Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate. This is a common way to provide extra sulfur the the plant. Magnesium isn't very effective unless it is paired with calcium.
There is no harm in using this, but I prefer using dolomitic lime, and iron sulfate to achieve the same results. This mixture can be taken up faster, and condition the soil at the same time.
