"Optimise your workout with a strong recovery."
For your post-exercise muscle-soothing we’ve chosen wintergreen, lemongrass, peppermint, clove and lavender essential oils.
Wintergreen – helps to relieve muscle soreness and fatigue.
Lemongrass – has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties and can relieve aching muscles and calm an anxious mind.
Peppermint – has a cooling effect that helps to relieve sore muscles, and can help boost energy and fight mental fatigue.
Clove - is a protective oil, with its high antioxidant count, an antibacterial and an immune-system booster.
Lavender - soothing and calming, great for reducing feelings of stress, and for entering a state of relaxation before sleep.
Rest and recovery are at a premium with our busy lives these days, but you know they are an important part of reaching your full potential in your chosen sport, and remaining injury-free.
SO: how about something quick and easy that you can do at home with no special equipment? (Ok, you need a bath. But if you don’t have one of them, a foot soak will still get the good stuff into you).
Our So: Active bath soaks are helping professional and amateur sports teams and athletes of all ages to:
Relax tense muscles and support recovery
Relieve muscular pains and cramps
Support healthy sleep patterns
Increase energy levels
Reduce performance anxiety and general stress levels
... naturally, easily, and cost-effectively.
SO: Active contains Natural Epsom salt (magnesium sulphate), Organic Sodium Bicarbonate to neutralise lactic acid, and 5 essential oils used for their pain- and tension-relieving properties.
Add half* the contents of the bottle to your bath and soak for 20 minutes. Great to do in the evening as the act of taking a warm bath also encourages sleep.
* If you are training hard or your body needs some extra TLC, using the whole bottle in one bath is beneficial.
In a foot soak – add a quarter of the bottle to a tub of warm water. Soak your feet for 15 minutes. Keep a towel handy (learnt the hard way!).
