3 essential oils to boost your energy
Ginger essential oil
Extracted from the root of the ginger plant, this essential oil is recognized for its stimulating and invigorating properties to help the body regain its dynamism. It contains a multitude of vitamins (B1, B2, B3, C) and minerals (magnesium, calcium, sodium, iron) which help to replenish energy.
For immediate effect, you can pour a few drops of ginger essential oil into a tissue and inhale deeply. Its spicy and warm smell brings serenity and well-being...
Peppermint essential oil
Extracted from the leaves of the peppermint plant, peppermint essential oil is used for its cooling and stimulating properties, which help boost energy and focus.
Like the majority of essential oils in the mint family, it can uplift your spirits, improve focus, and eliminate brain fog states that can kick in after many hours of work.
The menthol present in peppermint essential oil is extremely concentrated and therefore very effective in relieving fatigue and boosting concentration. Its fresh, minty scent is also known to help with nausea, motion sickness, and headaches.
Did you know? Add a few drops of peppermint essential oil to your shampoo to stimulate your scalp and improve blood circulation.
Lemon essential oil
Lemon essential oil is extracted from the peel of the lemon fruit. It is known for its revitalizing and energizing properties which relieve mental fatigue and boost concentration.
How does it work? Lemon essential oil is a powerful mental tonic that contains natural compounds such as limonene and pinene with stimulating properties for the central nervous system.
By inhaling this essential oil, the volatile molecules are absorbed by the olfactory receptors located in the nose which will stimulate the production of neurotransmitters responsible for regulating mood, energy, and motivation. During states of intense fatigue, it is also known to soothe nausea.
Traditionally, citrus scents are considered stimulants and energy boosters: add a few drops of lemon essential oil to a bowl of hot water to fully benefit from its energizing properties...
#OFATIPS: our advice for your daily life
In addition to essential oils, there are other natural tips to boost your energy and regain your concentration. Here are some simple tips that can help you feel better.
Get enough sleep: During sleep, the body works to eliminate toxins, strengthen the immune system, regulate hormones, and consolidate the memories and learnings of the day. It is also during sleep that energy levels are restored and fatigue is reduced.
When we don't get enough sleep, our body cannot perform these regenerative processes optimally, which can lead to an accumulation of physical and mental fatigue. It is therefore advisable to sleep about 8 hours a night.
Avoid processed foods: Processed foods can contain additives and sugars that cause energy spikes and crashes (added sugars, saturated fats, food additives). Choose whole, nutrient-dense foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and veggies.
Practice meditation: A few minutes of meditation each day can help you feel calmer and more centered in the present moment to recharge the batteries in vitality.
Have you ever tried mindfulness meditation? Sit in a quiet, comfortable place, close your eyes, and focus on your breathing. Become aware of each inhale and exhale, trying not to let other thoughts distract you. If your mind wanders, gently bring it back to your breath. Do this exercise for a few minutes every day to improve your mental and emotional well-being.
The most important thing: don't forget to be patient with yourself and to listen to your body to find the most suitable method for you.
