I have fibromyalgia so I’m very familiar with aches, pains, and sore muscles. So I created this natural sore muscle salt scrub recipe to help relieve that achy and stiff feeling I get in the morning as well toward the end of the work day. This all natural salt scrub recipe is great for a morning or evening shower – or whenever you feel like you need some sore muscle relief!

This natural sore muscle salt scrub recipe contains Epsom salt and organic essential oils to help soothe sore muscles.

This natural sore muscle salt scrub recipe works two fold for me. The Epsom salts and organic essential oils work to help relieve sore muscles, while the massaging motion of rubbing the salt scrub into my muscles helps to also ease the pain symptoms of the fibromyalgia. Give it a try and tell me what you think!

Natural Sore Muscle Salt Scrub Recipe

1 Cup Epsom Salt
4 Tablespoons Sweet Almond Oil or Grapeseed Oil
3 Tablespoons Shea Butter
2 mL Tangerine Essential Oil
1 mL Peppermint Essential Oil
1 mL Eucalyptus Essential Oil


To create this natural sore muscle salt scrub recipe, begin by measuring out the shea butter with a level Tablespoon and place in a glass bowl or other heat safe container. Melt the shea butter in your microwave at 50% power until just melted.

Next, measure out your carrier oil and mix into the shea butter.

Now, measure out your essential oils one at a time, using a separate pipette with mL markings for each essential oil, and stir into your shea butter and carrier oil mixture.

Finally, measure out your Epsom salts with a measuring cup and pour into the bowl with your shea butter and oils. Mix well. Store your completed natural sore muscle salt scrub recipe in an airtight container.

To use, simply remove your desired amount of this natural sore muscle salt scrub from the container and massage into skin, avoiding your face. Alternately, you can add a scoop of your bath salts to warm, running bath water instead and settle in for a long soak!
