Best Essential Oils For Post-Recovery Workout
Whether you get your workout by lifting weights at the gym or performing sun salutations in your living room, essential oils can help your body recover. Applied topically or diffused, essential oils are packed with anti-inflammatory and soothing properties that can ease tight, sore muscles.
Before you begin topically applying essential oils to improve your recovery time, be sure to properly dilute with a carrier oil like Hemp Seed or Sesame. Hemp Seed is rich with vitamins and antioxidants and Sesame is highly absorbent and includes high levels of vitamin E. Add your chosen EOs and Carrier Oil to a warm bath (add Epsom Salt for extra relaxation) or simply massage the diluted oil on your problem areas.
