It’s officially winter (in my book), I’ve turned on the “happy lamp.” Yes, I am one of those people who gets ungodly cranky without the sun; my hat is off to those of you who can tolerate days/weeks without seeing its rays. I have a really hard time stumbling out of bed when it’s still dark outside; even my first cup of “jet fuel” coffee can’t kick me into gear. So, I started using my “happy lamp” in the morning while reading the paper for the absent sun.
Aside from what some people may think, I really can’t sit in front of the lamp all day eating bon-bons. While taking Kiki for a walk in the cold air is a nice wake-up, I want to snuggle under blankets when I get home. So, I need more to keep me energized throughout the day. Here are my three favorite “energizing” necessities:
- Green Envee Indonesian Patchouli and Orange Body Wash & Lotion: While Patchouli is great for balancing emotions (read: crankiness!), the orange essential oils gives a natural energy burst. Hand-made in Illinois, organic, and no gross chemicals! Wash, lotion, or gift set available. Did you hear… Green Envee has recently been added to 43 Omni Hotels/Spas?! Way to go!

- Energizing Soy Candle: Need a caffeine-free energy boost? This pure essential oil blend of Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Clove & Lavender will help awaken the senses. Keeps me awake at my desk! (http://www.favortheearth.com/cgi-bin/productDetails.cgi?pid=232&cid=3)
- Rosemary Beeswax Candle: I know, I just said the soy candle. I keep the soy on my desk (because it comes in a jar), but I like the beeswax pillars in the kitchen on a pretty plate. Rosemary essential oil is stimulating & energizing; and burning beeswax emits negative ions that draw toxins, dust, pollen, mold and mildew from the air.
