I like this epsom salt product. I have degenerative disc pain & fibromyalgia as well as a hip replacement. Chronic pain issues are difficult to manage. Im pretty sure the magnesium content helps my muscles but the pain subsides only for a short time with my issues. However, the lavender smell is lovely- though it doesn't last very long. Im considering adding oils to the next soak! But this is a good soak -the hot bath alone and the salts is a pleasurable tool for stress relief.
