A good morning has the power to shape your entire day. When we start off on the right foot, we feel fueled for success and ready to face whatever our schedule has in store. That’s why we’re confident that having a great day begins with nailing your morning routine!
A morning routine doesn’t have to be elaborate to be effective—it simply needs to set the stage so you can face the day with confidence. Essential oils are excellent tools to help you match your morning atmosphere to the tone you want for the day ahead. To show you just how easy it can be, we’ve put together a few tips to show you how you can use essential oils in the morning. In order to create the most uplifting morning routine we could, we’re focusing on two of our most supportive essential oil aromas: Ylang Ylang essential oil and Adaptiv™ essential oil blend.
You know how your bed never feels more comfortable than when that morning alarm starts going off? Mastering your mornings and getting out of the bed takes some strength, but to make it a little easier we suggest creating an out-of-bed environment that’s just as comfortable and inviting as your sheets.
Each night before bed, prepare your diffuser for the next morning. Make sure your favorite diffuser is filled to the right water level and add three to five drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil. When it’s time to rise and shine, simply tap your diffuser’s “on” button and let the sweet, positive aroma of Ylang Ylang oil fill your space as you get ready.
As you go about your morning, have a ritual of making your bed. Smoothing your comforter and arranging your pillows is a simple way to give your space a more peaceful and orderly appearance while making it just a tad more difficult to slip back under the covers!
Bonus Shower Tip: If you take your showers in the morning, then don’t miss out on one of the most opportune aromatic experiences of your entire day. Once you have the hot water running, add two drops of Ylang Ylang oil to the shower floor to infuse the steam with the uplifting aroma. Better yet, add a drop of Ylang Ylang oil to your shampoo or conditioner to enjoy the oil’s relaxing scent along with boosted benefits to your hair and scalp.

Once you have your diffuser running, designate a small portion of your morning for stillness and self-reflection. This practice will help you start each day with focus and clear intention so you can bring your A-game into every task ahead.
Sit on the edge of your nicely made bed and place a drop of Adaptiv essential oil blend on your wrists, neck, and temples. Alternatively, place a drop in the palms of your hands and cup over your nose. Close your eyes and inhale the bright, comforting aroma of Adaptiv oil while repeating affirmations of confidence and self-empowerment.
Whether you repeat your affirmations aloud or in silence, the centering aroma of Adaptiv essential oil blend will remind you to make a habit of anchoring your intentions and framing your mind right so you can walk out the door ready to seize the day!
