New Year, New You: Unlock Your Potential with Essential Oils

Happy New Year! Whether you’re the type of person who usually sets resolutions or not, this is the perfect time to reflect on 2015 and begin planning for 2016. Maybe you have some career goals that you’d like to accomplish or perhaps your health isn’t where you’d like it to be. No matter what you want to focus on in the new year, there are simple, holistic ways to give yourself a boost. Here are some ideas for how to use Miracle Essential Oils to unlock your potential in the new year.

Aromatically

Scent is our sense most powerfully tied to memory—just a whiff of something familiar can send you right back to a specific moment in your past, triggering a variety of feelings and thoughts. Essential oils can be used to produce the same effect, stimulating emotions that can bring the user a sense of well-being, balance and peace.

You can get the benefits of aromatherapy either by inhaling essential oils directly from their bottles or by using the Miracle Ultrasonic Diffuser to infuse your whole home with lush scents. The best part about using aromatherapy to boost your mood? It starts almost immediately!

We live in a busy, go-go world, so one of your goals for the new year might be to relax more. Miracle Essential Oils like DeStress, Exhale and Sleep are the best oils to go with you on that journey. Here’s how to use them:

  • Keep a bottle of DeStress, which combines a bright, citrusy scent with calming geranium, in your desk drawer so you can access it whenever you feel the need.
  • Try using Exhale in your diffuser to create a calm, peaceful home environment where you can truly unwind and rest.
  • Sprinkle a few drops of Sleep on your pillow to inhale the soothing scent all night long as you slip into a deep, restorative sleep.

Topically

In addition to breathing in the wonderful scents of essential oils, you can apply them directly to your skin with carrier oils to get the benefits. All of the oils used in Miracle’s products are natural, so your body should recognize them as such upon application.

However, it’s recommended to apply them using a carrier oil at first. Essential oils are commonly applied to the bottom of the feet (they contain some of your body’s largest pores and biggest reflex points), wrists, the back of the neck and behind the ears. Try a few different places to see which suits you best.

If one of your goals for the new year is career-focused, try dabbing a few drops of essential oils on before work to help with a variety of situations:

  • Energy combines refreshing lemongrass and peppermint for all day boost.
  • Focus uses aloe vera, jasmine and chamomile, so if you find yourself in an anxiety-inducing situation or you need a little guide back to focus, this is the essential oil for you.
  • Motivation’s citrus and mint help to cultivate positivity.

Internally

Most Miracle Essential Oils can also be used internally when taken as dietary supplements. (Be sure to check the label before using any oils internally.) They can move quickly through the bloodstream to provide quick results, but should be taken with caution when first adding them to your diet. Education and experimentation will help you figure out what works best for your individual needs.

Many people want to be healthier, but are unsure of how to go about it. One of the easiest ways is to add essential oils to your diet via smoothies you drink for breakfast or a snack. Here are some suggestions for which oils to use:

  • Digest combines ginger, peppermint and other natural digestive aids.
  • Immunity’s eucalyptus and rosemary can help you maintain overall wellness.
  • Slender uses cinnamon, grapefruit and peppermint and is best used by those who seek a digestive aid that will potentially help curb appetite.

No matter what your goals are for 2016, there’s an essential oil and a way to use it that can help you unlock your potential in the new year!
