One of the first signs that we might be in perimenopause or menopause is the inevitable weight gain around the midriff. After fighting our pear shapes our whole lives, nature decides that it prefers apples instead.
So we haul ourselves back to the gym or sign up for pilates, or yoga or an outdoor training session.
And in an effort to shift some of that flab we might tend to exercise harder than usual to try and counter the downward decline in your metabolism.
And now you have sore muscles right?
But not just any sore muscles- they seem to be taking longer to recover after each session.
So you’re more inclined to hit the snooze button than you are to get up and train and work your way through the pain.
Which leads to a new set of complications- decrease in highly metabolically active muscle mass through disuse according to Pam Peeke,MD, MPH, FACP, best-selling author and expert on health, fitness, and nutrition
If you are looking for a natural but effective way to soothe your tired and sore muscles after exercise then essential oils are an effective way to help them recover.

Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex
Need a little extra help now that you are over 40? You may think you are as fit and agile as you were in your twenties, but your body may be starting to show signs of aging and it may take you longer to heal from injury.
Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex provides a unique blend of extracts of Indian frankincense (Boswellia serrata), along with turmeric and ginger. Indian frankincense has long been used for its soothing properties, and its use in the traditional Ayurvedic practices of India is well established.
This supplement delivers a unique and standardized Boswellia serrata extract (not an essential oil) that has been clinically studied to promote healthy mobility and function, and can provide soothing support throughout the entire body.
Like frankincense, turmeric has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic practice and is also part of the popular spice Indian curry. The science behind turmeric’s soothing role in overworked muscles and joints is now recognized by experts throughout the world.
Ginger root has also been used for centuries throughout Asia for health benefits and as a popular spice. Ginger was among the first spices brought to the New World and has long been recommended for its natural soothing benefits.
Directions for Use:
Take 2 capsules with food per day; 1 capsule in the morning and one in the evening
