the treatment of myocardial infarction, alcoholism, stroke and hypertension.

    Magnesium is mostly absorbed from the small intestine. Hypermagnesaemia is rare without concomitant renal failure since the kidney can normally excrete excess magnesium efficiently by reducing tubular reabsorption to negligible amounts.

    Initial signs of toxicity are non-specific. Nausea, vomiting and flushing progress to reduced conscious level, hypotonia, hyporeflexia, hypothermia, hypotension and bradydysrhythmias. Risk of cardiac arrest is documented to occur at concentrations >6 mmol/l. Clinical severity is not always correlated with the degree of hypermagnesaemia. Cardiovascular effects are due to direct vasodilatation of vascular smooth muscle and inhibition of noradrenaline (norepinephrine) release from post-ganglionic sympathetic nerves. This produces hypotension, QT prolongation and delayed intraventricular conduction, potentially leading to heart block and asystole. Neurotoxicity is due to inhibition of acetylcholine release from the neuromuscular endplate.

    Treatment in most cases is supportive. If necessary, the airway should be protected and adequate ventilation provided. Intravenous fluids maintain blood pressure and urine output, and promote diuresis with elimination of magnesium. Specific treatment with intravenous calcium (either gluconate or chloride) directly antagonises the effects of magnesium. It can reverse effects such as respiratory depression, hypotension and arrhythmias and may be life saving. Our patient continued to deteriorate after administration of calcium gluconate, but it is unclear whether this was entirely attributable to the toxic effects of magnesium. Inotropic support may be necessary.

    In patients who fail to respond to these measures, have life threatening features or have renal failure, dialysis is the treatment of choice.2,4,5,8 Most of the ingested dose of magnesium would have remained in the extracellular compartment, since intracellular free magnesium is rigidly and homeostatically regulated, even in the face of very large changes in extracellular magnesium concentrations. Dialysis rapidly and efficiently removes small molecules from plasma within a short period of time and is far more effective than haemofiltration for this purpose.


    • Urgent dialysis should be considered for all patients with features of life threatening magnesium toxicity or those not responding to intravenous calcium and other supportive measures.

    • The authors acknowledge the expert advice from the National Poisons Information Service, which is invaluable in unusual or complicated cases of poisoning.

    What Should I Do If I Get Stung By A Fire Ant?

    Ouch! You’re probably going to have lots of stings. Each ant can sting more than once.

    People can have different reactions, such as itching, a swollen foot or arm, or even a severe allergic reaction that needs immediate medical care.

    Is My Reaction Normal or Risky?

    It’s normal to have a small, itchy lump, which usually gets better in 30 to 60 minutes. Within 8-24 hours you may get a small blister filled with fluid that looks like pus (it’s actually dead tissue).

    Some people have larger reactions around the sting. For example, one on your arm might cause your whole arm to swell. If you’re OK apart from that, you can start the following treatment on your own and then see your doctor.

    • Ice the sting off and on (15 minutes on, 15 minutes off). Use an ice pack, or put the ice in a towel. Don’t put ice directly on your skin, and don’t use heat.
    • Raise the part of your body where you got stung to reduce swelling.
    • Take an antihistamine and use a hydrocortisone cream to relieve itching.

    If the sting is very large and painful, your doctor may give you prescription antihistamines and steroids.

    A severe allergic reaction is rare, but it can be life-threatening. Symptoms include hives, cramping in your gut with nausea or diarrhea, tightness in your chest, trouble breathing, dizziness, and swelling of your tongue or throat. Call 911 right away. If you have an epinephrine shot, use it, and repeat after 5 to 15 minutes if your symptoms haven’t improved. You’ll still need medical care right after you give yourself the shots, even if your symptoms seem to stop, in order to prevent a delayed reaction.

    4 Ways to Avoid Fire Ants

    1. Stay away from fire ant nests. Be careful when you mow the lawn or work in your garden.
    2. Hire a trained exterminator to check for and get rid of fire ant nests around your home.
    3. Wear shoes and socks when you walk outside.
    4. Wear gloves when you garden.

    Once you have had a reaction to a fire ant sting, you have a 60% chance of having a similar or worse reaction if you are stung again. Ask your doctor if allergy shots would help and if you should carry an epinephrine auto-injector. If your doctor prescribes one, carry two injections with you.

    Salt aggravates allergies | Science and Life

    Salt causes some immune cells to turn into allergic lymphocytes.

    Medical statistics say that over the past half century, people have become more likely to suffer from a variety of allergic and autoimmune disorders. For example, the incidence of atopic dermatitis and hay fever, or hay fever (roughly speaking, pollen allergy) has doubled since the 1970s. One might assume that such diseases are simply being paid more attention to and better diagnosed, but experts argue that such statistics cannot be explained by this alone.

    Genetic hypotheses do not work either, according to which genes that increase allergic sensitivity to certain substrates have become more often found in the genomes of people. Obviously, the point is still in some changed environmental factors. And as the authors of a recent article in Science Translational Medicine argue, one such factor is common salt.

    Researchers at the Technical University of Munich experimented with two types of human T-lymphocytes: the so-called naive lymphocytes and memory T lymphocytes.Immune cells are called naive, which have never encountered any foreign molecules, which have not yet had to hunt for anyone. T-lymphocytes of memory, on the contrary, once had already dealt with some suspicious molecules and remembered them – in case you have to face them again.

    Both cells were grown in a nutrient medium in which the concentration of common salt and sodium chloride was changed. And it turned out that when there was a lot of salt in the medium, lymphocytes of both types began to synthesize many proteins (immune signaling factors and regulators of genetic activity), which made them look like the third type of lymphocytes – T-helpers 2.They secrete signaling proteins that force other immune cells to produce antibodies of the IgE class, and IgE antibodies, in turn, stimulate the release of histamine, leukotriene, etc.

    All this is necessary to ward off certain infections, but it has long been known that IgE antibodies, histamine, and other molecules, which become abundant under the influence of T-helpers 2, are involved in allergic reactions. Too active T-helpers 2 become the cause of allergies, and it turns out that under the influence of salt, both naive T-cells and memory T-cells began to turn into allergic lymphocytes.

    The researchers also found that in patients with atopic dermatitis, in which the skin is chronically inflamed due to some allergic reason, these inflamed, irritated areas contain 30 times more salt than those without inflammation. At the same time, it was not possible to find any increased salinity in the affected skin in patients with psoriasis. But, although psoriasis is considered an autoimmune disorder, it begins with the involvement of a different type of T-helper cells, which apparently do not require salt to activate.

    It can be assumed that the rise in some allergies and autoimmune diseases is associated with changes in our diet over the past few decades. The authors of the work believe that here, first of all, you need to pay attention to fast food, in which quite a lot of salt is usually put. However, salt is not the only thing that can irritate the immune system in fast food: a year ago we wrote that the immune system generally reacts badly to food rich in fats and carbohydrates and poor in plant fiber.

    Soothing Oatmeal Bath – Relieves irritation and soothes the skin

    I love taking baths and am always looking for what can be added to maximize the effect. I found out about the oatmeal bath when one burned down and looked for urgent remedies besides aloe vera.

    I decided to study this issue and found the following information: “Colloidal” oats 1 , which acts as an emollient, soothes and moisturizes dry and irritated skin.Regular oats become emollient when they are crushed into a fine powder, which allows the nutrients to be absorbed more easily by the skin.

    Studies show 2 that colloidal oatmeal strengthens the skin barrier and helps with any damage caused by dryness by filling and moisturizing the skin.

    Even the less drastic FDA 3 approves colloidal oatmeal baths and topical colloidal oatmeal for skin treatments.

    Suitable for:

    • Reducing itching and irritation in eczema, psoriasis
    • dry skin
    • sunburn
    • insect bites

    Suitable for both children and adults.

    Since colloidal oats are not widely sold, we can modify this recipe a little or use finished products.


    We need:

    • oat flakes without additives, large (those that take a long time to cook)
    • blender or coffee grinder
    1. Grind the flakes finely in a blender until a powder is obtained.
    2. Dilute 1 cup of powder in the required amount of warm water until the lumps disappear and a homogeneous consistency is obtained.
    3. Pour the resulting mixture into a bathtub filled with warm water.
    4. Take 15-20 minutes.
    5. Pat dry and apply emollient after bath.

    90,000 Epsom Salt: What Is It And How Is It Used?

    Epsom salt dates back to 1695, when Nehemiah Grew, a doctor of medical sciences from the University of Cambridge, evaporated water from a mineral spring located in the town of Epsom.The substance he received in different countries has acquired its name: epsom, English or bitter salt, as well as bitter earth or magnesia. In chemical terms, it is magnesium sulfate heptahydrate.

    We suggest leaving the use of Epsom salt inside for special enthusiasts. Instead, I want to find out how this substance is used for cosmetic purposes, for weight loss and for the health of athletes.

    Let’s start with the fact that table salt in your kitchen is radically different in composition from English.Regular salt is sodium and chlorine, so it cannot boast of any beneficial properties, unless it is iodized. Outwardly, Epsom salt looks the same – fine white powder or large, odorless crystals, but it tastes more bitter. Store it away from moisture, direct sunlight and high temperatures.

    Epsom salt is better absorbed through the skin than through the gastric tract. The magnesium in its composition absorbs toxins, which are composed of carbon, and then easily removes them from the body.Together with hydrogen sulfide, magnesium produces a rejuvenating effect on the skin. Sulfur strengthens hair and nails, helps joints, fights keratosis, and also removes heavy metals. Magnesium has a positive effect on the work of the heart and blood vessels, relieves muscle tension, and reduces inflammation. Whereas magnesium sulfate eliminates headaches and pains in the back and extremities, and also supports immunity in the fight against colds.

    The easiest way to improve your health is to take an Epsom salt bath.To do this, you need to take warm water and add 2 cups of salt to it, as well as 5-6 drops of your favorite essential oil. The procedure should be repeated 2-3 times a week, while it is important to limit its duration to 15-20 minutes. After that, be sure to rinse under the shower and preferably drink a glass of clean water. Then, ideally, go to bed to maximize the relaxation effect.

    What are the benefits of taking an Epsom salt bath?

    • Increases the level of magnesium in the blood, relieves muscle tension and relieves pain from the limbs;
    • Optimizes fluid balance in the body;
    • Relaxes the nervous system and minimizes the effects of stress;
    • Improves the quality of the skin, and by adding essential oils makes it softer;
    • Stimulates the work of the pancreas;
    • Regulates blood sugar, thereby preventing diabetes mellitus;
    • Helps diabetics feel better, as adequate levels of magnesium and sulfates are responsible for the normal production of insulin;
    • Responsible for the prevention of heart attack and stroke by thinning the blood and preventing clots from forming;
    • With the constant intake of magnesium baths, the elimination of toxins is triggered, which speeds up the process of losing weight.

    In addition, magnesium from Epsom salts stimulates the production of serotonin, which is responsible for good mood but is flushed out by the stress hormone cortisol.

    Also, baths with Epsom salt are considered useful for athletes and people subject to powerful physical exertion, since the substances contained in it increase endurance.

    Other Epsom Salt Treatments

    To make a scrub, take a cup of Epsom salt and mix it with olive oil until a mushy consistency.Such a composition will start increased blood circulation, have an anti-inflammatory effect and also soften rough areas on the body.

    Steam baths for the face can also be made with Epsom salt. They are suitable for cleansing the pores of even sensitive skin and will perfectly even out the complexion. Pour boiling water into a deep bowl, dissolve 2-3 tablespoons of Epsom salts in it, and then lean over the water, just like the good old days over potatoes. And don’t forget to cover your head with a towel or blanket to fully recreate the atmosphere.As a bonus to the nostalgic treatment, you will get a radiant and clear face. After that, be sure to wipe the skin with a toner and apply a gentle cream.

    Important to know about Epsom salt

    Epsom salt is sometimes used to treat constipation, but it should be taken orally very carefully and only after consulting a doctor.

    Also remember that Epsom salt baths should not be taken for skin infections, high intracranial pressure, varicose veins, third degree hypertension and possible allergies.

    Be healthy!

    Good to know about ALLERGY TO SOYA (soya)

    ALLERGY TO SOYA ( soya )

    Useful Information on Soy Allergy – Norwegian Asthmatics and Allergy Association Fact Sheet

    What is food allergy?

    An allergic reaction to food occurs due to the fact that the body reacts to certain types of proteins contained in food. Some people have violent reactions to even the smallest amounts of food they cannot tolerate.In others, the reaction is expressed in malaise, which passes without dramatic consequences. Food allergies are more common in children than adults. For most people, food allergies go away with age. Reactions to multiple foods are not unusual. In the event that foods that are important sources of nutrients are removed from the diet, it is necessary to find good alternatives that will maintain a healthy and varied diet.

    What is soy allergy?

    Soy allergy means that the body reacts to one or more of the proteins found in soybeans.Soybeans are a leguminous plant. From the fruits of leguminous plants, you can get protein, starch, vegetable oil and fiber, which can then be used for cooking.

    In case of soy allergy, a reaction to the Pirque test is usually manifested, and it also manifests itself in the analysis of blood (immunoglobulin antibodies). It should be noted that there are cases of a positive blood test and a Pirquet test for soy allergy, while the body actually tolerates soy. This is due to cross-sensitivity to other legume species or to birch pollen.Some birch pollen allergy sufferers report that they tolerate the presence of salt in processed food, but react to cold soy products such as soy drink and soy yogurt.

    Where is soy protein found?

    Soy protein, which has high nutritional value and numerous functional properties, is used as a component in many food products. For example, soy protein is found in hamburgers, fish cakes, pizza, bread, and other baked goods.Many replacement products for dairy allergy and celiac disease sufferers are based on soy. The reason for this is that soy protein is a good alternative (due to nutritional value and physiological qualities) to milk protein and gluten. Soy is also the main ingredient in soy sauce and foods like miso, tofu, and tempeh.

    What reactions occur with soy allergy?

    The reaction of an allergic person who has consumed a food product containing soy can be different.Examples include loose stools, abdominal pain, asthma attacks, worsening eczema, difficulty breathing, and anaphylactic shock. Birch pollen allergy sufferers who react to cold soy products are most likely to experience gastrointestinal symptoms.

    How is soy allergy treated?

    The only way to combat soy allergy is to completely eliminate soy protein from your diet. Allergy sufferers who only react to cold soy drinks and soy yogurt may generally ignore the presence of soy in mixed foods, as most baked goods, meats, and other soy-based foods are eaten warm.

    What can you eat if you are allergic to soy?

    Soy protein is not found in products made from pure milk, eggs, meat, fish, crustaceans and shellfish, fruits, nuts, vegetable oil or vegetables. However, some people may develop reactions to other leguminous plants like peas, beans, lentils and peanuts, which should be avoided. Soy protein is rare in sweets and chips. Vegetarian and foreign meals, as well as health food, contain soy protein more often than typical Norwegian foods.
