Welcome to the new year! If you’ve decided to make some resolutions, we here at Plant Therapy want to help you keep those promises you made yourself. Want to run a marathon or follow through with a new exercise plan? Want to maximize your productivity at work or at home? How about dedicating more play time with the kids after a long day at work?
Those are great goals, but they require a certain ingredient for success: Energy!
Instead of reaching for that second or third cup of coffee, try reaching for an essential oil instead. Use energizing oils to lift you out of midday grogginess, motivate you to get to the gym, or simply to fight off fatigue and make the most of your day.
Let’s take a moment to appreciate the unique blend of essential oils our amazing team of Certified Aromatherapists have developed to make Energy Synergy. This stimulating blend is a sure-fire way to add some pep in your step. The uplifting oils of Orange Blood and Geranium Egyptian help to ease away tension from daily stress and balance emotions; Peppermint and Lemon add an energizing burst that keeps you alert and focused; Ginger Root and Eucalyptus Globulus bring warmth and healthy circulation to revitalize your mind and body.
Use Energy Synergy to help you stick with your New Year’s Resolutions and super-charge your day!
Single Oils for Energy
Now, as great as our Energy Synergy is, you don’t want to forget about all the amazing single oils that can help boost you out of a low energy slump! Use them alone or try your hand at mixing up your very own blend! If you need some help figuring out what works well together, visit that oil’s product page for a list of suggestions.
Balm Mint Bush is highly uplifting and intensely refreshing. Its aroma differs from Peppermint because of its crisp eucalyptus notes, which is ideal for an energizing burst.
Speaking of which, Eucalyptus Globulus is another fantastic choice to lift your spirits and focus your mind. It also brings warmth to the body and promotes healthy circulation; when your body feels good, it responds with elevated energy levels.
Additionally, citrus oils are powerful energy boosters. Both Lemon and Grapefruit oils (including Organic Lemon and Organic Grapefruit) have energizing, crisp, and uplifting scents that work as immediate stimulates. A quick inhale of either will give you a burst of mental clarity — they’re known to be very effective mood-boosters, too.
Last but not least, give Yuzu a try. Zesty and refreshing, this is a mood-lifter and great energy booster.
Now we know which essential oils to use for a burst of energy. But what are the best ways to use them?
What You’ll Need:
What you’ll need:
- 1 1/3 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup water
- you won’t add essential oils until you’re ready to use them, after baking
What you’ll do:
- Mix baking soda and water to form a thick paste
- Press into silicon mold of your choice
- Bake at 200 degree for 30 minutes
- Shut off oven, allow to cool
- Then move to counter and allow mold to sit overnight
- Un-mold after 24 hours
- Store in airtight container
To use, place on the back of the shower floor, not directly under water spray but close enough that some water hits it. Note that these are PLAIN and you can customize them by adding 5-8 drops of the essential oil of your choice (Energyfor the morning, Sniffle Stopper for a younger child with a cold, etc) They are pretty and functional!
