Natural Menstrual Pain Relief

Natural Menstrual Pain Relief

For many women, the pain that comes along with their menstrual cycle can be truly debilitating. Sometimes it feels like there isn’t much that will work to relieve some of that pain other than strong painkillers, but there are some natural options that have proven to be helpful for many. Essential oils and other natural practices can be game-changing!

Here are a few natural options for natural menstrual pain relief:

Lavender Oil
When you have your monthly period, the uterus and surrounding blood vessels become inflamed, which can cause quite a bit of pain. Instead of powering through it or popping some pills one after another, lavender oil can help to take the edge off. Lavender is known for its calming properties, both on the mind and the muscles. Run a hot shower and use our Lavender-Infused 100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist to make this happen!

Applying Heat
Sometimes the most simple of remedies can have the biggest impact! Applying heat will help your muscles to relax and therefore help with cramps. You can do this by using an inexpensive heating pad from your local drugstore or soaking in a hot bath. Take this time to relax and take your mind off the discomfort that you’re feeling.

Peppermint Oil
Fluctuating hormones during your monthly cycle can cause headaches, nausea, and fatigue, but peppermint oil can help alleviate those symptoms! Peppermint oil can be used in a variety of ways to get relief from these symptoms, but one of our favorite methods is using our Mint-Infused 100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist. Run a hot shower and spritz a few sprays into the steam and away from your face. Breathing in those amazing benefits and relaxing in the hot shower will be sure to help.

Healthy Diet and Hydration
You might be rolling your eyes, but it’s true! Being vigilant about eating a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fruits, vegetables, nuts, lean proteins, and whole grains will help you stay healthy. When your body isn’t healthy, any pain or other issues will feel magnified. Hydration is also key. Dehydration can cause muscle cramps, which will make cramps feel even worse. Make sure your drinking that water — it makes a huge difference!

Turn Your Shower Into a Spa Experience

Turn Your Shower Into a Spa Experience

“Self-care” is definitely a popular buzzword that’s floating around the internet recently, but there really is some truth to being sure that you are taking care of yourself mind, body, and soul. How can we make that happen in such a fast-paced environment that we live in? Are we supposed to take a trip to the spa every week for an hour-long massage? Get 12 hours of sleep every night? Hire a personal chef to make sure all our meals are healthy and balanced?

No, not necessarily. Some of those things are impractical and impossible! One of our favorite ways to practice self-care is to turn an everyday shower experience into a spa-like experience.

Health and Wellness Gifts for your Graduate

Health and Wellness Gifts for your Graduate

Ready or not, graduation season is upon us! The high school and college seniors in our lives will soon be completing their schooling and moving on to the next big chapter in their lives. To celebrate this big accomplishment, consider giving a gift that will help them to stay healthy and well during this next chapter of your graduate’s life.

Here are a few of our favorite products that we think your graduate would love to have as a gift to celebrate this big accomplishment:

Aromatherapy Diffuser
A diffuser can be used for several different purposes. In most on-campus housing situations, candles are not allowed in dorm rooms because they are a fire hazard. If your grad wants to keep his or her dorm smelling great while also getting benefits from essential oils, a diffuser is a great option!

To use a diffuser, simply fill the water tank and spritz a couple of sprays of one of our 100% Eucalyptus ShowerMists into the water and turn it on. Especially in a small space like a dorm room or small apartment, the scent will be strong, but not overpowering. For your grad, maybe gift them our Lavender-Infused Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMists so he or she can diffuse it next to their bed at night to help them sleep after a late night of studying.

Menthol Crystals and Warmer
For a student or someone entering the job market for the first time, Menthol Crystals can be a multi-purpose powerhouse. Our all-natural crystals are colorless and clear, and a natural by-product of steam-distilled peppermint essential oil. They can be used to deodorize a room from stinky clothes before your college student can get home to do laundry, and help relieve him or her from any illnesses they contract on campus because they will help to help relieve coughing, congestion, symptoms of the flu, and upper respiratory problems. At the very least, they are invigorating and help promote focus.

100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist
Especially if your student is living in a dorm, it can be hard to feel at home on campus. One way you can help is by giving them a gift that will turn their bathroom into a spa experience with our 100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMists. After running a hot shower, simply spritz a few sprays of the ShowerMist of your choice into the steam and away from the face. Your student’s bathroom in their dorm or first apartment will be transformed! Try gifting your student our Mint-Infused Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist so he or she can start their day focused and invigorated.

How will you be celebrating the grad in your life this spring?

5 Tips to Get Naturally-Glowing Skin

5 Tips to Get Naturally-Glowing Skin

You’re not alone if you’re on the quest for younger-looking, glowing skin. You’re also not alone if you’d like to make that happen with natural ingredients or practices, not synthetic ones. Well, you’re in luck! One of our favorite ways to improve our skin’s quality is by using essential oils and other natural practices.

Not sure where to start? Here are some easy changes you can make to your daily routine that will help you get naturally-glowing skin without much work:

Lavender oil is one of the most well-known essential oils when it comes to skincare. You’ll find many products on the market that have lavender included in the ingredients and for good reason! One of the best ways to keep your skin looking youthful is to also keep it hydrated, which is where lavender comes in. Lavender is dry skin’s best friend! One way to get these benefits onto your skin is by putting a drop of lavender essential oil into your daily moisturizer and rub it in. Always test it on a small patch before you cover your entire face, though. Just because a product is natural doesn’t mean that you aren’t allergic to it!

Tea Tree
Tea Tree oil has been used to treat blemishes for years and years. It is antiseptic, antiviral, and antibacterial. If you have a spot on your face, try putting a little dab of tea tree oil directly on it, but remember… a little goes a long way! You can also add a few drops to some raw honey and put an even layer of the mixture on your face few a few minutes as a natural face mask. It’s a little messy, but great for your skin!

Eucalyptus oil is also an incredible addition to your skincare routine. Not only does it have an invigorating scent, but will invigorate your skin by improving circulation. More blood flow means that your skin cells will repair more quickly, leading to a glowing complexion. Our favorite way to use eucalyptus is with our 100% Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist. Simply run a hot shower and spritz a few sprays away from your face and into the steam, and relax while you’re skin thanks you!

Stay Hydrated
Anytime skincare is discussed, someone will always bring up drinking a lot of water to improve your skin’s health and appearance, and they’re right! Staying hydrated and flushing out toxins by drinking a lot of water will highly improve your skin’s appearance. If drinking a lot of water is hard for you, maybe treat yourself to a new water bottle for so motivation or download an app on your phone that will let you track your water intake and also remind you when it’s been a while since your last glass.

Keep Your Pillowcase and Towels Clean
Another easy way to make sure your skin is at its best is to wash your pillowcase more often. If you don’t, you’re basically rubbing your face with bacteria, dirt, and sweat while you sleep, which doesn’t help improve your skin. Same goes with your face towels. If you’re using the same towel to dry your face for a week or more, it won’t do your skin any favors.

Traveling with Essential Oils

Traveling with Essential Oils

With summer quickly approaching, many of us have a vacation or weekend getaway planned. Did you know that you can use essential oils to improve your experience? Essential oils can be used for multitudes of reasons, from helping with sicknesses to repelling bugs. What’s not to love?

Here are a few essential oils that get help with your travel experience:

Peppermint is a very popular essential oil because it has a wide array of uses. Peppermint can help tremendously with nausea. If you are feeling motion sickness, sea sick, or ate something that didn’t agree with you, sniffing Peppermint directly from the bottle can greatly improve how you feel. You can also use our Mint-Infused Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist as a pillow mist to help ease your nausea while you rest, or while you take a hot shower.

Tea Tree
Tea Tree is a great essential oil for bug bites, bumps, or scratches because of its healing and purifying properties. It can be applied directly to the skin to help with any healing wounds and bug bites (avoid applying to open wounds or bites — it will burn).

If you are feeling a cough coming on that you don’t want to ruin your vacation, use our Tea Tree-Infused Pure Eucalytpus ShowerMist with a hot shower for a clarifying and purifying experience. The antibacterial and antiviral properties will help immensely to make you feel better.

If you are going camping, hiking, or to any destination that has bugs, you will want to have Eucalyptus oil in your arsenal. Bugs can’t stand the smell, so they stay away when it comes to Eucalyptus! Spray our 100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist around the area that you want to keep bug-free. A little goes a long way. Additionally, you can spray directly onto yourself.

If you’re traveling somewhere across the globe, you’ll have to deal with jet lag, which is never fun, but not something that you can avoid. When you’re trying to get some sleep in the middle of the day, make sure that you have Lavender on hand to help promote deeper and better quality sleep.

You can use our Lavender-Infused Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist as a pillow spray so you’re breathing in the benefits while you snooze. You could also spritz it into a steaming hot shower to relax you as well.

All of these essential oils make it easy to have the best time while you’re traveling. Will you be bringing any of these on your next trip? Let us know in the comments!
