Relief from trail running, hiking, and biking injuries.

Now that summer is in full swing and we’re doing more outdoor activities, we have to be careful of injuries from accidents and overuse. To soothe injuries, aches, and pains from the trail or the treadmill, add a blend of anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, and rejuvenating essential oils to your first-aid kit.

A few of our favorite anti-inflammatory oils reduce swelling at the injury site, which is crucial to maintaining proper blood flow for healing. German Chamomile, Lavender, and Clove essential oils have been clinically proven effective at reducing swelling and redness related to inflammation. These oils have been indicated for the reduction of strains, sprains, arthritis, and other musculo-skeletal injuries.

Clove has an immediate numbing effect.

The body sends a signal to the brain to alert it to possible or actual tissue damage: pain. Frankincense, Wintergreen, Peppermint, Clove bud, and Ginger lend immediate pain-relief by depressing sensory receptors in the brain. They do this by inhibiting prostagladins, and thereby the routes by which pain signals travel to the brain. Whereas some prescribed pain relievers do this by binding to opioid receptors, essential oils do not.

Blended together with the all-star healing oil Helichrysum, anti-inflammatory and analgesic oils make for a triumvirate of tissue repair. Helichrysum enables the body to repair cells, aided by the proper circulation and reduced inflammation. It really is a winning combination. and if you use no other oil in your exposure, let it be Helichrysum. It’s always gotten rave reviews from athletes who have done a little damage in training an racing.

At Ananda, we have two blends that serve two similar, but different purposes: Super Soother and Athlete Magic. Super Soother calms and eases muscular overwork by minimizing swelling and relieving pain. Helichrysum adds its regenerative benefits, making this blend ideal for pre- and post- workout relief. Super Soother is an all-natural, non-toxic version of muscle rubs that heat and cool at the same time.

Athlete Magic, on the other hand, is more oriented toward the repair of heavy duty muscle overuse or injury. With strong anti-inflammatory ingredients: Frankincense, Ginger, Clove, and German Chamomile, this blend is fit to handle tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, sprains, arthritis, and even bruises.

Should your summer adventures yield strains, sprains, or injuries, a little essential oil in your day pack can bring a lot of relief.*
