It’s mid-January and nearly everyone has launched their fitness resolutions into full swing. Chances are your new fitness goals are also causing a few new aches and pains. Essential oils can be used to improve your workout or to ease your sore body after a workout.
This oil is great for post-workout massage. It clears the head and stimulates the senses. If you are feeling sore the morning after a tough workout, rub a base oil with a few drops of eucalyptus into sore muscles. It also has a detoxifying effect, so it is great if you are performing a cleanse as part of your new year health goals.
This oil revitalizes energy, so it is perfect when you push yourself too hard and you are exhausted by the end of the week. It is also a great oil to use right before a workout because it is stimulating and puts you in a positive, energetic mood.
Thyme is also energizing and it wards off feelings of depression. It is also a great antiseptic, so it comes in handy when you are sharing machines and weights at the public gym.
Black pepper oil is a superstar when it comes to easing aches and pains. It also helps break down fats and flush toxins. It is one of the best oils you can use in conjunction with your new fitness program.
