Can Baths Help Migraine? Self Care and Epsom Salts
Can Baths Help Migraine? Sometimes. Taking a bath has become part of my self care routine. I typically make the time on Sundays to soak my week away. When I take a bath I love to create a relaxing and individualized experience. I fill my bath, light a candle, grab some water and turn on music (some days I love the quiet).
Headache Relief Bath:
- 1-2 cup Bath Salts (I use Aromatherapy Bath Salts by Aromafloria*)
- 1/4-1/2 cup baking soda
- 8-10 drops of essential oils (These are the oils I use*)
Benefits of baths
Boost Magnesium levels (many Migraine sufferers are known to be insufficient)
Reduce pain and inflammation
Increase energy or mental vibrancy
Soothe sore muscles
What do you put in your bath?
Can Baths Help Migraine? The simple answer is….there is no answer. Some days a bath is all I need to soak away my migraine symptoms. Other days, a hot bath makes my migraine worse. It is so individual and changes from day to day as does my preference for smell. I have found that incorporating baths into my routine has provided me comfort and a natural relief.
