Wake up and get energized!
Essential oils are so much more than a great scent. They have the power to lift your mood and boost your energy levels so you can feel your best and make the most of each and every day. Essential oil’s ability to increase energy levels, perk up the senses and awaken the mind is backed by science and proven to be an effective natural alternative to caffeine and other stimulants.
There are two essential oil families that are known to wake up and energize: citrus oils & mint oils.
Citrus essential oils are known to boost mood, fight fatigue and invigorate the mind and body. They are the perfect oil to wake up with in the morning for an extra energy kick. Citrus essential oils have been proven to stimulate the area of the brain that promotes uplifting feelings and happiness. A 2010 study done by Neurosciences Journal found that lemon essential oil significantly enhanced the attention level, concentration, cognitive performance, mood and memory of students during the learning process.1
Along with lemon, citrus scents include orange, bergamot and grapefruit.
Our Organic Citrus Glow™ Essential Oil Blend has bright, citrus notes that help to lift spirits, promote mental clarity and focus as well as naturally energize. Citrus Glow is the perfect essential oil to help you wake up and conquer the day. It contains a mixture of citrus oils including Orange, Lemon, Pink Grapefruit, Bergamot, and a little Vanilla for a dose of extra bliss.
Looking for energy to take with you on the go? Try our Citrus Glow roll-on, the perfect pocket-sized oil that is pre-diluted for easy and safe application on the go.
Sick of feeling tired every afternoon? Mint essential oils are perfect oils for fighting the afternoon slump and keeping you energized and focused all day long. One of our favorite mint oils is Peppermint essential oil.
Peppermint is known for not only improving energy levels, but also helps to increase concentration and prevent fatigue. Peppermint is the perfect essential oil to get you through a busy work or school day and can even keep you in the zone during a tough workout. Studies have shown that “peppermint essential oil, which is most widely used to prevent fatigue, significantly improves exercise performance” so you can work out longer and harder.2
Our Peppermint Essential Oil Roll-on is the perfect oil to toss in your work or gym bag so you can increase your focus and maintain your energy levels throughout the day.
So, whether you are trying to wake up with a little more energy or maintain your energy and focus better throughout the day, give these essential oils a try.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and if there’s one thing you hear more than anything it’s how important self-care is to overall wellbeing. What does that mean? Just as every person is an individual, what feeds our soul and nourishes our spirit—and what we need at this moment in our life—looks very different for each person and may change throughout our lives. The challenge is finding and creating habits that fit best with your lifestyle. The great news is that establishing one good habit feeds another. For example, if you exercise more, you are more likely to get better sleep, which will in turn help to clear your mind and regain your focus.
