Taking a warm shower after a work-out is one of the best things you can do, not only to make you feel good (all those negative ions you are inhaling are so beneficial) but to help eliminate the lactic add that causes muscle ache.
A shower with just Soap and water cannot provide the deep cleaning your body requires, but using essential oils will help to eliminate waste products from the body, preventing sore and aching muscles.
Before taking a shower, rub the body with a clean flannel on which you have put 3 neat drops of essential oil, rub it all over yourself and then shower in the normal way. A combination of equal parts of Rosemary, Lemon and Eucalyptus Peppermint would be ideal for this purpose.
After showering, massage the muscles with a muscle relaxant oil or toning oil, depending on what you want to achieve.
