Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to improve your physical, mental and emotional well-being.  Essential oils stimulate the senses and can make you feel more energetic and alert.  Diffuse or inhale one of the following oils whenever you’re feeling sluggish and need a little natural pick-me-up.

Sweet Orange Essential Oil

Sweet Orange essential oil is distilled from the rind of the orange fruit.  The rind is cold pressed to release the oil.  Sweet orange oil has a fresh, sweet aroma that is known to have an invigorating and uplifting effect on the body. It acts as an excellent natural mood-enhancer, which is sometimes exactly what is needed to help get us motivated and productive throughout our day. Sweet orange oil encourages good energy, good vibes, and a good mood, so that minimizes any worries or stresses we might have. 

Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint essential oil is distilled from the leaves of the peppermint herb.  It is one of the most popular essential oils in the world.  Peppermint essential oil is energizing and cooling. Studies show that peppermint oil can improve concentration, alertness and energy. At the same time, peppermint oil alleviates stress, depression symptoms and mental exhaustion, making it a necessity to incorporate into your daily routine if work or everyday circumstances are stressing you out and depleting you of your energy.  It can improve your performance by helping decrease fatigue and tiredness. If you’re feeling like you need a quick boost of energy, place a couple of drops inside your diffuser and take some deep breaths to supply your body with exhilaration and vitality.

Combine 3 drops of Sweet Orange Oil and 3 drops of Peppermint Oil in your diffuser to motivate you so you can tackle the day's agenda and keep your spirits upbeat and cheerful.


Lemongrass Essential Oil

Lemongrass is a grassy plant that is often used in cooking and grows in tropical climates.  Lemongrass essential oil has a bright and refreshing citrus scent that inspires a positive outlook.   Lemongrass oil can contribute to giving someone relief from their anxiety or stressful environment.  It can combat lethargy, irritability, and nervousness in a person. It also boosts mental alertness and eliminates mental fatigue.  When utilizing lemongrass oil through a diffuser, it inspires freshness and gives the perception of a rejuvenated environment. It can immediately uplift one's mood and can help in eradicating negative and depressing attitudes or temperaments.


Rose Geranium Essential Oil

Rose Geranium essential oil comes from a geranium flower that smells strongly of roses.  When rose geranium oil is used in aromatherapy applications, the sweet, floral, citrusy subtlety of the aroma is known to have a soothing effect that promotes greater feelings of relaxation, emotional stability, and optimism. These balancing qualities are beneficial for those who may be suffering from fatigue, anxiety, nervousness, mental stress, or grief. Some people find that this oil has an energizing effect instead. Whether calming or energizing, it elevates a person's mood and promotes a positive mental and emotional well-being. 

Try making your own diffuser blend with any of these essential oils.  Start with one drop of each oil and adjust from there to achieve the desired scent that satisfies your personal preference.
