Fatigue or "When your Get up and Go, Got up and Went!"
Ever feel like you need about 10 hours more sleep and you just got out of bed?
Fatigue is just that way. You've gotten several hours of sleep, but you just don't have the 'get up and go power' you feel you should. If you are like most folks, you have to drive yourself to fight through the fatigue.
Look out, here comes that cup of coffee or two or three! Don't want to drink so much coffee?
Essential oils might just help you to feel more energetic, productive and alive.
Do realize though that essential oils can help but if your fatigue is due to an underlying health problem the best they can do is give short term relief.
Fatigue can be caused from excess physical exertion, but emotional stress, depression, hormonal imblances, low blood pressure, poor nutrition and dieting, are just a few things that may be causing the fatigue.
If you can't figure out what is causing your fatigue, please see your doctor.
If your fatigue is due to a poorly funtioning thyroid or if you are near adrenal gland 'burnout', you should seek further medical care. Aromatherapy can still be used complementary to any treatment for both.
Make sure you do eat right, exercise appropriately, get plenty of uninterrupted sleep and do something for fun.
Any of the Citrus oils Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Petitgrain, Neroli, and Bergamot are great at stimulation and boosting your energy. So are Peppermint and Spearmint.
While you are combatting fatigue you should pamper yourself. Take stimulating aromatherapy baths or showers first thing in the morning. Inhale Energy boosting essential oil blends throughout the day.
Remember to quit using stimulating blends by 6:00 in the evening so you will be able to relax to get a good nights rest.
The following blends are great and may be all you need for that early morning or after lunch pickme up.
Rosemary - 8 drops
Elemi - 6 drops
Peppermint - 4 drops
