I got this as a surprise gift from my mom a week or two ago. From the get go, I liked the color of the salts. They're a pretty sage color. It seems like a healing color to me which goes along with how these are supposed to soothe ones muscle aches and joint pain. I experience soreness allover my body everyday, so I was hoping that these would help.

I took a bath a couple of nights ago and poured approximately 1/3 of a cup into my bath under the running water, like the instructions said to do. From my experience, I didn't think that the salts made me feel any less sore than a bath without salts would make me feel. The hot water usually loosens up my muscles a bit, but I didn't think the salts made any difference. I was hoping that when I got out of the tub I would feel no pain when I rolled my shoulders or my neck, but they still felt painful. I also hoped that this would help keep pain away longer than an ordinary bath would, but it didn't.

When I first smelled this, I thought, "Wow, this is not my sort of scent AT ALL." The fragrance conjures up Vick's Vaporub, but it makes sense because of the ingredients in here like eucalyptus oil, spearmint leaf oil, menthol and camphor. I figured even though I wasn't in love with the smell, I would definitely use it if it helped! Unfortunately, this wasn't the case. It didn't make a dent in my pain level and it is going back to the store where it was bought. I know these bath salts can be found at Rite Aid and Walmart, at least where I live.

The product looks really nice from the outside. I like the medicinal looking label with the cross on it. At first I thought that the bottle was glass, but it is actually a thick plastic which I prefer (Less apt to break).
