How to Take an Epsom Salt Bath
The water should be very warm -- not hot, but comfortable to the touch. Add the Epsom salt while the water is running to help it dissolve. For a standard-sized tub, use the amount suggested on the package, usually 1 to 2 cups, or the amount recommended by your doctor.
Don't use Epsom salt in a hot tub, whirlpool, or other tub with jets unless the manufacturer says it's OK.Keep the part of your body that hurts in the water for at least 12 minutes. Just relax.I'm a product description.
