The midday slump happens to the best of us. Love or hate your job, when 3 p.m. rolls around, your body is pulling out all the stops to convince your brain it’s nap time.
Unless your boss is Arianna Huffington, you probably can’t get away with a quick snooze session at work. The solution? It isn’t caffeine or a cold shower, it’s turning on your diffuser and breathing in some essential oils. (Plus, a diffuser is less conspicuous than an Ostrich pillow.)
Amy Galper of the New York Institute of Aromatherapy says that if you’re looking for an essential oil energy kick, there are three ways to get one: through warming oils, cooling oils, and evergreen oils.
All the options sound wonderful, TBH. Who wouldn’t want to be surrounded with scents like cardamom and eucalyptus? That midday slump doesn’t stand a chance.
