Essential Oils For Focus & Motivation
It’s a Saturday morning and you’d rather lie in bed than head to the gym for a workout you promised yourself you’d do… or it’s 3pm in the office and you’re craving your third caffeine fix of the day.
We’ve all been there. Lacking motivation or the drive to ‘get-up-and-go’ is something we all struggle with from time to time. There are in fact a number of natural ways of increasing your energy levels and boosting your mood. From eating a nutritionally balanced diet and staying hydrated to exercising regularly and trying to obtain a regular sleeping pattern.
While this can be easier said than done sometimes, integrating Pure Essential Oils into your wellness routine could prove to be extremely beneficial when you’re looking for an energy boost or a pick-me-up that you can’t seem to get elsewhere.
Keep reading to find out how nature’s purest ingredients can give you that much-needed kick to seize the day to the best of your ability.
Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus): While known for relieving symptoms of cold and flu, Eucalyptus is one of mother nature’s most warming ingredients. Known for its invigorating and stimulating properties, it offers plenty of emerging benefits that stimulate the body into action – just another reason to cut down on your caffeine intake!
Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus): Not just beneficial for its detoxifying properties, this Pure Essential Oil can also help to lift your mood. Its fresh and citrusy scent is ideal for encouraging an emotional boost when we’re feeling a little flat, and its invigorating elements help to encourage focus when we need it the most.
Peppermint (Mentha x Piperita): This awakening Pure Essential Oil provides a reviving experience for those in need of a pick me up . Known to improve focus by removing ‘brain fog’ that often happens during times of stress or after a long day, the menthol that is found in Peppermint works to improve concentration and motivation, by alleviating indications of fatigue.
Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis): You may think of it as a delicious herb for seasoning purposes, but Rosemary Pure Essential Oil has extreme stimulatory effects. This oil promotes wakefulness and helps to boost moods while increasing brain wave activity and the autonomic nervous system. Incorporating this oil into your day to day life could completely change the way you live.
Incorporating Pure Essential Oils into your routine
Since we’d all benefit from an extra boost of energy that doesn’t come from reaching for a KitKat or a double espresso or other undesirable stimulants, Pure Essential Oils could just be what you’ve been missing from your routine. Both aromatherapy and safe topical application are extremely effective ways to help encourage you to push yourself throughout the day. We recommend adding 6 drops of your chosen oil to your ultrasonic diffuser, or adding to a carrier oil of your choice to massage safely onto pressure points of the body.
