I always dissolve the ES(1tbls at a time)in a little warm water and add 1/2 a cup of freshly juiced apple with a dash of lemon.I find this a lot more palatable than downing the ES in just water....I just can't do it with plain water and the ES works just fine.
I just took my first dose of epsoms ever. I am only taking it now to flush the colon, so I only put 2 tsp in a glass. It also suggested squeezing fresh lemon into it. I did and can't taste the epsom at all. I took a sip before and it tasted nasty!!
