In addition to hand exercises (wrist flexors and extensors) and salt or sugar scrubs - you can treat your hands by giving them a warm salt bath.
You will need:
- A hand bath or large bowl
- Warm water (hand hot)
- 1 tbsp of Himalayan or Epsom Salts
- A muslin cloth, flannel or washcloth. (optional)
- If you are suffering from sore muscles add a few drops of Lavandin oil and/or Sweet Marjoram Oils and/or Peppermint oil to help relax the muscles and provide gentle pain relief. If you can only afford one oil - use Lavender for its healing properties, it is also mildly analgesic which is great if you're feeling a bit stiff.
