How to use the young living, essential oil, Di-Gize?

What’s it good for?

Why should I have it in my essential oil arsenal of natural remedies?

” This blend may be useful for improving digestive function. The oils in this blend have been found to be beneficial in digesting toxic material and for alleviating indigestion, stomach cramps, upset stomach, belching, bloating and heartburn. “

I have been able to use this blend for myself several times for a queasy stomach. Though the smell is not my favorite (this is where I have to tell you not all oils smell fantastic — they are medicinal too) I cannot deny the help it has given me, either to stop vomiting or prevent the vomit and the pre-vomit belch. ewwww. I know. sorry.

It’s good to have on hand. A no-brainer to reach for when your tummy just doesn’t feel quite right.

Essential Oils for Crossfit pt.1

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Because my blog name isn’t obvious enough. I am a crossfit mom. Am I an elite athlete completing all workouts RX (as perscribed) and competing in the Crossfit Games? Not yet (I dream big). I am working towards an unassisted pull-up and to accomplish double-unders (swinging rope around twice while jumping once) strung together, two in a row would be nice. =D I am making progress. That’s what makes a crossfitter. Dedication, hard work, doing YOUR best everyday.

When I am able to complete a work-out RX I am very excited and proud of my ability! But no matter if I RX or scale the WOD (workout of the day), when I finish/get home and the soreness sets in I bring out my essential oils to help speed up recovery. Cause you know I’m going back for more tomorrow. =)

This past week I (along with my awesome & supportive team) sponsored an event at my Crossfit gym. We hired a Certified Massage Therapist to come and administer the “Raindrop Technique” to 10 Crossfit athletes. I have had this “technique” applied myself several times and the results are wonderful.

Here’s what we did and how the oils work in the body of the athlete.

A personal testimony of my own.

 

One evening after a an especially great WOD of box jumps and wall balls, hubby & my legs were feeling pretty wobbly as we walked down the stairs to our apartment.  I knew we could use a little oily help so I applied:

Aroma Siez: Relaxes muscle, Improves circulation, reduces inflammation, releases tension

Copaiba: Reduces inflammation, provides pain relief, magnifies the properties in other oils, amplifying their effect.

Ten minutes after this application we were moving around much easier. We still felt a bit sore. But we could climb up and down the stair without wincing at every step! =D

Stay tuned for pt. 2.
