Do you mean that you rub the epsom salts on your moistened skin rather than taking a bath with the salts?
I do take baths with it, but yes, I use it directly on my skin. I made an ointment of epsom salts arnica oil and bees wax, ()not entirley successful because the epsom doesn't dissolve in oil). But if I moisten my skin, the epsom dissolves and the arnica absorbs and it works really well for me.
