Setting goals for 2021? Isn’t everyone? This year, if you want to make your 2021 dreams come true, then you need essential oils.Essential oils can act as your natural support system for every goal you have. If you’re so over 2020 and are ready to put this stink of a year behind you, then here are the top five ways to use essential oils for the new year to make your dreams come true. 

5 Ways Essential Oils Can Help You Achieve Your 2021 Goals 

Emotional Support 

Whether you’re looking for a confidence boost or an overall mood boost to help you put your 2021 goals into action, essential oils can help. 

2020 has been hard. It’s been an emotional roller coaster and although it may not come to a complete end as the clock strikes 12, oils can help you handle the ride a little better. 

Essential Oils Buying Guide

If you feel like your motivation and productivity is at an all time low—that’s ok. You are enough and you’ve done enough just by getting through the year—but trust me when I say that life looks a lot brighter when you feel grounded and in control of your emotions and mood. 

Some essential oils have the incredible ability to balance emotions and naturally heighten feelings of confidence, strength, and happiness. Maybe this year you want to get off your prescription medications once and for all (and if you don’t, that’s ok too!) or maybe you just want to feel more balanced. Here are the best essential oils for emotional support this new year: 

Confidence: 
  • Grapefruit 
  • Jasmine 
  • Sandalwood 
Anxious feelings: 
  • Lavender 
  • Lemon 
  • Melissa 
Sadness: 
  • Frankincense 
  • Wild orange 
  • Lavender 
Anger:
  • Bergamot 
  • Cedarwood 
  • Frankincense 
Overwhelmed/Burdened: 
  • Basil 
  • Lemon 
  • Rosemary 

To use essential oils for mood and behavior you can diffuse five drops, or dilute and apply topically under the nose, chest, or back of the neck. 

Physical Benefits 

No more dieting! 2021 is the year we stop fad diets and bad self talk. Seriously, it’s ok to eat yummy food with family during the holidays! 

Instead, let’s make it a goal to exercise because it feels good to move our bodies and because it feels good to care for our vessels. Let’s make it a goal to eat healthy, whole foods because it feels good to nourish ourselves; it feels good to wake up with a clear mind and light body. 

And this is where essential oils come in. When you’re drained and fatigued the last thing you want to do is get a quick 20 minute pilates sesh in and the first thing you want to do is stuff your face with bread and cookies and just sit on the couch until it’s dark. 

Essential oils are a natural way to boost energy and kick fatigue to the curb. Aromatic use of essential oils can help rejuvenate and invigorate your mind and body so that you can put yourself first. 

Peppermint and wild orange essential oil are a killer combo to diffuse whenever you need a pick me up. Two to three drops of each (or a simple inhale directly from the bottle) will do the trick. 

You can also try diffusing rosemary, basil, and frankincense to help with chronic adrenal fatigue and focus. 

Spiritual Focus 

Maybe one of your goals for this year is to be more attuned with your authentic self and soul purpose. Maybe you’d like to try and meditate to help calm the mind and ground. Essential oils can help get you there. While some oils are perfect for calming the mind of anxiety and worries, others can work to clear the space of bad energy so that you can connect with your ultimate zen. 

For Creating the Zen Zone: Diffuse five drops Patchouli or Lemon

For Calming the Mind and Body so You Can Get in the Zone:  Lavender/Frankincense —Diffuse Five Drops or Dilute eight drops with one cup Epsom Salt in bath 

Mental Clarity 

Some goals are going to require mental effort—say you want to learn a new language or finally learn to play the guitar. These goals need some help from essential oils that are known for their cognitive benefits. 

Essential Oils Buying Guide

Essential oils that are going to promote focus and enhance creativity are going to be key in succeeding this year. 

Rosemary essential oil can help the brain retain information and increase productivity, while basil can help combat brain fog and adrenal fatigue.  Other oils like geranium and rose will foster creativity and get you in the flow. If you need a little energy boost, look no further than our trusty combo peppermint and wild orange. 

To use essential oils for mental clarity, diffuse five drops or inhale directly from the bottle. 

Boost Immunity 

Preventing sickness is a must going into the new year. The last thing we need is to get sick—that’s the opposite of “getting started on the right foot”. To feel your best and keep motivation high, use essential oils to boost immunity. 

Citrus oils have incredible antibacterial, antiviral, and immunostimulant properties that can keep your body strong. Try diffusing citrus oils like lemon and wild orange to help kill airborne viruses and germs. 

Other essential oils for immunity include oregano, tea tree, frankincense, and doTERRA onguard. 

There are plenty of ways to use essential oils for an immune boost: mixing a drop with honey and adding it to tea, diluting with EVOO and taking in a veggie capsule, diffusing a couple drops, inhaling directly from the bottle, or mixing with a carrier oil and applying to the bottoms of your feet. 

The options are endless for immune-boosting essential oils. Keeping immunity strong and your body feeling good is a crucial part of starting your new year on the right foot. To check out easy DIY recipes head over to our article on the best essential oils for immune system support
