My mom has lupus and has suffered with chronic pain related to her knees, hands, organs and back for almost 20 years. She likes to find herbal ways to manage the pain so I was not surprised when she wanted to take Curamin® Stop Pain Now herbal dietary supplement.
Last year I relocated to Georgia to help my family and to be her caregiver. I aide her in many household chores, run errands, assist her when walking and bathing. I wanted find a relaxing way for my mom to manage her pain so I made her this DIY Peppermint Bath Salt.
My mom enjoys her pain free days when she can spend time with the boys or go out to eat. Curamin® helps her to get back to her life and experience less pain so it was easy for us to understand why it is the #1 selling brand for pain relief. This supplement gets to the source of her pain to stop it rather than masking it.
Using Curamin® and mediating in a warm bath with the peppermint bath salt is the perfect way for her to manage the chronic pain. Soaking with this awesome DIY bath salt is aromatherapy and relaxes the body. The following mediation techniques below aide in relaxing the body and the mind.
