January is almost over. It’s a great time to refresh our home and lifestyle. I always go through a cleaning blitz, decluttering (that’s really ongoing), and wellness check this time of year. After all the delicious foods and indulgences from the holidays it’s time to lighten things up, the natural way.
I just received my Spark Naturals January newsletter which had five great suggestions for things most important to beginning the new year. I don’t do resolutions anymore, but I do get myself back on track. What about you?
Here are five tips to using essential oils in your daily routine. Start these and after a couple weeks it will be a new lifestyle routine. And, I do think you’ll be hooked on essential oils. Fascinating little jars of potent oils for a happier and healthier 2015. Here’s to new beginnings and fresh starts!
1. Ditch your soda and Spark your drink!
We know that soda isn’t healthy, but it can be a hard habit to break, especially if you don’t like plain water. Instead, try adding a drop of Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit (any citrus oil) or Peppermint essential oil to your water (or Perrier). Your body will thank you! (Always be sure to use glass or ceramic water bottles when adding essential oils. The oils will eventually break apart the plastic.)
2. EO-boost your workout.
There are lots of ways to do this, but the easiest is probably spraying a workout towel with Peppermint essential oil so that you smell it when you wipe your sweat away. You can also add some to a spray bottle and spray clothes beforehand!
3. Grapefruit + Smooth Blend
If weight loss is in your goals this year, try diffusing Grapefruit essential oil—it’s been found to have an anti-obesity effect. Smooth-Cellulite Blend is also a great way to combat cellulite and get you looking as great as you feel!
4. Diffuse for Mood.
Health isn’t just about your physical body—emotions are a huge part of health! Invest in The Fragrant Mind and start using essential oils to support a healthy emotional stately diffusing essential oils. (You’ll be tossing those plug-in and commercial sprays for healthier natural diffusing.)
5. Prioritize Sleep.
Good sleep is a huge part of good health! There have been countless studies about the long-term health effects of skipping out on sleep. Support a healthy sleep routine by using Dream Sleep Blend before bed, diffusing Zen Grounding Blend in your bedroom, or simply using Lavender to help your body catch some quality ZZZs!
