An easy to use spot treatment for sore muscles. Mixed with aloe, it is non-greasy and odorless.

Pros

  • Relives sore muscles
  • Non-greasy aloe base
  • Odorless

Cons

  • This is not a pain medication

When I received a sample of the PROcure Epsom Salt Rub, my first thought was this is another product making dubious claims without any science behind it. While I had certainly taken Epsom salt laden baths in the past for aches and sore muscles it just seemed a stretch for it to work as a topical product. 

After using the rub for several months for a variety of muscle pains I became a believer. While it will never take the place of pharmaceutical products designed to block pain or reduce inflammation, it does work quite well on minor muscle soreness.

After overdoing it on bike rides, rubbing some Epsom salt rub into the affected muscles actually did relieve the muscle soreness. At first, I was leery of whether it actually was working, but after massaging the rub into a variety of sore muscles many times over a period of 4 months, I am now convinced that it does actually work. I have now taken to using it daily to calm down the soreness of a partially torn rotator cuff.

With a base of Aloe Vera and Magnesium Sulfate along with a variety of herbs, the rub is non-greasy and easy to massage into the treatment area. The 6-ounce tube claims to hold over 50 applications, but I have found that I have been able to get many more uses out of one tube. PROcure Epsom Salt Rub is available in pharmacies nationwide and on Amazon.com.
