there is a site on here called baths or something like that it explains recipes if you look throught the log. um. the epson salts draw out impurites and toxins from your skin. it is really helpful and so good for you. at the bottom of the list of forums there is an alphabet you hit on the letter B and it will list all the forums that start with B and you can find it that way. i highly reccomend you do one. many actually. i think it was southren bell who had good info on her's . myself i just dump a pint like container in as hot of water as i can stand and relax. i am interested in the proxide baths though. hope this helps.
