Stressed? Rub This On Your Head, Back and More!
The holidays aren’t supposed to be a stressful time, but they certainly can be,
We know what it’s like, school plays for parents with kids in elementary school, work parties that last late, shopping, and more shopping, and trying to simply fit all the good times in before the clock strikes midnight on the 31st of December.
All that stress can manifest in the most unlikely places…your entire body!
We know that it doesn’t take much to make us stressed out, but we also know it doesn’t take much to help return us to a state of calm and serenity.
One of the best stress relievers around is magnesium.
You can take it orally to experience stress relief from the inside out, or, you can rub it directly on your skin to promote muscle quick and effective relaxation.
Our Sports Magnesium Oil is a great topical magnesium that you can use either this holiday season or post exercise to help get stress relief.
It has arnica in it (a powerful pain-reliever) as well as essential oils (which are useful for stress relief via aromatherapy) for maximum effect.
A bottle will last you for months, and it smells great.
Go ahead and get yours here and/or read on to see how it could work for you!
A Sports Oil That Works Any Time of Year
When people feel stressed out one of the easiest ways to release the hold that stress has on your mind is by attacking it in the body first.
That’s why massages are so helpful for stress relief.
While you may not be very good at giving yourself a massage, you could rub this Sports il on your body to find relief.
Magnesium is especially helpful at penetrating your skin and helping you relax.
Dr. Mark Sircus, who's a renowned expert on the effects of magnesium in the body, writes this about what happens when you introduce magnesium chloride into the body transdermally:
Transdermal magnesium therapy is ideal for pain management. The combination of heat and magnesium chloride increases circulation and waste removal. The therapeutic effect of magnesium baths is to draw inflammation out of the muscles and joints. Magnesium chloride, when applied directly to the skin, is transdermally absorbed and has an almost immediate effect on pain. As an alternative to baths, especially for patients who cannot get into them, is to use a Biomat while getting a massage with magnesium oil (or gel).
One other thing that the Sports oil offers is a blend of essential oils.
That’s important because the smell of these essential oils can also help you relax.
Johns Hopkins says this about aromatherapy and essential oils:
“Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils for therapeutic benefit. Aromatherapy has been used for centuries. When inhaled, the scent molecules in essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain and especially impact the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain.
Essential oils can also be absorbed by the skin. A massage therapist might add a drop or two of wintergreen to oil to help relax tight muscles during a rubdown. A skincare company may add lavender to bath salts to create a soothing soak.”
