Don’t know about you, but after the hectic days and all the commotion of the holidays we all look forward to some quieter times in January and February. But once we are all caught up and have gathered our wits we might feel let down, maybe even bored.
Bored with winter that is! We all get tired of the cold, ice and snow, tired of being cooped up.
Worse yet all the stress of the holidays and exposure to folks from distant places we could even wind up feeling physically ill.
Viruses from other folks can spread easily at the holidays and really get us come January.
Anyway, we may feel a little let down. Not feeling good both physically and emotionally can make you feel mildly depressed.
Although you aren’t necessarily clinically depressed you do have the blues and a little Cabin Fever. Getting outdoors and getting some fresh air will help a little but you can stop a lot of those ‘downer’ feelings and brighten your attitude.
How? Simply do some of your favorite things (hobbies) AND while you are doing them diffuse and smell your favorite essential oils.
Your favorite essential oils should bring a smile to your face after a few minutes. And if you like the citrus and mint essential oils you might even become energized!!
So whether you diffuse essential oils before or after you take a walk outdoors or if the weather doesn’t permit a stroll -even opening a window or door and letting some fresh air in along with diffusing the essential oils you should begin to feel rejuvenated.
Don’t know what your favorites are? Well, start with some of the lighter scents of the citrus family – Lemon, Orange, Grapefruit, Lime and Tangerine.
Or maybe you like smelling some of the mints – Peppermint or Spearmint. Or mix some of each.
As many of you know one of my favorite blends is Grapefruit and Spearmint.
This blend reminds me of a certain brand of chewing gum. I love that scent. It will immediately perk me up.
Some folks respond the best to Floral scents. Ylang-Ylang is well known to be euphoric and may make you feel giggly inside!
There are many essential oils that can be very uplifting. Then there are other oils that just make you feel better both emotionally and physically.
So when you feel a little down, first smell your favorites or try any of these either singly or blend 2-3 together and make your own special blends:
Bergamot, Cajeput, Geranium, Jasmine, Melissa, Mandarin, Neroli, Petitgrain, Rose, Roman Chamomile, Rosemary, Basil, Black Pepper, Ginger, Juniper berry, Lavender, Lemongrass and Sandalwood.
If the ‘winter time blues’ are not letting you rest properly be sure to use a good bedtime routine and avoid excessive caffeine during the day and evening.
And as often as possible get out in the morning sunshine and get a little exercise. These all help to make the winter time pass much more quickly.
Citrus Blend, Mint Energizing blend, Invigorating, Elation blend, Enlighten blend, Inspiration blend, Full of Life, Refreshing blend, Revitalizing blend or any of those that you might just enjoy.
Calming blend although not necessarily made to be uplifting, smells so wonderful (it’s our best seller) you might enjoy it and that in itself will be a wonderful and welcome delight!
Just remember winter doesn’t last forever and before you know it you’ll really start to feel like spring is just around the corner.
For now – just sit back, close your eyes and smell those wonderful scents and dream of summer!To the Top of the Page
