Essential oils for Athletes and Crossfitters

Barbell-and-KBSEssential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. This is great news for athletes and crossfitters who care about what they put in and on their bodies!

The properties in essential oils can speed healing from hard workouts and help with both acute and chronic injuries. Many traditional sports remedies often contain synthetic compounds based on the naturally occurring compounds found in essential oils but synthetics often have unknown side effects.

Essential oils pass through the cell walls quickly, they are absorbed almost instantly and can be immediately used by your body and naturally metabolizes. This is one of the reasons they are so effective for athletes. The results can often be felt instantly.
