Have you ever bathed in cinnamon? Cinnamon is a warming herb. It has properties that are decongesting, antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal. It relieves muscle spasms and acts as a relaxant, making it a great aid for aches, colds, and congestion.
To make the bath salts
- 1 cup sea salt
- 3 tablespoons cinnamon powder
Pour 1/4 of this mixture into a bathtub full of water. Soak for 20-30 minutes. Why sea salt? Acid can build up in muscle tissue, causing you to feel sore and stiff. Sea salt is alkaline, helping to lower the acidity level of the body. It also stimulates the elimination of toxins, while providing a feast of minerals for the skin! Sea salt contains high concentrations of calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium.
Not only does this salt bath aid in making you feel better, it also relaxes those sore muscles and could be just the comforting thing you need to be on the mend!
