3 Essential Oils to Enhance your Workout

by Jodi Cohen

I’ve always been an exercise junkie, either running, biking, swimming or doing yoga 6-7 days a week. I love it and it feels good for my body, but I also realize that if I am not careful, it can be another stressor to the body, possibly overtaxing or depleting limited energy reserves.  So I am careful to support my workouts with good nutrition and essential oils. Enhance your workout with the following Essential Oils.

 

Enhance your Workout

Adrenal™: The adrenals sit on top of the kidneys in the low back and help determine and regulate the body’s energy levels by secreting key hormones that regulate energy production and storage. The adrenal hormones are primarily designed to provide back-up energy in stressful situations.  All too often, pushing our bodies too hard or too fast during exercise can register as a stressful experience.  When are adrenals are taxed, either from mental, physical or emotional stress, it can trickle down to poor support of the muscles supporting  the pelvis and lower back, leading to low back pain. Applying Vibrant Blue Oils Adrenal™ blend over the adrenal glands (low back, one fist length up from the 12th rib) can help to balance and support energy and reduce or avoid low back pain during workouts.

 

Lymph™: Getting the lymphatic system moving is one of the best ways to optimize energy during a workout.  It helps me run faster, lung deeper and general feel better.  Unlike the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system does not have its own central pump — it only moves as the muscles squeeze it along. If the lymphatic system becomes stagnant, waste and excessive toxins accumulate, impacting immunity.   When you move the lymphatic system and accumulated toxins along with you, you feel lighter, stronger and healthier.  Applying Vibrant Blue Oils Lymph™ before exercise to the lymph nodes — sides of neck, under the arms and around bikini line (where your leg creases when you lift it) – helps  increase circulation of the lymphatic system to support immunity and optimize your energy during workouts.

Breathe™: A key component of exercise is our breathing.  We naturally work to breathe deeper and faster during a workout to take in more oxygen to feed the body and the brain.  In addition to relieving congestion, colds, flu, coughs and sore throats, Vibrant Blue Oils Breathe™ blend opens and soothes the airways to allow for enhanced oxygen intake during exercise. To apply, dilute with another oil, like coconut oil, and rub 1- 2 drops topically on throat and  upper chest. This oil can feel hot, so we do not recommend applying it undiluted to the skin.

 

I hope that these oils help enhance your workout!
