We’ve all had those days where we have to drag ourselves out of bed and prepare for work. Admit it, Mondays are the worst. There’s so much tasks to be completed and Fridays seem so out of reach.
How about a pick-me-up essential oil blend? I’ve collated some of our favourite essential oil blends that you could either diffuse or apply to achieve a calming effect.
#1. Lavender, Orange and Frankincense
There are so many known benefits of smelling lavender. And research has shown that the fragrance from the oil is beneficial to help destress and great for people who are suffering from sleep disorder and insomnia. Orange carries an uplifting effect to our moods, just like frankincense.
#2. Bergamot, Ylang-Ylang and Patchouli
In the past, practitioners added bergamot with water and consumed it as a health tonic. It contains antiseptic and pain relieving properties, and hence is a favourite among many. Ylang-Ylang and patchouli have a relaxing fragrance, which makes them a popular option to include in scented candles as a base note. Their scent helps us to destress and relax, which is a good option to use before you head to bed.
● 5 drops of bergamot
● 3 drops of patchouli
● 2 drops of ylang-ylang
#3. Sandalwood, Bergamot and Clary Sage
Sandalwood is useful for enhancing our moods. The grounding aroma of Sandalwood helps to calm any unsettling emotions. Some other benefits of sandalwood includes:
● Managing anxiety
● Increasing alertness
Clary sage oil is known for its calming properties and promoting a restful night’s sleep. This is definitely one of my favourite blends!
● 5 drops of sandalwood
● 2 drops of bergamot
● 3 drops of clary sage
I hope that the above blends can benefit you and chase your Monday blues away! Share with us! What are some of your personal blends and why they work for you? We’d love to know!
