Generally linked to too intense activity, emotional shock or even stress, fatigue can also be a symptom of more serious disorders such as hormonal imbalances, infectious diseases or even metabolic deficiencies. Even if this second type of case must be treated at the source to completely get back into shape, certain essential oils can help to stimulate and boost the body.

Why these essential oils?

Peppermint as a stimulant for the body

L'peppermint essential oil has a molecule with toning properties. This is menthol, an alcohol representing up to 50% of its composition. It will stimulate several functions of the body and thus “wake it up”.

This stimulation takes place at different levels. On the one hand, through its hypertensive action, it will raise the low blood pressure sometimes observed in cases of fatigue. Generally speaking, it also tones the cardiac system. On the other hand, this essential oil is a good energizer and brain stimulant. These varied effects that Peppermint presents will help to invigorate the body effectively.

Black Epinette: the anti-pump par excellence

Lblack Spruce essential oil is the “anti-kick” oil by reference. Its majority composition of monoterpenes makes it an essential oil with extremely tonic properties. It notably contains alpha pinene, a molecule with the “cortison-like” action sought here.

Through this hormonal effect, it intervenes on the “pituitary-cortical-adrenal” axis. This endocrine system governs the body's various processes and, when it fails, states of fatigue are often felt. Thus, by modulating hormonal mechanisms, Black Spruce essential oil will provide general stimulation of the body to quickly get it back on its feet.

Scots Pine as a physical tonic

To put all the chances on your side to revitalize the body, combine thescots Pine essential oil to that of Épinette Noire is the gesture to take. Just like the latter, it has alpha pinene with very important “cortison-like” effects for this synergy. In Scots Pine essential oil, alpha pinene is associated with a unique combination of molecules, which could explain its unique and complementary action to that of Black Spruce.

In this way, Scots Pine essential oil, described as "the greatest physical tonic", will restore your lost shape.

Basil to soothe nervous fatigue

Stress and overwork put the body under tension, the nerves are extremely stressed and the muscles are often tense. L'basil essential oil will be active on these points. It is first of all a very good anti-stress: its rebalancing action will soothe nervous fatigue.

It is also a powerful antispasmodic due to its methylchavicol content. This molecule will effectively relax the muscles by modulating their contractions. Mixed with Peppermint, Black Spruce and Scots Pine, Basil essential oil will help you regain optimal mental and physical fitness.

Why this vegetable oil?

Argan vegetable oil

In case of severe fatigue, we try to wake up quickly. L'argan vegetable oil thus allows essential oils to penetrate quickly into the body, thanks to its affinity with the skin barrier. Thus, the active ingredients will act very quickly in the body to give you that little immediate boost. The little extra of Argan: its penetrating power will not leave a greasy film on your skin.
