Welcome Pain ReliefDespite its spiciness, ginger is anti-inflammatory. If you have chronic pain and tightness, this foot bath can bring welcome relief. Rosemary aids in pain relief by clearing stagnant blood, lymph and calming your nerves so they are less reactive. Climb into bed tonight warm to the core, with loose muscles, and quiet mind.
Sunny & WarmBring a little sunshine into gray winter with ginger. Warming yellow and sweetly hot, it's a little slice of sun itself. Ginger clears away the damp clouds of winter, invigorating your whole system as it lifts your mood. Combine ginger with enlivening rosemary to relax tight muscles, calm your mind, soften your nervous system, and warm up your entire body. Simply by soaking your feet, the circulatory stimulation inspired by hot, spicy ginger, and aromatic rosemary will create a deep warmth that reaches your core. Dry ginger is much hotter than fresh ginger. For cold constitutions, it's the more powerful choice. For those firey pitta constitutions who wish to warm up, but run the risk of overheating, fresh ginger is a perfect middle ground. My Saved Articles | Most Popular

Does fresh natural ginger and fresh natural rosemary work just as well or does it have to be a processed product? Thanks. Ruby
Here is the recipe: boil some water, add two teaspoons of dried ginger and one teaspoon of rosemary - enjoy!!
Generally dried spices and herbs are more potent but fresh should work fine - you may find you need to add a little more to get the full effect!
