I regularly fall victim to the afternoon slump. At about 3:00, I feel tired, achy and spent after going from meeting to meeting or after hammering out stories and edits at my desk all day.

To help tackle desk drain (in addition to grabbing a much-needed beer), I clear my mind and try to ease up the knots that develop in my shoulders by rubbing in some H. Gillerman Organics Clear Mind Tension Remedy. The peppermint tingle has a cooling effect on both my head and my body, and I like the relaxing calm I feel after inhaling the aromas.

I like the portability of this little 8mL dropper bottle — but the price is a bit steep ($48!). However, it’s made with certified organic ingredients (lavenden super, a hybrid of lavender vera and spike lavender, and peppermint) and bears the USDA organic seal of approval.

Because it’s made with potent, pure essential oils designed to calm your senses yet stimulate your nerves, it doesn’t take much — a couple drops for your shoulders — to get the full effect and maximize your bottle of sanity. I’ve been sharing this bottle of goodness with my fellow editors, and it seems to be a hit. Just be aware that our section of the office does get a bit minty at this time of day!

  • I am almost religious about my 3pm snack time. Normally it’s something healthy like fruit, yogurt, cheese, that sort of thing, but around the holidays, I call it, “Tea and Cookie Time” becuase that’s exactly what I eat. Maybe I should invest in some Clear Mind Tension Remedy to save my waistline this holiday season?

  • @kristina yeap, snacks + caffeine + peppermint oil = reinvigorated kimmie! :) i’m no angel. :)

  • @stacy um i really like the idea of tea and cookie time! and with the holidays coming up, peppermint tea + peppermint cookies + peppermint oil? yes please. :)

  • Ah! I hate the 3:00 slump! I usually have a cup of coffee, which I know isn’t the best :/ I should try this out!!

  • @megan don’t delete the coffee! just add the peppermint oil :)

  • kim! i’m so there! have the macarons waiting for me!! haha ;)

  • Hi Kim, thanks for stimulating! discussion on afternoon slump.

    Ever notice that sometimes the afternoon cup-a-joe doesn’t work? That’s your brain chemistry actually slowing you down to balance the routine ingestion of caffeine. Organic peppermint from India, blended with organic lavender, stimulate blood flow to the brain making it the tried-and-true combo for mental fatigue, headaches, migraines and neck tension. What else can relax us while waking us up at the same time? And afternoon slump isn’t just in your head. When we slump our spine goes out of balance and our neck and shoulder muscles tense up making it harder to sit comfortably and breath fully. Try stretching to add to your roster of afternoon stimulants…your brain needs oxygen too! take care, Hope

    • @hope thanks so much for stopping by the blog and offering some great tips and insights! You are exactly right about peppermint and lavender’s ability to both uplift and soothe you at the same time…I really love this bottle of magic!
