Being in good health is crucial to maintaining our energy levels. A healthy lifestyle including a well-balanced diet, regular physical activity, drinking plenty of water, and getting enough sleep at night can all have a positive influence on our energy levels.
But what about those days when things are hectic and you just need that little extra boost? Maybe you couldn’t for some reason sleep well the night before, you have a big project that just landed on your desk, or maybe the kids have been running you all over the place with their summer activities.
Instead of reaching for your tenth cup of coffee or worse yet an energy drink…try essential oils! Today I am sharing my four favorite energy blends for whatever you may need.
This classic and popular duo of peppermint and sweet orange is perfect for those who do not have an extensive oils collection just yet or anyone that likes to just keep it simple!
This blend of peppermint, lemon and rosemary is perfect for keeping you energized and focused on the task at hand. It’s a great study buddy!
All Day Energy
This bright blend of grapefruit, sweet orange, spearmint and rosemary just like the morning sunrise is a great way to start the day! Works great in a perfume or body spray!
Citrus Burst of Energy
This blend of lemon, lime, mandarin, bergamot and grapefruit is a personal favorite of mine as I love citrus aromas! Does the trick every single time, so uplifting!
How to Use the Energizing Master Blends
- Diffuse: Refer to your diffuser’s manual for recommended drops per amount of water. Diffuse for approximately 30 minutes.
- Inhaler: Add 10-15 drops of master blend to the cotton wick on an inhaler and assemble. Remove cap and inhale as needed.
- Roller: Place 4 drops of master blend in a 10ml roller bottle filled with carrier oil for a 2% dilution. Apply to wrist, neck, or behind ears as desired.
- Also try adding them to bath salts, lotions, and soaps. Since many of these contain citrus and essential oils in the mint family be sure to use caution with proper dilutions!
