The Eco Bath Bath Soak

16 June 2015

In the past few years I've really got into having baths, I'm really working on getting my tension and stress levels down and learning to relax- something that doesn't come that easily to me.
Not only do i find them a way to mentally relax and switch off, but also I've been using them to relax my muscles and body for a bit of a refresh, reboot and generally TLC.

I've been playing about with a few soaks, oils and salts but nothing really grabbed me until I got myself a big tube of this Muscle & Joint Pain Epsom Salt Bath Soak from The Eco Bath.
Now I've used epsom salt a lot in the past, they are a strong memory from my childhood, but what makes this one special is that it is infused with essential oils including Lemongrass (Cymbopogon Citratus), Ecalyputus (Eucalyptus Globus), Peppermint (Mentha Piperita) and Black Pepper (Piper Nigrum). Potent and beautifully fragrant stuff!

I find this works wonders on both my mind and body. Using this really does help me relax in all ways, the fragrance is calming but 'peps' you up at the same time. I often find my mind's a lot clearer and my thoughts more rational and easier to form after soaking in this. My muscles also are definitely soothed and it's been fabulous on my knees after a work out! If I've got a fair few bruises a good few soaks of this really does help reduce the swelling, colour and tenderness for me.
What's more I find this stellar at helping with my period when my cramps and back ache are getting too much. I hate and avoid painkillers at all costs so this is a lovely alternative and I personally find it very effective- the warm water obviously helps too but the magnesium in epsom salts is proven to be effective for this! It's also very good if I've been having trouble with leg cramps!

On top of that I would recommend using this if you have the flu or a cold to everyone! A few months ago I had the worse flu I've ever had in my life! I was knocked out for over a week and was literally at the point where I thought my bones were breaking inside and I was so physically and mentally exhausted I would just lay on the floor not being able to move. I would climb into a warm bath with a generous scoop of this and it would rapidly soothe a good portion of my muscle (whole bloody body!) ache. I was still in pain but it provide a great amount of relief. The scent of the essential oils also helped improve my breathing and clear my sinuses so i could breathe easier which in turn helped with my headaches.

This 1000g tube was about £8.50(ish) in Holland & Barrett so it is by no means cheap but I would purchase this over and over again! And you do get loads and it lasts a while even when like me you use very 'generous' scoops to your bath!
