Molton Brown Re-charge Black Pepper SPORT Muscle Soak
This is probably designed for rugby forwards and cross-country runners – but my, it comes into its own after a session of spring pruning. These mineral-rich bathing salts are infused with a muscle-soothing, sense-awakening fragrance blend of black pepper oil, grapefruit and cardamom (with just a little jasmine twining through it), ‘designed for the modern sportsman’. Molton Brown could just as easily move this under the umbrella of their gardener’s range, we think.
Add a generous amount to bathwater, lie back – and feel the aches ebb away. (The one caveat: as it’s salt-based, best not to use after pruning roses, or there’s a bit of an ‘ouch’ factor.)
We might not splash on the actual Re-charge Black Pepper fragrance (much as we love to smell it on a man) – but we’re happy as Larry to pinch his bath salts.
