Ginger essential oil enjoys hot yoga and so do I. Hot yoga is right in line with ginger essential oil’s spicy, unique personality. It also has the effect of helping your muscles feel strong, loose, and relaxed. Sometimes those same muscles feel less relaxed after a good hot yoga session. Once the heat cools down, muscles can start to tighten up. Soreness and tension can creep in and make you uncomfortable.

True to its unique nature, ginger essential oil has a creative way to care for sore muscles. It makes a muscle tension inhaler—yes, an inhaler! Breathing in ginger essential oil helps you feel relaxed and uplifted, which translates to more relaxed muscles and less pain. Here’s a wonderful inhaler blend you can make for yourself:

Ginger’s Active Muscle Care Inhaler

Inhalers are fun to make! Andrea Butje from Aromahead describes the process of making one in this post from The Aromahead Blog (which has another great muscle tension inhaler blend!).

All you have to do is soak the cotton insert of the inhaler in the essential oils, load it into the inhaler sleeve, and snap it closed. You can find colorful, disposable inhalers at Fragrance World of Topeka.  Aromatics International has reusable inhalers, which are wonderful if you use your inhaler often and want to reload it with new blends but they are more expensive.
