Elemis was founded in London in 1990 by entrepreneur Linda Steiner. She wanted to create products that were are close to nature as possible, with no expense spared while staying in the retail range. She put together a team of amazing people who pushed the boundaries of the brand. They used innovative marketing, packaging, design, and product development to get their products out there.

In 1996 Linda Steiner stepped down and handed her company over to her three partners, who still control the company today. They focused on reworking the branding, formulas, and packaging to bring the brand into the future. They relaunched in 1998 and are still going strong these days.

Elemis is the number one luxury British skincare brand. Your body, skin, and wellness are what they live for. They strive to make products that work for you and make you better.

They found a great balance between nature and science to bring you stellar products. The brand uses a blend chemistry of the environment with science to give you innovated and groundbreaking formulas. Additionally, Elemis takes advantage of the biologic actives that they find above and below the surface of the earth. The blend of aromatics with the natural ingredients found in the earth just increase the overall appeal.

The scientists and innovators at Elemis pay close attention to detail when creating their formula. This is one of the biggest things that sets them apart from the rest of the skincare companies. They pioneer recipes that work and make sure nothing slips through the cracks.

Their products help your personal skincare needs. They create formulas that fit your lifestyle needs. Catering to their customers is one of the reasons they keep coming back for more.

Simply slip into a warm bath with some of the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak, and you will be able to soothe your body and feel relaxed. The deep heat aroma creates a powerful synergy that will help your overworked muscles.


The Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak offers an amazing scent that will help soothe, energize, and uplift, all while soaking in the tub.

The use of extracts such as Juniper, Birch, Alpine Lavander, Clove, Blue Chamomille, and Wild Thyme provides you an incredibly deep heat aromatic treatment that provides stellar synergy to help you relax and soothing aching muscles.

It is amazing how a scent can help you relax and recover. The blend of oils and extracts in the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak can do just that. You will feel amazing and ready to go after a good soak.


At the end of a long day when all you want is to relax in a bath and feel better; you want to make sure the muscle soak you are using works. It is frustrating when you purchase a product, go to use it, just to find out it was a waste of money, and does nothing to soothe your body.

That is not the case with the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak. Most consumers can agree that it works wonders. The scent is calming, and the bath helps them feel much better.

Of course, there are always naysayers. A small handful of consumers were not impressed with the effectiveness of the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak. They stated that, for the price, it just didn't do much for them. Additionally, after their soak, they felt no relief to their sore muscles. This isn't something that happens ofter, but you should note that some reviewers were less than pleased.


Even though the brand focuses on nature, their ingredients are not all-natural like some of the other muscle soaks you will find. They use a blend of natural and unnatural ingredients to bring you exactly what you need to soothe your sore body.

The Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak uses the following ingredients:

Water, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Acrylates Copolymer, Fragrance, Glycerin, Polysorbate 20, PEG-18 Glyceryl Oleate/Cocoate, Sodium Chloride, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Lavadin (Lavandula Hybrida) Oil, Pinus Pinaster Leaf/Twig Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Copper PCA, Coriandrum Sativum Seed Oil, Clove (Eugenia Caryophyllus) Bud Oil, Disodium EDTA, Styrene/Acrylamide Copolymer, Citric Acid, Triethylene Glycol, Thyme (Thymus Srepillium Extract) Oil, Birch (Betula Lenta) Bark Oil, Rosemary (Rosmarinus Officinalis) Leaf Oil, Caramel, Propylene Glycol, Sea Salt (Maris Sal), Matricaria (Chamomilla Recutita) Flower Oil, Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia) Oil, Juniper (Juniperus Communis) Fruit Oil, Benzoic Acid,Magnesium Nitrate, Magnesium Chloride, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Linalool, Limonene, Benzyl Alcohol, Eugenol, and Geraniol

It can a bit intimidating to see all those big and hard to pronounce names in the ingredient list. However, they all work together to give you the perfect blend that your sore body needs. After a long, hard workout or a particularly stressful day, you won't mind that you can't pronounce the names on the bottle. Soaking in that tub with the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak will make you forget all of that while you soothe your body and relax.

One thing you can be sure of with the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak is that it will never use artificial colors, parabens, SLES, SLS, mineral oils, or DEA. There might be a lot of unnatural ingredients, but these will never be one of them.

How to Use

The Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak is super easy to use; it is barely an inconvenience. You simply add about three capfuls of the soak while you are filling your tub. After your bath is ready, you step in and relax for about 10-15 minutes.

Elemis recommend doing some abdominal breathing techniques while you are soaking to help you relax and stay calm, enhancing your experience.

They also suggest that you follow up your bath with the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak with a muscle massage. You simply drag your thumbs up and down the back of your claves and knees in a line. This can help promote lymph draining as well as improve circulation. You can then continue the message around to your thighs, loosening up your muscles and giving yourself additional relief to the pain. Don't forget your feet either. Giving yourself a quick foot rub can make all of the difference and increase your overall experience with the muscle soak.

Of course, the additional post-bath massage isn't necessary to take advantage of the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak. It will, however, give you a little relief for your sore and achy muscles.


When using the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak there are some precautions that you want to make sure you are aware of to keep yourself safe.

Of course, this is for external use only. You don't want to consume the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak. Additionally, if it gets in your eyes make sure you flush them out with clean water.

Another warning they give is that you should not use this product if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.


The Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak only comes in one size. It is available in a 13.5 fluid ounce bottle. Unfortunately, if you are looking for a smaller size to try the product out, you are out of luck. If you want something bigger, you will have to purchase more than one bottle, as there are no other options.


When it comes to muscle soaks, there are no other varieties in the Elemis line. This is the one and only. They didn't need to make anything else, as this one works!

That said, they do offer other products that help ease your muscles. If you want more than just a muscle soak, you can check them out.


Since the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak is a liquid mixture there isn't much complaint about the consistency. This is unlike some of the other muscle soaks that come in the form of bath salts. Consumers much prefer the convenience of a liquid soak as opposed to the consistency of salts.


Unlike some of the other muscle soaks on the market, the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak will not turn your water an unnatural color. That can be off-putting to some consumers so it is good to know that you won't have to deal with that.

Elemis never has and never will use artificial colors or dyes in any of their products.


One thing that consumers really do not like about this product is the cost. It is extremely steep, even when compared to similar products. Keep in mind that the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak works, for most customers, so many believe that it is worth the cost. However, there is a small percentage that would disagree with this statement.

The problem is, even when customers love this product, they just can't justify the purchase in their budget. They will use it as a gift to themselves or a reward for achieving their fitness goals. The price stops a lot of consumers from re-purchasing the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak, even though it's an exceptional product.

Bottom Line

If you had a long hard day at work, or if you spent a decent amount of time at the gym and your muscles are sore, you might want to consider a bath with the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak. It does a phenomenal job at helping you relax and soothing your sore and achy muscles.

It does have a super high price tag, so if you are on a budget this might not be the right product for you. However, if you have a little extra and want to spluge then this is the perfect option. You won't be sorry after a luxurious bath with Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak.

It offers stellar synergy to help your tired, overworked, and sore muscles. It is a naturally foaming soak that features an uplifting and energized aroma. You will feel refreshed and relaxed after stepping out of the tub, almost like a whole new person.
