I’ve mentioned that I live a hectic lifestyle. It can get mentally and physically draining. There have been many occasions that I had to come to the office even though I feel like sleeping for an entire day. Sometimes, not even a cup of the strongest coffee I have can keep me up.
This is where pure essential oils have been of great help to me. Aside from putting a few drops of Peppermint on my coffee, I’ve been using a blend consisting of 2 drops of Lemon, Copaiba, and Purification each on my diffuser to give me the strength I need to keep going for a little while longer.
What’s in these oils that make them great for boosting energy? Allow me to give you a brief overview:
Lemon has a calming but refreshing quality that helps cleanse your body of toxins. It creates a positive atmosphere and takes away your fatigue and nervousness. If you’re suffering from migraines, this can help you get rid of them.
According to an article by Organic Facts, Lemon is also said to aid your concentration. It also suggested using it to freshen up the office air and help in employee productivity, which I’ve also been doing. Who says I have to be the only one who gets to reap the benefits of the aromas in my diffuser?
Copaiba is known for its pain-relieving qualities and being able to get rid of infections and inflammations. It also helps lower your blood pressure, which is a huge plus if your exhaustion is making you more stressed.
Purification is, in actuality, a mix of different oils, namely Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Tea Tree (Melaleuca), Lavandin, and Myrtle. Together, they create a very vibrant scent that is highly effective at getting rid of unwanted odors. It works exactly as it is named—purifying the air of bad smells.
When I mixed these three oils together and used them in my Dewdrop diffuser, it worked like a charm. After several minutes, I was much more awake and alert. I felt like I could take on the rest of the day and everything that came along with it.
As a bonus, the air is cleaner and purified. Less possibilities for rhinitis and asthma. Yey!
If you have your own collection of essential oils or are thinking of getting yourself some, let me know if you already have a recipe you wanna try.
If I happen to make new blends of my own, I’ll be sure to let you all know!
