1. Ole Henriksen Muscle Comfort Lotion
£31 for 340ml
This non-greasy mix of essential oils is a great pre-work and post-gym addition. Don’t let the paint-like look put you off - it soothes tired muscles, while seaweed extract supplies vitamins and minerals to tired skin. It doesn’t smell much like seaweed, though, which is probably a good thing.
2. Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Muscle Gel
£16 for 150ml
If you're achy after sitting in the office all day or a big workout at the gym this smooth muscle-relaxing gel's pure essential oils of rosemary, black pepper and ginger will help you relax. Massage it into your joints and muscles for an instant soothing and relaxing feeling, and we do mean instant.
3. Champneys Sports Therapy Revitalising Muscle Rehab Bath Soak
£6 for 300ml
Training can take its toll, so Champneys’ therapists (probably with the help of some brainy scientists) have designed a formula to rest and relax muscles with deep-soothing and tension-relieving properties. It smells a lot better than Deep Heat too.
