J - the yuckiness of epsoms is from the bitterness. Sweetness counteracts bitterness very well. Have a piece of candied ginger or a breath mint, something sweet on hand to pop in your mouth right after swallowing the epsoms. I like to rinse my mouth with plain water first. Also, I take the epsoms with 1/4 cup water vice 3/4 cup and then drink extra plain water. The 1/4 cup only requires ONE swallow so that nasty bitterness isn't in your mouth as long.
