-Rosemary – This fragrant plant relieves muscle pain, low blood pressure and cold feet and hands.
-Spearmint – The oil from spearmint aids digestion and eases nausea and vomiting.
-Masculine scents – Scents such as bay laurel and ylang-ylang appeal to men for their deep scent. They also treat skin rashes, rheumatism and stomach ailments.
