View Full Version : aching legs (and peppermint oil?)
Hello. I'm just after some advice on how to soothe aching legs. At night especially they are soooooo sore and I usually wake up to them aching quite badly. I started using Burts Bees Mama Bee Peppermint Soothing Gel... which helps a little. But I only just recently clicked that it has peppermint oil in it!! I heard this is a no-no? What alternatives could i use?
Sore legs can sometimes mean a deficiency in calcium and magnesium. You could try supplements. A good health food store could advise you on dose and safety in pregnancy, but I'm pretty sure they are ok. Soaking them in a tub of hot water with epsom salts helps mine.
I'm pretty sure I'm getting HEAPS of calcium, but I'll definitely look into magnesium tablets!
