I bet you think I’m going to talk about my early-rising three-year-old.
Maybe coffee was the first thought to cross your mind.
Both of those answers are a major part of my waking-up time in the morning. I can never quite predict my little guy’s wake-up time, which definitely makes the morning interesting. And coffee is always, always a part of my morning bible time. Nothing can replace that smell, that taste…
I’ve found something, however, that gives me a wake-up call like nothing else. The best part – it’s natural and healthy! It involves this dynamic duo…
Peppermint + Wild Orange essential oils work in amazing ways on their own. I’m a big fan of both scents individually, but when I combine them, it’s like magic.
So how do I use this duo? It’s REALLY simple.
Are you ready for this?
I put a drop of each – just one drop – in my hands. I rub my hands together and then rub them on the back of my neck. The feeling is so cool and invigorating and would probably be enough on it’s own. After rubbing it on my neck, I also cup my hands over my mouth and nose (not touching my eyes – ouch!) and inhale the smell several times.
That’s it. I’m a new woman after this peppermint+ wild orange process, whether it be in the morning (which I do every day) or in the mid-afternoon when I hit a wall.
I wasn’t kidding about the simplicity. I almost feel silly writing a whole blog post about this, but there was no way I wasn’t going to share with you!
What gets you going in the morning or when you need an afternoon pick-me-up?
