The muscles of the body are frequently abused by strain, exposure to extreme temperatures, and bruises. Stress and other emotional problems can also affect the performance and resiliency of muscles, just as other causes such as vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and circulatory disorders.

However, numerous natural remedies are available to relieve aching muscles and strengthen muscle fibers.

Herbal Teas

To relieve pain in muscle tissues, add a teaspoon of ash leaves in a cup of boiling water. Steep for ten minutes, strain, and sip slowly.

For pains associated with rheumatism, prepare a mixture of half an ounce each of ash leaves, rest-harrow root, and nettle green parts, and a pinch each of rose hips and bean pod. Add one teaspoon of the mixture in a cup of boiling water. Steep for 15 minutes and strain. Drink up to 3 cups a day.

Hot Bath

To relieve sprains, bruises, and overexerted muscles, boil dried rosemary leaves for 5 minutes and steep for about 15 to 20 minutes. Add the mixture to your bath water, soaking the injured area for 15 minutes.

Mineral-rich Diet

The body loses minerals such as potassium and magnesium during strenuous muscular activities. To maintain good levels of potassium and prevent muscle cramps, eat plenty of bananas and apricots. Whole grain, potatoes, vegetables, and nuts, on the other hand, are good sources of magnesium.

Fruit and vegetable juices, as well as herbal teas, are known to help relieve muscle inflammations by promoting the elimination of toxins from the body.

Hot and Cold Compress

Apply a cold compress (ice packs) to bruised and painful muscles immediately after an injury. The cold will relieve the pain and relieve any inflammations. After a couple of days, shift to heat treatments (hot compress or hot baths). The heat will stimulate blood circulation, relaxation, and healing.

Essential Oils Massage

Essential oils can help relax tense muscles and improve circulation. Gently massage a mixture of 5 parts St. John’s Wort oil, 1 part each of arnica, rosemary, and eucalyptus oils into sore and overworked muscles.
