6 Ways You Can Improve Your Mental Health Right Now

6 Ways You Can Improve Your Mental Health Right Now

Mental Health can be such a buzz word these days. Most of what we see on the news, is about someone whose mental health is impaired to the point that something has gone wrong. But we as a society don’t focus enough on our day to day mental health. Because of the news media, it can be seen as a stigma to admit that you are not having the best of mental health days. As May is Mental Health and Awareness Month, here are some facts and tips to help you improve your daily mental health.

 

Life is stressful! From traffic, to work, to family, there are so many factors that can cause your stress levels to rise. That’s why we as a company feel that even five minutes out of the day to take a breath can leave you ready and willing to face life’s little challenges.

 

Eucalyptus has been a favorite of aromatherapy users for centuries. Who can’t remember that first time when you stepped into a steam room and took a deep breath of that invigorating Eucalyptus aroma! So why limit yourself to a spa or gym? Now you can take that five minutes in the privacy of your own home! Because of its cooling and refreshing effect, Eucalyptus can help remove your exhaustion and mental sluggishness!

 

And now we offer Eucalyptus infused with a variety of things that can also be used to aid your daily mental well-being.

 

Lavender is a common aromatherapy scent that you see everywhere. It can help calm your anxiety and emotional stress so that you can rest and get a good’s night sleep for the next day. Just a few sprays in your shower or on your pillow can help keep you relaxed and ready for the next challenge.

 

Citrus oil isn’t something that most people think of as an aromatherapy benefit. We all know how great it is for your physical health, but its mental health benefits are just as powerful. It has such a clean and uplifting aroma that helps stimulate your mental focus and clarity while also helping you release your fear and stress.

 

Mint is such a powerful scent that it has been used for many uses over the years. It can help perk you up rather than reaching for that energy drink. But my favorite use? It can help get rid of that 2 P.M. tension headache! Mint has the ability to help improve your circulation and relax those tense muscles. Spraying just a little in your hands and inhaling can hopefully help stave off that headache before it can become worse.

 

And finally, we come to what we all think of as a stress relief: YOGA! By helping release tension and stress, yoga poses and exercises help keep you free and ready to face your day. It can also be used to help lower your blood pressure and heart rate which just might help resolve anxiety and depression naturally.  That’s why we created our Lavender-Infused Eucalyptus Yoga Mat Cleaner so that the relaxation you get from your session, doesn’t get ruined by harsh smells as you clean your mat and go about your day.

 

So remember, take that time, even if it’s just five minutes out of a day, for yourself this month! Breath deep, close your eyes and relax. Because it’s May and time for summer!

How to Use Eucalyptus Oil for Better Health and A Stronger Immune System

How to Use Eucalyptus Oil for Better Health and A Stronger Immune System

As cold season continues, it’s even more important to take care of our health and immune system. We hate being laid out, missing school and work and we aren’t alone. But lucky for all of us, there is a power plant that helps keep us strong, protected and cleansed to beat the colds that come our way; eucalyptus. And we want to show you some of the best ways to use it for the better health, a boosted immune system and so much more!

Colds & Flu
Eucalyptus works as an expectorant and helps to cleanse your body of toxins and harmful microorganisms that can make you feel sick. One of the most effective ways to utilize eucalyptus for colds is add several pumps of eucalyptus oil spray into your diffuser before going to sleep so you can take advantage of the healing benefits all night long.

For more acute situations, you can make an at-home steam bath by pouring a cup of boiling water into a bowl, and then spraying 2 sprays of 100% Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist, place a towel over your head and inhale deeply for five–10 minutes.

Odor Remover
Whether you’re battling smelly shoes or a stinky dog bed, topically wash items to remove odors with a wet rag, spray on the area with eucalyptus mist and then place outside to dry in the sun. This will prevent odors as well as kill the bacteria and keep it from spreading.

Air Cleanser
Try spraying eucalyptus into your vacuum and clothes dryer filters to freshen them up and sanitize them a little. Also, it’s great for killing mold in your home, and you can mix eucalyptus with other oils like clove and tea tree oil to cleanse the air and maintain a mold-free home.

Respiratory Problems
Eucalyptus essential oil is highly effective for treating respiratory problems, such as asthma, bronchitis, COPD, pneumonia and even tuberculosis. Using eucalyptus for asthma is a proven treatment that dilates the blood vessels and allows more oxygen into the lungs. Simply spray into the shower steam or bath area for a steam version of the ever popular vapor rub remedy!

Hair Nourishment
A few sprays of eucalyptus oil mist into some coconut or olive oil and then massaged in gives your hair a nice moisturizing pick-me-up. This is especially great to ward off dandruff and an itchy scalp. Also, eucalyptus is used as a natural remedy for lice in replacement of chemical treatments.

As you can see, eucalyptus has super strengths that go above and beyond when it comes to the support and nourishment of the body’s systems.
