Best Essential Oils for sore muscles after a workout during Perimenopause and Menopause

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.

doTERRA Ice Blue (Deep Blue) Rub is a rich, topical cream infused with the Ice Blue/Deep Blue Soothing Blend of CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils. (It’s known as Deep Blue in the USA and Ice Blue in Australia)

Formulated with a proprietary blend of natural plant extracts and other powerful ingredients, Deep Blue Rub provides a comforting sensation of cooling and warmth to problem areas. Made with Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, and Osmanthus, Deep Blue Rub is an essential addition to your bathroom cabinet and gym bag.

Plus it’s non-greasy!

Ice Blue Essential Oil and Rub

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

Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex is available to purchase from the USA only. Make sure you click “I want products that are shipped from the United States (NFR)” when you shop. If you choose the USA, you will have access to a wider range of products in this range, as pictured below, including the 1 Litre pump pack which is fantastic to share amongst sporting teams, and the samples.

The cooling essential oil spray for hot flushes you can’t live without during menopause

hot flushes

The cooling essential oil spray you can’t live without during menopause

Let’s face it, perimenopause and menopause aren’t exactly the most glamorous times in our life. It’s a time of secret women’s business and many women enter it feeling alone, clueless and powerless.  It’s time that stopped!

I want to share with you the secrets of menopause and empower you to take back your life, and give birth to the new you!

If you can identify with this poem, then you are going to love the cooling essential oil spray that I show you in this blog.

Menopause

The mother of all wake-up calls
After the hormones wear off like party drugs
The house is rewired
By a blind and maybe drunk electrician
Sparks are flying
The thermostat’s out of whack
It’s like living in a Bulgarian hotel

Still. The craziest hotel has its dance band.
I see you there in your little black dress
And little black mood.
You got back from Bangkok with new eyes,
just in time for your first granddaughter
to be born with your old eyes.
You can now turn your head side to side
Say no in several languages.
Oh, the forgotten pleasure
Of not pleasing.
You who skipped Ivanhoe and parallelograms
take night classes and sit up front.
Making yourself sharp and sure for
that woman in the glass.  

The to-do list has changed
Do become self-basting.
Do buy yourself roses
And hang one over an ear.
Don’t  finish books if you don’t like ‘em
Don’t examine thighs in tooth-paste flecked glass
Do stroll in the dark up Kilimanjaro
Write books start tea shops paint wild canvases?  

  — Adair Lara

Cooling Spray for Hot Flushes

Essential oils are a wonderful and natural way to empower you to manage your hot flushes.  They work with the endocrine system and the limbic system to help you with both your emotions about the flushes and also cool your body temperature down.  The secret sauce is in the blending and use of both the essential oils that will help the physical symptoms and then those that help the emotional side. Clever huh?

The simplest method is to set yourself up with a kit of essential oils, and make a few hot flush sprays and keep them in your handbag, kitchen and office, or wherever you might need them. A glass spray bottle can be easily purchased online or at a local eco store. The oils you need are Clary Sage, Peppermint, Lavender and Ylang Ylang Essential Oil. These essential oils are mixed with fractionated coconut oil and glycerine and then added to distilled water in a glass bottle. Simply spray all over or wherever needed when a hot flush strikes. The wonderful thing about this is that the spray acts instantaneously, cooling you down as well as smelling amazing!

In addition the essential oils in the kit are so versatile you can use them for countless other situations in your life. For example- did you know that Ylang Ylang can be used in hair preparations to promote thick, shiny, lustrous hair?

Once you have purchased the essential oils I will send you a welcoming email which has the recipe for the spray and also a welcome kit in the mail.

Want more insight into the secret sauce ingredients?

Here’s a little more about the essential oils needed for the spray:

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil:

She’s so delicate and beautiful, the Ylang Ylang Flower from Madagascar.  Used historically for skin treatments, to soothe bites, and to regulate heartbeat and respiration,  she’s known as the oil of sensuality and intimacy and the oil of the inner child.  Ylang Ylang reconnects you with the pure and simple ways of your heart and restores your childlike sense of wonder, and is a powerful remedy for releasing emotional trauma and bottled up emotions such as anger and sadness.

During perimenopause and menopause, many women, who have not previously experienced a dark night of the soul, experience great irritation, frustration and anger and also relive traumatic memories, as if from nowhere. It’s all part of nature’s way, as our body releases our focus on nurturing and birthing others, and allows us to then cleanse, and restore ourselves, so that we are ready to create and give birth to our new future.

Ylang Ylang is connected to the heart chakra.

Menopause may be the end of once cycle, but it is the beginning of a much more wise and exciting cycle, if you chose to embrace it.

Remember,

“You have within you, the power to create a life of joy, abundance and health, or you have the same ability to create a life filled with stress, fatigue and disease.  With very few exceptions, the choice is yours.”

Christiane Northrup MD.

Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint essential oil is a fabulous oil to use during perimenopause and menopause as it relaxes your muscles and regulates the temperature in your body. It’s also wonderful for mental clarity and head tension. Emotionally, Peppermint Essential Oil is a heart chakra oil and is the oil of a buoyant heart, inspiration and self-satisfaction. When inhaled deeply, it opens the airways, and allows anxiety to be released.

hot flush

Lavender Essential Oil:

Lavender essential oil is the oil of communication, expression and release.  When used in a hot flushes spray it has a calming effect and creates a sense of well being. It can be used like spearmint essential oil for expression, which many women may find particularly helpful. During menopause and perimenopause many women find their significant relationships undergoing significant transformations. Anger that may have been bottled, and words and thoughts that have been repressed so as not to “rock the boat” may come spilling out. It may feel as though you just can’t hold back any longer.

Lavender helps reassure you so that you don’t feel insecure when expressing your thoughts and feelings. It encourages open and honest communication.  Sometimes having these conversations can provoke head tension, and lavender can assist in reducing this.

hot flushes

Clary Sage Essential Oil

Clary Sage Essential oil is the oil of clarity, vision and intuition. She helps you see through your limiting beliefs to adopts a new perspective of life, and opens you to new possibilities and opportunities.

Connected to the brow chakra and sacral chakra it is an especially helpful essential oil for women at all stages of their life including the onset of menstrual cycle, fertility, childbirth, and the coming of wisdom with peri and menopause.

Spiritually she teaches us how to use our divinely given gifts and clarify our spiritual vision. Use before bed to connect your dream state to the spirit world.

Talking about essential oils, is not complete without an exploration of their origin. Understanding how essential oils are sourced, gives us a wonderful insight into how nature created these magical oils and the importance of understanding the power of our purchasing dollars in uplifting the lives of others.  doTERRA sources Pink Pepper from two locations: from Kenya in Africa and Peru. Two sourcing models are used- traditional sourcing and co-impact sourcing.

In my own words- the reason I purchase doTERRA essential oils is that I understand that the oils come from trusted sources, they are not just purchased bulk from a middleman who bought it off another middleman. I can trust the quality and purity of the essential oils, because doTERRA goes to the original source, and develops relationships with the people who are actually growing the plants that are distilled, to make the essential oils.

In doTERRA’s own words:

Co-Impact Sourcing is an initiative that seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. doTERRA is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.

Additionally, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® helps support development projects in sourcing communities. Projects include schools, health clinics, improved infrastructure and clean water systems.

In the video below, you will see how the simple act of being able to harvest Pink Peppercorns has helped two special women provide food for their children, when all hope had been lost after the death of their husbands.

What comes to your mind when you think of Cinnamon? Warm freshly baked donuts sprinkled with Cinnamon and sugar? or do you smell Christmas baking?  If you’ve ever tried freshly grated cinnamon instead of the powdered variety, then you know that there is a difference in potency and flavour. So too, the difference between Cinnamon and Cinnamon Essential Oil.

The essential oil is steam distilled from the bark, making it super concentrated and potent. It’s not an oil that you want to muck around with, as it is hot and can cause skin irritation. However, treated with care, this essential oil packs a punch.

The best part is that Cinnamon has amazing metabolic properties, so when you use it in your cooking, you win!

Emotional benefits of Cinnamon Essential oil

According to the book “Emotions and Essential Oils” Cinnamon is the oil of Sexual Harmony, as it “supports the reproductive system and helps heal sexual issues”.

“It assists individuals in accepting their body and embracing their physical attractiveness. Cinnamon dispels fear of rejection and nurtures healthy sexuality. It rekindles sexual energies where there has been repression, trauma or abuse. It can also bring clarity to souls who struggle with their sexual identity. Cinnamon also assists individuals in relationships where insecurities are shown by jealousy or control. It encourages the soul to let go of control and allow others to be free. Cinnamon can nurture strong relationships based on mutual love and respect. Where there are other insecurities covered by pretense, facade and pride, Cinnamon invites individuals to be honest and vulnerable, thereby allowing true intimacy to emerge”.
