Working out has multiple benefits and when done right, you’ll see improvements in your health and in your physique. Today, there are a lot of brands that have supplements for the body. Some of these can be harmful to the body while some can also be beneficial.

However, the best supplements for the body are those that are made from natural products. This includes essential oils. There are oils that help energize and make each workout better. They can pump you up and ready for another day. If you want to know the best essential oils for workout, read on.

Lemon Essential Oil

Lots of health experts suggest drinking lemon water for that extra vitamin boost. The same goes with the essential oil. You can use it to detoxify your body while helping your immune system repair itself as doing cardio may exhaust you. It’s a natural “upper” that can help you feel better even when you’re out of the gym. Lemon essential oil can also combat Athlete’s foot and keep you hydrated.*

Since lemon is energizing, you can add lemon essential oil to your diffuser while working out. You can also add Simply Earth’s Energy Boost Essential Oil Blend to maximize your fitness routine.

Peppermint Essential Oil

Another one of the best essential oils for workout is Peppermint!

There are some days we lose focus on our workouts. We’d rather stay in the locker room and go through our Instagram feed. Let’s be honest, this happens quite a lot – but, with the help of peppermint essential oil, staying focused during a workout is easier. It also helps aid in digestion as well as assist sore muscles during stretching.* The refreshing scent is definitely a big bonus too.

After your workout, your joints might feel a bit sore. You can put some peppermint oil with lavender oil on them (don’t forget to use a carrier oil when doing so, as peppermint is a potential skin irritant!). It will feel like a nice ice bath minus getting wet and cold. It’s also a good “energizer”. No, you don’t need to ingest them. A few whiffs of this minty essential oil should give you a boost.*

Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Eucalyptus‘ soothing scent is just the beginning. This essential oil is great to use prior to your workout. It can help you boost your energy and not feel sluggish. Eucalyptus Essential Oil is also known to be a stimulant for blood circulation that increases brain power. In some schools, they use this oil to help improve student performance.  It’s also a deodorizer and can help you keep bad odor at bay.*

You can also use the eucalyptus essential oil to soothe sore muscles by making your own rub. In a small bowl, add ½ cup of coconut oil, 2 teaspoons of beeswax, 5 drops of camphor oil, 5 drops of peppermint oil and 5 drops of eucalyptus oil. Mix them together. To use it, get a small amount and rub it on the painful area. You’ll feel relieved after!

This recipe is safe to use around children 10+.

Do not diffuse this blend in close proximity to dogs or cats as the essential oils can cause irritation. For more information on diffusing around dogs check out this blog post, for cats check out this  blog post.

Never ingest any essential oil, even if it’s generally regarded as safe. For more information on why we don’t ingest essential oils, check out this blog post
