WHAT DOES EPSOM SALTS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Epsom salts

Magnesium sulfate

Magnesium sulfate is an inorganic salt containing magnesium, sulfur and oxygen, with the formula MgSO4. It is often encountered as the heptahydrate sulfate mineral epsomite, commonly called Epsom salt, taking its name from a bitter saline spring in Epsom in Surrey, England, where the salt was produced from the springs that arise where the porous chalk of the North Downs meets non-porous London clay. The monohydrate, MgSO4·H2O is found as the mineral kieserite. The overall global annual usage in the mid 1970s of the monohydrate was 2.3 million tons, of which the majority was used in agriculture. Anhydrous magnesium sulfate is used as a drying agent. The anhydrous form is hygroscopic and is therefore difficult to weigh accurately; the hydrate is often preferred when preparing solutions. Epsom salt has been traditionally used as a component of bath salts. Epsom salt can also be used as a beauty product. Athletes use it to soothe sore muscles, while gardeners use it to improve crops. It has a variety of other uses. Epsom Salts are also effective in the removal of splinters.
