Relaxation Gifts For Nurses
Gifts that say ‘thank you’ to some of the hardest working frontline workers in our lives.
Our top picks for relaxation gifts for nurses
There’s no doubt who tops the list when it comes to the people in our lives we’d like to celebrate for their hard work, grit and determination; nurses. Whether friends, family members, colleagues or caretakers, it’s fair to say that nurses have had it especially tough over the last year.
We’ve been asked a number of times for our best recommendations and suggestions when it comes to supporting the wellbeing of nurses with natural, good-for-them products and so we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite wellness goodies to help nurture, support and enhance their self care routines from head to toe.
Relaxation gifts for nurses: support their energy levels
Did you know the average shift for a nurse ranges anywhere from 8-12 hours? During this time they’re often run off their feet, tending to patients and supporting doctors in many different areas requiring patience and precision. Gifting products that help to provide a natural boost can support their day feeling that much easier.
Gifts we love for a natural lift:
Energy roll-on: this boosting blend is formulated with revitalizing and stimulating essential oils like peppermint, rosemary and lemon and can help both your body and mind feel rejuvenated either in the morning or during the afternoon slump. Try rolling onto pulse points like temples and wrists, or rolling onto the palms of the hands and breathing deeply for some extra pep in your step!
Refresh mist: sometimes feeling refreshed is as simple as… a spritz of refresh mist! This personal mist has been blended with invigorating essential oils like lemon, spearmint and eucalyptus and can be used to help give you a sunny disposition. Try misting in the area above your head and with your eyes and mouth closed, taking a few deep breaths. Taking a moment for yourself is sometimes all you need to take on the rest of the day with vigor!
Elevate diffuser blend: breathing in essential oils through the fine, cool mist of an ultrasonic diffuser is another one of the quick and easy ways to get a burst of wellness throughout the day. We love this tart, citrusy blend that’s been formulated with lemongrass, mandarin and yuzu to help us feel positive, uplifted and well overall.
Relaxation gifts for nurses: support their stress levels
This year like no other has brought unprecedented levels of stress to many of our lives, and we know how important it is to manage this as quickly as we can. Stress can wreak havoc in all aspects of our lives - from how to sleep to how we feel throughout the day. Luckily, we’re here to recommend some of the tried and tested plant-based natural wellness products we use to help keep stress, nervousness, anxious feelings and overwhelm at bay.
Gifts we love for a natural stress release:
Stress Release body oil: body oil can be used for so many different purposes, which is why this versatile oil blend is one of the top recommendations we have for stress management. Body oils can be used for massage which is an excellent way to reduce tension and physical stress in the body, as well as adding moisture to the skin either in a bath or applied as a moisturizer. This formula contains lavender, the most well known essential oil for supporting calm and relaxation, orange which can act as a mood booster to relieve heavy energies and clary sage, a powerful euphoric essential oil to ease worries and calm the mind.
Unwind roll-on: we love our roll-on’s as gifts for nurses because they are convenient and portable for on-the-go. It’s easy to tuck these little bottles into their pockets while on shift to support a personal moment of wellness and relaxation that so many of us need right now. Unwind is a floral and sweet blend of oils like lavender, bergamot and cinnamon. This combination helps to support feeling eased and soothed, and allows stressful feelings to melt away. Try applying along the pulse points like behind the ears, below the chin and on the wrists to feel balanced and supported.
Bliss diffuser blend: this is a diffuser blend we love because of how it soothes the mind and creates feelings of peacefulness and calm in the body. Formulated with nurturing essential oils like rose and geranium, it also includes citruses of grapefruit and orange to encourage feeling uplifted. We love to diffuse this blend anytime we need a moment of self love and self compassion, or whenever we’re feeling down and want to lift our spirits.
Relaxation gifts for nurses: support the air in their home
One of the gifts that we believe truly keeps on giving is the gift of refreshed and naturally scented air in your home. Diffusers have gained in popularity in recent years, and for good reason! Diffusers are heat-free, cool mist units that use only cool water and 100% pure essential oils to create an oasis in the home. You can use a diffuser to scent your space with your favorite aromas like citrus fruits, flowers or tree scents and you can tailor how you want to feel in your environment. For example if you want to feel extra focused on your work from home day, you might choose boosting oils like peppermint or rosemary and if you want to feel relaxed and de-stressed, you might reach for calmer oils like lavender and roman chamomile. Regardless of your preference, you first need to start with a whisper quiet, chic and stylish diffuser! We’re suggesting two of our favorites below.
Gifts we love for a naturally scented home:
Aroma Om white ceramic: our award-winning diffuser called the Aroma Om is popular not only for it’s classic, timeless look but for the ease with which it brings refreshed air to your home. Offering both a continuous and intermittent operating function, the Aroma Om can run between 3-6 hours and also offers an optional LED light feature. We love this diffuser in the bedroom or the home office.
Aroma Gem matte black: this in-house designed diffuser is made of a chic matte black glass and offers a 4.5-9 hour run time, based on a continuous or intermittent setting. For the person who prefers dark, rich tones in their home, this uniquely designed diffuser just might hit the mark! We love this diffuser in a guest bedroom, foyer or living room.
Relaxation gifts for nurses: support their sleep
The most important pillar of wellness that is often overlooked when it comes to taking care of ourselves is sleep. If we think managing stress is important, we don’t even know where to begin when talking about sleep! Sleep plays an integral role in not only managing our physical health but in supporting our emotional well-being Putting sleep at the top of the priority list for the nurses in our lives is just one of the many things we can do to support their self care routines and wellness regimens.
Gifts we love for a naturally sound sleep:
Sleep Well bath salts: can you think of anything as relaxing as a bath? When you’re looking for something to help you calm down as you head towards bedtime, look no further than these soothing, balancing and calming bath salts from our Sleep Well line, formulated with sea salt, epsom salt and essential oils of tangerine, blue chamomile and vetiver. A warm bath in the evening time can help set us up for a restful night of sleep which, let’s face it, should be at the top of all of our wish lists.
Sleep Well body butter: we love the dual functionality of this rich, luxurious body butter! Not only does it nourish and hydrate the skin to keep you feeling moisturized, it can be used as part of a nighttime routine to help encourage the body to transition to rest. Formulated with ultra peaceful ingredients like valerian, vetiver and lavender, we love this post-bath or shower as part of our wind down rituals.
Tranquility diffuser blend one of our very favorite scents to signal the brain and body that it’s time to relax is a blend called Tranquility. Soothing marjoram meets calming roman chamomile and ylang ylang, which is really just a recipe for the ultimate in rest and relaxation. Try diffusing 5-10 drops in the hour before you’re ready to climb into bed.
