When it comes to external use of Epsom salt for health reasons, the most common recommendation is to soak the entire body in warm water containing one to two cups of Epsom salt for at least 20 minutes. A half-cup of Epsom salt can also be added to a large pan of warm water for a 20-minute foot bath.
For internal use of Epsom salt, follow the guidelines on the packaging or consult your physician.
Never use a higher dose of Epsom salt than what is recommended on the package label or as your doctor has directed. Magnesium sulfate taken orally can make it harder for your body to absorb other medications you take by mouth, especially antibiotics. Avoid taking other medicines within two hours before or after you take magnesium sulfate as a laxative. If you have rectal bleeding or if you do not have a bowel movement after using magnesium sulfate as a laxative, stop using the medication and call your doctor at once. These may be signs of a more serious condition.
Epsom salt can also be used for household cleaning. To clean tile and grout, mix equal parts of liquid dish soap and Epsom salt and apply this mixture to dirty and/or stained surfaces anywhere in your home. Allow the mixture to soak in for a couple of minutes, scrub away the loosened filth and rinse clean.
It's better to consult your health practitioner for recommended usage.
