Healing Salt

I was led into looking for an alternative cure to flatulence or gas pains because my mother used to suffer from it often .  I would put a warm compress soaked in Epsom Salt on her stomach and was surprised that she said she was feeling better after a while.

When my problematic feet start acting up, I look forward to my ' home spa'  treatment. I put half a cup of Epsom Salt in a basin of  warm water , and immerse my feet in it for as long as I can. I  am relieved of the pain and my feet feel brand new.

Epsom Salt is magnesium sulfate and it is supposed to be a ' sedative for aches , pains and the nervous system . It has a lot of uses both for wellness and beauty.

It is one product that I always keep in my house because of all of it's  healing benefits . I just make sure that my helper doesn't use it for cooking. Although, I know that it may be taken as a laxative too!

Hi ma'am!

I've been a follower since day 1 and all of your home-made remedies are quite awesome.

I was wondering if you could help me with a small dilemma. I have a leather and pleather hand bag that is stained with ink, I don't know how it got there but I couldn't remove it with alcohol or detergent. I was hoping you know a quick remedy to my problem.

Thank you so much! :)

Thank you.
