After a good workout or a long day spent at the computer you might feel too tired to do much. You may experience discomfort performing routine tasks due to lingering tension in your muscles. You can help yourself get back to speed with a little bit of self-care. Essential oils are highly soothing to both mind and body and can be beneficial in easing feelings of tension caused by mental, physical, or emotional exhaustion.
When you do activities that your muscles and joints are unaccustomed to, it can result in discomfort and you may wake up the next day feeling stiff. Your body will adapt to the new strain over time, but at first it can be uncomfortable.
If you experience muscle and joint discomfort, there are good ways to soothe your body. Massage can be extremely helpful in soothing the affected areas. By incorporating essential oils into massage you can experience greater relaxation.
Wintergreen and Lemongrass are both helpful when used as part of a warming, post-workout massage. Dilute them with Fractionated Coconut Oil before applying to the skin. Wintergreen is almost entirely composed of the chemical constituent methyl salicylate—commonly used in topical products to relieve occasional minor aches in muscles and joints.
