Saw this on a friend's FB page and wanted to share. As a trainer he uses the oils in two ways. First, and best, as preventative and second to treat.
For prevention, he recommends a blend of 20 drops each of cypress, lemon, marjoram, Deep Blue, wintergreen, and peppermint. Apply before a work out to legs, shoulders, chest, whichever area you will be working on. For treatment he goes to frankincense and helichrysum. Two fantastic oils for healing!
Just heard about this amazing blend, "Dana's Blend"
from a customer. Went googling for it and found it. Thought I would share.
Dana Briggs is a licensed massage therapist who was asked to
help massage the feet of 500 runners. (SeptemberNewsletter
). From her professional knowledge she put together a blend for muscle aches, pains and cramps.
Here are the ingredients for about 20 ounces of this marvelous blend. Naturally, you could scale it back if you didn't wish to have that much. All of the added ingredients used are CPTG (certified pure therapeutic grade) oils from doTERRA.
20 ounces of purified water
25 drops Peppermint
25 drops Lemongrass
25 drops Aroma Touch
25 drops Clove Bud
20 drops Marjoram
20 drops Deep Blue
20 drops Oregano
1 ounce Fractionated Coconut Oil (about 1/4th bottle)
We mix ours up in a 22 oz spray bottle! Shake well before spraying (oil and water still do not mix) This will provide months of care for an active family.
*Tiffany's note: could also add the oils to a roller bottle...
