Mustard bath is insomnia’s worst enemy and I’m surprised it doesn’t have more buzz. I’ve gotta show this miracle product some love!
What is mustard bath, you ask? The main ingredient is mustard seed powder which heats up, opens pores, drawing out impurities from tissues. A blend of therapeutic essential oils are added, giving the powder a minty smell, will clear your sinuses and soothe any soreness or muscle tension, and increase circulation.
I add about 1/4 cup to piping hot bathwater and soak in it for 20-30 minutes. Get ready to sweat! Oh, and you’ll probably feel loosey-goosey afterwards, in a good way (the same feeling after a deeply relaxing massage, but more intense!) so it’s best to soak right before bedtime.
I took a mustard bath last night and I’m happy to report that I woke up this morning feeling like a Disney princess awakening, glowing and fresh, from a thousand year slumber. Yeah, that good.
I buy Dr. Singha’s Mustard Bath powder which is already inexpensive, but since it is made up of essential oils and mustard powder, I’m sure it would be very easy to make your own. Here’s a great DIY recipe!
