When dealing with chronic pain, you may find that you are willing to try anything. What if you were told that there was a solution as relaxing and simple as a warm bath?
Bath bombs are extremely popular these days but did you know that if you find one containing the homeopathic active ingredient, Arnica Montana, it can help relieve discomfort from muscle pain, soreness, bruising, and swelling? Using pain relieving fizzy bath bombs in a warm, calming bath can leave a lasting impression on your pain level as you soak in this soothing environment.
Finding products with the right ingredients is key to this! Nature has a way of offering us exactly what the body needs to find balance.
Here are 7 reasons to love pain relief bath bombs, as well as a list of some great ingredients to find in one!
1) Pain Relief
Arnica Montana, a medicinal mountain daisy, is a homeopathic active ingredient known to help provide relief for muscle pain, soreness, bruising, and swelling. Finding a bath bomb that contains this ingredient may be the secret to relaxing and getting relief.
2) Soak in the Benefits
Epsom Salt, or Magnesium Sulfate, has been used as a common bath additive to soothe soreness and detox the body. By a process called reverse osmosis, the skin allows for the toxins to leave the body, and it absorbs sulfate and magnesium. Sulfates are key building blocks to the tissues of the body and in turn, beneficial for healing.
Magnesium is known to have a variety of benefits like decreasing inflammation, calming the nervous system, regulating blood pressure, encouraging restorative sleep, and much more. A relaxing soak in Epsom Salt will help you in your fight against pain.
3) Nature’s Ingredients, Extraordinary Results
The benefits of certain essential oils and herbs, such as chamomile, calendula, helichrysum, rosemary, and peppermint can also be added to initiate a full body experience. These all have a high concentration of phytochemicals from plants that can be used to provide a variety of benefits.
4) Moisturize Your Skin
Olive and sunflower oil bring in major antioxidant properties, which have an anti-aging effect on the skin. With vitamin E and beta-carotene on your side (and skin), you’ll look and feel refreshed.
5) Promote Relaxation
The properties in herbs like peppermint, helichrysum, turmeric, willow bark, wasabi extract, and chamomile are able to absorb into your skin and muscles and make you feel more relaxed.
6) Improve Your Sleep
Herbs for sleep will improve overall pain and stress-levels. It is hard enough to find adequate sleep in our busy lives before we add in the struggle of chronic pain. Chamomile, peppermint, and calendula work wonders for promoting calmness before bedtime.
7) Reap the Benefits of Hydrotherapy
The benefits from a warm bath are well known. Hydrotherapy has been used for centuries and for good reason! The feeling of physical relaxation, calming the mind, and even creating a ritual of self-care can leave you feeling more positive about your life overall!
