1. Epsom salt for whenever anything on your body hurts.

Amazon / Via

Price: $4.49

"Dr. Teal’s Epsom salt and bubble bath. They come in super relaxing scents (my favorite is lavender). The bubble bath is nice and foamy and pretty long lasting! I also add a couple drops of lavender essential oil. Soothes my bod and my mind." —nicolec410676746

2. Cherry Stone Neck Pillow Wrap for hot or cold headache and back-pain relief.

Amazon / Via

Price: $25.95

"This pack is great for headaches, neck, shoulder, or back pain. It holds heat or cold for a long time and the mild cherry smell is pleasant. The pillow curves comfortably around the neck and shoulders. It can also be used for knee or other various aches and pains." —Amazon reviewer


5. Lemongrass essential oil to help with sleep troubles.

Amazon / Via

Price: $11

"I love using lemongrass essential oil in my oil burner. It is the perfect combination of comforting and uplifting. I often have trouble sleeping, and this helps me unwind before bed." —Emma Losin, Facebook

6. Murad Recovery Treatment Gel to heal cuts and burns fast.

Amazon / Via

Price: $44.74

"Recovery Treatment Gel from Murad is a wonder product! I used to get horrible breakouts post-eyebrow or lip waxing because of the baby oil they used to clean up afterwards. My esthetician turned me onto the gel and it keeps me bump free! And since Dr. Murad formulated it to increase cell turnover, it’s great to keep in a first aid kit for cuts and burns. Saves my skin after spending too much time in the sun too!" —heatherj4ae4b37f9


7. Sombra warm therapy pain-relieving gel to soothe sore muscles.

Amazon / Via

Price: $12.53

"I was in a car accident a few months ago and it soothes and loosens my muscles like nothing else. My chiropractor uses it during treatments and my dad has said it helps his golf game." —Rachel Polansky, Facebook

8. Lush's Mask of Magnaminty face and body mask to soothe your skin after a long day.

Amazon / Via

Price: $29.99

"Lush’s Mask of Magnaminty is the most refreshing face mask I’ve ever tried. It’s cooling and exfoliating, making it perfect for when I come home feeling gross and tired." —olliepop


11. Johnson and Johnson's Bedtime Baby Bath for its mild scent and relaxing formula.

Amazon / Via

Price: $6.99 (for a pack of three)

"Johnson and Johnson bedtime baby bath. Nice smell and tons of relaxing bubbles. Plus great for sensitive skin like mine." —kimberlyp45b69772f

12. Coconut oil for sensitive skin when shaving.

Amazon / Via

Price: $8.79

"My legs are the most sensitive mothers on the planet, and shaving used to be the worst experience — they ALWAYS broke out. I had tried everything, every shave gel, every kind of razor, and then I found coconut oil. The stuff CHANGED my life and it's fantastic. It's pretty cheap and lasts a LONNNNNNNNG time and zero breakouts on my legs, or any other part I shave. Highly recommend." —Kate Chambers, Facebook

13. Deep Blue Rub from DoTerra for topical pain relief.

Amazon / Via

Price: $32.18

"Deep Blue Rub from DoTerra. I use it on people at my clinic and I use it on myself. It smells pretty strongly like toothpaste, which is a huge bonus for me. It gets deeper than any pain relief cream I've used and, as a chiropractor, I've sampled many." —Anna Nusslock, Facebook


15. An ice bath to help muscles recover faster.

MTV / Via

"A quick dip in an ice bath has done wonders for me after a particularly grueling workout. I did martial arts growing up and all the way through college, and after some heinous workouts where I *knew* I was going to hurt the next day, I'd fill the bathtub hip deep with cool water, grab all the ice from the fridge's ice maker and dump it into the tub." —Karrah Marcha, Facebook

16. Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief Eucalyptus Spearmint to help calm down.

Amazon / Via

Price: $21.19 (for a body lotion and body wash bundle)

"The Bath and Body Works aromatherapy line. The eucalyptus tea tree scent for stress is my favorite. I've actually managed to stop a few panic attacks with it. As an added bonus, the eucalyptus in it helps open my sinuses." —Maddie Danielle Currie, Facebook

17. Tiger balm to soothe achy muscles and open up your sinuses.

Amazon / Via

Price: $5

"Tiger Balm. It’s a little gold-lidded jar that smells like Christmas and packs a powerful punch for sore muscles and joints. It even doubles as a good substitute for vapor rub. Helps clear nasal passages and eases breathing. I smear some onto a rag and hang it near my son’s crib whenever he’s congested." —bethanyg4e4e66702
