DIY Post Run Muscle Soak

DIY Post Run Muscle Soak

If you know me at all you know I DO NOT RUN. No matter how hard I try, I just don’t enjoy it. My husband on the other hand, is a little bit of an addict. He’s one of those guys who will wake up at 4:30am on a Sunday so he has time to complete his 24 mile run before church. Whaaaaat!? He’s also one of those guys who was not about the oil life for a very long time. It took months and months of muscle aches after runs and workouts before he even considered giving essential oils a shot! Now, he’s just as obsessed as I am!

Epsom Salt

Did you know that Epsom Salt isn’t really even salt? It’s actually a mineral compound of
magnesium and sulfate. Epsom salt in a bath is known to help with inflammation and muscle pain, making it perfect for soaking after a long run or intense workout! Add some Panaway in with it, and you’re muscles will be feeling great in no time!


This oil blend from Young Living Essential Oils is a mix of Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove, and Peppermint. It was created to help reduce inflammation by increasing circulation and healing, therefore reducing the pain! It’s commonly used to relieve arthritis, sprains, muscle spasms, and sports injuries! Check out a few properties of each of the oils in this blend!


  • regenerates tissue and nerves, improving circulation
  • helps regulate cholesterol
  • reduces scarring
  • may stimulate nerve endings


  • relieves muscle pain
  • helps regulate blood pressure


  • one of the most antimicrobial and antiseptic of all oils
  • anti-fungal, antiviral, anti-infectious, antibacterial


  • reduces fevers
  • strengthens the respiratory system
  • reduces nausea and vomiting

Each of these oils have so many great benefits on their own, and these are just a few of them! Just think of how amazing they are all blended together in this minty little oil called Panaway! And let me tell you, it smells amazing! When you use this muscle soak, your whole bathroom will smell of a fresh pack of wintergreen chewing gum! Yum!
