Other Epsom Salt Uses and Benefits
You do not need to soak in a tub to experience the benefits of Epsom salts. Use them to whiten your teeth and improve mouth health by brushing your teeth or gargling with a mixture of Epsom salt and water.

You can also combine Epsom salt with your natural conditioner to thicken hair, add volume, soften hair or treat a dry scalp.
