The Essential Oils You Need to Take Your Ride to the Next Level
July 25, 2017
eady to take your ride to the next level? Our friends at Saje are here to help. Kickstart your class and help your muscles recover with powerful plants like peppermint, eucalyptus and basil.
Essential oils are a 100-percent plant-based way to up your workout routine: They get you up for the early class (no caffeine required!), refresh your gym gear on-the-go and help you ease that post-class burn the natural way.
Here are four top tips from the expert team at Saje Natural Wellness for adding essential oils to your wellness routine:
1. Get a natural boost in the morning. Your alarm goes off at 5:30AM, it’s normal to feel a little groggy. Instead of reaching for coffee, get a plant-based boost by spritzing an invigorating blend of lemon, rosemary, and peppermint to wake up your senses. Keep Saje Natural Wellness’s Energy Revitalizing Mist beside your bed, and before your eyes even open, mist over your head three times and breathe deeply. Good morning, world.
2. Refresh your gear. If you’re making a mad dash from class to the office with little time to cool off, try misting Yoga Mat Spray in your shoes and gym bag before you take off. Cleansing orange, spearmint and patchouli essential oils will instantly freshen any sweaty gear. To cool down your body, mist the refreshing blend of eucalyptus, peppermint and basil in Saje’s Cool Spray on your arms, legs, chest and back.
3. Pep up your prep time. We know the feeling: You’ve had a long day at the office and you’re struggling to stay motivated long enough to squeeze in an evening session. While you’re prepping to get out the door, roll the invigorating power of Peppermint Halo Oil Blend onto your legs for a cooling, tingling effect that will perk up your muscles, re-energize you and add a pep to your step.
4. Post-ride relief. You crushed your ride – now it’s time to give your hard-working muscles the support they deserve. The same herbal blast in Peppermint Halo that helped you get out the door is also your go-to once you’ve changed out of your workout clothes and need some cooling refreshment for overworked muscles. Roll on Peppermint Halo with Pain Release, a topical analgesic essential oil blend that will bring relief to aching muscles and joints. To help your body relax even more and get you set for a restful sleep, try soaking in a warm bath with a soothing blend of Epsom salts, eucalyptus, and lavender in Après Sport Bath Salts, then smooth on Muscle Melt Comforting Body Butter to replenish moisture after sweating it out.
