Epsom Salts

Floating with Epsom Salts

“We use a saturated solution of Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) at a solution density of 1.30 grams per cubic centimeter. This density of solution allows one to float supine and have the whole body at or near the surface of the liquid. One’s hands float, one’s arms, legs, and feet float and, most important, one’s head floats. We have found that even the thinnest person with the least amount of fat floats in this way in the tank. With these simplifications of the technique it has turned out that we have devised a method of attaining the deepest rest that we have ever experienced.” (Dr. John C. Lilly)
