If we’re being honest, most of us probably deal with low energy at least once in awhile. This could be from a variety of factors: lack of sleep, hormonal imbalance, stress, poor eating habits, and so much more. Instead of resorting to energy drinks or shots of espresso (which will most likely make you crash even harder after their effects wear off!), try using essential oils as a natural and more sustainable energy boost.

Three of our favorite oils for a natural energy boost are Eucalyptus, Citrus, and Peppermint. All of these oils have dozens of amazing properties, and boosting energy is one of them! Just a sniff or two can be enough to invigorate you during that 2pm slump.

Here are a few more ways to use these oils for a natural energy boost:

Add them to your diffuser

A diffuser is a great way to get all the benefits of essential oils while going about your day. It’s easy and makes your home smell amazing. You don’t just have to use one of these oils at a time – try making your own cocktail of essential oils!

Citrus oils combined with peppermint are a great wintery combination that will not only energize you, but will help cleanse the air in your home and improve focus.

Apply topically

Rub a few drops of either Eucalyptus, Citrus, or Peppermint Oil on your temples (be careful around your eyes!) and on other pressure points like your wrists to get the benefits into your system. After you apply, take a few deep breaths directly from the bottle for an instant pick-me-up.

Use our ShowerMists

Run a steamy shower in the morning and spritz a few sprays of either our 100% Pure Eucalyptus, Citrus-Infused, or Mint-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMists into the steam. Or you can try mixing them like in your diffuser! This is a great way to get all the benefits of these amazing essential oils into your system right away in the morning.
