Too enthusiastic at the gym?! Add 2 drops of Cypress, 2 drops of Rosemary and 1 drop of Lavender to a bowl of boiling water. Lay a folded flannel in the water, wring and place it on the aching area. Alternatively, blend the above oils with a teaspoon of Peach Kernel oil and stir it into a warm bath.
