Fatigue is common after a viral infection, but can also occur from extended concentration or without any known cause. Rather than resorting to stimulants, why not consider essential oils for a pick-me-up? A small clinical trial suggests that inhaling a combination of peppermint, basil, and helichrysum can reduce mental exhaustion and moderate burnout.


Add 4 drops of peppermint, 2 drops of basil, and 1 drop of helichrysum to your diffuser to promote alertness and reduce fatigue.
