Essential oils are a great way to boost the benefits of your workout. Before beginning, they are helpful to increase circulation and warm your muscles. During your workout, you can increase focus, energy, mental stamina, and support metabolism. After working out, you can assist the release of waste that was built up in your muscles.
Try these suggestions with your next workout:
Pre Workout- Use Breathe Respiratory Blend on the chest, back of the neck, or bottom of the feet to open the airways*. Warm your muscles with a mixture of Rosemary, Lavender, & Eucalyptus applied topically. Use a carrier oil, like fractionated coconut oil, if you need to dilute for skin sensitivity.
During Workout- Slim and Sassy Metabolic Blend in your water (use a metal or glass bottle) to boost metabolism and increase energy*. Peppermint can be inhaled to increase alertness and help you focus. Peppermint can be rubbed onto tired muscles and feet to increase oxygen and energize muscles*.
Post Workout- Deep Blue Soothing Blend and AromaTouch Massage Blend feel great rubbed into sore muscles. You can also try Helichrysum and Lavender with Epsom Salts in a bath soak. Serenity Calming Blend rubbed into tired feet and onto the spine also helps the body repair*.
