Essential Oils are great for so many different things, but did you know you can use essential oils to increase energy and concentration? Before October’s Simply Earth box I had no idea! I was blown away by how well the energy roll on worked so I did a little digging on Simply Earth’s website and found 7 ways that you can use essential oils to increase your energy and concentration. Next time you’re feeling a little blah try one of these DIY’s rather than reaching for your usual caffeine or sugar pick me up.
All of these essential oil recipes use at least one of 3 main oils, Energy, Rosemary, and Citrus Burst, each of which are included in the October Simply Earth Box. Before digging into the DIY’s I’ll touch base on more of the specifics of each of these essential oils.
Energy is a blend of lemon, eucalyptus, and peppermint. It is the perfect mix to get you moving and boost your energy. When used in a roll on it will help you tackle any task.
Rosemary is very popular in the kitchen and has many health benefits as an essential oil. It relieves sore muscles, clears the mind, uplifts your mood, warms the body, and inhibits the growth of fungus. It adds a nice freshness that perks you up when being diffused or used in an inhaler.
Citrus Burst is a blend of lime, lemon, grapefruit, orange, and bergamot. This citrus blend is great for cleaning, eliminating odors, and boosting your mood. You can diffuse it in the morning to help get you going for the day, or use it in an inhaler to give you that bit of a boost to get you more in the mood to get some work done.
