There are a lot of ways to enjoy summer even if you are stuck working. Finding these enjoyable means to bring summer into our day when we can’t be out chasing the butterflies helps us feel more positive, lighter and active. Summer is a higher energy time of year for most of us as we tend to have more energy in general due to the longer daylight hours and warmer temperatures. It is a time to move and enjoy and be kid like.
So how do you do that when you still have to work during the week or weekends or basically anytime duty calls? Not everyone can take the summer off and instead find themselves working just like they were before the calendar flipped to warmer times.
Now that I work much more at home than I used to I enjoy setting up my doTERRA Brevi diffuser in my office each morning with something light, citrus based and fun. When I travel I always take my doTERRA Lumo Lite diffuser with me for use in my hotel room too.
Diffusing is an easy way to life spirits, filter the air and enjoy aromas that are summery and light for us to enjoy while we work. Just because you are working doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it … or try to.
Some of my favorite summer diffuser blends are listed right here on this handy recipe sheet doTERRA published some time ago. I’ve modified a few where I like but the base of these recipes is pleasant, light and perfect for supporting work focus but recognizing and honoring that it is summer.
You’ll notice a lot of these recipes use a citrus oil or even two. That’s because these are energy oils that help us focus and feel more alert, active and are reminiscent of summer! By the way the Mint Creamsicle recipe is super yummy and fun to diffuser in the office.
Boost Your Energy
Applying oils to the bottom of your feet is an excellent way to get the healing and supportive benefits directly to your cells quickly. Doing this in the morning helps you start your day off right with a positive mood and energy that can carry you through the entire day.
As you get ready for work in the morning simply apply a drop of Balance and OnGuard to each foot bottom. Balance is a wonderful blend of oils specifically aimed for creating that hormonal and energy balance within our cells. OnGuard is for our immunity support. Both oils help us navigate through the stress of our day and protect our precious adrenals.
One of my favorite things to do is add a drop of doTERRA essential oils directly into my coffee. This is a great way to receive the benefits of the oils and give a fun twist to my morning coffee.
Try adding a drop of doTERRA Wild Orange or Tangerine. Just 1 drop is plenty but the addition is fun, fruity and energy filled. This not only saves at least $5 from the local coffee shop but gives you a natural filled energy boost that is good for your body.

Just because it’s summer and you’re working doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the feelings summer inspires. Incorporating doTERRA all natural and pure high quality oils is a perfect way to infuse your work days with summer and give your body a much needed boost.
If you’re using other oils and not comfortable ingesting them I’d caution you against also diffusing and applying them to your body. I only trust doTERRA oils due to their commitment for purity, high testing standards and attention to the detail.
