Muscle Soreness and Cramps

Soaking in the tub with Epsom salts and baking soda (2 cups Epsom Salt, 1 cup baking soda) can alleviate muscle cramps, as well as soreness from overexertion. The Epsom salts will add magnesium to your body through the skin, which is more effective than taking a supplement by mouth.

Apple cider vinegar can be used in addition to the Epsom salts soaking bath. Place 1/4 to 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar in the Ep som salt soaking bath treatment. The apple cider vinegar will leave the skin feeling soft and smooth, similar to skin softeners and lotions such as lanolin.

Both the Epsom salt soaking bath treatment and the apple cider vinegar addition are also used when you are going to need a lot of extra energy for the next day or when you really feel drained of energy. You can use both as often as you want without harm or problems, as both are nature’s remedies for the above-noted body ailments.
