Cruelty-Free and Natural Alternative Muscle Relief

Cruelty-Free and Natural Alternative Muscle Relief

Sore and achy muscles come with the territory of working out and aging (which starts at about age 18). There are a lot of medicines, pills and patches for soreness and pain, but I want to share natural alternatives. The best ways to relieve soreness and pain are eating fruits, vegetables and drinking water, deep tissue massages/breaking fascia, stretching, bath soaks, and natural topical relief.

I’ve listed natural options for bath soaks and topical relief. I pray for your well-being and healing. 😘
