- Treat yourself to an Epsom salts bath. A cup or two of Epson salt dissolved in a warm bath works wonders for aching muscles because Epson salts are made up of magnesium sulfate, a natural muscle relaxant.
- Indulge in coconut oil. Using 2-3 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil per day in cooking and applied on foods help treat sore muscles and leg cramps.
