How does it work?
When these mustard seeds are broken, the enzyme myrosinase is released and acts on a glucosinolate known as
sinigrin to give allyl isothiocyanate (AITC). In studies on mice it was shown that the anti-microbial qualities of allyl isothiocyanate significantly reduced ascites secretion and tumor cell proliferation by about 80% and inhibited vascular endothelial growth factor expression in the tumor-bearing mice.
Allyl isothiocyanate (AITC) is the organosulfur compound with the formula CH2CHCH2NCS. This colorless oil is
responsible for the pungent taste of mustard, radish, horseradish and wasabi. This pungency and the lachrymatory effect
of AITC is mediated through the TRPA1 and TRPV1 ion ‘pain, cold and itch’ channels. AITC has been shown to induce strongly glutathione-S-transferase and quinine reductase (QR) activities.
Glutathione S-transferase comprise a family of eukaryotic and prokaryotic phase II metabolic isozymes best known for their ability to catalyze the conjugation of the reduced form of glutathione (GSH) to xenobiotic substrates for the purpose of detoxification via the liver. Induction of the phase II detoxification enzymes such as QR is a useful strategy for cancer chemoprevention. Many edible plants have been found to contain cancer chemopreventive agents capable of inducing phase II enzymes.
Full Bath – Add heaped tablespoon to a hot bath (keep it hot). Relax in the water for 20 minutes. Finish with a cold shower, dry with a rough towel, keep warm and relax for best results.
External use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of children’s reach. Do not use if hot baths are inadvisable
In the unlikely event that discomfort occurs, consult your health practitioner.

The best bath ever!
I was a little worried what the smell was going to be like because of the mustard … but WOW, the smell is divine! It’s hard to describe … it’s a little like olbas oil but much better than that. And this bath will make you sweat, and you will keep sweating for an hour or so even after your bath. And it leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and your body totally relaxed. This would be excellent for anyone with skin issues or excess acidity. Oh My God, this is such a wonderful find!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have come back and bought the bigger tub already. Each time I had one of these baths, I had such a good sleep. Normally, I only sleep 5 hours at a time, but I can sleep 6 -8 hours after one of these mustard baths. I would rate this as being one of the best. Do not hesitate to buy this, it’s amazing and I never want to be without it.
I had some kind of allergic reaction to an unknown insect bite or something but I broke out in hives and mosquito like bites. I applied lavender and tea tree oil which helped some but the bites remained and itched. I bought this mustard bath for arthritis baths and had not used it yet. The label indicated it was for skin conditions, too. I took the hot bath for the 20 minutes. I sweat and after checking my body for the bumps and hives….. all gone! I could not believe it. The bath pulled out whatever poisons were lurking and cleared up my skin. This bath occurred 3 days ago and no recurrence of rash or bumps. So if you get an allergic reaction that expresses itself through the skin, help your body eliminate the poison with this mustard bath. Absolutely amazing!
adds “heat” to a hot bath
love this stuff, especially after a vigorous workout. the mustard helps that heat really get into your muscles. it smells a bit like a lot of muscle soak baths, though a little spicier. leaves behind a residue in the tub, but nothing a quick rinse doesn’t take care of.
I used this a few times and each time I had to have a cup of ice water to drink while I’m soaking in the tub. You certainly can tell its purging out all the impurities.
Love the smell – fresh and calming. (I wasn’t sure what to expect from Mustard Seed, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Wintergreen & Thyme). I feel very relaxed after a long soak in the tub. Not sure if it’s the purifying effect, but my bowels are always very active the next morning (sorry if TMI).
