8 Essential Oils To Help You Feel Great
Trying to get into work mode on a Monday morning? Slogging through that mid-week slump? We all know the feeling! Thankfully, these 8 essential oils have all-natural mood-boosting properties!
Peppermint: This essential oil’s menthol content has cooling effects. But peppermint is good for more than just soothing tired muscles. Peppermint also stimulates the mind! Try diffusing peppermint essential oil when problem-solving or tackling a creative project.
Rosemary: Rosemary is the perfect antidote to that Monday morning fog! Its stimulating properties fight physical exhaustion and mental sluggishness. Rosemary essential oil has been proven to reduce cortisol. Cortisol is the stress hormone that can cause weight gain, acne, fatigue, high blood pressure, headaches, and more.

Orange: It’s more than just a nice smell. Orange essential oil contains a high percentage of limonene, a natural chemical that can reduce anxiety, lower heart rate, and ease stress. Isn’t that what we all need?
Lemon: Some days we all struggle with simply waking up! Lemon essential oil contains clarifying properties that awaken the senses. Instead of overdoing it on the espresso, why not apply a few drops of properly diluted lemon essential oil to your pressure points? Or diffuse lemon in your workspace!
Eucalyptus: Most of us know eucalyptus as a botanical that opens airways and improves breathing. But did you know that eucalyptus also stimulates the brain and improves energy? Add a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil to your diffuser when you’re feeling mentally clogged.
Lemongrass: With a light citrus scent that invigorates the senses, lemongrass essential oil is often used in spas because it helps to ease stress and improve clarity. Lemongrass is a great essential oil to use when a work project, presentation, or meeting is causing you anxiety.
