Essential Oils to Stimulate the Senses

December 17, 2019

Are you looking for something that can help activate mental energy and promote clarity other than stimulants such as coffee? Essential oils can invigorate your senses, give you energy, and make you feel revitalized. Citrus, menthol, and herbal oils are known to have the most stimulating effects.

Clementine aids in refreshing and revitalizing one’s overall mood and feelings of wellness.

Peppermint stimulates circulation, reduces nervous tension, soothes irritability, boosts energy, balances hormones, enhances mental focus and reduces headaches.

Rosemary can improve alertness, eliminate negative moods, and increase the retention of information by enhancing concentration.

Clementine, peppermint, and rosemary together create a blend that is high in monoterpenes, which contain uplifting properties and can help with mental energy while promoting a stronger sense of concentration.

A doTerra blend, Thinker, is a roll on created for children that uses all three of these oils to help create a supportive and positive environment for enhanced creativity and focus. I use it myself to start my day!

Another blend called Motivate is formulated with a blend of citrus, herbs, vanilla, and mint. It will help you unleash your creative powers and ward off pessimism!

Essential oils are a great compliment to a daily routine to awaken the senses, inspire, and motivate!
