Oils for Letting Go of the Past

0 31/08/2021 - Mindfulness, WELLNESS

As we look towards the future, it can be difficult to let go of the past and picture the next steps on our journeys. With this blog, we’ll be taking you through some of our favourite oils that encourage positivity, motivation, and joy, to help us to stop dwelling on the past – and instead look forward to brighter days ahead!

Peppermint Oil for a Positive Outlook

One brilliant way to focus on the future and let go of negativity is by introducing a fitness routine to your daily life. Whether it’s hitting the gym, stopping by the yoga studio, playing a favourite sport, or chasing after your little ones, physical activity helps your body and mind feel great. One of our favourite essential oils to use during exercise is Peppermint, as its tingling, cooling effect complements tough workouts perfectly, particularly when it’s massaged into neck, shoulder, and leg muscles. For an extra hit of minty freshness, why not try adding a few drops of Peppermint+ to your water bottle at the gym, allowing your tastebuds to be tantalised while you work up a sweat!
