How to Use Essential Oil for Motivation

Diffuse Oils

One easy way to enjoy the motivational essential oils is with an essential oil diffuser. Try diffusing any of the single oils in the list above. See what works for you and what aroma gives you inspiration. I also include some diffuser blends below to try and we have many more diffuser recipes.

Apply Oils to Skin

Use essential oils topically on wrists, neck, shoulders, or upper chest. This way you will be able to inhale them as you are going about your day. Be sure to use properly diluted essential oils using a carrier oil. Recommended level is a 2% dilution for a healthy adult. That equals about 12 drops of essential oils per one ounce of carrier oil.

If using a 10 ml roller bottle, for a 2% dilution you only need 4 drops of essential oil. For a 5% dilution, you only need 10 drops of essential oil. Add EOs and top the bottle off with a carrier oil like jojoba oil. Roller bottles are convenient and easy to make. Check out our motivated roll on recipe below.

Wear an Essential Oil Necklace

While many people love using essential oils, not everyone does. With an essential oil diffuser necklace, I can keep the aroma in my personal space. This is only one reason I love essential oil jewelry.
