For sore, stiff muscles, Jo recommends a hot bath with a couple of handfuls of Epson Salts and Essential Oils. Her three big favorites, with anti-inflammatory, balancing, relaxing & healing qualities are:
Add 10 drop of each to the bath.
Soak & Enjoy!
Using the same amounts as above add to 50ml of a base oil, i.e. sweet almond, grapeseed, sunflower, jojoba, or olive oil. Mix well and massage a tablespoon into effected areas as needed. Soothes and relieves pain & tightness.
Essential oils can provide wonderful relief from chronic pain. They penetrate deeply into the muscle tissues, encouraging contracted muscles to expand; they increase blood flow to the area, and allow torn fibrous tissues to be repaired by the body.
