Essential Oils for Athletes

We talk all the time about essential oils to keep you healthy, help you when your under the weather or not feeling well.....but did you know that they are incredible for athletes?  Even Olympic Athletes use doTERRA!!!!

I wanted to take a little time today to highlight some of the best essential oils for pre and post workout.  I hope you enjoy.

Deep Blue Rub

We cant talk about working out and not talk about Deep Blue! doTERRA Deep Blue Rub is a rich, topical cream infused with the Deep Blue Soothing Blend of CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils. Formulated with a proprietary blend of natural plant extracts and other powerful ingredients, Deep Blue Rub provides a comforting sensation of cooling and warmth to problem areas.

I recommend applying Deep Blue to your muscles and joints, especially the ones that give you grief both before and after a workout.

 

Open Your Airways

Before working out I always recommend taking 1-2 drops of either Peppermint or Breathe in your hands, taking a few deep breathes to open your airways and then applying the essential oil to your chest to continue to open your airways.

 

Re-hydrate

After your workout adding Lemon to your water helps to flush the body of toxins and re-hydrate you.  Add 1-2 drops for every 12 ounces of water and enjoy.

 

Muscle Recovery

There are a few essential oils other than Deep Blue I really like to post work out recovery.  These can be used in any combination to help support increased circulation, decrease muscle tension and support muscle recovery.  Lemongrass, white fir, wintergreen, frankincense.  I like applying Lemongrass and white fir to my calves and quads and taking a drop of Frankincense under my tongue.

 

Energy

Feel like you need more energy?  doTERRA's Mito 2 Max is a great option for natural energy without the jitters.  It is is a proprietary formula of standardized plant extracts and metabolic cofactors that support healthy cellular energy production. Mito2Max supports optimal mitochondrial function, aerobic capacity, and stamina naturally without the use of harmful stimulants. Use Mito2Max as a healthy, long-term alternative to caffeinated drinks and supplements for increased energy and vitality. Take it daily or before a workout or sporting event.
