An Essential Oil Stimulant?

Yesterday was Sunday and during our over 100 degree weather, our central air conditioning stopped working. The indoor temperature was starting to rise, but I didn’t pay too much attention to it until I was ready to fix dinner. It was so hot when my husband got home I suggested we go out for dinner. He looked at the thermostat and it was 83 degrees and warm air was coming out of the vents. Outside, the air conditioner was making a screeching sound so we turned it off and called the AC company we use to come early Monday morning, we then packed a few things and went to a motel.

I don’t know if it’s just me or if this happens to most people when they stay in a motel; it takes me forever to finally get to bed. I can’t find anything and I usually have left something crucial at home so I’m trying to improvise. Anyway, it was quite late when I finally laid down and then I got up 30 minutes earlier than usual so I could repack and still have time to go eat the complimentary full breakfast.

The main point of this blog is to let you know how sleepy and tired I was at work today. I drank tea, water and coffee plus I nibbled on stuff all day trying to stay awake. OK, I confess, I get sleepy almost everyday at work. Tomorrow, I am going to take some peppermint essential oil and sniff it whenever that happens. PeppermintĀ is reported to have stimulating properties. I will let you know if it keeps me awake and alert or if I need to blend it with another oil.
