The name came from the town of Epsom, England where in 1618 a farmer’s cows refused to drink the local water because of its bitter taste. The farmer also noticed that after applying the water to scratches and rashes they healed quickly. The taste of the water, and the healing powers, proved to be the result of its natural Magnesium Sulfate content. Over time magnesium sulfate has proven to play an important role in soothing muscle aches and pains, exfoliating dead skin cells, relieving sore feet, improving sleep and reducing stress.
Made of minerals magnesium and sulfate, these are all natural ingredients which help improve the health in numerous ways.
