Did you know April is Stress-Awareness Month? Between building a career, raising kids, nurturing friendships, and just trying to be a good human, everyone experiences stress. Stress isn’t always a bad thing; it can be a sign you’re learning, growing, or experiencing new things. But it’s important to practice self-care regularly to help keep your stress in check.
Self-care includes things like exercise, hobbies, journaling, or pampering yourself. Honestly, it’s anything that gives you space to recognize and meet your needs. Scenting your home, office, or car with essential oils is an easy way to make self-care a part of your daily routine. A natural, grounding aroma can be a gentle reminder to take a deep breath and give yourself some grace. Below are some of our favorite scents for self-care!
The Reflect essential oil blend is made up of Gurjan Balsam, Bergamot, Black Pepper, Himalayan Cedarwood, and more. It’s an earthy, uplifting aroma that’s perfect for diffusing when you feel like you need some wind in your sails.
There’s a reason Lavender essential oil is a classic scent for self-care. Its light, floral aroma is an ideal essential oil to make part of your bedtime routine. Diffuse it on your nightstand in the evening to remind you to let go of the day and sink into sleep.
If you’d like a sampling of self-care essential oils, the Self-Care 101 essential oil set may be right up your alley. This collection includes the citrusy Radiance blend, soothing Embrace blend, luxurious Bergamot, and bright Persian Lime. This set gives you choices for diffusing. For example, you can diffuse Persian Lime during your morning commute for an extra burst of sunshine. Or you could diffuse the Embrace blend during meditation to enhance your experience. With the Self-Care 101 set, the options are endless.
However you choose to practice self-care, what’s most important is you make time for it regularly. Take that yoga class. Pull out your craft supplies. Schedule a night out. Diffuse your favorite essential oil scent. Show yourself love and care so you can live life—with all its ups and downs—to the fullest.
