Enhance Your Exercise Routine with Essential Oils

Exercise is an important part of overall wellness. Whether you love to work out daily or simply enjoy some light weekly activity, you can further enhance your exercise experience using essential oils! Many doTERRA essential oils can be used during exercise, but three of our top favourites have topical and aromatic benefits that can complement any workout or exercise routine, no matter the simplicity or difficulty. Working out doesn’t have to be a chore, especially when you include Deep Blue, Lemongrass, and Cypress essential oils.

Pre- and Post-Workout Massages


If you’re lacking motivation or just need a quick boost before your workout, a pre-workout massage with essential oils is what you need. Combine a few drops of Lemongrass essential oil with Cypress essential oil and gently rub on pulse points and other desired areas for a refreshing, energizing aroma to help get you motivated and ready to start your workout. To reduce skin sensitivity, dilute with Fractionated Coconut Oil or other carrier oil before applying topically.


After giving your body the exercise it needs, reward it further with a post-workout massage using Deep Blue essential oil. This proprietary blend is famed for its topical soothing properties and energizing aroma, perfect to use after a strenuous activity. Simply apply a few drops on targeted areas and gently rub into the skin for an invigorating aroma and cooling sensation on the skin.

To enhance the reach of Deep Blue oil and protect sensitive skin, dilute one drop of Deep Blue oil with 10 drops of Fractionated Coconut Oil and enjoy your well-deserved massage.

Elevate Your At-Home Workout

If the gym isn’t your thing or there’s not one available in your area, exercising at home is still a suitable option. Elevate your at-home workout routine by incorporating the pleasant aromas of Deep Blue, Lemongrass, and Cypress essential oils. Simply choose the desired location in your home to complete your workout and bring along the oils and your favourite diffuser.

  • Add a couple drops of Lemongrass oil and Cypress oil to your diffuser for a refreshing, uplifting aroma as you complete your workout.
  • Add a couple drops of Lemongrass and Cypress essential oils to a glass spray bottle of water and mist your mat to create an energizing atmosphere during your yoga practice.
  • For a quick, stimulating boost, grab your bottle of Deep Blue oil and inhale its cooling, rejuvenating aroma to help you keep going strong as you finish your workout.

Make your exercise routine or workout more exciting with the help of Deep Blue oil, Lemongrass oil, and Cypress oil. Each produces its own invigorating and energizing aroma that can help you push through difficult or strenuous moments, whether you’re working out at a gym or at home. When used topically, this trio of oils can enhance both your pre- and post-workout massages, helping to soothe desired areas so you can perform at your best. So get up out of your seat, grab your essential oils, and get moving!
