I love Epsom Salt
baths!!! I use them during PMS, and notice that i no longer crave chocolate afterwards!
MH over at the Barefoot Herbalist forum mentioned that it's because the body soaks up a certain degree of Magnesium from the baths (especially if the water is hot)
Magnesium is a calming sedative mineral- and this probably explains why I feel as though I just got a total body massage and am cuddled in a puffy cloud pillow after one of these baths.
