Most of us could all benefit from adding a bit more exercise into our lives. But it can be so hard! We go to work, take care of our families, manage bills, and every other adult-ish task in between. Squeezing in even that half hour of exercise can be a chore. And let’s be honest, none of us want to take on another chore. So the trick to getting in some daily exercise is to change your perception about it; don’t think of it as something you have to do, but rather something that you want to do. Get excited about exercise! Enjoy spending the time working on yourself and feel good about all the new energy you are bringing into your life.
Using essential oils alongside your workout goals is a great way to stay motivated and get the most out of each and every exercise you commit to. Let’s take a look at a few great essential oil options:
This oil is great to use topically because of its ability to ease soreness and promote a healthy inflammatory response. In fact, many over-the-counter medications for joint and muscle health include this potent essential oil for that reason. It is ideal to help comfort muscles that are sore and tired after a strenuous workout, helping to make the whole exercise experience much better! You can also diffuse it to help increase your energy and sustain a positive mood.
The fresh, medicinal, green-woodsy scent is a great way to freshen up your at-home gym or even to use before and after exercising on public gym equipment. It can also boost energy levels and support your body’s immune response, helping to prepare your mind and body for an awesome workout!
If you’re coming home after an unpleasantly stressful day at work, exercise may be the last thing you want to do. Thankfully, diffusing Orange Blood can help you put aside the stressors of the day and focus on your own well being. When diffused, it offers that energizing, uplifting, and stimulating citrusy scent that is great for a pick-me-up.
Balm Mint Bush
This amazing essential oil offers a rich mint aroma with crisp eucalyptus notes that will help to uplift your mood and energize your environment. It is rich in methol content, making it perfect to help ease respiratory agitation so that you can enjoy your workout!
If you can’t tell by the very obvious name, this blend of essential oils was designed especially to boost your energy! When your energy level is low, exercising just doesn’t work out very well — but when energy is high, you can feel more confident and capable of pushing yourself to get a really great workout. The uplifting oils of Orange Blood and Geranium Egyptian help to ease away tension from daily stress and balance emotions; Peppermint and Lemon add an energizing burst to help stay alert and focused; Ginger Root and Eucalyptus Globulus bring warmth and healthy circulation to revitalize the mind and body.
Rapid Relief Blend
It’s not just muscles that can cause discomfort after exercise; sore joints can also be an unpleasant side effect after working out. Thankfully, Rapid Relief can help! The essential oils used in this blend can help warm the areas of concern and increase circulation — helping provide a sense of relief and ease. Just don’t forget the carrier oil. Dilute to 3-5% in order to safely use on skin.

Energy synergy and balm mint bush— YES!
I’ve had my eye on balm mint bush and I think this just sold me! Can’t wait to add this to my collection!
I have often used mint blends before, during and after exercise. I have not added Blood Orange into my routines. I will have to give it a try.
Orange blood is definitely moving to the top of my wish list after reading this blog! Sometimes it is just so hard to get out there and get it done but I always feel better after I exercise.
Great post! I’m going to order the Energy Blend now! And maybe the Mint Bush!!

Balm Mint Bush is one of my very favorites!
I love learning new ways to use essential oils and especially as a mom of four littles (including a set of three year old triplets), finding ways to have more energy is particularly useful.
Thank you for the blog post, I need something to get my energy and motivation up.
Energy is on my wish list. Should have placed an order yesterday. 🙂
If I think of exercise as something I get to do as opposed to something I have to do there is a better chance of my actually following through with it!
Both Rapid Relief and Energy are my two favorite synergy’s. They’re both very helpful for Fibromyalgia pain and brain fog. Thanks Plant Therapy!

Thanks for the fun ideas! I do keep several of my favorite rollers with me all the time and love the tension relief for exercise, among other things.
I am enjoying these blog posts and learning so much. I’m really interested in the Balm Mint EO, might have to order.

Rebecca, Orange Blood has a more intense citrus scent but the therapeutic properties are very similar.
Energy is in my top 5 favorite synergies! Definitely gives me the extra push I need to get through a long day!

Yay I have been wanting to try Rapid Relief for so long and so I’m so happy I was able to grab it with this deal!
The discount does not work for roll-ons? Tried to get the roll on Energy synergy and it said my order wasn’t eligible for the NEWYEAR discount 🙁 Bummer
Unfortunately, roll-ons are not included in today’s sale. Sorry about that!
I am enjoying these daily blog posts. I have been diffusing the energy synergy today and it has helped me feel more alert on this dreary winter day.
Balm Mint Bush is my new favorite oil right now!!
Very helpful posts so far this year! Thanks for the information and the deals!
We’re so glad you like what we did this year, Kayla!
Rapid Relief is also my go-to for headaches! I have them daily due to a ruptured brain aneurysm.I keep a roller ball in my purse and by my bed!
Super interesting post. I never thought to use essential oils as part of exercise. I will have to do some reasearch. I breastfeed and have small children in the home so I usually stick to the KidSafe line! I would love to try some of these though!
I can’t wait to try Energy Blend! Sounds fabulous!!
Excited that I have most of these! Would be great if this included more info on how these are best used…diffused, roll-ons, sprays?? I’m a newbie, so I never know the best way!
Balm mint bush is on my to be ordered list! I love the way Retha described it in today’s live. Thanks PT for all the wonderful tips and tricks and of course, holiday and post-holiday sales!
Thank you for watching the live, Amy! We always appreciate when our customers tune in 🙂
I love the Energy blend! I just sniff it right from the bottle! I recently ordered stuff to make inhalers and I will definitely be making one of the Energy blend to smell before workouts! Workouts aren’t always fun but I love what you said about changing your perception-makes it more enjoyable if I look at it as “me” time!
I’m looking forward to trying the Rapid Relief Blend. Hoping to get some relief on some of my achy joints.
I look forward to using the Energy Blend I just ordered. Hoping it will help with my energy level so I will be more motivated to exercise. I discovered Plant Therapy a couple of months ago and love your products. Great customer service!
Thank you for these great posts to start 2019. I’m picking up quite a few tips about oils that I never thought about. Another order needed so I can purchase Balm Mint Bush!
Balm mint Bush is so very unique to me, I love it! Energy is my absolute favorite synergy! I have yet to try rapid relief, its next on my list!
Love reading all these posts, knowledge is key! Thank you PT!
Rapid relief is my favorite PT oil because it works! I should buy it by the gallon! Lol…I wish you could make a roll on bottle that was 30 ml, or sell larger roll on bottles and I could make my own with the RR oil….good idea, right?! Lol…new year, new large roll on bottles?…PT, something to consider.. 🙂
I love the energy roll on, I take it everywhere I go! And I really wanna try the balm mint bush!!!
Orange blood what Is the difference compared to sweet orange ?
Kimberly, Orange Blood and Orange Sweet are in the same family, but Orange Blood has a more intense citrus scent, though they share similar properties.

Great Article, thanks! I need some Orange Blood for sure!
Rapid relief is on my wish list. I typically use peppermint on myself after a workout and it helps a lot! It tingles and energizes!
