Aromatherapy provides some effective solutions for combating fatigue using a few common essential oils. Now, these blends are not intended to make up for your own body's depleted energy, but can help support fatigued adrenal glands, perhaps returning you to a state of normalicy a little quicker. Further, a stimulating 'morning' blend can be used to wean you away from a high dose of caffeine, a chemical which in the long run will leave you much worse for wear.
Spruce essential oil is noted in Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt's 'Advanced Aromatherpy' to restore depleted adrenal glands. Blending with Pine essential oil can be particularly effective - the recommended recipe is this: Combine equal parts of Spruce and Pine essential oils and dilute to 10% in Hazelnut oil. For example, add 1.5ml Spruce and 1.5 ml Pine to 27ml Hazelnut oil to make 30ml (approx. 1 ounce) of this blend. Apply regularly to the kidney area to be absorbed in the region of the adrenal glands. The blend is intended to strengthen adrenal function, without the 'net-loss' stimulation of coffee. Besides feeling a little more 'human', you'll smell like the middle of a vast conifer forest!
For a 'morning pick-me-up' blend, Peppermint and Cedarwood essential oils can be added, and a 5% body lotion can be used post-shower. To 100ml of Hazelnut oil (3.3 oz) add 5ml Black Spruce oil, 2ml Atlas Cedarwood oil, and 1ml Peppermint oil. We've also used this blend without the carrier with inhalation methods. Enjoy!
