All of us have times where we feel like we just can’t wake up after we get out of bed in the morning. It’s especially hard when the days are shorter and therefore it’s dark more often. Rather than reach for an energy drink, essentials are a proven and effective natural way to get more energy in the morning – or any time of the day you need a pick-me-up, really!

Here are some of the ways that essential oils can boost your energy:

  • Elevates your mood
  • Alleviates feelings of fatigue and tiredness
  • Increases productivity
  • Helps with concentration and focus

There are several essential oils that can help with natural energy boosts, but here are someone of our favorites:

Peppermint has many wonderful benefits, and one of them is that it is a powerhouse when it comes to energy. The invigorating aroma is great for perking up your senses and bringing clarity and focus to the mind. Since it is also antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal, Peppermint does great things for you physically as well. It’s great all-around!

Orange, lemon, grapefruit, and lime are powerful and uplifting essential oils. They are proven to promote happiness and positivity, reduce mental fatigue and stress, as well as improve energy levels. The scents are not overpowering, but the benefits are definitely powerful. All of these oils can be found in our Citrus-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist to get all the benefits at once!

Eucalyptus is one of our favorite oils, and for good reason! Its benefits are amazing. Eucalyptus is anti-inflammatory, decongesting, antimicrobial, antiviral, and so much more. Studies have shown that it stimulates the immune system, which means that it is wonderful for getting a boost of energy when you need it. The menthol scent alone can give you a boost!

There are many ways to use essential oils to get these great benefits. You can apply them topically to pressure points like the inside of your wrists or your temples (be careful not to get any in your eyes!). You can inhale the scent directly from the bottle or use a diffuser.

We love using our ShowerMists to get all the benefits of these essentials oils while also getting in a relaxing shower. All you need to do is run a steamy shower, spritz a few sprays into the steam (away from your face), and breathe in those benefits.
