Magnesium flakes vs epsom salts in detox baths?


I’ve been reading here since being approved yesterday, used the search function, but can’t find a definitive answer to my question. So please forgive me if I’m overlooking the obvious (Lymie here with severe brain fog this morning). Is there a reason to use magnesium flakes vs epsom salts in detox baths? I’ve been doing salts, but someone said the flakes were better. I also see the SOLE water recipes mostly use epsom salt. I have plenty of epsom salt on hand and so would obviously like to use that up before buying something else. Just wondering what the difference is as far as treatment. Thanks for any assistance!

  1. Different forms of mag effect people differently. Some like Epsom salt which is mag sulfate and some enjoy mag flakes which is mag chloride. Sole water is not made with epsom salt it is made with Himalayan sea salt.

  2. Thank you, Chris! Like I said, brain fog today. I totally blanked on the himilayan salt in the SOLE. I have that on hand, as well, just need to get the vodka. 🙂

  3. Ok, now I see this recipe says filtered water is fine. Even better!

  4. I think you are thinking of two different products. The recipe I gave above is for Sole water concentrate that uses Sea Salt not Epsom Salt.

  5. I watched a youtube video posted here about making a mineral spray using epsom salt and vodka…. Who knows! I'm overloaded with info at the moment. LOL I will definitely make your Sole recipe. 🙂

  6. When you speak of Vodka I think you want to make Mag A Hol. This uses Mag flakes and Vodka.

  7. That's it. Thanks!

  8. Which is better? I was at whole foods and they had mag soak for 36.00!!!! It was only about 35oz. I think that's too much.

  9. Epsom salts are cheap-cheap. That's why I was wondering too, Mindy. The flakes are so expensive in comparison!

  10. I guess! I know whole foods is overpriced as it is so I wS going to try online somewhere. I'll keep u posted if I find any for cheap 🙂

  11. Mindy I purchased Safe Step 8300 at Costco for $15.00 50lb bag. I only use it for foot baths and Mag A Hol.

  12. Chris, the ice melter?? This is even cheaper than the little bags at the dollar store!

  13. Wow is that Epsom or mag flakes? Is there a difference?

  14. It is Mag Chloride not Epsom salts which is mag sulfate.

  15. Melinda Payne yes the Ice Melter is Mag chloride.

  16. WOW, I never would have even thought of that. THANK YOU!
