Epsom salts - In water, it breaks down into magnesium and sulfate. When you soak in an Epsom salt bath, these get into your body through your skin. Just soaking in the salt warm water can help relax muscles and loosen stiff joints. This can sooth sore muscles after working out
European sea salt - Pure and pristine, European Sea Salts are harvested from the Mediterranean Sea, by using ancient methods of solar evaporation. The area from which this salt is harvested, is free of pollution and has very high evaporation rates, which make this salt ultra pure. This salt contains elements of Iodine, Fluorine, Magnesium and Potassium, which make it a perfect soaking option for soothing painful, achy muscles.
A few hours after your workout, slide into a warm bath to soothe your muscles.
After a hard run or a tough lifting session at the gym, your muscles may be screaming for a warm, soothing bath. Unfortunately, a warm bath right after a workout is not good for sore muscles. Directly after your workout, you should go for an ice bath. A few hours later, then it is time to slide into a warm bath. Adding salt + herbs may help further soothe sore muscles, I picked the perfect balance.
Immediately After Exercise
If you just did something intense, such as running a marathon, it is best to delay your bath. While a bath may sound luxurious and enticing to your sore muscles, it can actually increase swelling and soreness right after or within the first few hours after your workout.
Cold, Not Warm
There is no doubt that a warm bath sounds appealing, but your muscles actually need cold temperatures directly after exercising. A study published by the “Cochrane Library“ in 2012 showed that cold-water baths improved muscle recovery and reduced fatigue in participants immediately following a workout. Participants who immersed themselves in water colder than 59 degrees Fahrenheit saw a 20 percent reduction in soreness compared to passive treatment. If you have a heart condition or another heath problem, consult a doctor before doing an ice bath.
If it has been a few hours since you worked out and your muscles are still sore my salt blend will restore your balance. When you work out, your body loses magnesium and increases adrenaline levels. When you mix Epsom salt and European salt with warm water, it dissolves and is then absorbed through your skin to help replenish your magnesium levels, ease pain, relieve inflammation and ease the effects of adrenaline.
Adding herbs to your bath transforms it into an elegant, pampering muscle relaxer. My combination works specifically to help worn muscles recovery.
