Top 10 Essential Oils for Fatigue

by Jodi Cohen |

How is your energy throughout the day? Do you wake up feeling refreshed?  Or do you rely on the morning cup of coffee and a muffin to get you going?  Do you start yawning in the early afternoon?  Or perhaps crave another cup of java to keep you going?  Or feel tired during or after exercise?

If you experience any energy dips during the day, it could be an early warning sign. Fatigue can be an important clue that we are draining the body’s vitality faster than it is being replaced.  Fatigue results when the body is unable to produce sufficient energy. Essential Oils for fatigue can keep your energy up and help you throughout the day.

While our society seems encourages us to push through our fatigue with mottos like “no rest for the weary” or “you can sleep when you’re dead”, I would encourage you not just to push through,  but also to recognize that fatigue often represents the body crying out for help in the early stages of illness.

 

Essential Oils for Fatigue

Stress Support Kit™ – including Circadian Rhythm™, Adrenal™, and Hypothalamus™ — Fatigue often develops when we are chronically stressed and overworked. Continually pushing ourselves to function often further depletes the body’s limited reserves. When we balance our stress (and our body’s stress response organs), we can return to balance and heal our fatigue.

 

Gut Repair Kit™ – including Intestinal Mucosa™, Anti-Inflammatory™, and Parasympathetic™ – It requires significant energy expenditure by the gut to transform food into useable nutrients and to store or discard that which cannot be used. Any disturbance in the digestive process both requires more energy to process and yields fewer nutrients to fuel the body.  Healing the gut can improve digestion and absorption of energy boosting nutrients and help reduce the ingestion of toxins that require ample energy to store or discard.

 

Blood Sugar Support Kit™ – including Liver™, Pancreas™, and Adrenal™ – Blood sugar, or glucose levels in the blood, is the primary source of energy for the body’s cells. If levels spike too high or dip too low, it impacts our internal stability, trigger fatigue and often sugar and caffeine cravings.

 

Detoxification Support™ — including Liver™, Gall Bladder™ and Parasympathetic™ –the ability of the body to discard toxins and repair tissues is highly energy intensive. Supporting the body as it eliminates stored toxins can free up amply energy.

 

Sleep™ –Lack of rest and relaxation lowers the body’s supply of energy. Sleep deprivation leads to lowering of immune function, an increase in the inflammatory response and a build-up of toxins all of which can, in turn, increase fatigue.

 

Emotion Support™ – Stressful emotions and corresponding thought patterns can be exhausting and negatively impact our stress response, digestive and immune function and health. When addressing the root cause of fatigue, it is important to start to work through any extensive or ongoing emotional distress.

 

Energize™ – formulated with many stimulatory oils including Peppermint, Black pepper and spearmint to help reduce fatigue and help you feel energetic throughout the day.

 

Focus™ – Formulated with several stimulatory oils including Rosemary, Peppermint and Basil, Focus enhances alertness, awakens the brain and is great for keeping you awake and concentrating.

 

Lymph™ —  Formulated with stimulatory oils like spearmint to increase circulation of lymphatic fluid for optimal delivery of nutrients to cells and removal of waste from the cells.

 

Peppermint™ An excellent oil to relieve mental fatigue.

 

I understand that healing the underlying symptoms can take time and you might need to stay awake and alert during that period.  The oils above are ideal for treating symptoms while you address the underlying cause.  Just take care not to abuse them and force yourself into greater fatigue.
