Essential oil blends to support your optimal personal wellness.
With the self care industry generating roughly $11 billion annually, what have you done to prioritize your wellness lately? No longer reserved for those with a seemingly limitless supply of time and money, we know that investing in yourself - your mental health, your quality of sleep, your skin care routine, movement for your body - is imperative for your long term wellbeing and helping to support you in knowing your worth.
One part of self care is thoughtfully and mindfully choosing the products you use to treat your body, that can in turn have an effect on your mind. We’re going to look at five products we believe can support you in creating balance and harmony in yourself.
Self care products for emotional nourishment: Rose hydrating euphoric mist.
Rose, the queen of essential oils, is nurturing and uplifting, with a delicate aroma of sweetness layered with subtle-fresh and floral top notes. Rose is said to nurture the ‘inner child’, and can be used during emotionally trying times to relieve feelings of grief and sadness 1. As a mist, this product is perfect for treating yourself to a wellness moment. Try spritzing your face after cleansing; mist 3-4 times and breathe deeply to experience being soothed and restored. You can also use rose mist as a personal fragrance, or to mist over your pillows and bedding.
Self care products for feeling fresh: Exotic crystal fresh deodorant.
Reality is, scary evidence-based research exists to tell us that there is growing cause for concern linking an increased risk of breast cancer to the aluminum found in antiperspirants. Luckily, we have a choice in what we apply to our delicate underarm area each day. Natural alternatives like our crystal fresh spray deodorants have a base of liquified mineral salts, also called potassium alum. Not to be confused with aluminum, potassium alum is a naturally occurring mineral salt that is mined from volcanic sediment and rock, and the salt is thought to reduce or eliminate the bacteria that causes odor in the underarms. We take this liquified base and then add a blend of essential oils - in this case, earthy patchouli, woodsy sandalwood and sweet lavender - to help you stay fresh and feel clean all day long. Bonus: the spray isn’t sticky, won’t clog your pores and doesn’t stain your clothing. A tip when transitioning to natural deodorant? Keep the bottle with you in your backpack or purse for a midday refresh.
Self care products for confidence and vitality: Goddess euphoric oil blend.
One of our favorite ways to treat ourselves is with products formulated with essential oils that just make you feel good. Goddess is one of our most decadent blends; citrusy orange, rich jasmine, sweet neroli and warming vanilla make this blend feel empowering, sensual and uplifting. Jasmine is known to help encourage vitality and intimacy 2, while neroli helps to soothe insecurity, enabling feelings of peace and harmony 3. Roll this enlivening blend anywhere you want to feel connected to your inner goddess; temples, wrists, pulse points and behind your ears.
Self care products for glowing skin: Bare face complete makeup remover.
One of the ultimate ways you can care for yourself is to take good care of your skin. We know why it’s important to wash your face before bed, and so we’re loving on this all-in-one makeup remover to help speed up the process. This is a blend of fractionated coconut oil, witch hazel and aloe vera, all gentle enough to use all over the face, including the delicate eye area. We chose these ingredients strategically; coconut oil is both cleansing and balancing, allowing makeup to be removed gently, but thoroughly, witch hazel is an ingredient commonly used to ease and soothe inflamed or sensitive skin, and aloe vera helps skin feel refreshed. You can apply this calming remover with your hands or with a washcloth, being sure to rinse well and pat dry. Follow with a cleanser, toner and moisturizer of your choice, for soft, supple skin.
Self care products for a good night’s rest: Sleep Well bedtime coconut and shea body butter.
What better way to end your day than by nourishing and hydrating your skin at bedtime? This moisturizing blend is as rich and buttery as it is comforting to the skin and relaxing to the mind. The superhero ingredients in this blend include essentials oils of valerian, promoting inner tranquility and deep relaxation 4, Roman chamomile, known to reduce restlessness and ease away stress 5 and Lavender, probably the most well-known essential oil for inducing feelings of calm and tranquility 6. Slather on this delicious treat for your skin as desired in the evening, and watch your worries drift away.
Self care comes in many forms. Whether taking time for yourself means a humble walk in nature, devouring a chapter of a book by your favorite author or making time to connect with loved ones, remember this: self care isn’t selfish. Put yourself first, explore products and rituals that make you feel happy and confident, and rest assured knowing you’re making choices that support you and the people in your life, for the long term. As the old saying goes, ‘you can’t pour from an empty cup’.
