Pain Relief – Bath Tub Style

Is there anything more soothing than a hot bath? Especially on rainy or snowy evenings, a warm bath can become a sanctuary. A calming wave. A fresh start.

In the hygiene area of stores, you’ll find all kinds of bath soaps filled with chemicals, synthetics, and fragrances – which is awful for anyone with chronic illness.

If you’re looking to alleviate pain and find a calming solution in a natural form… then my recipe for relief can help. Please keep in mind, everyone is different and I urge you to try several other solutions to help reduce pain.


What You Need:

  1. Lavender essential oil
  2. Rosemary essential oil
  3. Himalayan pink salt or Epsom salt
  4. A measuring cup
  5. Water
  6. Sore muscles


  • Start by drawing a bath and find the optimal temperature.
  • When the water begins to fill, add 1/4 cup of Himalayan pink salt or Epsom salt to the water. It will need time to dissolve in the hot water.
  • Then, add 4-6 drops of lavender oil. I’ve found that essential oils can add another element of relaxation.
  • Finally, 6-8 drops of rosemary oil offers sustenance to your sore muscles.
  • You may also add in bubbles if you prefer. I use a natural soap from the allergy-free store.
  • Once the water is full, use your hand to mix the oils and salts. Then, slide in and enjoy the sweet serenity.
