Mustard in your bath? It sounds strange, but here’s why you should do it!
We love a good squeeze of mustard on our hotdog or sandwich! A lot of people love mustard while others don’t want anything to do with it because of the specific, slightly strange, taste. However, the trick we’ve got for you today doesn’t have anything to do with eating. In fact, even though you might not like mustard, this trick could make it worth your while to go out and buy a bottle!
Mustard is much more useful than you might have thought!
Mustard has been around for a long, long time. The Romans already used it a lot way back when and it is still a common food product in modern times as well. Not only do many people think it’s a tasty addition to a lot of food, but it also has great health benefits, as opposed to mayonnaise and ketchup, which are much more unhealthy. Did you know, for example, that mustard can help soothe a sore throat? Mix one tablespoon of mustard seeds with a tablespoon salt, tablespoon honey, the juice of half a lemon and boiling water. Let this mixture cool and gurgle your throat with it. You’ll notice immediate relief!
That’s not the tip we are here for today, though. We’re here to tell you why you should add mustard to your bath water! Go to the next page to read all about it!
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!
