The "bath salts" that have been tested positive for having a similar molecular makeup as ecstasy and methamphetamine are not actual Epsom salts. What's happening is that these fake bath salts are being marketed as Epsom salt-like concoctions so that they are harder for the legal authorities to track down. People who are ingesting these salts are experiencing psychological symptoms like paranoia, delusions, and panic attacks, while the physical symptoms include chest pains, sweating, nausea, nosebleeds, and vomiting. Make sure if you buy bath salts that the packaging is legitimately labeled with "Epsom salts" or "bath salts" and is from a reputable bath, body, or drug store.
Epsom salts, however, are amazing. Find out what the miracle ingredient in Epsom salts is that make them so powerful, and learn to create the perfect Epsom salts bath.
Sure, I'm well aware of the tub of Epsom salts remedy for those aching dogs (read: feet), but you can take that saying literally! Thanks to Fully Vetted, I've got a new idea to treat North's feet.Just as mixing one cup of Epsom salts into a couple quarts of comfortably warm water relaxes you, you can also stand a dog in the same mixture to help soothe his paws, too. This product works when the Magnesium sulfate (as it's also called) is absorbed into the skin and dehydrates the swollen spots. It also helps to sooth muscle pains and improve rough patches in the skin. Could this treat your pets after too much frolicking over the long weekend?
