#31 drops of oil – October 22
Exercise is so important to maintain (or begin!) through this upcoming holiday season that might be stressful, busy, and emotional … and might involve greater food intake!
Essential oils can provide vital support for your body before, during and after your workout or athletic events.
I am not an athlete by any stretch of the imagination, but I participated in a really awesome webinar taught by coaches and experienced runners and triathletes -- and I learned a lot!
Tip # 22: Use essential oils before, during and after your workout or athletic event!
Here are the top recommendations I found …
Pre-Workout or Event: Respiratory & Immune Health
You don’t want to get start feeling under the weather or have seasonal reactions just prior or during your event/workout.
During Workout or Event: Energy & Focus
Using these will help motivate you and extend your stamina.
Post Workout or Event: Rest & Recovery
These oils are great to use after exercise. Dilute with FCO and rub on muscles and joints, paying careful attention to sore or tense areas. You can try these one at a time or layer one on top of the other for better effect. Also using a warm compress after applying the oils helps.
For runners and others to prepare the night before an event – a good night’s sleep is so important! Find a sleeping blend that works for you. Vetiver, Serenity Calming Blend and Lavender were highly recommended.
To support leg muscles:
For head or muscle tension:
If using shared equipment in a gym or shower/changing room facilities
Healing Bath: 4 drops Lavender, 2 drops Marjoram, 4 drops Lemongrass in one cup of Epsom salts.
Soothe Achy Muscles: to 1 teaspoon of Coconut oil add 4 drops Marjoram, 4 drops Lavender, 4 drops Thyme, 4 drops Wintergreen.
