OVER-exercised Muscles

Over-exercised muscles cause pain and in some cases the inability to move without trembling as the muscles struggle to contract.

Rest is the best remedy, followed by hot baths and massage. If pain continues to be a problem you may have an injury. Ice can reduce swelling, if there is any, and the pain caused by inflammation.

Follow this with a hot bath into which you have put 3 drops of marjoram and 2 drops of lemon and soak for as long as possible. Afterwards massage with the following oil:

Eucalyptus 5 drops
Peppermint 5 drops

Diluted in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
