A Revitalizing, Invigorating Mustard Bath!

On this blog, we have often talked about the healing and pain relieving properties of mustard oil. We have pointed out that mustard oil has powerful antimicrobial, antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. These properties constitute the reason for which mustard oil has been used since ancient times for treating arthritic pain, tired muscles and sore joints.

Usually, the common practice – especially in the science of Ayurveda – is to apply mustard oil or mustard oil formulations as a balm or an ointment. It is also applied sometimes as a poultice.

Here’s another relaxing and invigorating way to let the power of mustard oil relieve body aches, relax your muscles, boost your metabolism and stimulate your blood circulation – take a Mustard Bath.

Take a quarter cup of mustard powder, a cup of baking soda, and a tablespoon of cold pressed mustard oil. To enhance your bathing experience, add five drops of the following essential oils: rosemary, eucalyptus and menthol.

Now fill your bathtub with warm water and add four to five tablespoons of this mixture. Soak your entire body in this soothing bath. It’s a great way to open up the pores of the skin, flush out toxins, relieve stress, get rid of headaches, and cure insomnia.

So when you get home after a hard day’s work or after a tiring workout at the gym, don’t just have a quick shower. Luxuriate in a Mustard Bath instead. What a feeling!
