About seven years ago, I started experiencing extreme muscle and joint pain.  At the time, I had three kids, two of which were preschoolers.  By the time I put them to bed, I was in so much pain that I couldn't even sleep.  I went to the doctor and got tests done.  I had a lot of inflammation in my body, and I was eventually diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia.  The doctor gave me prescription pain medications, but I couldn't take them with my kids being so little.  I took anti-inflammatory medications, but they upset my stomach.  I started researching natural ways to relieve my pain, which is when I found Curamin® Stop Pain Now.  Keep reading for more information about Curamin® and my sore muscle bath salt recipe.

When the pain started, I was a stay at home mom and didn't work outside of the home or in the home.  A few years later, when my husband battled an illness that lasted more than three years, I had no choice but to resume working.  However, I wasn't able to sit or stand for long periods of time because of the pain.  That's how I became a freelance writer and later a blogger.

I've been able to manage my pain with diet, exercise, and using natural remedies, but I still know my limits.  I still can't sit or stand for too long or the pain will come back.  I have a home office and an office outside of the home so I can have quiet time to work.  No matter where I am, I have to alternate between sitting and standing so my joints don't lock up.  

Curamin® Extra Strength 

Curamin® Extra Strength 60 count is an award winning pain relief product that has ingredients that were selected just for pain relief.  Curamin® is the #1 selling brand, and it's a non-addictive and safe herbal formula.  Its a different kind of pain relief because it doesn't mask your pain; it stops your pain at the source.  

Curamin® is available at health food stores nationwide.  I buy mine at Wooster Natural Foods, which is a small, local company.  I like shopping there because the employees are knowledgeable, and they always give me great advice for products.  Check out the store locator to find a retailer near you.

Sore Muscle Bath Salt Recipe

Even though this is an easy bath salt recipe with just 4 ingredients, I carefully selected each ingredient for its unique properties for my sore muscle bath salt recipe.  I use Epsom salt because it's high in magnesium, which can help ease muscle pain.  Sweet almond oil has mild anti-inflammatory properties.  Peppermint essential oil is said to help relieve muscle pain and is soothing.  Rosemary essential oil is said to be good for stiff and tired muscles.  Do not use rosemary essential oil if you have high blood pressure or epilepsy.  

What You'll Need

  • 3 cups Epsom salts
  • 1 tablespoon carrier oil (I used sweet almond oil, but you could also use grapeseed oil)
  • 6 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 6 drops rosemary essential oil


Measure out 3 cups of Epsom salts and place in a plastic or glass bowl.  Don't use metal because the essential oils could react with the metal.

Add the carrier oil and essential oils.  Stir well with a wooden spoon.  Again, don't use metal with essential oils.

To use, add 1 to 2 cups sore muscle bath salts to a warm bath and soak for 20 minutes.
