Relax and Recharge with the Help of Essential Oils

Essential oils, natural extracts from plants with aromatic scents and healing properties, have been used to help the mind relax and the body recharge for quite some time.

All of these mental and physical stressors deplete our energy, making it difficult to get through the daily grind. Luckily, essential oils can help recharge our body and mind, as well as provide additional emotional and physical support, so that we not only get through the day, but get through it happily and healthy.

How to Starve Off Procrastination through Aromatherapy

How to Starve Off Procrastination through Aromatherapy

With back to school season now in full swing, and the appeal of reuniting with friends and catching up on all of the summer’s gossip behind us, the long tedious nights of studying and coffee have set in. Procrastination will undoubtedly become a coping mechanism for the stress; after all, the appeal of a night out with friends to forget the stress of grades is much more appealing than studying for Algebra or Criminal Procedure. (Those who are past their school years, this is for you too! After all, whether you are in school or not, the end of summer seems to denote a different type of work environment, as well as a tendency to procrastinate on other responsibilities.) While it is easy to get caught up in the lure of procrastination, it is a slippery slope and a bad habit. Luckily, with the use of essential oils and life management tips, you can fight procrastination and increase productivity.

Turn your Mundane Shower into a Spa-Like Experience with the Use of Essential Oils

Turn your Shower into a Spa with Essential Oils

With our busy schedules of rushing to get to work, to get the kids ready for school or bed, to get breakfast or dinner on the table, or to make it to that 6 A.M. yoga class with a few minutes to spare, it is no surprise that our morning and night routines often feel rushed. This is especially true of showering, which is often seen solely as a means to get clean (and much less often an enjoyable experience). That is not to say that even a rushed shower is not enjoyable, as it is often the highlight of a busy, long or sweaty day. However, even with minimal time to get yourself clean, you can still spruce up your shower experience even more with the use of essential oils. And while your morning or evening routine may still be hectic, an aromatherapy shower will leave you more relaxed and at peace to deal with the stressors of the day.

Tips to Maintain Healthy Skin Throughout the Summer

Tips to Maintain Healthy Skin Throughout the Summer

Memorial Day and the Summer Solstice have come and gone, leaving with us the much-anticipated summer season! And while many of us have long awaited tanning on the beach, swimming in the pool and backyard bar-be-ques with family and friends, there is one pesky summer problem that likes to rear its ugly head just as the shorts and tank tops are unpacked for the summer: skin problems. The sweat caused by heat and humidity, the drying effects of the sun, and even the products we use to protect ourselves from burns and bites can leave our skin feeling as though there is a lot to be desired. Plus, with the glow of a tan and the business of the season, it is very easy to neglect skin care routines during the summer. However, it can be very quick and simple to guarantee that your skin looks, feels and is healthy all summer long.

Steps to Achieve and Live a More Harmonious Life

Live a More Harmonious Life

When many adults feel stress, they have a common reaction: I wish I were on a beach somewhere far away with a cold drink in my hand. And while that may sound like the dream vacation, underneath it all, it is not what we really wish for at stressful or difficult times in our life. What we really need is more peace and harmony. Through the normal obligations and stressors of life, you may believe that this goal is hard to achieve. But it can be easier than you think if you make it a priority to bring more harmony to your life. Everyone’s idea of harmony and a happy lifestyle is different; however, the steps you can take to achieve inner peace and a happier life are very simple.

Combining the Power of Touch and Aromatherapy

Power of Touch and Aromatherapy

Even if it is not something you realize consciously, human touch is an extraordinarily powerful tool that provides benefits to both the body and the mind. A simple hug can change someone’s outlook on a day. A touch from a significant other can say “i love you” without an exchange of words. A sensuous massage can set a mood. Cradling a baby can help the baby grow and prosper (and stop crying!). Simply stated, touch can relieve stress and muscle tension, and provide positive benefits for the mind.
