Homemade Muscle Sore Soak

This Homemade Sore Muscle Soak is a wonderful gift idea for anyone you have on your shopping list. Perhaps it would be a nice addition to a homemade spa basket that you could make?

I find that my muscles are sore in the autumn. 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 Muscle Sore Soak

You will need the following supplies:

  • 1 cup of Epsom salt
  • Baking soda, 1 cup
  • 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. Start by mixing baking soda with Epsom Salt in a bowl. Mix well.
  2. Add your herbs to the mixture, chopped finely. Add your oils now. For the mixture you see here, I used fresh mint and used lavender oil in place of the fresh lavender.

  4. Keep the mixture in an airtight container.
