Beat Blue Monday, With Our Top 5 Uplifting Essential Oils
Well, the festive season is well and truly over. The decorations are back in the attic, the kids are heading out to school, and we’re returning to the 9 to 5 grind. If you’re feeling a little low in spirits now that the holidays have passed us by, you’re not the only one! So many of us are struggling with getting back to normal, and Blue Monday is (unfortunately) here.
Known as one of the most downhearted days of the year, Blue Monday marks the toughest part of January, with many people struggling with their mental wellbeing. Whether it’s post-holiday financial stress, getting back to work or sending the kids back to school, it’s a difficult day.
We’re all about health and wellness at Scented Sky, so we’re showing you how you can beat the January blues! We’ve compiled a list of 5 of our favourite essential oils that improve your mood and lift your spirits. With gorgeous scents, these invigorating and calming blends will be your secret weapon this Blue Monday.
What Are Some Ways To Use Essential Oils?
The beauty of essential oils is that there are so many different ways to incorporate them into your daily routine! We discussed some methods of using oils on the Scented Sky Wellness Hub, including Essential Oils For Cleaning and Skincare Tips. Some of our favourite ways to feel the benefits of our top 5 uplifting oils are:
Add a few drops to your palms, and inhale throughout the day
Massage drops of your oil onto the base of your neck
Use a diffuser for a scent that goes throughout your home or office
Add a couple of drops to a warm bath
If there’s one thing about the holiday season, it takes a whole lot of energy. By the time we’re back to normal stresses, we can feel run down and underprepared to take on the world. Wild Orange essential oil is the perfect remedy for busy days!
Wild Orange has an energising and natural scent, that gets your day started with a burst of energy. Invigorating and refreshing, this oil inspires feelings of vitality and happiness.
A fabulous addition to your morning routine, we recommend putting a couple of drops to your wrist, so you can feel the benefits throughout your day.
The name of this blend created by doTERRA tells you all you need to know about the benefits of this oil! With brightening scent notes of citrus and spice, this uplifting blend is a wonderful way to get you through the trials of daily life. A sunny disposition in a bottle, doTERRA Cheer is sure to improve your mood.
The doTERRA Cheer uplifting blend helps to inspire feelings of optimism and positivity, the ideal way to beat Blue Monday. If you’re dealing with negative emotions, or are just struggling to get into the right mindset to take on the day, add a few drops to your diffuser.
One of the most difficult parts of the new year is returning to all the stress of day to day life. Whether you’re looking after your little ones, slogging through your 9 to 5 or worrying about bills, coming down from the holidays usually happens with a bump. Not to worry, we have the solution.
Lavender essential oil has been used for centuries as a destressing method and is well-loved for its calming and relaxing properties. If calming down after a long and stressful day is just what you need, we recommend adding a few drops of lavender oil to a bath before bed. Or, keep a little bit of calm with you all day with Lavender Touch.
Struggling to keep up with your new year’s resolutions? In the run-up to the end of the year, many of us make big promises to ourselves, but the reality is that by the time January rolls around we’re often too tired! If you feel like you need a little bit of extra motivation or are dealing with feelings of cynicism and doubt, then doTERRA Motivate is a fabulous way to kickstart your year.
A blend of citrus and mint oils, including peppermint and clementine, doTERRA Motivate promotes self-confidence and strength. Adding a few drops to your palm and inhaling the scent throughout the day is fantastic for staying on track. Or, use doTERRA Motivate Touch.
After the hectic pace of the holidays, it can be exhausting to come back to an even more hectic daily life. Getting through your day to day life can be seriously hard. No matter what the world throws at you, having a way to ground yourself is the best way to take on anything.
