Essential Oil Blends for Productivity

While working do you ever find yourself wandering about the web or constantly checking your phone? I know that when I am working at my 8-5 job or when I am working on my blog I find that I spend a lot more time than necessary on a task and that I am not focused and my productivity starts to lack. When I start to notice that I am not focused I like to reach for my favorite essential oil blends.

Essential oils are a natural way to help boost your productivity and these blends will help bring your energy up just enough to get your work done while also keeping you focused on the task at hand.The recipes below are diffuser blends but if you are unable to diffuse in your workplace, you can also use in an inhaler or roller blend. When using a roller blend, I like to mix my oils with either coconut oil or sweet almond oil. I would recommend rolling productivity blends behind your ears, on your chest, on your wrists, or on the back of your neck.

There are a lot of companies out there that sell quality essential oils. I did quite a bit of research on different essential oil companies and in the end I chose Plant Therapy. Plant Therapy is my go to for all things essential oil. They are a family owed company with great customer service, certified aromatherapist on staff to assist with questions and Dr. Robert Tisserand (a leading expert in essential oils and aromatherapy) consults with the company and helped to create their kid-safe line.

Another great thing that I love about Plant Therapy is that they value education and always want their customers to use their essentials oils safely. They have a Facebook group run by their aromatherapists and if you contact Plant Therapy directly you can get advice on use from the aromatherapists.

Plant Therapy also has one of the strictest standards in the industry. Before they sell an essential oil they ensure they are 100% pure, natural and the highest quality. Keep an eye out for my upcoming Why I choose Plant Therapy blog post.

The Best Essential Oils for Seasonal Allergies

Essential oils have been a life saver for me when dealing with seasonal allergies. I have allergies all year round, so in the past I have taken allergy medicine every day. Since trying to switch to a more natural way of life (just trying…and not always doing well) I have been trying different alternatives to the typical antihistamines. I have tried nettle leaf, which does seem to help a bit. Here is my Amazon Affiliate link to the Nettle Leaf I tried:

Some other great alternatives to traditional antihistamines are Fish Oil/Omega 3s, Probiotics, Vitmain A and Zinc.

During days where the allergen count is high I still need to take antihistamine but I enjoy using the oils below to help support my system. When the allergen count in low I can usually get away with just using my essential oil blends.

Allergy Trio Diffuser Blend:
  • 3 Drops Lavender
  • 3 Drops Lemon
  • 3 Drops Peppermint

To diffuse the allergy blend, place 3 drops of each oil into your diffuser and diffuser as needed for allergy relief.

Allergy Trio Roller:
  • 10 ML roller bottle
  • 10 drops lavender
  • 10 drops lemon
  • 10 drops peppermint
  • Top off with carrier oil of your choice

Once you have mixed up your roller bottle, you can place the oil mix behind your ears, on your forehead, or on your chest to help with allergies. Please note that lemon oil is phototoxic, which means that using this oil and going out into the sun could cause you to sunburn much more easily. Please use caution when using lemon essential oil. Another option would be to use steam distilled lemon essential oil. Due to how it is distilled, the lemon essential oil is no longer phototoxic.

Why these essential oils for allergies?:

Lavender: Lavender essential oil is a powerful anti-inflammatory and natural antihistamine.

Lemon: Lemon essential oils supports your lymphatic system draining and can help overcome respiratory conditions.

Peppermint: Peppermint essential oil can help to unclog a stuffy nose and help with scratchy throat. It also has the power to discharge phlegm and reduce inflammation.

Essential Oils to Add an extra punch:
  • Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • Copaiba Essential Oil
  • Frankincense Essential Oil

My favorite pre-made blend for allergies is a by the wonderful Plant Therapy. This blend is called Sneezy Stop. This is a kid-safe blend that works great for both adults and kids and smells wonderful. I love diffusing this blend during allergy season in my diffuser when I work.
