January 25, 2008, Newsletter Issue #145: Herbal Treatments For Muscle Aches

Tip of the Week

Muscle soreness does not need to be the result of an obvious or serious injury, as anyone who has done some unaccustomed exercise will know. Muscle soreness is due to a build-up of lactic acid in the muscle tissue. Herbal baths and massages can help relieve the soreness and speed recovery.

Add a strong infusion of rosemary (2 teaspoons of dried herb to one cup of water) to your bath. Alternatively, crush some fresh rosemary and a few black peppercorns, tie them into a muslin cloth and add to your bath.

If the muscle soreness is very localized, for example a sore arm after an afternoon’s painting, soak a towel in a strong infusion of thyme and apply as a compress to the affected area.
