An Aroma WOD is a quick workout using your own body weight in a functional way with essential oils. WOD stands for workout of the day. The human body was designed to move. And there is no doubt we all feel better when we exercise, whether it is going for a run, a swim, or even a walk on the beach. Add in a few squats, lunges, sit-ups and tricep dips and you are WOD’ing!
A WOD can be done in your own home, out on the lawn, on the beach or at the park. It can be just two minutes long or up to 20 minutes maximum. The key is to make it a workout that is easily performed in the time frame you have. This in turn helps to keep up a positive, happy and healthy attitude towards moving your body and making it a ritual we embrace for life. Let’s face it, many will regret it when they find an excuse not to exercise but with a workout regime as simple as this and there is no more excuses, no more regrets. Add one more powerful dimension… essential oils!
You can listen to Show 82 – Fab4In5 – for workout ideas but here is a wonderful way to add to the feel good factor.
Smell is closely linked to our emotions and can affect the way we think and feel. To truly lock in those good feelings we have associated to exercising and to encourage the longevity of endorphin release we use our sense of smell to anchor it. A couple drops of a favourite essential oil or an essential oil blend is the most ideal and effective way to enhance the mind/body connection.
A couple of drops of your favourite oil on a tissue, a brisk body boost massage or a spritzer are all fantastic ways to incorporate essential oils into your WOD – your brand new, exciting and uplifting Aroma WOD!
Set an intention to do your workout. Have appreciation for your body. No matter how your legs look be grateful you can even attempt and complete a workout of the day. Too often we complain about how they should look when we really should be grateful for all they do!
You can look at the phenomenal oil of Neroli! Neroli is from the blossom of the Orange tree. This delicate, light, sweet aroma has very calming, tranquillising, restoring and regenerating qualities.
Physically it is excellent in skincare for dry and sensitive skins, it also works a treat on scars and broken capillaries. It is also an excellent oil for insomnia and muscle tension. Emotionally, it is beautiful to use as a calmative especially when worried. Neroli is known as the ‘Rescue Remedy’ of essential oils so it is the best oil for shock, hysteria, anxiety and depression as well as helping to manage emotional demands in our busy everyday lives. And it can help add to the euphoric feelings a workout brings.
And as a side note… this beautiful oil makes an exquisite perfume, one drop is all that is needed on the perfume points. Indulge, enjoy and never ever forget to love your legs!
