What is fatigue?

To select the right essential oil, you have to understand the difference between physical fatigue and mental fatigue, as the essential oils to use are not the same:

  • Physical fatigue: your muscles are not able to maintain optimal physical performance, notably after intense physical exercise. You don't have the strength to do anything that requires a little effort
  • Mental fatigue: your brain is not able to work at its best, which usually occur after prolonged periods of cognitive activity. You feel sleepy, or lack attention to what you are doing.

Essential oils for fatigue

Physical Fatigue

Stimulants essential oils work the best for physical fatigue, without the problems linked to stimulants like coffee, tea, alcohol or drugs. These will help the body to recover from fatigue: Basil, Geranium, Nutmeg, Rosemary, or Thyme.

The best is to do massage using a blend of two or three of these oils, to restore tone to the body, clear the mind and give renewed energy. You can also do a bath using 6 drops of Geranium, Rosemary, Thyme or Marjoram, which can be very invigorating.

An other solution can be to use essential oils that are relaxing, soothing and enhance sleep, to replenish energy in a natural way. Lavender and Camomile are the two obvious choices.

Mental Fatigue

For mental fatigue, the most often used oils are Basil, Peppermint and Rosemary. You can:

  • have a bath with 6 drops of Rosemary, which is an oil especially recommended when you need mental alertness, for example to complete a long intellectual work.
  • add 2 drops of Basil on your wrists to help you during the day. When you move your arms, the essential oil will slowly diffuse.

Abnormal fatigue can be a symptom of depression. See the page about depression for more information.

When your fatigue is chronic, Peppermint and Basil are the most recommended. You can alternate between both to avoid that your body get accustomed to one specific oil and stop to react.
