To be able to care for others in the best possible way, we need to focus on ourselves first.
We spend so much time taking care of everything and everyone else, we sometimes forget to show ourselves lots of love and care. Here are some of the best ways you can give yourself lots of love.
FILL YOUR CUP
Do something each day that makes you feel alive and full of love. Simple things like taking a 20-minute quiet walk or run, listening to your happy song (you should have one!), or doing something you enjoy like watercolor painting are great ways to practice self-care. When you take time to fill your cup, you’ll be able to pour into others.
Make your own spa roller for those midday breaks or any time you feel you need to take a relaxing getaway. Add 10 drops of Grapefruit and Peppermint into a 10 ml. roller then fill the rest with your favorite carrier oil for spa feels any time, anywhere.
START THE DAY RIGHT
Begin your day by placing two drops of Valor on the palm of your hands, breathe deeply, and set your intention for the day. Listen to your favorite playlist while you’re at it and you will surely have the best day!
A TIGHT HUG
Uplift your mood and soothe overwhelming emotions by diffusing five drops each of Orange and Sacred Sandalwood. When you diffuse, you create a space filled with love and comfort.
Get your senses stimulated and bloom when you diffuse six drops of Lemon, three drops of Peppermint, and five drops of Ylang Ylang in your diffuser.
HIT THE BEACH
Missing the beach? We all are! Imagine you’re having happy hour cocktails (this you can totally still do at home!) and watching the sunset. A mix of Patchouli, Juniper, and Lemon in your diffuser will give you an instant beach vibe in the comfort of your home.
Create your own spa at home and start with a roller that has 10 drops each of Frankincense and Myrrh, and add Jojoba oil to fill up the roller. Use it on your face for a fresh, radiant glow.
HAND and FOOT
A home spa isn’t complete without a hand and nail massage. Do it with a mix of Grapeseed Oil with three drops of Grapefruit and three drops of Lemon. Massage your hands and nails with this concoction so they stay moisturized. For a foot soak, you will need water and a basin, 10 smooth rocks, and a towel. Then combine one teaspoon salt, two teaspoons of olive oil, and 15 drops of Lavender in the basin, cover your feet with warm water, and use the rocks to massage your feet. Your reward after a long day!
A restful, good night’s sleep is the ultimate way to care for yourself. Roll Peace and Calming along your neckline and diffuse Lavender as you drift off to dreamland.
