My Workout Friends

by Carrie Raab on August 31, 2015

Meet My Workout Friends!

My Workout Friends- for daily activities by Young Living Oil LadyMy Workout Friends Are:

1. Wintergreen Essential Oil

2. Ortho Ease Massage Oil

3. Cool Azul Sports Gel

4. Deep Relief Essential Oil

I am finding myself using these more and more as I intensify my workouts. I exercise 5 days a week, but I have begun doing 2 a days and/or increasing my strength training. I have had good cardio endurance practically all my life and muscular endurance as well. However, with lots of sports injuries, resulting in 5 knee surgeries, a broken toe and toe surgery on the opposite foot of the broken toe, I have not kept my strength training up to the level that I could and should. I have used low weights with high reps. I challenge myself, but not to the level I could and should.

Well, in the last year, I set a goal for myself that I would increase weights and “see” what happens. It has been great.. however,  in the last three weeks, I have re challenged myself and have REALLY begun to up the strength training. I am loving it! My muscles are too! They are ‘waking up’ and my normal muscle soreness, which I typically do have with my activity level, has gone to a whole new level of soreness. Yippee! :) They say ‘NO PAIN NO GAIN!’

With the increase in my strength training, these bad boys have been my constant companion. Do you know them? Let me introduce you to them all.

1. Wintergreen Essential Oil – oh you will love the aroma of this oil! Just pop open the bottle and WOW! You can smell it from so far away. It has a refreshing, minty, and sweet aroma. This stimulating and invigorating scent makes it an ideal addition to lotions and ointments that are applied after activity. You can apply it directly to area of concern or add it as mentioned above. Wintergreen includes the naturally occurring constituent methyl salicylate- go and do some research on it! Wintergreen oil is an important ingredient in Deep Relief Roll-On, Ortho Ease and Ortho Sport Massage Oils, PanAway essential oil blend, and BLM supplement.

Can you tell I really like this oil.. it is in two of my other workout friends I use- Deep Relief and Ortho Ease.

2. Ortho Ease Massage Oil– I really like using this and just pouring it, haha, all over my body. It is great for soothing tired bodies. Well, yes, that would be me! This massage oil soothes and warms tired and stressed bodies, helping to combat the damaging effects of everyday activities. With a calming blend of YL essential oils, naming a few such as Wintergreen, Peppermint, Lemongrass, and Marjoram, Ortho Ease will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.

3. Cool Azul Sports Gel– This is a new product released at the 2015 convention. No matter your training or fitness level, Cool Azul Sports Gel is a perfect choice to use before or after physical activity. It is formulated with 10% essential oils and the lead ingredient is aloe vera, versus water, which most other sports gels are mainly comprised of.

4. Deep Relief Essential Oil Roll On– is a Young Living-exclusive blend of pure essential oils formulated to use for massage after activity. Peppermint, Wintergreen, Copaiba, Helichrysum, Dorado Azul, and other essential oils each play an integral role in this blend. Deep Relief Roll-On has an invigorating and energizing scent, and offers a convenient method of application, the roller fitment roller ball roll on for forehead, temples, and neck anytime, anywhere it’s needed. I have been rubbing it on my low back and shoulders after exercise. It feels great! Smells great too! :)

What are your favorite exercise-workout friends? Do we have friends in common? Tell me what you like and use. Maybe I need to meet some of your friends.

Enjoy your workouts! Stay active! Hydrate well. Does a body good!
