Brain Fog? Start at Night With Lavender

Mental fatigue or “brain fog” generally stems from physical fatigue or inadequate sleep. So the remedy begins with at night. Using Lavender before bed (along with helpful sleep habits) can improve sleep quality and duration, allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed. Lavender is a soothing scent, known for its calming properties. The sweet, floral aroma will reduce stress and help quiet a racing mind. 

The calming effects of a Yoga ritual before bed can be life-changing, especially when combined with our Lavender-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil Yoga Mat Cleaner. Simply spray on your mat (and wipe clean) before and after practice to enjoy the aromatic benefits during your practice.

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!

That’s all great, but how do we use it? Glad you asked! Many people use add the oil to baths, spas and saunas because of its refreshing and antiseptic attributes.

5 Ways to Beat Midday Fatigue Fast and Naturally

Nothing’s worse than mental fog and fatigue, but we all seem to battle it. And if you reach for a coffee or soda, you’re only going to make it worse. The sugar and caffeine will help momentarily but keep the fatigue showing up for days, months, and even years to come as they burn out your adrenals.

So what can you do? Here are some natural ways to beat afternoon tiredness, without the side effects.

5 Ways to Overcome Midday Fatigue

Oxygen to the brain

Find a quiet place in your home or workplace that’s free from distraction, but not your bed. Turn on some relaxing music, read, or just sit in the stillness. Take one, then two, then ten deep breaths. This is your opportunity to oxygenate your blood cells and brain for better functioning plus increased energy!

Change it up

Sometimes doing the same repetitious actions make us tired. So change it up. Take a break to move your body, read a book, listen to music, and just live a little. What are the hobbies that make you come alive? How can you incorporate those things into those more sluggish hours?

Get Active

If you can go for a run or stop by the gym first thing in the morning, great! If not, make a plan to implement a small routine into your morning, so you at least set a pattern and habit to care for your mind and body. This will not only set up your day with energy but also affect the rest of your life.

Take an energy shower

Turn up the heat and let your muscles both relax and rejuvenate. Add menthol crystals to the shower steam as well to awaken your senses. Menthol crystals open up your bronchial passageways, allowing you to breathe deeper and get more oxygen to your brain. More oxygen to the brain means more clarity and mental peace. These crystals will add a great vibrancy to your day.

Fuel your body

Take time to eat a balanced meal. Give your body the fuel it needs and remember to drink plenty of water. Chinese medicine states that the morning meal is the fuel your body pulls from most, so be sure to get preventative and eat well at the start of the day.

Beat the afternoon dullness and reenergize your life. You don’t have to be tired anymore. Achieve a life of vitality and vigor.

So we want to share with you some simple and natural tips to wake up not only your eyes but your whole self so you can conquer your day with energy and eyes wide open.

5 Tips to Feel More Awake in the Morning

Cold water. Immediately cleanse your face upon waking. Let the cold begin. Splash your face with as cold of water you can handle, 10 – 20 times. If you’re feeling super brave, lay with an ice pack on your eyes for 5 minutes.

Take a shower. Not just any shower, take a Eucalyptus shower. Run some hot water and spray our Menthol-Infused Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist into the steam. Breathe deep and let the menthol and Eucalyptus penetrate your lungs and skin cells for total body rejuvenation.

Caffeine. Brew up some green or black tea using 2 bags total. Once it has steeped, set aside the bags on a dish, and drink the tea. But also, you can grab those tea bags, lay down, and place them on your eyes for about 10 minutes. You’ll see some great tightening and brightening.

Lemon water. Nothing is better than drinking hot, warm, or cold lemon water in the morning. Simply slice and squeeze the lemon, add water and enjoy. This will detox your endocrine and lymphatic system for an awakening from the inside out.

Eye drops. A perfect finishing touch includes lubricating and redness-reducing eye drops. You’ll feel more wide-eyed and less bloodshot within minutes.

Enjoy these tips and go about your day without feeling tired. Live life with no more bags under your eyes or droopy eyelids today!
