Herbal Sore Muscle Bath Soak for Soothing Muscle Pain Relief

One of the joys of getting old (ish!) is that I tend to hurt myself a lot easier than I did when I was young.  Being an active, middle aged woman, that means I am nursing sore muscles on a regular basis.  This herbal sore muscle bath soak will help me soothe away a few more of my aches and pains. Last week, my husband and I tackled a hot power yoga class which was incredibly challenging.  Then, the next day, I went for a 3-mile run.  And 2 days later I hit the gym.  Yes, I was feeling ambitious last week but I was also REALLY sore by the time Friday rolled around!  If you need a little bit of muscle pain relief occasionally, this combination of bath salts and anti-inflammatory herbs may be just the thing you need!

Epsom salt baths are incredibly popular for muscle pain relief but you can add numerous things to them to increase the effectiveness of your sore muscle bath soak.  Check out Annies Remedies for the medicinal properties of common herbs.  I chose an assortment of herbs based on what I had dried from my garden and what I found on Amazon that I knew I could use for other projects.  I will include the recipe I followed, as well as links to purchase ingredients you may need.  Some you can find at your local grocery store but others will probably need to be purchased online.

Sore Muscle Bath Soak with Fresh Herbs is the Perfect Sore Muscle Relief!

One thing to keep in mind if you are using fresh herbs in your bathtub is to put them into empty tea bags to make clean up easier.  You can use small cloth tea bags or disposable paper tea bags, whichever you prefer.  Just make up a big batch of this sore muscle bath soak and keep it by the bathtub with your box of tea bags.  Include a small wooden scoop with it.   When you want to take a bath, just fill a bag and toss it into the tub.  No herbs stuck to your skin and cleaning the tub is easy!

I love soaking away my aches and pains with a sore muscle soak like this one.  Recovery from a workout definitely takes me a little bit longer now that I am in my 40s! I remember those days of my youth when I could hike for a whole weekend and never need any muscle pain relief when I got home.  Ah, the good old days of youth, right?But, I’m not going to let age stop me from working out!  And with pretty smelling herbal bath salts like this one, I don’t need to!
