A lot of people find an escape in screens. Most of us are guilty of bowing our heads to glowing smartphones and marathoning movies or TV shows. Since I make a living staring at a computer monitor all day, the last thing I want to do is find solace in another screen after work.
I’m here to tell you that the bathtub is the perfect place to decompress. If you want to make the most of your bath, consider adding in some Epsom salts. Tree Hut’s Shea Moisturizing Epsom Salts — specifically in the Coconut Lime scent — are the best I’ve come across.
Tuesday is leg day for me, so I’m sore most Wednesdays. Pouring in one or two cups of this epsom salt in a warm bath is my saving grace. Epsom salt is clinically proven to help relax muscles and alleviate pain, and the magnesium in them also has the potential to help relieve headaches. I suffer from frequent headaches and can vouch for their effectiveness on that front.
Before I discovered Tree Hut’s soothing salts, I’d buy a generic 8-pound bag of epsom salts from Walgreens. Sure, it was cheap and got the job done as far as relieving my achy muscles — but didn’t do much else besides dry out my skin.
