Hi friends! It’s been awhile. So, if you didn’t see my picture of a donut on my instagram feed, I definitely fell off the whole30 bandwagon, and am paying for it. However, I’m still trying to eat as Whole30 as possible and will most definitely do a whole 30 in July. I didn’t meal prep or mentally prepare as well as I should have this time around. 😦
To compensate for lack of whole30ing, I’m trying to compensate in the gym. We’ve been doing auxillary lifts with 15-10-5 reps for 3 sets. It’s exhausting, and my lower back has been so sore, as have my quads!
I love my Deep Relief roller, but I also love using PanAway and Peppermint post workout. Today, I wanted to make a cream that I could massage onto my muscles periodically and also moisturize my skin. I adapted a sore muscle cream that I found on pinterest, to fit my personal preference of oils. I can already feel it doing it’s magic, and I love it!!
- Glass Jar
- Coconut Oil
- Jojoba Oil or Sweet Almond Oil
How to Make:
- Place 1/2 cup of Coconut Oil and 1/4 tsp of Jojoba or Sweet Almond Oil in a blender of food processor. Pulse or run normally for 30 seconds.
- Add 4 drops of each oil and pulse or run normally for another minute or until the mixture is fluffy.
- ENJOY, and use as often as you would like!
I’ve really been digging Copaiba lately. It’s an oil that supports the body’s natural response to injury and irritation. I’ve been pretty hard on my muscles, so I’ve been happy to use this oil to support my body post workout. I like to layer it with Peppermint and PanAway as both have cooling effects and work on my sore muscles post workout. Lavender is supports happy skin and smells beautiful. Valor is that oil that I just adore. Not only does it make me feel brave, it also supports physical alignment. Frankly, I love the scent of Lemongrass, so I just add it to everything!
P.S. That Essential Oils Deal from my last post is still on! 12 Oils for the Price of 11, and a Diffuser. $150. This is great, and quite possibly a steal that will never happen again. Did I mention how much I love my oils? 4 of the 6 oils listed in the recipe come with the Kit above, and Lemongrass is one of the flex surprise oils. You can do so much with them! If you are interested, shoot me an email at kelsileeEO@gmail.com. I will gift you the Happy Oils Handbook, which includes recipes similar to the one listed above. OR you can sign up HERE!
