Sore Muscle Epsom Salt Bath

Workout game got you saying "owwwww" everytime you move you sit? squat down? breathe?

Muscle soreness is actually inflammation.  Massages seem to be great when you are sore, but at $75+ a pop, they're expensive.

Most people don't have that money to blow.

However, I suggest investing $30 in a Treat Yo Self Muscle Inflammation Epsom Salt Bath.

It's a soothing, comforting, and relaxing bath that at .99 cents a bath, sure beats the price of a massage.

Treat Yo Self Sore Muscle Epsom Salt Bath with Lavender and Lemongrass

Lavender is known for helping with sleep and reducing stress and anxiety.  Did you also know that it's great for relieving joint and muscle pain and improving blood flow?  Two things you need with muscle soreness and inflammation.

Lemongrass essential oil has so many good benefits for you that I will have to cover them another post.  However, for the purposes of this bath, we are focusing on its analgesic, sedative, and anti-inflammatory properties.

There are a lot of essential oils brands out there.  If I know I'm not going to ingest them, that they're just going to be used topically in the bath, I skip my pricey DoTerra oils and use Thrive Market's Lemongrass and Lavender.

They are still organic and non-GMO so I feel at ease with exposing them to my skin.  They're also half the price of DoTerra and if you add them to your other purchases...free shipping.


The Aromatherapy standard for drops is approximately 20 drops per mL of essential oil, of course, this all depends on the thickness of an oil.

For the Lavender Essential Oil 50mL bottle, you are looking at 1,000 drops a bottle. 5 drops a bath equals 200 baths...not bad for $17.85.  That's .10 cents a bath!

So let's break everything down.

Garden Tub   $ .99 cents a bath!
5 drops of Lavender $ .10
3 drops of Lemongrass $ .06
2 cups of Epsom Salt $ .83

Standard Tub $. 49 cents a bath!
3 drops of Lavender $ .06
1 drop of Lemongrass $ .02
1 cup of Epson Salt $ .41
