Top 3 Ways Essential Oils Can Boost Your Workout Routine

Top 3 Ways Essential Oils Can Boost Your Workout Routine

If you’ve ever been to a yoga class, you may have had a teacher who uses essential oils as you flow throughout the session. If you’ve never taken the time to do research on these oils, their benefits, or used them yourself, this likely you didn't know what they were for. Essential oils are volatile oils extracted from plants that are known to have a variety of health benefits. With so many essential oils and out there, it’s time to delve deep into the aromatherapy world to discover just what uses you’ve been missing and how you can integrate it into the routines you already have in place.
Here are the top 3 ways essential oils can boost your workout routine!

#1 It can help you prepare for the workout

Are you the kind of person who can never seem to get out of bed in the morning to go to the gym? You’re not alone! Luckily, there’s an essential oil to help you get going. Peppermint oil gets you out of bed and ready to exercise when you’re in need of a little energizer (even if that’s every morning). But don’t worry – you don’t have to do anything elaborate to get this benefit. With an essential oils bracelet, all you have to do is put it on when you wake up and apply a drop of peppermint oil to your bracelet. Make sure you dilute it with carrier oil, as its one of those oils that burn skin on direct contact. We have one that we have tested on ourselves, its our Throat chakra oil, it contains peppermint oil, a little bit of tea tree oil, and its mixed with coconut oil so that it doesn't burn you. Add as many drops of this mix as you like, depending on the intensity you need and the beads will carry the scent as you go through your basic routine. As you brush your teeth, get dressed, drink your coffee or eat breakfast, your body will be absorbing the oil and getting energized. Since it takes around 30 minutes for essential oils to “kick in,” you’ll be ready to go (physically and mentally) by the time you’re supposed to be at the gym! Problem solved.

#2 It can help you maintain energy during the workout

Did you know that citrus essential oils can help you when you’re starting to feel your energy drain? They’re the go-to oil for an energy boost. Sometimes all you need during a tough work out is a little something to keep you going and that’s where your aromatherapy bracelet comes in strong. Aromatherapy jewelry is awesome because you can wear it and use it while you work out. Just put a few drops on your favorite lava rock bracelet, sniff, and let it do the work for you. While you’re hustling and staying healthy, your diffuser bracelet will keep you feeling energized.

#3 They can help you soothe your sore muscles

No one said working out was easy! Sore muscles are part of the game when you get in shape. If you’re getting plenty of rest and relaxation, and you’re icing it, but you’d still like some relief from your stiffness and soreness, try essential oils. Seriously, why wouldn’t you at this point? They work for everything else! When you rub essential oils on the skin, it has a warming effect that’s perfect for blood circulation. It’ll help fight muscle pain after a particularly long workout that you might have had. The top oils for your sore muscles are lavender, black pepper, arnica, frankincense, helichrysum, and peppermint. All of these are known for reducing swelling, improving blood circulation, reducing stress and anxiety, decreasing muscle spasms, and inducing a calming response of the nervous system.
