Home Spa: Salt Scrub for Muscle Pain

Mix castor oil with sea salt, and add a few drops of lavender oil. Mix so that it is not too oily nor too grainy. Rub on sore places, wet or dry, until skin reddens slightly. Shower off when done.
Castor oil, beloved of boxers, has been called the hand of God because it can reach into muscle knots.
I like a softer, unmilled sea salt but any will do.
Choose lavender for calming or eucalyptus for cold or invigoration. Pettigrain is nice. Experiment. Use vanilla in moderation if you don’t yet have essential oils.
It’s good for the skin too.
