Actually, you had great results! The epsom/water is hard to get down. One thing I've found that makes it easier is, don't refrigerate the epsom/water. The reason being, I'm able, with one huge breath, holding my nose, to drink the entire mixture down using a straw. I do exactly the same thing with the oil/grapefruit mixture. One other tip: I use organic olive oil, and organic grapefruit. The organic oil I find stays down easier than non-organic oil.
