Relax and Recharge with the Help of Essential Oils Essential oils, natural extracts from plants with aromatic scents and healing properties, have been used to help the mind relax and the body recharge for quite some time. In our daily life there are many stressors that cause us to tire, worry, lose concentration or even cause physical interruptions in our day, such headaches or sleepiness. All of these mental and physical stressors deplete our energy, making it difficult to get through the daily grind. Luckily, essential oils can help recharge our body and mind, as well as provide additional emotional and physical support, so that we not only get through the day, but get through it happily and healthy.

Essential oils can help you recharge due to their ability to stimulate your senses in a way that makes you feel energetic and revitalized. Essential oils are so potent because the aromatic compounds pads directly to the brain, triggering a response based on the specific oil. Because our brain controls stress and exhaustion, the use of an essential oil can have almost immediate results on our energy levels. When you are feeling sluggish or down, certain essential oils can help to elevate mood, increase energy, reduce anxiety and increase productivity.

Citrus essential oils, such as Grapefruit essential oil, Lemon essential oil, Lime essential oil and Orange essential oil, are some of the most common oils used to recharge and improve energy. The aroma of citrus oil are uplifting and help to replace negative energy with a positive and revitalized outlook on the day ahead. When inhaled the strong aroma of a citrus oils activate cells in the body that communicate with the brain, which then responds by signaling increased energy to the body almost immediately. These sweet, tangy and tart oils not only promote energy but also improve concentration and function as antidepressants. The most effective methods of use for citrus oils are to inhale directly or diffuse.

Herbal essential oils also provide a revitalizing boost to energy levels. Rosemary essential oil, Basil essential oil, Lemongrass essential oil and Thyme essential oil have powerful healing properties, such as increased blood flow to the brain improving alertness, stress reduction, increased energy and relieving mental fog. Like the citrus oils, herbal oils can be inhaled directly or diffused. As a bonus, Lemongrass can be mixed with a carrier oil and applied topically to the temples to help release stress and improve energy.

Minty essential oils, such as Spearmint essential oil, Peppermint essential oil and Eucalyptus essential oil, are wonderful options to improve mental clarity and energy levels. The use of a minty essential oil would be beneficial both first thing in the morning to feel refreshed and to snap out of a mid-afternoon lull. These essential oils will provide you with a similar boost to caffeine without the jitters. As an added bonus, these oils also help prior to workouts as they are known to boost physical performance. Minty essential oils can be diffused, inhaled directly or combined with a carrier oil and applied topically on the temples or under the nose.

Essential oils with a kick, such as Ginger essential oil and Cinnamon essential oil, can provide a kick of energy to refuel the body and mind. Cinnamon essential oil has been known to regulate blood sugar levels; irregular blood sugar levels cause physical and mental exhaustion that can be relieved with Cinnamon. Ginger essential oil is especially beneficial when you’re sleep-deprived as it fights feelings of sluggishness. The benefits of these oils can be experienced by inhaling directly or diffusing.

Of course, some of the most crucial factors in maintaining beneficial energy levels is adequate sleep, proper diet and exercise. Those natural endorphin boosters and healthy ways of life are always things to strive for to not only live energetically, but also holistically, happily and healthy. But even when we do our best to stay healthy and active, there are still days that drag us down. So, when life gets in the way, the natural energy boosting effects of essential oils can help you get through the day with energy and a positive attitude.
