Summer is drawing to a close ... The holidays are over and it's back to school and to work! But all those sunny days might have dampened our focus. And those little everyday ailments don't help either – what's to love about a headache when coming back from a long time off? As usual, Lotus Aroma has the zen solution: 5 essential oils you should keep in your desk drawer.
- Defeat Stress With Roman Chamomile

- Peppermint – "Migraine...? What migraine?"
With its potent analgesic action, Peppermint essential oil is your natural weapon to slain the migraine dragon ... It works quickly, too: just apply 2 to 4 drops on your temples and gently massage in with your fingertips. Repeat every 30 minutes until the pain subsides.
- Feeling Tired...? Think "Black Spruce"
The summer holidays are not necessarily as rejuvenating and relaxing as one would like and we sometimes come out of it quite tired. When that happens, reach for Black Spruce essential oil. Its mellow and woody fragrance also helps keep you alert through that mid-afternoon energy slump. Use this invigorating oil with a diffuser (ideal for chronic fatigue) or breathe in the vapours of a few drops on a clean handkerchief.
