Let’s look at why each pure essential oil has been selected and expertly blended to help reignite motivation, helping you achieve your goals. Let’s take a peek at what’s inside: The Little Box of Motivation.
Our Little Motivation Ritual
1. To encourage a positive mindset, whatever the task ahead
Happy Vibes – Be cheerful, smile bright and feel great
What’s in the blend?
Lemon Tea Tree – Leptospermum petersonii
Distilled from the leaves of the Lemon Tea Tree, unlike regular Tea Tree, it has a beautiful lemon aroma whilst retaining its excellent anti-microbial properties. Its sunny and bright aroma instantly transports your mind to a happy place, helping to alleviate tensions and stress.
Bergamot – Citrus aurantium bergamia
Distilled from the rind of this inedible citrus fruit, Bergamot has many therapeutic uses, mostly centred around wellbeing and mood enhancement. Clinical trials have shown it to alter mood by reducing cortisol levels (our stress hormone). Like all citrus oils, Bergamot can bring an instant lift to your mood just through its fragrance. This is because citrus oils are strongly associated with sunshine, being outdoors and even being on holiday!
Nutmeg – Myristica fragrans
Steam distilled from the freshly ground and dried nutmeg seed, the oil originates from the tall tropical evergreen tree of the same name. Many people find the aroma of Nutmeg comforting as it has a warm spicy aroma that is rich, soothing and comforting, reminding you of Christmas and childhood. Rather than being considered sedative or stimulating, it is a truly balancing essential oil. Helping you find euphoria when overwhelmed with a busy mind.
2. To sharpen the mind and reduce procrastination
Find Focus – Feel sharp, stay positive and achieve.
What’s in the blend?
Rosemary – Rosmarinus officinalis
Steam distilled from the leaves and young shoots of the herb, Rosemary leads the aroma of this blend. Its robust scent is uplifting and energising, broadly known and used to improve memory and focus. A familiar sight in many gardens across the globe, Rosemary is originally from the Mediterranean and is used extensively in Western Herbal medicine as a tonic for many conditions.
Grapefruit – Citrus paradisi
Grapefruit appears to be a happy accident of cross-pollination between the Sweet Orange and the Pomelo in the Caribbean during the 18th Century. It is said to have been given its name because someone thought the fruit tasted like grapes at the time! It has a bright, uplifting aroma that will help when you feel overwhelmed, allowing you to feel calm and content and push through distractions to achieve your goals.
Orange leaf – Citrus aurantium amara
The drier, more mellow citrus aroma of Orange Leaf, also known as Petitgrain, is from the leaves of the orange tree. It still has that ‘classic’ aromatic association with citrus oils. However, it comes from the leaves of a citrus tree and is extracted from the plant by steam distillation rather than expression. Orange Leaf is indicated as a tonic, helpful for restlessness and feelings of stress from overwhelmed emotions. This means our Find Focus blend is the perfect desk essential to keep calm and carry on!
3. To revitalise mind and body, helping you stay on track
NEW Energy Boost – Wake up, revitalise and revive your mindset.
What’s in the blend?
Orange – Citrus aurantium dulcis
Expressed from the rind of the well-known fruit, Orange has a wonderfully bright, uplifting and energising citrus aroma. Synonymous with sunshine and vitality, its fragrance will lift your mood and inspire joyful energy! What more do you need to give you a boost?
Lime – Citrus aurantifolia
Expressed from the fruit’s rind, bringing in a second citrus hit to the blend, refreshing Lime is revitalising for the mood, helping you stay fresh with sparkling enthusiasm. Originally from India, Lime now grows in many parts of the world, especially the West Indies. Sweet, fresh and more mellow than lemon essential oil, Lime is indicated for lethargy and low spirits, able to support us when we feel fatigued.
Grapefruit– Citrus paradisi
Like its citrus siblings, Grapefruit is also expressed from the fruit’s rind, native to Barbados. With its tangy, delightful aroma, this essential oil has a wonderfully uplifting aroma that will fill you with energy and zest. Indicated as a euphoric oil to relieve feelings of apathy and emotional fatigue, it will certainly give you a spring in your step.
