top eight essential oils for your morning routine

If you find it difficult to get up in the morning, you’ll likely benefit from adding essential oils into your morning routine. Much like essential oils to help with sleep, there are essential oils available that can provide you with an energy boost for the rest of the day. So ditch that cup of coffee and try some of the best essential oils for waking you up and preparing you for the day.

Lemon essential oil is particularly effective at promoting concentration, in addition to providing relaxation for individuals who struggle with stress or anxiety. Additionally, it can help provide a significant boost to the immune system which could be useful for individuals who get sick often.1

morning routineOther Citrus Essential Oils (Grapefruit and Orange)

Citrus, in general, is a good option because it has the ability to boost the body’s natural production of serotonin, a hormone designed to help boost mood and make you feel happier. Along with this, serotonin can play a critical role in helping minimize stress hormone levels in the body.2

It has also been proven effective in stimulating the mind. In fact, a study conducted on a group of Alzheimer’s patients found that citrus essential oil blends, including lemon and orange essential oils, helped improve overall cognitive function.3

Peppermint Essential Oilmorning routine

Peppermint is a refreshing scent that can provide significant benefits when incorporated into your morning routine. This popular oil can provide a range of benefits to boost morning productivity, including improving focus and concentration.4

In fact, a 2008 study concluded that the scent of peppermint essential oil resulted in significant improvements on memory and alertness levels in participants.5

rosemaryRosemary Essential Oil

Rosemary essential oil has been shown to increase blood flow to the brain. This is primarily because rosemary oil contains cineole which is known to have a positive effect on blood flow to the brain. Thus, it can help boost alertness.6


Thyme Essential Oil

Thyme is another oil that can provide a significant boost in the morning. Not only does it provide your immune system with proper support, but it has also been shown to improve mood. Additionally, it has been shown to alleviate stress, leaving you ready to take on the day relaxed and energized.7

basilBasil Essential Oil

Basil is naturally energizing and stimulating. In fact, it works by stimulating the adrenal glands which can help individuals who suffer from brain fog in the morning.8

Ginger Essential Oilmorning routine

When incorporated into your morning routine, ginger essential oil can do everything from stimulating the mind and reducing tiredness overall. This makes it a great option for boosting energy in the morning.9
