Muscle soreness and muscle ache is a pretty common problem in today's time. We all work so hard and spend so much time sitting at our desks and such and this often leads to muscle tension and soreness. This can be very uncomfortable and cause discomfort and make even the tiniest task seem like a big deal and a big problem. Most of us tend to put up with this pain and simply pop some painkillers and get going with our work but the one thing that most of us are unaware of is that there are some natural ways to get rid of this discomfort and all your muscles actually need is some relaxation. There are home remedies for everything though we would recommend that you first consult your doctor before you simply pop a painkiller and turn to some home remedies. But when you do, remember that some natural things can help relax your muscles and relieve pain with ease.

 

Here are some natural muscle relaxants that we all should know about:

1. Epsom Salt

Epsom salt contains magnesium which is just the mineral that our muscles need in order to relax. Going for a warm epsom salt bath can help your muscles relax and reduce pain and soreness in muscles. Using them in a bath and in direct contact with the skin is the best way to get quick and instant relief.

2. Peppermint

Menthol is an active ingredient in peppermint. Peppermint oil or some peppermint tea can help cool your muscles and reduce inflammation and relax them. Peppermint is known to have anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic and analgesic properties which help relax your muscles and reduce spasms and soreness and muscle pain.

3. Chamomile

Chamomile is known to have a soothing impact on your mind as well as your body. It helps your muscles relax and also helps you sleep. A cup of chamomile tea contains anti-inflammatory properties and contents which can help relax your muscles.

4. Vitamin D

Vitamin D is known to help strengthen muscles and help them function better and stabilize them. Vitamin D deficiency can be the main cause behind muscle pain and soreness and the best way to get rid of this problem is to go sunbathing or consume some vitamin d pills.

 

5. Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne pepper contains a compound called capsaicin which is known to have muscle-relaxing properties and can help relieve pain and stiffness of muscles. You can make a paste of cayenne pepper powder with a carrier oil like coconut or olive oil which can help provide relief from pain.

6. Lavender Oil

Lavender has an amazing fragrance that is loved by most people. But it also has health benefits and helps reduce swelling and pain and soothe your mind and body which helps your muscles relax. It is also known to reduce inflammation. Massage your muscles with a few drops of lavender essential oil mixed with a carrier oil or you can take a warm bath with a few drops of lavender essential oil.
