Epsom salt bathNaturopathy
A bath taken in hot water, into which 1–2 kg of Epsom salts are dissolved. It has been recommended that the water be as hot as can be reasonably borne by the patient, and ideally of 20 minutes in duration; such baths are believed by their advocates to be both cleansing and antispasmodic.
