Essential Oils to Make Your New Year’s Resolutions a Reality
Let’s get real– 2020 sucked. That’s making 2021 riper than ever for New Year’s Resolutions. While essential oils won’t magically melt off the holiday/quarantine weight, they can help motivate you, keep you healthy, and influence your mood.
The top resolutions for 2021, in fact, are related to getting fit and weight loss. The other most common resolutions include increased motivation to save money or climb the career ladder, spending time with family, and getting healthier.
We’ve broken down key essential oils to make the most popular New Year’s resolutions a reality.
Essential Oils for Fitness Resolutions
Essential oils to help you power through your newest fitness routine can be comprehensive based on your exact issues/needs.
Breathing is one of the most important parts of any exercise routine. You can help promote improved breathing by applying a few drops of peppermint or eucalyptus essential oils to your neck and chest before exercising. We’ve also put together our Breathe Essential Oils Blend to help open your airways by combining the more powerful respiratory oils into one. (Pro Tip: The breathe blend is also the perfect solution for a cold – letting you get even more out of your bottle.)
Combat Muscle Soreness
As your muscles get used to your new routine you are likely to experience some muscle aches. To help calm your mind and body using lavender or rosemary essential oils can help relieve soreness. We’ve also developed the Deep Muscle Relief Essential Oils Blend which can be massaged into tender muscles to help relieve pain.
Essential Oils for Weight Loss Resolutions
Weight loss is a goal often made alongside exercise. While diet and exercise will be essential to meeting your weight loss goals, essential oils can help you on your journey.
Increase Water Intake
To help prepare your body for increased movement and curb your appetite increasing your water intake is essential. If you’re struggling to make your body enjoy drinking water, consider adding citrus flavored oils to your water (the exact amount should vary based on amount of water and desired taste).
Getting enough sleep is also essential to being motivated throughout the day. While a balanced diet and regular exercise can help with this, a few drops of our Good Sleep Essential Oils before hitting the hay can help ensure you are well rested when you wake. If you’d rather avoid applying essential oils directly, we’ve put together our sleep bundle that comes with a diffuser and our favorite sleep-inducing oils: patchouli, roman chamomile, and lavender.
Essential Oils for the Family
For all those looking to reconnect with family and enjoy being together, there are some key essential oils you should always have diffusing in the background of game night. Roll on oils may also be the perfect solution if you are spending time with the family out of the house.
When trying to sell a house, realtor soften bake a fresh batch of cookies to create an inviting reminder of home. Our Adoration Essential Oils Blend has a similar effect, evoking warm and welcoming energies among the family.
Our Joy Essential Oils Blend is also a great solution to put a little pep in everyone’s step. This blend is made up of many of your favorite oils and also includes geranium and cananga to help release negative thoughts and encourage endorphin release.
If you’re looking for a calm, relaxing movie night, consider diffusing oils that promote peacefulness and reduce stress.
While you likely already use lavender and ylang ylang to promote calmness, there are some lesser-known essential oils that can help as well. Roman chamomile has been shown to reduce anger or irritability, clary sage can also help promote calmness, and petitgrain can ease the nervous system.

A NOTE ON QUALITY
When you are shopping for essential oils you might see labels like “Pure,” “All-Natural,” or “Therapeutic Grade.” What you may not know is that these claims are not always completely true. Today, essential oil companies can get away with adding all kinds of fillers, artificial additives and even water to their products in order to shave costs off of their bottom line. That means that when you think you’re getting a potent, pure and medicinal quality oil - what you are really getting isn’t even essential oils at all!
At Healing Solutions we truly value the health and happiness of our loyal customers as well as new shoppers. That’s why every single batch of essential oils we make istested, verified and certified100% pure and unadulterated, so that you get the results you expect when using them for health purposes.
