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.

Jojoba Seed Oil has many skin care benefits. Why is Jojoba good for the skin? Let's learn more about this amazing ingredient.

 

What is Jojoba Seed Oil

First of all, the name Jojoba Oil is a little bit misleading. Jojoba Oil is not really
an oil in the traditional sense. It is actually a wax ester. In science speak, a wax ester is an ester of a fatty acid and a fatty alcohol. There are many naturally occurring wax esters. Beeswax, for example, is comprised of around 75% wax esters. Jojoba Seed Oil is 97% wax esters.

Mother's Day is not about big ticket gifts or an elaborate arrangement sent from the florist. The greatest gift you can give a person is your gratitude. Making someone feel loved and appreciated is not something that can be ordered online and shipped through Amazon Prime. Don’t wait for “later” or a “more convenient time” to show your gratitude for the people you love.

What can you do? We have some ideas that we would like to share today.
