This is a remedy to tiredness and exhaustion that I always remember my great-aunt promoting. She had a little clasp necklace, something like a locket. Inside she would put a tiny piece of cotton wool and soak it in lemon essential oil. Whenever she started to feel a bit sleepy she would open the locket and take a sniff. The strong scent of lemon would snap her back into focus. This seems a little odd I realise, but actually a harmless technique to try. Rather than feeding your coffee addiction maybe give it a go. If lemon isn’t for you, try another oil maybe. Just nothing that will make you more sleepy! A solution sworn by my family as the ultimate cure to exhaustion in the work day.

What You'll Need

  • A locket
  • Essential oil - lemon or anything that will wake you up
  • Cotton wool

What You'll Do

  • Pull off a tiny piece of cotton wool
  • Place it inside your locket or clasp pendent
  • Drip the essential oil onto the wool - practically soak it!
  • Open up your locket when you're beginning to dose off and take a sniff

Tips & Warnings

  • This is not an alternative to sleep! Just a tip for anyone who leads a busy life and needs to snap back to attention.
