It is one of the richest oils available and is ideal for dry or mature skin. It has emollient properties which means it makes your skin soft and supple. When blended into skin care products, it creates a rich creamy texture which feels amazing. It also contains fatty acids, which improve skin moisture retention and elasticity and is effective in easing skin problems such as eczema or psoriasis. It can clog pores so it's better to use a little less or avoid using on the face if you have acne prone or sensitive skin. It is edible and because it is pure, natural cocoa, smells like chocolate!

Epsom Salts do wonders for sore muscles. Espom salts are a natural magnesium salt. In water, it breaks down into magnesium and sulfate. The theory is that when you soak in an epsom salt bath, these get into your body through your skin. That hasn't been proven, but just soaking in warm water can help relax muscles and loosen stiff joints.
People use epsom salt baths as a home treatment for: arthritis pain and swelling, bruises and sprains, fibromyalgia (a condition that makes your muscles, ligaments, and tendons hurt, and causes tender points throughout your body), Ingrown toenails, Insomnia, psoriasis, sore muscles after working out, sunburn pain and redness, tired, swollen feet. For a muscle soak bath, use 1-2 cups of epsom salts in very warm water. (source: WebMD)
