Dollar Tree Epsom Salt is it worth it how to use epsom salt natural health garden solution hi it’s AlaskaGranny Alaska Prepper I’ve been to the Dollar Tree and guess what they have epsom salt for a dollar for a pound
are you wondering could the Epsom salt from the Dollar Tree actually be safe
could it be any good is it the same and the answer is yes epsom salts are magnesium sulfate
and they are highly regulated by the FDA or the Federal Drug Administration if
you look on the back of the package of Epsom Salt you will see the guidelines as long as
there’s a health type guideline on the back you know that this product is regulated like a drug it states drug facts
which means it’s going to be safe there are actually two types of
Epsom salt or magnesium sulfate there’s the kind of Epsom salt that you find in the food and drug stores and then there are some Epsom salts that you would find in say a farm store or a
feed store the Epsom salts that are safe for you to use for your body are the ones
that you would find in the food store the grocery store or the drugstore
that’s why they sell it in the drug and the medicine type department if you look
over different packages of Epsom salt you’ll see that they’re all going to
have that same kind of a fact information drug facts on the back of the package because they’re basically made out of the same ingredient you can find Epsom
salt at all kinds of price points but it’s actually perfectly fine to buy it
at the Dollar Tree there are all kinds of Epsom salt packages that are
available whether you’re in the store or even go shopping to something like Amazon but if you actually compare the price of the Epsom Salt they’re generally more than $1 a pound

  2. I LOVE 💖💖💖 your channel!!!! You always have wonderful ideas and tips ….. I absolutely love how you explain things. You don't make it complicated, you make it achievable! Most everybody doesn't have a lot of money to spend on things. Can I have your autograph ☺️

  3. Granny some really great ideas for Epsom salt. I would have thought it would kill plants. Thank you again wonderful, beautiful, lady

  4. Unfortunately FDA doesn't mean safe. Not saying this isn't, but remember that everything the FDA bans was once approved by the FDA. Not to mention pay offs by drug companies. Be careful out there. Great video Granny! Thanks!

  5. Thank you for the info. It’s great stuff. I hadn’t seen it at Dollar Tree will keep a look out for it.
    Thanks again. God bless.

  6. I love the Eucalyptus Epsom salts or the lavender ones for a nice bath. I add a crushed potassium tablet. It helps ridthe body of toxins and great for pain relief.
