5 Energy-Boosting Plants and Herbs
Have you been feeling a little low on energy? Has winter seemingly sucked all your energy away? Maybe it’s not the weather, perhaps you are so busy between work and your home life. Feeling low on energy means even the simplest of tasks can feel like an uphill battle. So why continue the cycle? Here’s a look at five energy-boosting plants and herbs that can make a difference and may be able to provide you with some relief.
This particular herb may not come as a surprise as ginseng has long since been used to boost energy. This is an herbal supplement, and it can be found in various forms including capsules, powders, liquids, and even tea. Not only can it boost your energy, but it can also boost your performance and mental alertness. Just be sure to speak to your doctor or pharmacist before starting ginseng, as it can interfere with some medications.
Here’s a plant that many aren’t familiar with but may want to take the time to do a little research on. In this Left Coast Kratom review, you’ll find out what to look for in a high-quality product, what forms Kratom is available in, and more. Kratom is said to give people an energy boost and even help them to stay focused. Some of the strains can be used as a stimulant. Keep in mind not all strains or formulations offer the same benefits, which is why research is smart.
Peppermint is one of those things that offer all kinds of fabulous benefits, making it a great item to reach for. If you want to use peppermint to boost your energy, try peppermint essential oil. When mixed with a carrier oil, you can rub it on your wrists, behind your ears, or even dab it on your temples. It offers immediate results, with many stating that they feel more “clear-headed” and energized.
You can also enjoy the benefits of peppermint by using the essential oil in a diffuser. Just be sure you don’t drink the peppermint essential oil. If you want to consume peppermint, look for a peppermint tea, which is readily available nowadays.
You are probably used to cooking with rosemary but did you know it can offer health benefits as well? Rosemary is said to help with cognitive performance, which relates to energy and focus. You can use rosemary essential oil to scent the air using a diffuser, or you can add fresh sprigs of rosemary to recipes or even a glass of water. If you like having the fresh stuff on-hand, rosemary is incredibly easy to grow indoors and outdoors (in the right conditions).
Yes, that’s right, we’ve got another herb that you are used to cooking with. Sage is another powerful herb that can offer energy-boosting benefits. As a bonus, it tastes great. Just like with rosemary, you can opt for the fresh form to use in cooking or sage essential oil to use in a diffuser or topical form mixed with a carrier oil. Not only can it help with energy, but it can even help with memory. That’s a double-whammy for this herb.
Interested in growing sage at home? This is another herb you can grow year-round, just be sure if you live in a cold climate you bring it indoors for winter.
There’s No Need to Suffer from Lack of Energy
If you’re used to fighting through the afternoons, doing your best to stay focused and energized, it’s time to make some changes. Each of these plants and herbs can offer energy-boosting properties that will change the way you operate.
