Whether the condition is stress, muscle or joint aches, common congestion, periodic tensions, sleeplessness or fatigue, many people experience symptomatic relief by using Mustard Bath .The name mustard comes from the Latin 'mustum ardens' or 'burning must', so named because the seeds were pounded with unfermented grape juice or 'must', to develop their pungent/burning qualitie.

Therapeutic Mustard Bath:

A mustard bath is a traditional English remedy for tired, stressed muscles. Mustard is known for its stimulating, cleaning qualities, as are epsom salts and dead sea salts. The mustard draws out impurities and warms your muscles. Peppermint, rosemary and eucalyptus oils are stimulating, antiseptic and rejuvenating.


The healing effects of Mustard have been appreciated by many cultures over the last 30 centuries. The ancient Greeks & Romans, Europeans, and Native Americans have all used Mustard for medicinal purposes.


An interesting fact about the mustard bath is that when you get yourself in the tub for a bath you are not the same as you were earlier. The dead skin cells, toxins and whatever other bodily wastes existed underneath your epidermis is no more there. This may be the reason for not recommending the mustard bath for sensitive skins.
