Even when we enjoy our work, it’s always nice to have time off on the weekend to do what we want, when we want. For kids, if they’ve been having a fun weekend, Sunday night means time to buckle down and do the homework they put off Friday and Saturday.
If Monday morning finds you feeling blue, use essential oils to uplift your mood and spirit. You can even start on Sunday evening.
Research shows the benefits of using essential oils to enhance your state of mind. Fragrances are carried to our brain, triggering certain emotions.
The Day Before
Sunday evening is a wonderful time to relax in the bathtub with a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil, with its calming, soothing effects. Its relaxing scent helps with insomnia and relieving stress, anxiety, and depression.
After your bath, mix a few drops of lavender with coconut oil (or other carrier oil) and rub it behind your ears or on the bottoms of your feet. Wake up feeling refreshed on Monday morning.
All Day Monday
Get your home diffuser going on Monday morning and add a few drops of Vitality Extracts Energy Essential Oil Blend. This combination of Rosemary, Juniper Berry, Juniper Needle, Silver Fir Needle, Lemongrass, Clove, Nutmeg, and Black Pepper helps uplift your mood, stimulate your mind and increase energy. It’s beneficial in clearing the mind, rejuvenating mind and body, and balancing stress and anxiety.
Vitality Extracts Stress Away Essential Oil Blend is also a good choice for your Monday morning blues. This blend contains bergamot, which is great for anytime you’re feeling down. It’s very stimulating and improves circulation of the blood, resulting in a more energetic feeling. It’s often used to balance your emotions. Ylang ylang is another ingredient of the Stress Away Blend (which you can buy separately as well), an essential oil that helps lift your spirits.
Taking a whiff of Vitality Extracts Ylang Ylang Essential Oil Blend can enhance your mood and is also beneficial in getting rid of some negative emotions. Rounding out this combination are sweet orange, pink grapefruit, and patchouli, an uplifting mixture that regenerates you, increasing mental agility and memory.
Vitality Extracts Refresh Essential Oil Blend is designed to uplift and renew, making it another good choice for Monday morning. This bright and energetic blend can help you regenerate and surmount mental fatigue. It combines Sweet Orange Oil, Camphor Oil, Cananga Oil, and Lavandin Grosso Oil.
Lemon Essential Oil is wonderful in so many ways. The zesty aroma is refreshing and clean—it’s bound to perk you up and bring a smile to your face. Lemon’s helpful for memory retention and focus, and in reducing anxiety and uplifting mood.
The essential oils or blends that bring you joy and happiness on Monday mornings can be taken with you all day. Diffuse them at home, in your car, and with diffuser jewelry. Vitality Extracts has several bracelets, necklaces, rings, and earrings available. You can also mix with carrier oil and massage into your skin.
