Bath Recipe for Muscle Pain Relief

Posted on August 13, 2012 at 5:21 PM
There are many 'detox' bath recipes out there on the web, sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming.  However, it is not hard to make a healing and luxurious bath with ingredients you may already have at home.

This particular recipe can help with muscle aches, pains, spasms, and help relieve post-workout soreness.

Detox Bath Recipe:
1/3-2c  Epsom Salt
1/3-2c  Baking Soda
1/3-2c  Sea Salt
5 TBSP Ground Ginger
1/2-2c  Apple Cider Vinegar (organic is best)

Combine dry ingredients, storing in a closed container.  At bath time add the apple cider vinegar to hot running water. 
*Optional: Add 8-12 drops of essential oil.  Soak 15-30 for optimal healing.  Make sure to stay hydrated with cold drinking water during bath. 

*Some of my favorite essential oils to use for muscle relief are
-Eucalyptus
-Lavender
-Peppermint
-Rosemary
-Thyme

Benefits:
-Epsom salt's magnesium content helps to draw impurities from the body, relieves muscle aches and pains, disperses essential oils.
-Baking soda balances an over acidic system, refreshing, energizing, and softening the skin.
-Sea salt soothes, healing open pores and blemishes.
-Ground ginger increases circulation.
-Apple Cider Vinegar soothes and softens the skin, and raises alkalinity in the body.

These baths may be taken for muscle relief or anytime you feel the need to relax, calm the mind and body.  Of course, these baths feel especially healing after a good massage!

Caution: Do not take hot salt baths if you have heart trouble, high or low blood pressure, or are diabetic.
