My Favourite Things - Essential Oils
Grapefruit & Peppermint Essential Oils
I started infusing my workout space with essential oil scents about a year ago. It has been a game changer for me. Grapefruit and peppermint are my favourites. They are an instant energy boost. After choosing between the two and dropping them into my air diffuser, my workout space permeates with these revitalizing scents. But the benefits are not just aromatic.
According to an expert in the field, energy promoting oils include citrus scents like grapefruit and sweet orange. They stimulate the area of our brain that affects our happiness. As well, peppermint and eucalyptus help to promote deep breathing. This breathing increases our alertness during exercise as we take in more oxygen - a key ingredient to an empowering workout.
Let this be a new addition to your home workout space to help you maximize your glow.
