Our curated guide to Energizing Essential Oils

Energise your mind. Fuel your body.

The best organic essential oils to increase your energy levels.

The world we live in can sometimes be exhausting. There’s so much to see, so many things to do and sometimes we may feel a bit tired. Energy levels might plummet for many reasons but, regardless, it is important to be kind to yourself and acknowledge your body and mind might need a little pick-me-up. 

While there are so many ways to start off the day, fueling the body with energy-boosting morning routines or ensuring you get consistent restful sleep, sometimes it still hits you and you need help getting your stamina back up. 

Thanks to their unique chemical profiles, essential oils help trigger positive emotional reactions and help our brain send constructive messages to our body. They can be applied topically, such as on pulse points to penetrate the bloodstream or under the feet to reach a specific pressure point or diffused to create an invigorating and positive environment. Re-energising, they allow the soul and the body perk up at once and help you power through the day.

The best organic essential oils to increase your energy levels. 

Sweet orange (Citrus sinensis) - Stretch your mind

Packed with all summer sunshine, sweet orange essential oil is a ray of light captured in a bottle. Zingy and sweet, the summery scent lifts the mood and triggers feelings of happiness, leaving the mind and the body feeling more energised.

Our Secret: Start the day by diffusing ten drops of sweet orange essential oil. Stretch out your muscles and rehydrate your body to gently wake up while the sunny scent untangles your sleepy mind. Breathe out, you’re ready for the day.  

Lemon (Citrus limonum) - Zesty energy

Commonly called liquid sunshine, lemon essential oil is perfect to quickly mentally perk up on the go. The bright citrusy scent sharpens the mind and gives it an immediate boost, cutting through any mental and physical fatigue.

Lime (Citrus aurantifolia) - A soft boost

Lighter than other members of try citrus family such as orange, lime essential oil is not without bringing its fair share of uplifting tanginess. Stimulating, it helps with circulation and will give you the right support when feeling a bit lethargic, especially if you’re working long hours.

Our secret: Diffuse ten drops of lime essential oil. Let the potent citrusy aroma cleanse the air and create a positive atmosphere around you.

Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) - Let go of unnecessary stress

Bergamot essential oil is also part of the citrus family. It presents a slightly more herbaceous and delicate smell than the other fruits. Delicate, it helps reduce stress and the level of cortisol present in the body and as a result, induces happiness and energy. Bergamot is one of our key essential oils in MĀ Vitality Master Blend.

Our MĀ Secret: Dab two drops of Bergamot essential oil diluted in a mixed carrier oil on your pulse points. Take a moment to breathe. Visualise your body letting go of any tensions and stress. Breathe out and feel this new strength from within.

Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) - Restart the system

Very different to lemon, lemongrass essential oil has a sweet and slightly exotic scent. The distinctive zingy aroma often found in Asian cuisine helps balance energy levels. Almost like a reboot of the system, it completely clears the mind and stimulates the body, getting you fully ready to restart. .

Our MĀ secret: Dilute two drops of lemongrass essential oil into a neutral carrier oil. Gently massage your temple. Breathe in the earthy scent and let the heaviness weighing on your body completely go. Open your eyes. Notice how light your mind and body feel.

Peppermint  (Mentha piperita) - Refreshing energy

Peppermint essential oil is the breath of fresh air your mind needs after a long meeting or simply a long day at work. Peppery and crisp, the minty scent is known for its invigorating and energising properties. Either used topically or inhaled, it eliminates brain fog and wakes up the mind instantly.

Our secret: Dilute two drops of peppermint essential oil and dab on the back of your neck. Feel this thrill in energy run down your spin and spread to your fingertips.

Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) - Revive your senses

Thyme essential oil is often used to improve circulation. Its chemical profile is high in carvacrol which helps boost the immune system as well as fighting fatigue. Freed from stress and tiredness, you can feel the energy flow effortlessly through the body.

Our MĀ Secret: Diffuse five drops of thyme essential oil and five of a citrusy essential oil. Breathe in and notice your mind sharpen, triggers by the fresh and tangy scent.

Organic thyme

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) - Revitalise your mind

Warm, spicy and sour, ginger essential oil, just like the root is truly nature’s wake up call. Stimulating, the deep aroma helps fight the mid-afternoon slumps, activates the nervous system and pumps up the body. Revitalised, you’re ready to keep going.

Our secret: Rub two drops of ginger essential oil diluted in a carrier oil on the bottom of your feet. Let the warming sensation rise through your body.

Cinnamon ( Cinnamomum zeylanicum) - Stabilize your energy

Cinnamon essential oil has been used for centuries to help regulate blood sugar level. Balanced, the body avoids going through peaks and troughs of energy levels. Additionally, the warm aroma brings comfort to mind while the spicy scent acts as a natural stimulant and energises the soul.

Our MĀ Secret: Dilute one drop of cinnamon essential oil in a carrier oil and rub on your wrists. Bring them to your nose and slowly breathe in the sweet and spicy aroma. Instantly the heat of the earthy scent warms up your mind and brings your energy levels back up.
