Pre-Workout Power

  • Sharpen Your Focus with Peppermint: A study published in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) research database, NCBI, found that inhaling Peppermint oil during exercise can significantly improve mental focus and reduce fatigue.[1] Diffuse Edens Garden's invigorating Peppermint essential oil before your yoga session or weightlifting to sharpen your concentration and help you master those challenging poses or lifts.

  • Energize Your Mind and Body with Citrus: Research suggests that citrus essential oils like Lemon and Grapefruit can elevate mood and increase energy levels. A 2023 study published in the NCBI showed that inhaling Lemon oil improved cognitive function and alertness in study participants.[2] Create a motivating inhaler blend with 2 drops of Edens Garden's Yuzu (a type of citrus) essential oil, 1 drop of Bergamot Mint, and 1 drop of Gingergrass. This invigorating blend will uplift your mood and energize you to conquer your workout.

Mid-Workout Boost

  • Breathe Easier with Eucalyptus or Peppermint: During intense exercise, your breathing quickens. Edens Garden's Eucalyptus and Peppermint essential oils possess natural decongestant properties. A 2020 NCBI study demonstrated that Eucalyptus oil effectively opened airways and improved breathing ease.[3] Apply a diluted roll-on of Eucalyptus or Peppermint oil to your chest or temples to open your airways and allow for smoother, deeper breaths throughout your workout.

Post-Workout Recovery

  • Fight Germs with Rosalina: Gyms can be breeding grounds for bacteria. Keep your workout free of environmental distresses with Edens Garden's Rosalina essential oil, known for its cleansing properties. Simply add a few drops to a tissue with some water and wipe down equipment before use.

  • Soothe Sore Muscles with Muscle Relief Blend: After a tough workout, muscle soreness is a common foe. Edens Garden's Muscle Relief essential oil blend combines powerful essential oils like Lavender and Wintergreen to soothe discomfort and promote faster recovery. Mix a few drops with a carrier oil like Jojoba or Grapeseed oil and massage it gently into sore muscles for relief.
