Do you ever wake up groggy, demotivated and desperate for a boost?
Don’t worry; it happens to the best of us. Fixing your lack of energy can take some effort; eating better, regular exercise, and getting a good night’s sleep are all important factors to waking up feeling refreshed. But did you know that essential oils can help, too? Read on for some top tips on how to keep your energy levels up throughout the day with the help of essential oils.
In the Morning
Start your day by adding a few drops of orange essential oil to your diffuser when you wake up to fill your room with the scent of fresh oranges and clear out the cobwebs. The invigorating aroma of freshly peeled oranges will rouse even the sleepiest head.
Taking a hot shower is a time-honored technique to get you going in the morning, and the power of peppermint can multiply the effect. While store-bought peppermint shower gel might smell divine, it’s not necessarily the best product for your skin. So, try adding a few drops of peppermint essential oil to your sponge before soaping up for a full-body invigorating effect which will chase away the clouds and leave you feeling tingly fresh.
Skincare is a great way to take a daily moment for yourself. Invigorate your morning routine with a hydrating and exfoliating almond orange face scrub which will leave your skin smooth and complexion flawless.
If you’re a tea lover, you might have heard about the invigorating effects of Earl Grey, which gets some of its energizing properties from bergamot oranges. The good news is you can get the same effect from bergamot essential oil. Add just a drop or two to any hot drink to get the same benefits. Fragrance is the key here, so make sure to breathe deeply and enjoy the refreshing aroma.
Throughout the Day
If you need a pick me up after a stressful commute to work, try a refreshing face mist with some uplifting ylang ylang floral water. Trust us, it won’t mess up your makeup and it’ll do wonders for your skin. In fact, another great use of this is as a finishing spray to set your makeup look for the day. We like to keep one at home and in our handbag for an anytime boost!
Spritz your space with some lemongrass room freshener when you get home to purify the air and chase away cooking odours, cigarette smoke, and more. Unlike synthetic room sprays, it contains no artificial fragrances, making it safe to breathe deeply and suitable for use around pets.
Getting a good night’s sleep is the key to keeping up your energy during the day. Once it’s time to wind down for the day, why not swap the lemongrass for the relaxing scent of lavender essential oil to get you ready for a restful slumber.
A regular healthy routine is key to maintaining energy and motivation, and essential oils can be a great tool to add additional health benefits to our daily lives.
