Power Up Your Cycling Journey with Young Living!
Mountain biking & other cycling enthusiasts are always on the lookout for ways to elevate their riding experience. (This information will apply equally to any endurance activity! ) 
Everything from improving focus and endurance to aiding in recovery, the use of essential oils and other Young Living products can be a game-changer for avid riders. In this blog post, I will explore the benefits of incorporating Young Living products into your mountain biking / cycling routine and how I use them, how they can support you both on and off the trails.

Let's start with Focus and Mental Clarity:
Mountain biking requires intense concentration and quick decision-making. To promote focus and mental clarity, consider using Young Living essential oils such as Peppermint or Rosemary. The invigorating scent of Peppermint can heighten alertness, while Rosemary can help improve cognitive function. Apply a few drops to your temples or diffuse the oil before your ride to stay sharp and focused. 
Take some NingXia Nitro, a delicious, energizing wolfberry drink infused with essential oils, botanical extracts, D-ribose, Korean ginseng, and green tea extract to support alertness and cognitive and physical fitness.

Pre-Workout Preparation:
Preparing your body for an intense mountain biking session is crucial to optimizing performance and minimizing the risk of injury. Young Living offers a range of products that can assist in pre-workout preparation. CBD Muscle Rub offers a cooling sensation you’ll love and is designed to support proper warm-up and stretching routines. Apply this rub to target areas before your ride to help increase flexibility and support healthy blood flow.

Energy Boost During Your Ride:
Maintaining energy levels throughout your ride is essential, especially during longer, more demanding trails. Instead of relying on caffeine or sugary energy drinks, consider using Young Living's Nitro and / or NingXia Red products. Nitro is a natural energy boost that combines essential oils with powerful botanical extracts. NingXia Red, on the other hand, is an energizing antioxidant drink that provides sustained, natural vitality. These products ensure you stay fueled and focused without the crash associated with sugar-laden options.
You can also bring along a couple Slique Bars, depending on the length of your ride. Slique Bars are a nutritious snack that features a medley of exotic fruits, nuts, and essential oils to help you curb cravings and feel full longer supplying you with a nutritious and healthy alternative food made from Baru nuts, Almonds, Honey, Chicory root inulin, Dates, Coconut, Cacao nibs, Goldenberries, Bing cherries, Wolfberries (Lycium barbarum), Quinoa crisps, Chia seeds, Potato skin extract, Sea salt, Vanilla (Vanilla planifolia)† essential oil, Sunflower lecithin, Orange (Citrus aurantium dulcis)† peel oil, Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum)† bark oil †Premium essential oil. 

Anticipate the Unexpected:
Mountain biking can sometimes lead to unexpected incidents like scrapes, bumps, or insect bites.

Post-Ride Recovery:
Recovery is a vital component of any intense physical activity, and mountain biking is no exception. Incorporating Young Living products into your post-ride routine can aid in soothing sore muscles and promoting overall relaxation. Copaiba, Cool Azul and PanAway, three popular essential oil blends, have analgesic properties and can be applied topically to alleviate discomfort or inflammation. Furthermore, utilizing Young Living's CBD muscle rubs and CBD oils can contribute to a quicker recovery and improved mobility. And... Don't forget about AminoWise, it  was developed and formulated for an optimized post-workout product. It is more than just an amino acid supplement. It is triple-targeted with branched chain amino acids for muscle building and repair, polyphenol and antioxidants for recovery, and a hydrating mineral blend to replace important minerals that are lost during exercise. This triple-targeted formula makes AminoWise a perfect during and post-workout supplement. Add Pure Protein Complete, Chocolate Deluxe OR Vanilla Spice to support your workout routine recovery with a proprietary five-protein blend, Orange premium essential oil, BCAAs, enzymes, and probiotics to support metabolism and ATP production and help build lean muscle.

Mindful Meditation and Yoga:
To complement your mountain biking adventures and promote overall well-being, consider incorporating mindful meditation and yoga sessions. Young Living has a wide range of essential oils, such as Frankincense, Palo Santo, Lavender, and many more, that are known to enhance relaxation and mindfulness. Diffuse these oils during your meditation practice or use them as a natural fragrance during your yoga sessions for a heightened sense of tranquility.
