Epsom=Jetsam: Quote: " As an ideal means of relieving stress at the end of a hard day, two cups of Epsom salts in a tub of hot water can help to soothe jangled nerves and restore a sense of well being."-- I suspect the Epsom Salts will be doing the same for the yeast. In other words, when you get out of your relaxing bath, use a medication recommended by your doctor or pharmacist.
