sore muscle soak {San Francisco Salt Company}

San Francisco Sat CompanyThe almighty San Francisco Salt Company is all about salt.  I have been looking to SFSC for my salt needs for years–culinary and skin.  This company can harness the powers of natural mineral sea salts to “enhance your well being”.  The company is split into two divisions: bath salts and food salts.  In addition to their own lines, SFSC also designs and manufactures bath and body products for other companies.  They also provide raw salts to other top companies in the cosmetic and culinary industries.  Look into their gourmet food salts to enhance your dining experience, but I’m going back to where it all started–bath salts.

Founder Lee Williamson was working long days and coming home to long soaks in the tub.  He noticed how the long soaks soothed his muscles, making for a a restful, peaceful slumber.  He awoke refreshed each morning and with smoother skin.   At that point, he decided others needed to know the benefit of soaking in sea salt and grabbed his childhood buddy, Daniel Elmer, to form San Francisco Salt Company.  They formed the company around their principles for quality product and excellent customer service.  Their success is evident when you see just how far the reach of SFSC is (global).  As a mom to a very active girl, I’ve started to notice my achy muscles.  This may also be due to old age (but I’m just 26) or maybe it’s from the grueling P90X workouts.  Whatever the reason is (children, age, activity) I need a good soak at the end of the night.  I had gotten away from baths, mostly due to lack of time.  But when I saw San Francisco Salt Company had a Muscle Soak, I jumped back into tubtime.

The Muscle Soak is designed to soothe and revive stressed, tired, even achy muscles–bringing them back to life.  This particular product is epsom salts infused with essential oils of eucalyptus and peppermint.   Eucalyptus is well known for being used in a variety of medicinal ways.  The oil is antimicrobial, which makes it ideal for bath use.  FYI, eucalyptus oil is great for putting directly on wounds to prevent infection.  Peppermint oil is also know for its medicinal value.  As you will smell when opening the product, both also have very appealing aromas.  Those are the only ingredients in the soak: salt, eucalyptus oil, peppermint oil.  nice.  Dissolve a handful of salts under running water and enter your enhanced bath.   If you’re having one of those really rough days, add two handfuls of salts for an extra therapeutic soak and stay in for longer.  From my personal experience, it really works a world of wonder.  I started my first muscle soak bath after a grueling double workout.  It was evening and not only was the warm bath inviting, but the scents really relaxed me.  After some time in the bath, I begrudgingly got out and toweled off.  I pretty much immediately went to bed and fell asleep.  After a week of using the soak in a similar way, I noticed indeed that it soothed my sore muscles; and it also left my skin very soft.   It has absolutely become my go-to foot soak after a long day in heels.

If sore muscles are not on your issue list, check out the calming, antioxidant, detox, and even cold & flu bath salts.  Purchase your own Muscle Soak straight from San Francisco Salt Company.  While at their website, browse around the other salt soak products, and also the Gourmet Salts. Keep in the know on Facebook and Twitter.
