After not working out for over a year, I decided to kick-start my exercise routine and joined a 6 week CrossFit challenge. While this was a great experience overall, it came with the nasty side effect of massive soreness. One of the coaches recommended epsom salt as a way to ease soreness and muscle tension. I am so glad I listened! Using this epsom salt in a bath after working out made a significant difference for me. It helped ease the soreness so I could continue living my life as normal instead of struggling to walk up the stairs because of the pain. The added benefit here is the super relaxing Lavender scent! I don't even really like Lavender, but this smells heavenly and helped me relax at the end of the day. Not sure if it was just the scent or the exhaustion from my workout routine, but it definitely helped me fall asleep. I also like the velcro closure- makes it easy to reseal between uses without needing to use a clip.
Is this significantly better epsom salt than the bargain store brand? Not sure, but I feel better about the quality of ingredients because of the reputation of the Dr Teal brand. When you're naked in a bath, that kind of thing matters in my opinion.
Does it smell way better than the bargain store brand? Absolutely.
