Rosemary (rosemarinus officinalis) is an aromatic herb that has a gentle stimulating effect on both nervous system and circulatory system, which makes it an effective natural remedy for fatigue. It has the ability to uplift the spirits of people suffering from depression. It also has the ability to soothe digestive complaints. Rosemary is also believed to improve memory.
Dosage information: 1 cup of tea up to three times per day (steep 1 teaspoon of dried leaves in 1 cup of hot water 10 to 15 minutes); or a few dropperfuls of tincture three or four times per day.
Tip: Spices that people perceive as hot such as mustard, horseradish, hot peppers, ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom will most likely help stimulate circulation. Symptoms that many people experience when fatigued include coldness and tension; the aforementioned herbs counteract these symptoms. The best place to find these stimulating herbs are in teas or seasonings in your favorite foods. However, do not use these herbs if you have an infection, fever, or any other condition that promotes heat such as hot flashes.
