4 Motivational Essential Oils for Beating Procrastination in 2017

Featured on The Essential Life

For the month of January, we have been focusing on motivation & using Aromatherapy to help you reach the goals that you set for yourself for the New Year.  We've talked about Essential Oils for Motivation, & we've talked about Aromatherapy for Sticking to Your New Year's Resolution, but another thing that often holds us back from reaching our goals is the big bad 'P' word - Procrastination.

The idea that we have a lot of time & we will get to things later can be a real killer when it comes to reaching the goals that you have set for yourself in the new year.  Putting things off until the last minute sometimes means that things don't get done, or if they do, they're done poorly & their doing causes a great deal of stress.  This year, however, you can beat procrastination with aromatherapy & Essential Oils.

Aromatherapy for Procrastination

There are a number of Essential Oils that can be used to help overcome procrastination.  Try diffusing these oils in your home to give you a little bit of extra get-up-&-go in times when you feel beaten down, or like your goals have slipped out of reach.

Grapefruit Essential Oil

Grapefruit Essential Oil is a great oil for motivation.  Diffusing this fresh & uplifting scent will invigorate you while elevating your mood so that you are able to remain positive & focused on reaching your goals.  

Peppermint Essential Oil

When you are lacking the energy to keep yourself going, or maybe you just need a little bit more pep to get through your day, diffusing Peppermint Essential Oil in your home will help.  Peppermint is an energising scent that will give you the energy & motivation to stop procrastination before it becomes a problem.

Spruce Essential Oil

Spruce Essential Oil is a very grounding oil.  Diffusing Spruce in your home will keep you in the here-&-now so that you can focus on the things you need to do & avoid procrastinating so that you can reach all of the goals that you have set for yourself in 2016.
