epsom salt for inflammation and soreness

i have been mixing 1 cup of epsom salt (and baking soda) with 1-2 gallons of hot water, applying a towel to sore/inflamed areas and it has been doing some good in my flaring knee and sore muscles.  Great way imo to recover from training.  Anyone else use this, let me know what you think/how you feel.

the science behind it is that our bodies are usually a bit magnesium depleted, and magnesium helps stop inflammation.

Try to inhale epsom baths - they'll turn you into a zombie.
