I can't help you out with picking the best cleats, helmets, or bikes, but I've got you covered on wellness products that will help you feel your best so you can perform at your best.

Immunity 

  • On Guard Protective Blend: Take internally to boost immunity by adding 1 drop to every 4oz of water or by adding 1-2 drops to a veggie capsule.* Diffuse for indoor workouts to help cleanse the air. It's citrusy and spicy aroma energizes and promotes focus and concentration.
  • On Guard Sanitizing Mist: Keep a bottle in your workout or gear bag and apply to hands to eliminate bacteria and other germs from the skin.* This can be especially handy if you are training in a public space with shared equipment.
  • TriEase Seasonal Blend Softgels: Each softgel contains equal parts Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint essential oils, known for their ability to maintain clear breathing and a healthy immune response when combined.* You can also combine these three oils yourself in a softgel for a DIY version.

Energy & Mood

  • Peppermint: Apply Peppermint to the back of the neck or to the chest when you are feeling fatigued or lack motivation.*

Discomfort Relief

  • Deep Blue Soothing Blend: Apply as a preventative measure before training or participating in a game or event, and after to relieve and head off discomfort.
  • Deep Blue Rub: Deep Blue comes in a variety of formats, but the rub is often the go to for athletes because it is easy to apply to muscles and joints and has long-lasting warming and cooling effects.*

Clean Up

  • Purify Cleansing Blend: Place a few drops of Purify on a cotton ball place inside a shoe, a gym bag, or an equipment bag to keep harsh odors at bay. Add a few drops of Purify to the rinse cycle when doing laundry to get rid of tough odors. Or, add a few drops to wool dryer balls before adding them to your dryer. If you have a training space inside your home, diffuse Purify to cleanse the air and eliminate odors.

  • Lemon: Use Lemon to make a cleansing and aromatic room spray. Fill a glass spray bottle with water then add 20-40 drops of Lemon. The amount you use will depend on the size of the bottle and the intensity of the aroma that you desire. Swap out Lemon with any other citrus essential oil like Lime or Wild Orange, or mix them together for a more complex aroma.

Miscellaneous

  • Fractionated Coconut Oil: Keep on hand to dilute oils for topical application. Certain essential oils like Lemongrass and Wintergreen always should be diluted before applying. You may want to dilute other oils when applying to larger areas or for increased absorption.
