Essential Oils to Soothe Tired Muscles

January 13, 2017

Are you one of the many people out there whose resolution for the New Year was to join the gym and get fit, chances are your muscles are tired and sore. Many of you have also been out there shoveling piles upon piles of snow -- that also can wreak havoc on your muscles and cause soreness and general discomfort.

Seed Therapeutic Body Oil

If you haven't tried Seed Therapeutic Blend Body Oil, you are missing out on one of my favorite oils with the benefits of aromatherapy. 

First of all,  if you are new to our oil mists, this is a truly light oil. It isn't going to leave a film on your skin. You will love how it sinks right in, leaving your skin feeling like silk. 

Earlier I mentioned tired, achy muscles. There's a reason. The 100% pure essential oils in Therapeutic Blend Body Oil all serve a purpose.

The benefits of clove essential oil 

On New Year's Eve, I accidentally bit into the pit of a Greek olive and cracked a portion of a molar. It was uncomfortable and I knew that my dentist would not be reopening until January 3. I went to the grocery store and asked the pharmacist what might help and she said that many people swear by clove oil in the little dental repair kits. It quickly, but I was not surprised given that products with clove oil always seem to help me if I have achy shoulders or lower back. 

  • Clove has a warming sensation to provide temporary relief of muscle aches and pains. 
  • Clove is often recommended by holistic practitioners to help with joint pain and swelling because of its anti-inflammatory benefits.

The benefits of peppermint essential oil 

Distilled from peppermint leaves, flowers, and buds, 100% pure peppermint essential oil (Mentha Piperita) features a minty, refreshing aroma that may help soothe the symptoms of tired, sore muscles.
  • There is natural menthol in peppermint to provide skin with cooling sensation.
  • Do you have a headache? Researchers at Germany's University of Kiel studied a group of headache sufferers and determined that peppermint can help alleviate headache symptoms. Similar results were indicated in an article published in American Family Medicine.

The benefits of ginger essential oil 

When it comes to achy muscles, we love ginger! Benefits aside, it smells delicious with its spicy and warm aroma and hint of woody and peppery notes.

  • Ginger may alleviate the pain associated with arthritis. In fact, the Arthritis Foundation mentions that ginger has "anti-inflammatory properties similar to ibuprofen and COX-2 inhibitors such as celecoxib (Celebrex)." There have been several other studies conducted and papers written in scientific journals discussing ginger's impact on conditions such as osteoarthritis.

The Skin Care Benefits of Green Tea
The Skin Care Benefits of Green Tea

August 13, 2018

Green Tea is a powerhouse antioxidant which has been shown to significantly promote collagen synthesis. It may also help to slow down the skin glycation process.

Choosing body care products formulated with Green Tea can help minimize the signs of skin aging caused by dietary indiscretions such as excess sugar consumption, which causes skin glycation. What is glycation? Simply put, it is the process of sugar proteins damaging the collagen and elastin in the skin. Too much sugar ages your skin, according to scientific research.

Green Tea is protective.

The EGCG in Green Tea also helps protect against free radicals. Free radicals not only impact your health, but they negatively impact your skin. UV damage, smoke and other pollutants can wreak havoc on your skin, accelerating the aging process and damaging cells. This damage causes collagen and elastin to break down, making you look older, as we just mentioned with the glycation process.
