With the wellness industry exploding, you are probably paying more attention to your mental and physical well-being. Rather than just surviving, wellness focuses on thriving by nourishing every aspect of your life. And essential oils can play a significant role in your wellness journey.
Wondering how? Well, your sense of smell is quite powerful and can help you feel relaxed, inspired, nostalgic, refreshed, and so much more. If you are unsure about how you can incorporate essential oils into your lifestyle, we are happy to help. In this post, we’re sharing creative ways you can start using essential oils. Let’s dive in.
Make Bath Extra Relaxing
Picture this- soothing music, a glass of wine and a perfectly warm bath. What could possibly make this setup even more relaxing? Essential oils! A couple of drops of Lavender or Eucalyptus oils can help you unwind after an exhausting day. Stock up on essential oils for spa-like baths.
Fill Your Home with Pleasant Aroma
Essential oils are potent enough to make your entire house smell fantastic. All you need is an aroma diffuser and your favorite essential oils.
Curate Homemade Products
There are several reasons why people make products at home. It could be to control the ingredients or for their small business. From bath products to candles, essential oils can become the star ingredient for your homemade products. Apart from a pleasing fragrance, certain essential oils can add antibacterial properties to your bath products.
Sleep issues are becoming increasingly common. If you struggle to fall asleep at night, aromatherapy can help you feel calm. Lavender, Peppermint, and Cedarwood are some essential oils that have relaxing properties. You can combine distilled water with your essential oils of choice to create a pillow spray.
If you have been struggling to concentrate at home or school, essential oils can help improve your focus. Spearmint, Lemon, and Rosemary essential oils have been shown to boost focus, mood, and motivation.
Even after washing linens, they may end up smelling musty when stored in a closed cupboard. To make your linens smell fresher for longer, we suggest creating a spray with essential oils. You just need to combine vodka, distilled water, and essential oils in appropriate ratios.
Elevate Cleaning Products
Many people resort to making cleaning products at home to eliminate harmful chemicals and save more. However, homemade cleaning solution recipes often contain vinegar, which has an unpleasant odor. You can easily mask the potent smell of vinegar with essential oils.
We tend to become accustomed to our home’s unique smell. Therefore, you may not be able to tell if your home is smelling bad because of your trash. Save yourself from such a blunder by deodorizing your trash cans with essential oils.
Get Rid of Blemishes
Breakouts are annoying, but the blemishes they leave behind can be equally upsetting. Did you know Tea Tree essential oil is effective in lightening the appearance of dark spots? This oil also has antibacterial properties when used appropriately. So consider adding it to your skincare routine.
Create a Signature Scent
Despite countless perfumes available on the market, are you struggling to find a scent that’s right for you? Luckily, concocting your signature scent isn’t as difficult as you may think. You just need a few ingredients, such as carrier oils and essential oils, to curate perfumes.
