6 Essential Oils to Boost Your Workout

  Lemongrass is a powerful tool for workouts. It has so many different uses that it can be a really great go-to oil to have on hand when you start pumping those weights. Massage over used muscles to help with tissue repair and muscle strains, diffuse while working out to help with negative thoughts, lethargy, etc.  If you experience a sprain while working out, rest and use lemongrass on the sprained muscle several times a day. This is an oil I use everyday on my knee. It helps with tissue repair (tendon and ligament). I layer peppermint, lemongrass, deepblue, aromatouch and frankincense on my knee and back before every workout session. It is a great way to warm up, and it helps with pain and repair. Peppermint is a great painkiller and is also an anti-inflammatory oil. In a recent study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, researchers looked at the effect of peppermint oil on running performance. In the study, they used 0.05 mil of peppermint oil in 500 ml of mineral water. They tested 12 healthy males over the course of 10 days. During that time, they monitored and measured Forced Vital Capacity (FVC), peak expiratory flow rate (PEF) and peak inspiratory flow (PIF), as well as blood pressure, heart rate and spirometry parameters. What they found at the end of the 10 day period was that FVC, PEF and PIF significantly changed. Also exercise performance evaluated by time to exhaustion, work and power were significantly increased. I have found that the Peppermint beadlets are great to use before every workout as they are energizing and opens up the airways, helping me to get a better workout. Respiratory Blend is great to rub on your chest before a workout to help keep respiratory passages open and air moving freely. This can be an added help for anyone who suffers from exercise induced asthma. Soothing Blend is a powerfully soothing oil blend to help reduce discomfort, ease achy joints and sore muscles and provide you with deep, penetrating relief. One of the key ingredients is wintergreen which is known for its ability to diminish soreness and discomfort. It also helps to keep respiratory passages open. This oil can be diffused into the air while you work out or use the Deep Blue Rub to massage into muscles and joints. Grounding Blend can be used for improved focus and clarity. It can also be used before a workout by rubbing it on your lower back and the back of your neck to keep Energy flow clear. After a workout, if you are experiencing any sore muscles, rub Balance on the affected area for quick relief. Marjoram is a great oil for relaxing tense muscles after a workout. It is supportive of the nervous and cardiovascular systems as well. Vitality Supplements and Natural Energy Supplements are two of the most important products I use. I’m 40 and at crossfit, I can out perform almost every woman and man when it comes to endurance workouts. Just this morning, we had a deadly WOD (workout of the day) which included 3 sets of lifts, jumps, pull-ups, squats and an 800 meter run. Did I say 3 sets? It was crazy difficult! But I have more energy and endurance than even when I was younger. These two products are incredible for my health and sport performance. These powerful workout oils can work separately or together to boost your workout and leave you feeling great! I have a little bag carries my oils with me in my bag or purse, everywhere I go. They offer a great support to my day to day activities. I would love to share more with you on this topic and see how these oils can bless your life.
