Our days are filled with multiple tasks that drain us so we need to find ways to increase our energy level in a natural and healthy way. Let’s face it – when it comes to health, the mainstream opinion isn’t always life-giving.
Primarily, our understanding of energy is limited. Take how we increase our energy level for example. Culturally, we equate coffee with providing energy. However, due its nature of being a stimulant, it creates crashes and stimulates the nervous system. I heard in a webinar recently it lowers your frequency for up to 3 days.
We need to learn to naturally regulate our body’s energy so we have the energy and vitality for the things we love. You know the basics – eating well, exercising, getting plenty of sleep and lowering stress. I love to use natural tools to help make my life easier. Today I’m going to share with you 3 of my favourite oils to increase energy: peppermint, eucalyptus, and breathe oil.
Truly my favourite oil when it comes to increasing your energy level. Peppermint essential oil has been shown to increase oxygen uptake to the cells, which then increases output of energy.
In fact, one study in particular showed that ingesting even a small amount of peppermint oil every day for just ten days yielded some pretty spectacular results in athletes: “the oil improved exercise performance, respiratory function, blood pressure, heart rate, and respiratory gas exchange. It also reduced resting blood pressure and heart rate. The amount of total work performed by the test subjects was increased by a whopping 51%, including an increase in the time to exhaustion of about 25%.” (source)
Today I will show you two ways to use this awesome oil.
Essential Oil Red Bull
This technique is so effective it has earned the title “Red Bull”. It wakes you up, opens your airways naturally in a high-frequency way!
1. Take 1 drop of peppermint essential oil and 1 drop of wild orange oil and rub them between your palms
2. Cup your hands together (leaving no room for air) and breathe in
3. Feel the energy
This protocol I like to call ‘Instant Energy’. It’s a real kick!
I LOVE doing this to people I meet. They are always so surprised at just how strong peppermint can be (especially dōTERRA’s). It instantly uplifts and energizes you.
1. Put one drop of peppermint essential oil on your thumb
2. Place on the roof of your mouth
3. Feel the power!
Eucalyptus trees are tall, evergreen trees that grow up to 50 feet in height and are sometimes referred to as Gum Trees.
The main chemical components of Eucalyptus radiata are eucalyptol and alpha-terpineol, making it an ideal oil to promote feelings of clear breathing and open airways and for creating a soothing massage experience. Eucalyptus oil has purifying properties that can be beneficial for the skin and for cleansing
surfaces and the air. Studies have shown that Eucalyptus oil is effective in helping lessen tension. Eucalyptus essential oil can be found in mouth rinses to freshen breath and promote oral health.
This oil is excellent for purifying your home. Just diffuse it and you will kill up to 98% of air-borne bacteria (this is what I heard at a conference one time). By opening your airways, you natural will increase oxygen which increases energy!
This is dōTERRA’s top blend for for good reason – it contains eucalyptus and a bunch of other oils that make it smell nice!
dōTERRA Breathe is a powerful mix of essential oils including Laurel Leaf, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Melaleuca, Lemon, Cardamom, Ravintsara, and Ravensara. dōTERRA Breathe maintains feelings of clear airways and easy breathing while minimizing the effects of seasonal threats. Being able to breathe properly is a direct link to being able to increase your energy level as oxygen fuels your body.
Breathe can be applied topically to the chest, back, or bottom of feet, or diffused at nighttime to calm the senses and promote a restful sleep. It’s perfect to put on at home or throughout the day to clean the air and uplift your energy!
I wasn’t going to add this because it’s not an oil but my list would not be complete without mentioning doTERRA’s Mito2Max energy supplement. Although it’s not an oil, I consider this supplement part of my “secret sauce” to having full-on energy from the beginning of my day until very late at night when I go to bed.
Everybody can relate to feeling sluggish and dragging through the day, just waiting for it to end. Mito2Max is a novel approach to a natural, lasting way to increase your energy level. It enhances energy by going straight to the source: our cells. Inside our cells reside mitochondria, the organelle responsible for the biomechanical processes of respiration and energy production. As we age, our body’s mitochondrial function becomes less efficient, making it progressively difficult to maintain our energy levels to take part in the activities we enjoy. Mito2Max supports healthy mitochondrial function, which results in improved energy levels, stamina, and aerobic capacity.
Working out helps to increase your energy, so using this supplement is incredible. It will help you increase your energy for long-term gain.
As you can see, there are plenty of ways to naturally increase your energy level. Coffee, energy drinks, and stimulant-filled dietary supplements have become a regular part of the contemporary diet. But these supplements offer a broad spectrum of harmful side effects along with the quick jolt of unnatural, and unsustainable, energy. So it’s important we use natural methods that can sustain us over the long-term. I hope you get to try one of these incredible oils I mentioned one day – you won’t regret it!
Note: Breathe oil is called Easy Air in Canada. Also, Mito2Max is only available from the US warehouse.
