Essential oil recommendations
When you want to relax
Lavender (lavendula angustifolia), which releases stress and soothes anger; sandalwood (santalum album), which calms the mood with its exotic scent; eucalyptus narrow leaf (eucalyptus, radiata), with a crisp scent that invites deep breathing; and bergamot (citrus aurantium ssp bergamia), which helps ease depression with its citrusy scent.
When you want to feel refreshed
When you want to refresh your mood and regain vitality for tomorrow: peppermint (mentha x piperita), which is helpful for awakening you and changing your mood; lemon (citrus limonum), which functions to recover energy with its fresh scent; and grapefruit (citrus paradisi), which energizes you with its clean, fresh scent.
When you’re feeling down
When you’re feeling down from work or relationship issues, we recommend essential oils that will brighten and boost your mood, such as: sweet orange (citrus sinensis), which relaxes anxiety and tension; ylang-ylang (cananga odorata), which calms the mind; jasmine sambac (jasminum sambac L.aiton), which brings a feeling of happiness.
When you have a headache
For a headache, you should approach both body and mind: the crisp scent of rosemary cineole 1.8 (rosmarinus officinalis, Cineole 1.8) is recommended for both headaches and migraines; lavender (lavendula angustifolia) calms the mind and eases pain; clary sage (salvia sclarea) restores the mind’s balance and helps to ease pain.
When you are cold
If you are very sensitive to cold, with symptoms such as having trouble sleeping because of cold hands and feet even in the summer: lemon (citrus limonum), which promotes blood flow; black spruce (abies nigra), which is nicely compatible with citrus essential oils; and rosemary cineole 1.8 (rosmarinus officinalis, Cineole 1.8), which is also effective for cold hands and feet because it promotes blood circulation.
When you want to detox
When you want to detox because your body feels somewhat heavy and bloated: grapefruit (citrus paradisi) or cedarwood (cedrus altanica), which stimulate the lymph system and help circulation; cypress (Cupressus sempervirens), with a spicy tree scent that will help remove excessive fatigue from the body and mind.
* Certain citrus essential oils or certain skin conditions may stimulate the skin. Halt use if you feel stimulation and rinse off immediately.
