Yeah, arnika is good too. It also helps with bruises. You can buy it in the naturalpath area of most stores now.

After your workout, take a shower and let the last minute or 2 run on ice cold water. Or if you like bath's better, try the epsom salt as mentioned. Also tiger balm is a very good option to go with :]

The main cause is not lactic acid build-up. Lactic acid is a factor in the burning, "over-worked" sensation, but the main cause is microscopic tears in the muscle fiber. Best way to help with after-workout muscle pain is a good protein boost.

Buy a foam roller and use it. Contrast showers: 30 second hot / 30 second cold.
