How to Boost Your Energy
Start the new season refreshed, revitalised and sweep away winter blues by using the power of plants to boost your energy. We share plant-based uplifting morning rituals, positive pick me ups and fatigue-busting smoothies.
There are two types of plants that will help lift your spirits. Firstly citrus essential oils are a great energy pick-me-up, they stimulate the brain to promote happiness and encourage uplifting feelings. Begin your day with a energizing tangerine bath, add 2-3 drops of oil to your bath, the revitalizing scent and energy boosting properties are the perfect way to kick start your day. Alternatively, add a few drops to a diffuser, to promote a more upbeat and positive aura in your home or office. Lemon oil is also great for refreshing your mind and eliminating any negativity. Replace caffeinated or high sugar drinks with lemon oil water, just add drops to water for a calming beverage. If you’re looking for a more nutrient-packed energy boost, a grapefruit, pineapple and spinach smoothie, is perfect when you feel your energy levels dipping. Grapefruit is rich in folate, vitamin c and natural sugars which boosts energy levels and improves mental capacity.
If you prefer something less citrusy, herbal scents will also help to replenish low energy levels, due to their ability to promote deep breathing, which in turn oxygenates the brain and increases awareness. Begin your day with a eucalyptus shower, hang a few long stems on your shower head just don’t hang them in the water flow, we suggest having them either behind or to the side. The steam from the shower releases eucalyptus essential oils, which will awaken the senses, clear your mind and improve your breathing. Spearmint can be used to boost your energy levels, add 2 - 3 drops of spearmint essential oil to 10 ml of carrier oil and mix well in a glass bottle. Apply 1 - 2 drops of this blend to your forehead, temples, back of neck, throat and chest to help you feel calm whenever you’re overly stressed.
