sore muscles 2Does your circulation struggle with heat? If you’re sorer than a triathlete after a big race or puffed up like an angry blow-fish, why not try using essential oils that increase circulation and reduce inflammation. These oils can be added to almond oil or grape seed oil to make massage oils and be rubbed into problem areas. Basil is one of the key essential oils for healing muscle inflammation—yes, the same herb you put on your pasta! Basil oil can be placed directly on the problem area or diffused. Eucalyptus oil is the perfect “anti” oil, working as an anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory agent. If you dilute it 50:50 in water and then diffuse it, the oil will even help to kill airborne bacteria. Like many other oils, a few drops can also be rubbed directly into the problem area. Just the tiniest drop of eucalyptus always makes me feel like I’ve wandered into the most luxurious of spas and am being waited on hand and foot.
