Essential Oil Treatments for Fatigue

Fatigue is a state of intense physical tiredness and exhaustion, brought about by extreme exertion (mental or physical) and/or illness. Some suffer from chronic fatigue, and experience these feelings on a daily basis. Basil and peppermint oils are both excellent at relieving mental fatigue, and rosemary and geranium oils are very effective stimulants, though for this reason they can inhibit sleep so should not be used in the evenings.

For chronic fatigue, 250mg of Indian ginseng daily can help to balance levels of cortisol within the body and thus naturally increase energy. Traditionally, lemon and lime, peppermint, and basil oils have been used to boost energy and increase vitality.

Application Usages

Massage Oils Application

Select 20-30 drops of your preferred essential oils for fatigue and mix with 2 ounces of a carrier oil (grapeseed oil is a good option). You can apply the mixture throughout the body or simply apply on the neck and bottom of the feet before going to bed.

Bath Application
Take 15-20 drops of your preferred essential oils for fatigue and mix with 2 ounces of carrier oil of your choosing. Apply the mixture into the water only after the water has stopped flowing. Add the mixture while the water is running to evaporate the mixture and reduce the potency.

Diffusion Application
Select 8-10 drops of your preferred essential oils for fatigue and pour into diffuser. Take deep breaths and inhale the essential oil aroma.

Cloth Application
Apply 2-4 drops of preferred essential oil for fatigue onto cloth/tissue. Hold cloth or tissue in the palms of your hand and take 2-3 deep breaths through the nose. If inhaling through a cotton ball, gently waft the cotton ball under the nose and take 2-3 deep inhalations. This method of application can be used 2-3 times or can vary depending on when needed.
