Boosting Your Energy Using Essential Oils

Boosting Your Energy Using Essential Oils
A few years ago, I won't say exactly how many, I found that I was entering into the world of peri-menopause. I was tired all the time and didn't immediately relate my symptoms to hormone imbalance.

A famous herbalist was speaking in my city, so I made sure I attended the lecture. I left with an appointment to see the woman that would be his representative in my city. My thinking was "what the heck", I'd tried prescriptions written by my doctor and they just made me loopy. I bit the bullet and laid out the money for herbs.

At the same time, I began a training on the use of essential oils, learning all about their benefits and features. The herbs and oils saved my life.

Herbs and Oils to the Rescue

While I've never played into the superwoman role, I was living a very stressed lifestyle. My Mom was ill and it was a two hour drive one-way on a good day to the home of my parents. I worked Monday thru Friday and would leave for their house on Friday evening with my family in tow.

We'd clean, do laundry, pay the bills and cook up a weeks worth of food for my dad to take from the freezer as needed. Talk about caretaker from afar, it was grueling and they simply refused to have anyone else come into their space nor did they want to move in with us.

Upon returning to our home, I'd draw a bath and take long soaks with candles burning, oils diffusing and tears streaming down my face. My essential oils became my best friends.

My Favorite Oils for Boosting Energy and Stress Relief

Bergamot, Rosemary, Frankincense, Lavender, Peppermint and a host of citrus essential oils. Orange, Grapefruit, lime and Mandarin are some of my favorite citrus oils.

Bergamot calms and uplifts your mind and body while helping to alleviate fatigue, tension and anxiety.

Rosemary energizes and renews your mind while help you focus and boost memory.

Frankincense provides a sense of peace and vitality while supporting your immune health and cellular function at the same time.

Lavender is the be all end all oil of relaxation. And it’s oh so good for your skin.

Peppermint enlivens your senses, encourages a healthy respiratory system and cools and invigorates your skin. It’s also good for helping to improve focus and alertness.

The Citrus Oils in general are wonderful uplifting oils. They can promote a positive mood, emotional health and well-being and they’re great for purifying the air.

I've learned over the years just how important it is to take care of yourself first. I put out so much energy until I was literally wearing myself out. The beauty and benefits of the oils helped me revive my energy and sanity.

Essential oils are considered an alternative healing model. Don't take my word for it, give them a try and see how they work for you. You're guaranteed to love them and their beautiful aromas. I'll talk about herbs in another article.

That's it for this week.
