Yes, age can cause us to acquire more daily aches and pains. When we push ourselves past our limits at work, we can also come home feeling achy. Finally, that new workout that promises to help us lose those last five pounds can certainly add new aches and pains in our body. What is a simple and easy way to relieve some of those pains? One way is to take a nice warm bath in Epsom Salt.
Yes, this is the very stuff your mother and grandmother may use. They use it because it works. They also may use it because it doesn’t break their budget.
The main ingredient in Epsom Salt is magnesium. This is why it can help reduce one’s pain. When one soak’s their body into a mixture of water and Epsom Salt, the magnesium will soak into the joints and muscles of the body. This will help these areas to relax. Once they start to relax they will become looser. This will cause the stuffiness to go out of the body. This will also begin to eliminate one’s aches and pains.
All you have to do is pour a little bit of the Epsom Salt into your bath water and relax. That is it. Of course, if you wish for the water to smell a bit better, you can also add a few drops of your favorite relaxing essential oil, too. A great one to consider adding is lavender. It has a relaxing effect on the body. For this reason, it can work in combination with the Epsom salt.
Of course, the salt mixture is easy to purchase. One can find it in the health aisle at their local department store and at all pharmacies. Plus, it usually sells for $3.00 or under per box.
