Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My husband is a weightlifter, getting up at 5 AM to work out before heading to the office each day. Getting up early is hard enough, and for a long time my husband would depend on pre-workout powders to jolt him awake and to give him intensity in his workouts. Those powders can do a number on your body and heart and can be dangerous too.

I asked my husband to switch to essential oils to see if they could work as well as the protein powders. A combination of Peppermint and Lemon essential oils is enough to make him feel alert and awake during his workouts. He simply puts a drop of each essential oil in the palm of his hand, rubs his hands together, and then inhales the oils deeply.

For stamina and intensity in his workouts, my husband now also uses a shot of NingXia Red with a drop of Peppermint essential oil added.

Since he switched to essential oils, my husband no longer has the feelings of heart racing, face flushing, and blood pounding that he was used to. He also does not have the high followed by the crash anymore, yet he still gets in a great workout!
