Let's kick those winter blues away!
Posted on January 20 2020
Blue Monday! Yes, the saddest most depressing day of the year. :-(
As I look out my window in Ontario, the snow is covering the ground and the temperature is a frigid -15 degrees, and all I want to do is hibernate like the bears until the spring.
Hibernating is unrealistic, unfortunately, so let’s see if we can help kick those winter blues away and boost your mood.
So why are the researchers calling this the saddest day of the year? Well, to start with, we aren’t getting our Vitamin D, because it’s cold to go outside. We are feeling a little broke because of the money we spent over the holidays added with the excitement of the holidays is now long gone. We have probably broken our New Years' resolutions, well because do those things ever work? So our energy, positivity, and motivation seem to be gone.
Aromatherapy is used for so many different things, but one of our favourite ways is that they boost our moods. Essential oils directly affect our Limbic System which controls our moods, emotions, heart rate, memory, stress levels, blood pressure, breathing and more.
Citrus oils such as lemon, grapefruit, lime, orange, bergamot, and lime are uplifting and energizing. Aromatherapists refer to these oils as happy oils and are often found in blends to improve moods. At Bloomiss, we have combined two special blends of these stimulating oils and a couple of others to help you combat the days when you need an extra boost of sunshine in a bottle.
Check out our two products to help you combat Blue Monday and all the days that feel like a down and out.
Energize – A roll-on for your pulse points of an invigorating blend of lemon, lime, bergamot, pink grapefruit, rosemary, and cassia.
Balance Mist – A spray that was created to make you feel refreshed on those days you are feeling drained. It’s a stimulating combination of orange, lemon, lime, pink grapefruit oils blended with rose & geranium water, aloe vera juice and watermelon extract to bring back balance to your day.
We hope these essential oil products will help combat Blue Monday blues. If you want to try these products, you are able to purchase them here. Aromatherapy
