Muscle relief in the tub

Many people receive at least temporary relief from soaking in a warm (not too hot) bath with Epsom salts (or sea salt) or essential oils that are known to soothe sore muscles, such as juniper, lavender, marjoram and/or chamomile. You can add about 8 drops of essential oil to a 2 cup jar of Epsom salts (or sea salt), seal it and leave it for 10 days and then use as you would regular Epsom salts (or sea salt), with the added benefit of a nice scent and whatever therapeutic benefits the oil you chose has to offer.
