best ways to energize

doTERRA Essential Oils

I. Love. doTERRA essential oils. Seriously. They are the purest, highest quality essential oil brand I have ever used and are well worth the price. Hands down, essential oils are the best way to energize yourself in the morning. They take just a second to apply, but you can enjoy the scent for hours to come. BTW did I mention that I love doTERRA essential oils? 🙂

 Just so you are aware, I am NOT a doTERRA rep. I just love their product. The first thing I bought from them was the 10-piece Family Essential Kit because I wasn’t sure what I would like. You can find the Family Essential Kit on Amazon by clicking here. The lavender is obviously great for bedtime or when you need help calming down and I found the oregano to be useful as a natural allergy remedy, but let’s talk about the energizing essential oils in the kit that are useful in the morning! Peppermint and lemon are my go-to’s when I need to be alert immediately.

Renewed Health Essential Oil Set

If the doTERRA set is too pricey, this 14-piece Renewed Health Essential Oil Set is pretty awesome as well. I bought this because it was organic and looked interesting. I like it a lot and use the set frequently – especially the orange and the Chill-Ax-In blend. You can find it on Amazon by clicking here.


NOW Solutions Uplifting Essential Oils Kit

This inexpensive 4-piece essential oil kit from NOW Solutions focuses on energizing you and improving your mood in the morning. I love it! It works great! This is a set I like to buy for friends who are new to getting up early. It’s my way of saying “welcome to the club!” You can find it on Amazon by clicking here.


Essential Oil Diffuser

You don’t have to just use essential oils on your skin. You can also use a diffuser and turn them into air fresheners. To be honest, I didn’t care for the doTERRA Petal Diffuser; I thought it was overpriced and didn’t work any better than cheaper ones. I prefer the bamboo essential oil diffuser from Amazon that you can see by clicking on this link


Mint Body Wash

Nothing wakes me up better or quicker than a morning shower with my mint body wash. This one from Archipelago Botanicals is amazing. The best part about it is that it’s refreshing, but the scent is not overpowering, which makes it a great choice for both men and women. It is 33 oz and if you use just a little bit of it on a puffy sponge, it will last a long time. They used to carry it at Ulta stores, but not anymore. Click here to see it on Amazon. Ahh-mazing stuff. My fav.
