How to Naturally Calm Sore Muscles After Your Big Workout

How to Naturally Calm Sore Muscles After Your Big Workout

When you’re working out, you’re in the moment. You’re feeling the power and enjoying the adrenaline. However, the next day is a different story. It’s pretty normal for you to wake up sore and stiff after a challenging (or even light) workout. We hear a lot about muscle pain, but we have the tips and tricks you need to get back on your feet.

Here are five ways to prevent the soreness and heal it quickly:

1. Stretch Well

Stretching is an oft-overlooked aspect of exercise. No matter how you eat and live, your muscles need to be stretched. It’s best to stretch them before and after each workout as well as before bed.

2. Drink Water

Muscles need water. Dehydrated muscles lead to cramps and post-workout soreness. Hydrate before exercise, during, and especially afterward.

3. Calcium/Magnesium

This is a supplement you should look into. Calcium with magnesium feeds the muscles with what they need to grow, contract, and relax. Taking this before will aid your sleep and avoid nighttime cramping.

4. Limit Caffeine and Alcohol

Caffeine and alcohol dehydrate your muscles and deplete your body of calcium and magnesium. If you do have one of the above, drink extra water and boost your vitamins/minerals intake.

5. Heat and Eucalyptus

High-quality, non-diluted, unprocessed Eucalyptus essential oil (like our pharmaceutical-grade Eucalyptus) has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties that make it a great option when treating sore or over-exercised muscles. It can relax stiff muscles, allowing for pain relief and ease in range of motion and muscle movement. The best way to enjoy Eucalyptus is in the steam of a shower or in the heat of the sauna.

Here are some ways to apply Eucalyptus to your sore muscles:

  • Add 3-5 drops of straight Eucalyptus oil directly onto sore muscles. Slowly massage into skin.
  • Add 15-50 drops of Eucalyptus oil to a hot bath. The heat of the water, combined with the Eucalyptus, encourages muscles to relax and reduces next-day stiffness. For additional benefits, add Epsom salts to the water.
  • The easiest option is to use our Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist and spray it into the hot steam of your shower, or into the warmth of any sauna or steam room. You’ll not only enjoy the relaxation in your muscles, but you’ll also be breathing in the anti-inflammatory properties of the eucalyptus.

Leave Soreness Behind

The body has an amazing ability to heal itself when supported well through healthy lifestyle habits. Pain in the body is also a sign of something else going on, so in addition to getting relief naturally, be sure to investigate the cause with your doctor or natural medicine practitioner.

3 Simple, Natural Tips for Menstrual Pain Relief

3 Simple, Natural Tips for Menstrual Pain Relief

No woman likes the monthly cramps their sentenced to. They come at the worst time and have a way of slowing your day and keeping you parked on the couch. All you want is relief and to get back to your life. But you have the right to find relief faster and without the extra drugs. Not all women are aware of how much power they have over their body’s health and wellness. We’re here to help you because you deserve it.

3 Tips for Reducing Your Menstrual Pain:

  1. Reduce Your Caffeine: Everybody is different, and sometimes a warm cup of coffee does just the trick. But too much caffeine is dehydrating to your body, causing circulation to slow and pain to persist. Caffeine constricts your blood levels and raises tension: so when you’re suffering from cramps, it’s important to stay hydrated. Drinking water and herbal tea instead will not only keep your flow hydrated but will also help relieve any bloating that may occur.
  2. Use Heat. Run a hot shower. Let the steam add up. And spray some of our Lavender-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist into the steam.  The cleansing effects of the oil will be heightened in the stream and permeate your bronchial passages, resulting in relaxation and a further detoxified system. The lavender acts as an anti-depressant and will release the stress you’ve built up. If you don’t have the time or energy for the hot shower, grab a hot water bottle or heating pad. They may seem old-fashioned, but they will help warm and relax the muscles in your lower abdomen. The heat relaxes the tension around your pain and helps the flow move more fluidly. If heat overwhelms you, use the oil combination mentioned below.
  3. Massage. Once the area has been warmed, take some time for a gentle massage. Use cooling massage oil, if you can. You can make your own with a blend of peppermint, ginger, lavender and fractionated coconut oil. Lavender will relax and calm you, cinnamon aids in circulation (bringing comfort), and peppermint with ginger are an excellent topical anti-inflammatory.

You may not find your menstrual pain disappearing altogether, but you will be able to function more comfortably and happily, without taking any drugs.

5 Tips to Feel More Awake in the Morning

Cold water. Immediately cleanse your face upon waking. Let the cold begin. Splash your face with as cold of water you can handle, 10 – 20 times. If you’re feeling super brave, lay with an ice pack on your eyes for 5 minutes.

Take a shower. Not just any shower, take a Eucalyptus shower. Run some hot water and spray our Menthol-Infused Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist into the steam. Breathe deep and let the menthol and Eucalyptus penetrate your lungs and skin cells for total body rejuvenation.

Caffeine. Brew up some green or black tea using 2 bags total. Once it has steeped, set aside the bags on a dish, and drink the tea. But also, you can grab those tea bags, lay down, and place them on your eyes for about 10 minutes. You’ll see some great tightening and brightening.

Lemon water. Nothing is better than drinking hot, warm, or cold lemon water in the morning. Simply slice and squeeze the lemon, add water and enjoy. This will detox your endocrine and lymphatic system for an awakening from the inside out.

Eye drops. A perfect finishing touch includes lubricating and redness-reducing eye drops. You’ll feel more wide-eyed and less bloodshot within minutes.

The Best Natural Caffeine Substitute: How Eucalyptus Helps You Stay Alert

Ok. So you’ve quit coffee. Join the rest of the headache-ridden and groggy masses making this drastic health change. But now you’re going to need something to replace that energy kick you’re used to.

You have the right to wake up and feel energized. You don’t need a pill and you don’t need another energy drink, rather a natural solution that will wake you up FAST.

Eucalyptus oil is a miracle worker you’ve got to try. Most people are familiar with the plant’s ability to ease respiratory symptoms, soothe and open the airways, but not many are familiar with its ability to wake up the senses and heighten energy.

How does Eucalyptus replace caffeine?

It feels like a shot of caffeine. The menthol content works like a vasoconstrictor, causing the cells to vibrate at a faster level, bringing more circulation and oxygen to the brain, inviting better concentration and more natural focus.

It’s invigorating. The menthol properties of eucalyptus leave a cooling sensation on the skin of the body and in the lungs. Just a few deep breaths and every cell of the body is invigorated and woken up from the inside out.

It creates relaxation and a sense of contentment. As the plant works its way into the different parts of the body, each cell is not only invigorated but the body relaxes as though it’s been to the spa. When you’re awakened and relaxed at the same time, your mind is at ease and able to function properly.

How to use Eucalyptus

One of the best ways to enjoy all the energizing benefits is to spray Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist into the steam of your shower. The steam further activates the oil and opens your pores, allowing your body to more efficiently absorb the oil.

Are you ready to live a coffee-free life? Then don’t hesitate to pick up our Eucalyptus Oil to energize your body in a healthy way.
