A big aromatic welcome to everyone, newcomers and regulars alike!
Anyone else feeling a touch tired? It’s getting to that time of the year isn’t it?!! and it’s certainly been a busy one for almost everyone I know. Full of hard work, change and challenges as well as many good times too. Altogether that adds up to a lot so it’s ok to feel tired every now and then.
And whenever I feel a bit low on energy what do I do? Reach for my essential oils of course!
This week I’m reaching for energising oils…vitality-giving, fatigue-fighting, uplifting, refreshing and restorative oils! Here’s the blend I created…it’s in the oil burner as we speak.
Grapefruit – is uplifting, restorative and reviving. Perfect in times of exhaustion. It reduces tiredness, frustration and irritability and brings about balance, positive energy and vitality, enhancing creativity and inspiration. It is also great in times of stress, depression, nervous and mental exhaustion. It helps give clarity of thought and the energy to face challenges. It is very cleansing on a physical and mental level. It also has cleansing, detoxifying and diuretic properties.
Lemon – I
think know I’ve said this before…Lemon to me is “sunshine in a bottle”, an oil for happiness and fun! It is refreshing and cleansing. It is uplifting and strengthening for the spirit. It is energising for mind and body, bringing your energy into the “now”! It is great for clearing a fuzzy mind, increasing motivation and positive decision making. It eliminates negative thoughts, depression, anxiety, apathy and stress, replacing it with optimism, laughter, stability, motivation and joy! A very nurturing oil for promoting self-care and love. It is also an immune stimulant and has cleansing and detoxifying properties.
Cardamom – is anti-fatigue, very refreshing and invigorating, while at the same time grounding and soothing. It helps reduce stress, mental fatigue and nervous exhaustion. It enhances confidence, self-care and inner calm. It is great for improving motivation, clarity of thought, openness, joy and inspiration. It is also beneficial for the digestive and respiratory system.
