Muscle soother

Think of rosemary as your natural Icy Hot. "The herb contains many therapeutic oils that can help muscles loosen up," says Trisha Shirey, director of flora and fauna at Lake Austin Spa Resort in Austin, Texas.

To ease soreness, make Shirey’s rejuvenating rosemary body scrub: Combine 1/4 cup sea salt and ground or finely chopped fresh rosemary from the leaves of 1 (4-inch) sprig; mix with 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil and 3 drops each of rosemary and peppermint essential oils. Scrub skin lightly with the mixture; shower off. Your muscles will relax, and so will you.
