I have three kids. Every day around 3:30 PM, right when I would need to pick them up from school, I would get really tired.

So I started getting afternoon lattes (coffee drinks made with espresso and steamed milk). That worked... until I wanted to sleep at night!

I knew that I needed to try something else. I recently started using essential oils and thought that I would try to make my own blend.

So I combined the En-R-Gee and Motivation blends in equal parts and mixed them with the V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex to make a roll-on. I would apply this mixture to my forearms and neck once mid morning and again around 3 PM.

After about two days I noticed that I was not tired, and I had not had a latte! I have been off of lattes for weeks now and have not done anything different except use essential oils.

After about a week I noticed increased evening energy. It was not so much a burst like that caffeine jolt I would get with the lattes. I was just perfectly not tired!
