Externally we’re all being positive and talking a good game. Our private feelings may be a different matter!
A New Year brings new opportunities and the chance to make new plans and follow new dreams. It can also be a daunting time if you’re low on confidence, energy and belief.
A few days of Aromatherapy inhalation can help to create a positive atmosphere and a confident mood.
It’s as easy as adding a few drops of certain pure essential oils to a burner or vaporiser. Alternatively you can add them to a hanky, the floor of your morning shower or just add the blend to a small bottle and inhale as required.
Here are a couple of blends for you to try. They use oils with boosting and mood enhancing properties.
3 drops Bergamot
2 drops Clary Sage
Both Bergamot and Clary Sage are uplifting oils which can help to balance the emotions, instil a positive attitude and increase confidence.
2 drops Lemon
1 drop Ylang Ylang
1 drop Grapefruit
Lemon is a particularly uplifting oil which can help to lift a dark mood. Ylang Ylang helps to keep you relaxed and calm while Grapefruit is an energising oil which can again help to lift the emotions and provide a positive outlook.
These blends together with some positive thinking will help to make the transition back to work that little bit easier.
