3 Quick Ways to Soothe Sore Muscles

Epsom Salts

 

Sore muscles always seem to creep up on me. Then when I realize it I really need R&R. These are three of my favorite things to do for my sore muscles.

 

1 – Take an Epsom Salt Bath
2 cups in a full tub of warm water is a great way to relax those tender muscles, and Epsom salts are available almost anywhere. Best of all it’s affordable

2 – Lavender Oil
I did an article a while ago about lavender oil and I still think it’s the best for relaxing and soothing sore/tight muscles. Works great to put it on before bed.

3 – Arnica Gel or Pellets
This works wonders and is also great if you’re bruised (just don’t put the gel on broken skin). It helps you recover faster.

I would love to hear any tips or tricks you have for loosening up sore muscles, so leave a comment!
