It’s that time of year again! Spring Forward is upon us, and that means setting our clocks forward a full hour and to enjoy a little extra daylight. But while many people naturally thrive in the early morning hours, some of us need a little extra time to wake up fully and get ready for the day. Thankfully, with the power of aromatherapy, there are a great many options available to give you energy, boost your mood, and enliven your mind. Whether you are an early bird or a night owl, these essential oils are sure to help make this Spring Forward a smooth transition.

Missing out on a full night’s rest can have negative effects on your skin. Treat your skin to a little extra care this Spring Forward by adding Lavender essential oil to your skincare routine. With naturally soothing properties, Lavender is the perfect way to brighten your skin and provide a glowing complexion that just screams, “Well-rested!”

Other Ways to Prepare

  1. Diffuse a few drops of Roman Chamomile a half-hour before you are supposed to sleep (even if it feels early!) to prepare the mind for rest and relaxation.
  2. Try this DIY Morning Wake-Up Shower Rinse to help wake up the mind and get the blood flowing!
  3. Combine our signature True Blue blend with a carrier oil, and massage into your shoulders, neck, and feet for a quick energy boost that will leave you refreshed and ready to slay the day.
