How can essential oils help me to stick with my New Year’s resolutions?

Think about what happens to most people each year after they make their New Years resolutions.

At New Years they are very excited about the future and what they are going to accomplish in the upcoming year.

But, after a few weeks, or a few months, most people give up or forget all about what they were so determined to achieve!

However, it doesn’t have to be that way!


If essential oils can help promote feelings of inspiration and empowerment, then those scents can help you to keep that determined feeling that you had on New Year’s Eve!

My friend Christina has some wonderful tips to help empower yourself to live well!

Use your essential oils while implementing these great ideas to ensure that you have a productive, healthy, organized year!

How to use essential oils to stick with my New Years resolutions

To use your essential oils to stick with your New Years resolutions, I recommend smelling and using your essential oils while making your New Years resolutions.

Then, throughout the year, continue to use and to smell your essential oils when working on your resolutions.

Or, when you start to feel like quitting and giving up, pull out your essential oil bottles and inhale deeply!

They are sure to inspire you and to help remind you of the feelings that you had while creating your list of New Year’s Resolutions!
