Soaking Away The Pain

on April 28, 2016

I love baths and it was one of the non-negotiables when it came to buying a new flat, it had to have a bath. It’s great me time with a cup of herbal tea, glass of wine or smoothie depending on my mood and how long I have. I also am a big fan of setting up my ipad with a tv programme and watching it while soaking away the stress.

When I was at Omassim one of the things that the masseuse suggested for helping with joint and muscle pain was epsom salts. When I visited my lovely dentist last week and told her about my hip, she also suggested epsom salt baths and she said that Radox did a product that she used as it smelled really nice. After two suggestions of using bath salts I figured I’d give it a try.

I got a box from Boots as I had enough points to get the free and I generally like to spend my points on a little treat or something different. They make the bath really blue and you don’t need that much so even though the box wasn’t as big as I thought it would be, it’ll still do at least three or four baths.

I really liked the smell and it helped me relax and wind down. Also because of the salt it helped exfoliate my skin which it really needed. I’m not sure the effects on my muscles and joints as I find that having a bath without salts also helps that.

It’s a nice additional to the bath so I’m considering if I order the set of 6 boxes from Amazon but I’m not quite sure where I’d store it all as I don’t think it’d be a good idea to store it in my bathroom.
