Now that spring is right around the corner, this month I want to focus on using essential oils to help us reach our PEAK PERFORMANCE! It’s time to take those simple steps towards feeling like our healthiest and best selves.
Regardless of your level of athletic ability, I am sure you are always looking for ways to optimize your results. Whether it is incorporating a creative nutritional protocol, starting a new fitness regimen, or utilizing every resource available to reach the next level of performance.
Essential oils are powerful, useful tools for all athletes. No matter your expertise or skill level, there is an essential oil waiting to provide you extremely beneficial support.
1. Clean – One of my favorite (and easiest) ways to clean yoga mats, weights, and gym equipment is with OnGuard Sanitizing Spray!
2. Hydrate – You can also flush out toxins from your body by adding 1-2 drops of Lemon essential oil to your water which tastes great!
4. Control – If you need help managing your appetite between meals you must check out the Slim and Sassy Metabolic Blend. This is a life-changing essential oil designed to help boost your metabolism and manage hunger cravings!
5. Post Workout – Keep a shaker and a scoop of Slim and Sassy TrimShake (Vanilla) in your bag, add water to the shaker with the protein and enjoy a nutritious meal on-to-go. Also comes in chocolate!
6. Soreness – You should always have these products handy so that you can rub them on whatever part of your body is in need — Deep Blue Roll-On,Deep Blue Rub, Lemongrass essential oil, and Marjoram essential oil.
7. Breathe – Inhale Breathe Respiratory Blend or run a drop or two on your chest to maintain airways before, during, or after a workout.
8. Endurance – Try Mito2Max Energy and Stamina Complex daily to take your endurance to the next level naturally without the use of harmful stimulants.
Many of the challenges related to physical health start with the adrenal glands which many consider to be the stress management centers of our bodies. The key to maintaining your Adrenal Health is most certainly rest and rejuvenation, but often our bodies need additional support which is where Frankincense can play a vital role!
Often called the “king of oils, ” Frankincense promotes feelings of peace and overall wellness when used aromatically, while topical and internal uses provide modern health benefits.
Use this oil to improve your performance:
- Rub Frankincense on your hands after a long day of training.
- Apply to the bottoms of feet to promote feelings of relaxation and to balance mood.
- Take one to two drops in a veggie capsule to support healthy cellular function.
- Also, try Frankincense essential oils during post workout for muscle tension.
And lastly, I know I mentioned this one already above, but Deep Blue truly is essential to your gym bag and seriously a game changer when it comes to your physical health. Deep Blue is formulated with a proprietary blend of natural plant extracts and other powerful ingredients that provide a comforting sensation of cooling and warmth to problem areas.
