Sometimes the hardest part of exercise is just to get going. I have this problem especially in the winter when it is cold and I would rather snuggle up with a kindle and read than head to the gym. Cuz, if you haven't noticed, or you live in Southern California, it is cold out!! One way to get motivated is to simply open a bottle of essential oil and smell!
- Citrus Blends
- Grounding Blend
Next, take some of that citrus oil or peppermint and rub a bit on your chest. It will help get the blood flowing and oxygen building. If you need a little more boost, try a drop of peppermint on the tongue. Or add lemon and peppermint to your water. It gets the oxygen flowing.
Heading to yoga? Try some frankincense or sandalwood oil to help you remain grounded, reduce stress and improve, well, your balance. Of course, all the essential oils in the world, would not allow me to get into this position, ever!!
When exercising, your body relies on the circulatory system to transport oxygen. There are essential oils that help with this oxygenation process, giving your more energy. Oxygen stimulating oils include, but are certainly not limited to:
- Black Pepper
Where there is swelling involved, a cold compress is best. But to improve the look of this shiner, these oils may help improve appearance.
- Deep Blue
Do you regularly incorporate essential oils into your workout? What has been the result?
