Homemade Sore-Muscle Soak

I think that this homemade Sore Muscle Soak is a wonderful gift to give someone you know! Maybe it’s a good addition to your own spa basket?

In the fall, I usually have sore muscles. I think it’s because we’re out hiking more and working outside more. 🙂  Because of this, I find it really nice to have a warm bath with some of my homemade sore muscle soak!  This is a delicious-smelling soak because it contains fresh mint and lavender.  Here’s how you can easily make up your own batch of homemade sore muscle soak:

Homemade Sore-Muscle Soak


  • 1 cup of Epsom salt
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • ¼ cup of fresh mint leaves, chopped OR 7-10 drops of Peppermint oil
  • ¼ cup of fresh lavender, chopped OR 7-10 drops of Lavender oil


  1. Mix baking soda and Epsom salt in a large bowl. Mix well.
  2. Add your herbs to the mixture, chopped finely. You can also add the oils at this point. For the mixture you see here, I used fresh mint and used lavender oil in place of the fresh lavender.
  3. Continue mixing. Some clumping may occur due to the oils and herbs releasing moisture. It isn’t a big problem. Use your spoon to break up the clumps.
  4. Keep the mixture in an airtight container.
