We all have those days where we have to drag ourselves out of bed. Perhaps the kids were up throughout the night, we didn’t get quality sleep due to nerves, or we’re simply extra tired. And some days our bed is just so comfortable and cozy that we don’t want to move, right?
On those days we might need a little something extra to put some pep in our step and prepare us to face the day – and I’m not talking about coffee, although coffee is also a must in my book! I’m talking about an uplifting essential oil blend.
Essential oils are fantastic for lifting your mood and helping you to feel energized. Sometimes all you need is a little aromatherapy and a few minutes to yourself. I love keeping some of my favorite roller bottles of essential oil blends right on my nightstand to use right upon waking and I even carry this blend in my purse for whenever I need a “pick-me-up”.
This blend is full of oils that will help lift your mood and prepare you for the day:
Geranium essential oil is a stress reliever and the scent is uplifting. It helps to reduce feelings of sadness, anxiety, tension, and fatigue. This is turns help to increase a sense of well-being and relaxation. This oil also helps to increase concentration and improve mental function. It is also thought to balance the hormones and emotions.
Grapefruit essential oil is one that is thought to help lift depression. It is believed to have a stimulating effect on the brain, which can help make you more active and alert. It does this by stimulating the nervous system. It is a natural energizer!
Bergamot essential oil is another mood lifter. It is a great oil for easing worry and calming nervousness. This oil is also good for helping to uplift and decrease depression. Bergamot essential oil is stimulating and will increase your energy by improving your circulation. This oil promotes cheerfulness.
Please keep in mind that this blend contains citrus essential oils which are considered to be phototoxic. This means that they should not be put on skin that will be exposed to sunlight because you could have a reaction. You are at less risk since the oils are diluted but the risk is there so please use this blend in an area that will be covered by clothing.
How to Make the DIY Rise and Shine Roller (Uplifting Essential Oil Blend)
- 1 tablespoon fractionated coconut oil or jojoba oil or grapeseed oil
- 5 drops geranium essential oil
- 8 drops grapefruit essential oil
- 6 drops bergamot essential oil
- Roller ball bottle
There are 2 ways to do this:
First way: Measure the fractionated coconut oil into a small bowl. Then, add the essential oils to the bowl and mix well.
Using a dropper (or a small funnel) add the mixture to your roller ball bottle.
Second way: (this is how I do it) add the essential oils directly in the bottle and fill up the rest of the bottle with the carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil).
Top with the ball and lid. Label the bottle so you don’t forget what blend is this.
To use: Roll the essential oil blend on your temples, forehead, or the back of your neck.
You could also use this blend of oils in a diffuser, but if you do I suggest adding a few more drops of each oil.
Hope you enjoy this uplifting essential oil blend!
