Make some rosemary tea – but don’t drink it. Pour it in a hot bath and soak in it for 20 minutes. Dr. Alan Hirsch, director of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, says hot water relaxes muscles that are spasming. And the aromatic oils in rosemary boost production of the neurotransmitter serotonin – which relieves pain.
Sound good? Here’s the recipe: Steep half-a-cup of dried rosemary in boiling water for 10 minutes. Then strain it, add the tea to your bathwater, and climb in.
