Aches and pains are just a natural part of life- from working out, gardening, moving furniture, lifting up our babies, or other everyday activities. It interrupts your day and often keeps you from doing what needs to get done, but it doesn’t always have to. Minor aches and sometimes even more troublesome pains can be alleviated using this all-natural Herbal Muscle Soak!

Simple ingredients that you are likely to already have on hand can help loosen joints, relax muscles, and chase away pain in this sore muscle bath soak. Of course I included my favorite essential oils, as they are good for everything from freshening up the smell of your home to cleaning your produce!
Herbal Muscle Soak
This makes enough for about 3 baths.
2 cups Epsom salt
¼ cup coarse sea salt
1 cup baking soda
5 drops peppermint essential oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops eucalyptus essential oil
While you are gathering your ingredients, go ahead and pull out:
A large mixing bowl
Jar(s) with a lid(s)
1. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. I like to mix mine well with a whisk as it seems to incorporate everything very well.
2. Once your mixture is ready, transfer it to a jar with a tight fitting lid.
Add 1 heaping cup of your herbal muscle soak to your bathtub under warm running water.
Note: While essential oils can be very helpful, if you are having serious health issues, don’t rely on them- see a doctor instead.

I often use epsom salt soaks to relax and detox at night…especially in winter when the warm water feel wonderful. Thanks for sharing at Welcome Home Wednesdays. We love seeing your posts!
