I have been informed by my co-work that Epsom salt can be used to relax the muscles. I went online and did some wiki researching. I wanted to try and I came to amazon. First, I was not sure what to buy. I bought something prior to this and it only lasted couple weeks. This has much better value/economical. It does not smell like a lavender but does the same job of relaxing me after a long day at work.
I will continue to purchase this in the future until something better comes along.
I was a runner beginning in 1980. After running more miles than the circumference of the Earth, including 11 marathons, I began experiencing chronically sore ankles. Ultimately, I stopped running in 2003. It was just too uncomfortable. I was talking to a runner friend about the problem. He's a guy who enjoys 100-mile runs and has even competed in the Badwater 135. In any case, he expressed his condolences and suggested that I try soaking my feet/ankles in a solution of Epsom Salt. Well, this is one of those old folk-tale remedies, but if a guy that runs 100-mile races says to try it, I'll try it.
I picked up a box of Swan Epsom Salt at my local grocery store. It wasn't very expensive. It came in what looked like a two-quart milk carton. The usage instructions were imprinted on one side of the carton. I mixed the epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) with hot water and soaked my feet/ankles in a hot water solution. I tend to be skeptical about such magical "cures," I should add...
These are your regular epsom salts, and are nicely packaged (watch when you cut the top, as you can get the "closure" side in with the cut!).
However, one can pick up the same quality/quantity for 1/4 the price at your local Walmart's or grocer. One instance when it pays to shop locally.
