Being around family isn’t easy. Some people love it, some people hate it and others just do it because they’re supposed to. If it’s a torture to you, we want to give you an idea for recovering from it that you’ll love. And if you’d like to enjoy it, we’ve got some tips to share there too.
Have a better holiday than the years before and come out feeling good about it. Here’s how:
Remember the truth: This time is temporary and this is your family. You didn’t choose them, but here they are. Love the good inside them and don’t waste your time arguing. You’re not likely to change anyone’s opinions so don’t bother. If they need to think or act differently that’s their own growth to go through. They’ll grow much faster if you sit back and love them.
Simple Conversation: Avoid talking about major issues, family grudges, politics and personal choices. Talk about simple things like music, the books you’re reading, family vacations or the latest movies. And if the complex topics arise, refer to the last point. Don’t waste your time trying to prove something to anyone. It’s always a dead end or painful experience.
Find Kindness: Look for ways to be kind. Compliment people. Listen carefully and attentively to the other person. (If you’re not bothering to argue or convince them of anything, this should be easy to do, and good practice for your communication skills!) Take it further and look for opportunities to tell people why you appreciate them and what you admire about them. This is sure to up-level the mood in the air.
Recover: It’s no easy task handling family. When you’re done, you want to go home, fall on the couch and put your feet up. So do it. But upgrade the experience. All that effort and conversation (and avoiding arguments) can make you tense and tired. So make sure you have a couple bottles of our Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist, because this will calm your muscles, nerves and mood down so fast. Run a hot shower and spritz a couple sprays into the steam. Get in and just stand there. Breathe. Aromatherapy at this level will work wonders for you. And when you’re done – relax. Put on a movie, read a book or go to bed. You’ve done well.
The holidays are a perfect time for us to be better people. It’s not easy and definitely takes practice, but you can do it. And when you’re done exercising this muscle, you get sweet relief.
From all of us at Eurospa Aromatics, have a beautiful holiday.

How to Make the Perfect Homemade Spa Gift Basket
- Grab a medium sized basket or box. Choose natural wood or soothing colors. This is where you’ll stash everything.
- Make sure you have things to fill the box with like strips of newspaper, cotton balls, or even cloth.
- Fill the basket with items perfect for inducing relaxation and the spa experience. Some ideas include an eye mask, a facial scrub or liquid mask, some lavender oil, candles, massage lotion, a massage voucher, and finally, no basket is complete without some Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist. The spray can be used in any hot shower or bath to bring extra rejuvenation and immune boosting.
- Create little note cards with instructions and the reason for each item included.
- Top it all with a bow.
You’re ready to present your gift! Whether or not you wrap it completely is up to you. But we assure you, this is a crowd-pleasing gift for any age.

Have you noticed the holiday shopping season has begun? It’s hard to miss with all the Christmas music and trimmings. And whether you are an early bird or last-minute deal finder, you’ll likely agree that Dad is always the hardest to shop for and he’s often saved for last. Since you know he’s likely got enough ties, colognes, and gift cards, how about giving him a gift that will help him feel, look, and live younger?
The Perfect Gift for Dad
We have created our Eucalyptus ShowerMist for anyone that wants to feel and be healthier—and we’ve noticed that men rave about it. It’s a way to stay healthy that they don’t have to eat, won’t smell like flowers, and keeps their mind and body energized. Some ailments that it commonly relieves are arthritis, muscle pain, respiratory difficulties, and hair and skin issues.
How do you use it?
The best way to reap the benefits is through steam inhalation.
Eucalyptus steam inhalation is recommended by some alternative practitioners for relieving nasal congestion and sinus congestion, usually from colds and flu. It can be done two to four times a day to relieve symptoms. If you’re not able to do this, a steamy shower, vaporizer, or facial sauna are other options.
This is why we developed Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist. You simply run the hot water in your shower, close the door for full effect, and spray the mist once or twice into the steam. Breathe in deeply and let it work.
He’ll be amazed at how refreshed and energized his body will feel.
We are proud to offer the gift of health to you this holiday season and to save you the stress of deciding what to get Dad for Christmas!
