January is a clean slate. It is the first chapter of a bright and shiny new year…and it is the ideal time to refocus. Whether that means shifting your attention towards a specific resolution or simply doing what you can to start fresh, essential oils can be beneficial. Different essential oil blends can make it easier to achieve your goals and refresh your space. Ready to start blending? To make sure the new year is as positive and productive as possible? Give these essential oil blends a try. There is no easier way to start the year off right.

Try These Essential Oil Blends to Welcome in the New Year

Sometimes, a fresh start is exactly what you need. Maybe you have been feeling a little bogged down mentally and emotionally lately. It makes sense! The month of December is usually overloaded with activities, to-do lists, and seasonal traditions. All of that busyness can be wonderful, but it can also feel overwhelming at times. That is what makes the start of a new year so important. It gives you the opportunity to start over in a sense. January is the ideal time to start fresh and clear away what no longer serves you. This can be done in many different ways, but essential oils are an easy and effective option.

Ready to wave goodbye to old and welcome in the new? Then make sure you create an essential oil blend that includes peppermint, juniper, lemongrass or rosemary. Those oils are known to uplift and energize. Peppermint in particular is known to boost energy levels and alleviate stress. So, if you are feeling a little overwhelmed about the prospect of a new year…blend together peppermint essential oil and lavender essential oil. Lavender is known for its calming properties and it also smells amazing. The two blended together will quickly make your home feel happier and more inviting. Add two drops of each to a diffuser for the best results.

Focus on Fitness Goals with These Essential Oil Blends

If there are fitness goals on your to-do list for the year, be sure to choose your essential oils wisely and incorporate them into your post-workout routine. Certain oils can be used to reduce the pain of sore muscles following a particularly strenuous workout. For instance, eucalyptus oil has a cooling effect on muscles. Additionally, it reduces pain and inflammation. The same can be said for chamomile essential oil and peppermint essential oil. To create a massage oil:

  • Start with a carrier oil, like coconut oil or grapeseed oil. Add 8 drops of Peppermint, 8 drops of Eucalyptus, 4 drops of Clove, and 4 drops of Ginger to the carrier oil. Mix thoroughly. Then massage the blend onto sore muscles as needed.

Another option is to enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub following a workout. You can make this as elaborate as simple as you like! For instance, you can light a candle, put on some music, and really make this a time for pampering. Or you can simply hop into the tub and let those sore muscles soak. It all comes down to personal preference. Treat your body with this blend:

  • Sprinkle a cup of Epsom salts into the water and make sure they dissolve completely. Then add in 8 drops of Peppermint, 8 drops of Eucalyptus, and 3 drops of Lemongrass.

Do What You Can to Enjoy the New Year

Make the new year one to remember! Whether you choose to diffuse essential oils, create a room spray, an inhaler, or something else entirely…the ultimate goal is to welcome in the good. Essential oil blends make it possible to refocus, get grounded, and move forward with ease.
