This is why you should add mustard to your bath water


Eating mustard can also help quite well when you’re experiencing cramps, for example. But besides having quite a few benefits when you eat it, there are also a lot of benefits when it comes to external use. Do you have painful or tired muscles? Give this trick a try!


Run a nice bath but instead of adding your usual bath bomb or bubbles, add two tablespoons of mustard and a little bit of Epsom salt to the water. In traditional Indian medicine, the tradition to apply mustard to the skin to relieve aching muscles dates back to millennia ago. That’s because mustard contains a small amount of sulfur, which can help reduce skin infection. It also helps against inflammation and it triggers the skin in such a way that your blood flow is improved. So, it’s definitely worth a try!
