For a Night Out…

Prep for a night out on Valentine's with pure Beachwood Essential Oils

Have a date night or girl’s night on the calendar? Diffuse some energy-boosting essential oils while you’re getting ready to ensure you stay energetic throughout the evening! 

Here are some of our favorite essential oils that will put a little extra pep in your step:

  • Rosemary

Commonly used for mental strain and fatigue, rosemary is a fantastic essential oil to diffuse if you need a pick me up.[1] This distinct earthy oil has notes of evergreen, mint, and pine to stimulate your senses and help you feel more alert and attentive. 

If you want something less potent but still earthy, cedarwood is a great alternative to rosemary. With woodsy notes, cedarwood has a warm, smoky, sweet scent that will help provide some mental clarity. The cedrol in this oil may help reduce stress and nerves, so if you’re feeling the jitters for your date, diffuse a few drops of cedarwood![2]  

Taking a step away from earthy notes, lemon is another amazing choice to help relieve stress and brighten your mood![3] The citrus notes of this essential oil will help lift your spirits and keep you energized for whatever Valentine’s Day plans you have for the night. You can diffuse or apply lemon essential oil topically on your skin with a carrier oil to stay refreshed all night long.

We couldn’t make a list of our favorite energizing essential oils without peppermint! Known for its vitalizing properties, peppermint oil is a classic go-to for enhancing mental focus and reducing tension.[4] The fresh scent is sure to help invigorate your senses, mood, and energy levels. 

For a Night In…

A night in for Valentine's Day

If you plan on having a quiet evening on Valentine’s Day, there are plenty of options for you to have a night of tranquility and relaxation. Below are just a few essential oils that will soothe your mood and help you feel extra cozy. 

  • Lavender

With floral sweet notes, lavender is a staple for creating a relaxing, peaceful environment. Known for its calming properties, lavender aids with restlessness, insomnia, and can help reduce stress.[5] Self-care is an integral part of your wellness, so take the time to diffuse some lavender oil and cozy up with a cup of tea!

Another great choice for a calming oil is bergamot.[6] Its scent is fresh, sweet, and citrusy with a slightly spicy undernote, perfect for if you want an alternative to lavender. It’s a popular top note in perfumes, so you may recognize this scent. You can mix bergamot with a carrier oil to apply topically or diffuse it in any room for a fresh fragrance.

  • Patchouli

For an earthier scent, patchouli is another option for a mood-balancing oil. Patchouli has a strong, dark, spicy fragrance, so a little goes a long way. Diffusing patchouli oil can help promote more restful sleep and relieve stress, so it is ideal to diffuse while you’re relaxing at home.

Fit for Any Mood

Whether you plan on going out or staying in this Valentine’s Day, there is an essential oil that will perfectly complement your day. Most importantly, take this time to treat and pamper yourself, you deserve it!
