Epsom Salts
Epsom salts are a magnesium based salt and plants absorb it to use the magnesium as a 'building block' for chlorophyll - the green pigment in leaves which allows the plant to use photosynthesis to produce sugars (and oxygen) from a chemical reaction between water and carbon dioxide with sunlight providing the 'power'
Small doses of epsom salt therefore enhances the plants efficiency - but too much can cause the leaves to yellow and the plant becomes less efficient and dies.
So be careful how much you use!!!

In the bath at night is also recommended for helping hyper children to sleep, as well as helping with minor digestive problems.
