Who knew?! You’ll need to get some mason jars with good seals – and you can just run a regular cleaning load with these in the top rack… Genius way to save energy!
This would make for a great historical project for school or scouts.

1)Add some to the bath for a relaxing soak for soar muscles. I think this is probably the most common use.
2)On itchy skin or for bug bites: Dissolve a tablespoon of epsom salt in 1/2 cup of water, let it cool, and then spritz it on itchy skin or soak a cloth in it to make a soothing compress.
3)In the garden: Adding a few bags to the soil before planting can help replenish the magnesium levels in the soil, which have been depleted due to over-farming.

PaintItBlack says,”Got the Union Products cauldren at a rummage sale for 50 cents, dollar store knee socks $1 and spanish moss $1, yard sale shoes .50, broom $1.50. Used an old pool noodle for legs and some scrap foam inside the cauldren. Also used some dollar store bamboo sticks $1 to stick inside the pool noodles and into the foam in the cauldren. Threw some rocks into the bottom of the cauldren before the foam, to stabilize the whole thing. Total cost was a whopping $5.50, and I am pleased with the result. I will probably display this on the front porch this season.”
