Experiencing the healing scents of essential oils can reduce anxiety, ease minor aches and pains and even get you (or your significant other) in the mood. Practicing at-home aromatherapy starts with understanding how to handle these powerful oils and which scents you may want to choose.
Your At-Home Spa
While there’s a good chance you already have a bathing routine, what about a bathing ritual? Regularly getting in the bathtub simply to relax, be alone and feel the warmth of the water surrounding you can restore your mind, body and soul.
We tend to associate candles with festive, special occasions, but the calming effect of candlelight can be a simple yet sacred tool to help reduce daily stress and increase self-awareness. Turn off the world and tune into yourself with a flickering flame.
Immersing your feet in a tub of warm water, even without anything extra in it, is a nice way to relax after a long day. A foot soak soothes your muscles, hydrates your skin and can relieve aches and pains due to standing for hours or walking in uncomfortable shoes.
