Energy slumps happen throughout the day, but essential oils provide a natural, aromatic way to get those energy levels back up quickly. Here are our three favorite picks, all of which are proven to awaken your senses and help you function at your best all day long.

A Gentle Jolt: Citrus

For a natural, energetic boost, reach for a citrus blend of essential oils. The zesty, upbeat scents of orange, lemon, grapefruit, and lime provide a powerful, energetic kick when you need it most. It’s a lively scent that will leave you feeling energized, refreshed, and ready to tackle whatever comes your way.

Citrus also aids in reducing stress and sharpening your ability to focus. Our Citrus-Infused 100% Pure Eucalyptus Shower Mist gives a gentle jolt in the morning without compromising your skin. You can also diffuse citrus at your desk to keep your creative juices flowing throughout the day. 

Pep in Your Step: Peppermint

Whether you’re feeling the afternoon energy slump or want a quick pick-me-up before a workout, peppermint provides a stimulating, invigorating boost.

The aroma of peppermint can even be a natural, non-toxic replacement to sipping a sugary drink or cup of coffee. Try starting your day with a hot shower and our Mint-Infused 100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist for a boost.
