Wishing everyone a pleasant and safe Labor Day Holiday Weekend. Each year, Americans and Canadians celebrate Labor/Labour Day on the first Monday of September. Labor Day is a day intended to honor workers and offer a day of relaxation.
Though I'm glad that Monday is Labor Day, this extended weekend will partially be a "working" weekend for me. Read below to learn how I use Rosemary Essential Oils to stay alert, focused and energized as I work.
With Labor Day typically falling right around the start of school, I don't remember ever being taught about the history or depth of meaning of the holiday. Do you? Visit one or all of the following sites for answers to your questions regarding the origins of Labor Day:
- History.com's tribute to Labor Day
- History of Labor Day from the United States Department of Labor
- Wikipedia Entry for Labor Day
Rosemary Essential Oil for Concentration while Working or Studying:
Labor Day marks a time when students and teachers say goodbye to summer and rev up for school. Fall also earmarks a busier workload for quite a few professions.
Look to Rosemary Essential Oil as the oil of choice when you need help in focusing, concentrating and recalling what you learn for extended periods. Rosemary is contraindicated in pregnancy, high blood pressure and epilepsy, so do be sure to avoid using it if you or anyone in your household/workplace will be negatively effected.
I love diffusing it in my Aroma Diffuser from Diffuser World or in a candle diffuser. (View AromaWeb's All About Diffusers article for information on different diffuser methods). Rosemary Essential Oil, Peppermint Essential Oil and Spearmint Essential Oil are all energizing oils. Combine Rosemary and one or both of the mints in a diffuser as a powerful combination for staying alert and focused. If studying and working has you stressing, try combining Rosemary with calming Lavender Essential Oil. Experiment with uplifting and energizing Orange Essential Oil as well. Cypress Essential Oil is also an exceptional oil for helping to stay clear-thinking and focused. Be sure to follow all safety precautions for each essential oil that you use.
Enjoy your Labor Day Weekend and the transition to Fall!
