DIY Body Scrub For Sore Muscles (And A Giveaway!)

DIY Body Scrub for Sore Muscles
I am officially starting Week 3 of the BBG! Honestly, I cannot believe how quickly the time is going, but I have the sore muscles to prove it. They yell at me on a daily basis—especially the ones in my glutes. Oy!

Next week I will be posting my Week 4 progress pictures, but in the meantime, I wanted to share with you my body scrub I have been using to rehabilitate from all of those burpees and mountain climbers, AKA workouts from hell. No pain, no gain, right?

DIY Body Scrub for Sore Muscles
I have been using the bath salt crystals from Relax Spa and Bath to soak after a hard workout (which has been pretty much every single day since starting my fitness journey). The one pictured is their Recover crystals from their range of salts specifically made for athletic soak therapy.

DIY Body Scrub for Sore Muscles

To make the body scrub, simply add 2 tablespoons of bath crystals and about 1 teaspoon of water to a small container and mix it into a paste. Draw yourself a steamy, warm bath and scrub yourself down in all those achy places. As you soak for a few minutes, it starts to tingle all over and the relief is A-MAZING.

Aromatherapy Bath Crystals Giveaway You lucky ducks get to enter to win a pack of eight of their aromatherapy crystals! The salts are all-natural and contain a mixture of Dead Sea salt, epsom salt, essentials oils, anti-inflammatories, vitamins, and minerals. I like to use mine in the bath because they help pull out all of those yucky toxins and moisturize my skin, but you can use them in a humidifier or in the laundry too! So many good uses and the scents are delicious.

This eight-pack includes (from left to right in the picture):
  • Tropical Rain to refresh
  • Dream Love Potion to set the mood, if you know what I mean... 
  • Recover for sore muscles (the one I used above and absolutely recommend)
  • Verbena Lime Coconut to awaken the senses
  • Warm French Vanilla for a comforting soak
  • Green Tea to invigorate
  • Eucalyptus Mint to stimulate (it smells so good and is awesome in the humidifier to clear out congestion!)
  • Lavender Palmarosa to calm and relax
Don't you just want to go light some candles and take a nice, long soak in the tub now? I do! I use these as a reward for doing my daily workouts. My inner dialogue sounds something like this... Abbey, 20 more minutes and you get to take an aromatherapy bath! Lavender Palmarosa is just around the bend! Ten more lunges and it's Warm French Vanilla time!

A fit girl's gotta do what a fit girl's gotta do to stay motivated! Now, go enter to win this set in the Rafflecopter widget below. Good luck!

I don't use body scrubs often because they dry my skin out but they look cool
