9 Essential Oils For The Workday
ESSENTIAL OILS FOR THE WORKDAY
Essential Oils of plants can be a beautiful addition to our workdays, helping us combat restlessness, lack of focus, stress, anxiousness, and the wandering of the mind.
Essential oils can be used in a variety of ways. They can be diffused with a nebulizer/diffuser, diffused passively (on our clothing or wearable stones), or used topically (diluted in a carrier oil and applied to the skin).
Here are nine essential oils to help your workday along.
1. Germ Fighter Blend
Grounding + Uplifting
Our Organic Germ Fighter Blend is jam packed with everything you need to fight off outside threats. Contains the 100% pure, undiluted USDA Certified Organic essential oils of Lemon, Clove Bud, Eucalyptus Globulus, Cinnamon Cassia, and Rosemary 1,8-Cineole. Organic Germ Fighter is a Pale Blue Dot favourite and for good reason; it does its job and will continue to support a healthy immune system by helping your body get back to its natural state from the seasonal threats that have you down.
Awake + Aware
Lemongrass is known as being a helpful addition to outdoor sprays. It is refreshing and deodorizing when diffused, as well as being uplifting to the spirit. It can also be added, well-diluted, to a carrier oil to boost circulation, bringing warmth to overused muscles and joints.
Promote productivity + Concentration
Uplifting + Stimulates Mind and Memory
Our Organic Rosemary 1,8-Cineole is stimulating, warming and refreshing and can be used to help boost memory retention and staying alert. It has many skin care applications, including adding to a shampoo to aid in maintaining a healthy scalp and lustrous hair. When diffused, Organic Rosemary 1,8-Cineole can also be helpful as a respiratory support oil.
4. Blues Buster Blend
The effect of scent on our moods has been well-documented scientifically. The smell of something familiar or comforting often results in an improved mood. People around us seem friendlier, colors look brighter, music sounds sweeter! It doesn’t take much to move that subtle switch from negative to positive. Our Blues Buster Essential Oil Blend is formulated with bright, cheerful Tangerine, Pink Grapefruit, and soothing Bourbon Geranium to increase your sense of emotional well-being. Blues Busters is excellent for diffusion or a personal aromatherapy inhaler. It can also make a great addition to body care or massage products when diluted in a carrier oil to 4%.
Also available in diluted Roll On
5. Clary Sage
Balancing + Calming
Clary Sage is extracted using steam distillation from the leaves and flowering tops of the Clary Sage plant to create an essential oil that is 100% pure with absolutely no additives or fillers. This favorite amongst oil users is a go-to when it comes to women’s issues. To help relieve the issues brought on by a normal woman's menstrual cycle, Clary Sage can be used topically with a carrier oil at a 2-5% ratio, or diffused to create a balancing atmosphere. The wonderful aroma of Clary Sage is very earthy and has hints that are fruity, floral, nutty, and herbaceous. This very soothing aroma is the key blend that helps create an atmosphere that is balancing and calming when emotions are rampant.
6. Ylang Ylang
Calming + Uplifting
In the language of the Malay people, Ylang Ylang means "flower of flowers". The gorgeous blossoms of the Ylang-Ylang Tree bring to mind visions of the South Pacific. Ylang Ylang Complete is probably best known as an aphrodisiac. When diffused, it can help reduce worry, calm the mind, and help uplift mood. Add to a carrier oil for a romantic massage.
Lavender is perhaps the most well-known of the essential oils and for good reason. Lavender essential oil is renowned for its many beneficial properties, including promoting calm, relaxation, and being a nervous tension reliever. It can also be added to a carrier oil to help reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles and help soothe alterations in skin integrity, such as during sun exposure or a minor cooking burn.
Uplifting + Boosting
Lemon is one of the most easily recognized oils because of its refreshing, energizing and uplifting scent. It can help support a healthy immune system and is also frequently added to spray cleaners.
Organic Vetiver is a root oil that is jam packed with therapeutic properties. This oil is known for its abilities to promote relaxation and balance. Organic Vetiver is very popular to use before bedtime to help calm the mind. It has a very strong aroma that has an earthy, woodsy, smoky scent, but is pleasant to the senses.
