Many people work long hours and book loads of personal activities, which leaves them drained and constantly preoccupied. Yoga, meditation, and breathing exercises help us manage our responsibilities with more calm and ease, but essential oils can really bring us one step further. Certain oils help lift our emotional states when we are overwhelmed and downtrodden with responsibilities.
The best part about turning to essential oils instead of caffeine, sugary energy drinks, or prescription medications is that there are no adverse side effects. Plus, they smell great!
Here are a few mood-boosting, productivity-packed oil options to keep on hand at your desk. You can mix them in a blend with a base lotion or cream, add a few drops to a diffuser, or use them to saturate a cotton ball and inhale as needed.
