SELF CARE SATURDAY
🌿 stretch & refresh 🌿
STRETCHING = ENDORPHIN RELEASE
Did you know that stretching your body can release endorphins and help improve your mood? Endorphins are part of your bodies' natural reward system - this is why we often stretch involuntarily after waking up in the morning or before we go to bed. It's our bodies' way of motivating us to keep moving and using our muscles!
Besides enjoying an endorphin rush, stretching can also relieve muscle tension and stress, can increase your flexibility and circulation, and can even improve your posture. It is a form of self care - which is something we like to practice at least once a week! This month we are building connections through community, and the first place to start with that is forming a connection with yourself! When you listen to your body, you are that much more in touch with yourself, which is the foundation for having connections with others.
START STRETCHING WITH THESE TOOLS
MASSAGE MUSCLES BEFORE AND AFTER STRETCHING
This balm is based on an Ayurvedic formula - a medical philosophy from India that has been used thousands of years to cleanse and restore balance to the body, mind, and spirit. The ingredients in this balm work together to provide pain relief associated with injury, arthritis, muscle ache, and joint pain. The camphor, peppermint, and wintergreen stimulates your circulation by interacting with receptors on sensory nerves, and also provide a cooling effect, while the other ingredients work to nourish and strengthen your muscles and tendons.
Apply topically to areas of pain once or twice per day. Made in New Mexico.
non-staining mahanarayan oil and the essential oils of eucalyptus, camphor, peppermint, wintergreen, frankincense, and beeswax
STRETCH ON A YOGA MAT - EVEN IF YOU DON'T PRACTICE YOGA
We love yoga, and although no mats are required for the state of mind, if you do have one, you want to make sure no bacteria can live in or on it! By dedicating a mat specifically for your self-care needs, like stretching and yoga, you are more likely to actually do it! Pick out one that sparks your joy and don't forget to clean it!
Shake well before use. Made in New Mexico.
lemongrass distillate, distilled water, everclear and a proprietary blend including rosemary, eucalyptus, and lemongrass essential oils
