Aromatherapy oils can work wonders when you feel tired and lethargic, lifting your mood and boosting your energy levels.
We often think of aromatherapy as something to help us relax and unwind at the end of a long day. However, many oils can work just as well to get you moving in a morning or revive tired muscles and a flagging mind in the middle of the day.
Quick to the point
Clear, fresh scents are best for waking up and giving you a burst of energy, and these are most effective when mixed with cold water, for example, in cold showers or compresses.
Scented candles or incense sticks, that fill your home with zesty, uplifting aromas are also ideal.
