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.

It’s becoming common knowledge that using a sauna or steam room on a regular basis is a benefit to your immune system, quality of health, and life. The many benefits range from relaxation and anti-aging to pain management, weight loss, and cleansing. If you are looking for new ways to look and be healthier, adding sauna treatments to your health routine at home is a great way to start.
At EuroSpa, we specialize in supporting the immune system and total body health with the use of Eucalyptus oils and Menthol crystals. It’s easy to add these powerful agents to your natural health routine.
Make the most of your sauna experience with these benefits
Heat has an analgesic, or pain relieving, effect due to its ability to create more effective blood flow. Painful conditions caused by inflammation such as arthritis and fibromyalgia can be temporarily managed through heat treatments like those found in both saunas and steam rooms. Massaging essential oils, such as peppermint, eucalyptus, rosemary or even wintergreen, in small amounts and diluted with coconut oil, on to the muscles before and after entering the heat will further your results even more. For managing pain, saunas may be preferable for people who are negatively affected by humidity as are some sufferers of acute rheumatoid arthritis.
Due to the increased circulation of the blood, the contraction and detoxification of the pores, and the activation of collagen and elastin, saunas are great for restoring a youthful glow to the skin. You will love the way your skin regains that rosy hue and hydrated glow.
One health advantage that can only be provided through the heat of saunas is the expectorant effect, when adding a Menthol-Infused Eucalyptus Oil to the mix, such as eucalyptus oil. These oils thin and open the mucous membranes in your body, including in your sinuses, throat and lungs. If you suffer chronic congestion or sinus infections, using Eucalyptus, peppermint and rosemary, can help loosen and clear the mucous from your nose, chest and throat.
Mind and Body Relaxation
We lead stressful lives, so the emotional and physical relaxation that stems from sauna use is irreplaceable, providing a calmer response in your mind and body when dealing with everyday stress. Both wet and dry heat simulate sedative effects that generate feelings of calmness and relaxation, and some people who suffer emotional or mood disorder may find relief with regular trips to saunas or even steam rooms.
To increase the above benefits, add menthol crystals or eucalyptus.
Just sprinkle a very small amount on your carpet or add to your oil on a burner or warmer. Always start with less than you think you’ll need. It doesn’t take much to infuse the entire room or sauna with the uplifting scent of menthol. You can also melt the crystals into a mineral oil to use as a bath salt. Or allow the oil to cool and apply as a paste for sore muscles. When you use menthol crystals, you should start with just 1/4 teaspoon or even a single medium-sized crystal. It’s better to use too little than too much.
This one is so simple, you can even use it in the shower. Just turn on the water and let it get hot before stepping in. Now spray a few shots of 100% pure Eucalyptus oil right into the steam. For the sauna, simply spray 2 or 3 sprays into the air or onto the rocks, and enjoy. The result is an explosion of invigoration that permeates the shower area and instantly energizes and relaxes your whole body. Breathe the powerful aroma into your lungs and feel it go to work cleaning and providing antibacterial action into your entire respiratory system.
So next time you go to the spa or sauna, bring some goodies with you that will make your experience truly excellent.

How Saunas and Steam Rooms Support Health and Relaxation
Saunas can be used as a means of calming the body and relieving stress. If you suffer from insomnia (one in three people have a mild case), they can also help induce sleep.
The heat from the sauna helps the body release endorphins, a feel-good chemical that reduces the effects of stress on the body which can relax you enough to sleep better. The sauna heats up your body, so when you leave and begin to cool down, your body releases increased levels of melatonin. Melatonin relaxes you and promotes deeper sleep.
The heat from a sauna soothes your nerve endings, warming and relaxing muscles. This relieves tension from your body and minimizes joint pain. Those suffering from illnesses such as arthritis, painful migraines, and headaches will especially find saunas beneficial.
Steam rooms have similar benefits to saunas, but they work with added moisture in the air. Steam opens up your airways, improving your breathing and alleviating congestion. The wet heat thins and opens the mucous membranes in the body, relieving sinus pressure. That makes steam rooms more beneficial for those with asthma and bronchitis.
Steam rooms also increase metabolism and aid in mild weight loss. Steam will produce sweat, which means your body is losing water weight. Since our bodies largely consist of water, sweating will cause you to lose a few pounds. The sweat also detoxifies and cleanses the body.
Both facilities open the pores, increasing blood and lymphatic circulation, softening your skin. After using either one, you should notice a healthy pink glow, making you look younger.
Steam rooms cleanse out any impurities from the skin which is especially good for those who have acne. Similarly, saunas eradicate blackheads to give you clearer skin.
In addition to the heat of steam rooms and saunas, there are options for enhancing your experience and adding health benefits to essential oils. Common ones are Lavender, Orange, and our favorite, Eucalyptus.
We offer a Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist that you can easily use both in the shower and spa alike. Eucalyptus is antimicrobial and is a powerful immune support, and cleanser of the sinus and bronchial passages. Great for migraines and stiff muscles. What’s not to love?

Saunas are known as fixtures in spas, gyms and even some homes. The benefits range from relaxation to weight loss and cleansing! If you are considering adding sauna treatments to your health or wellness routine at home, it’s important to know the benefits.
Here are some easy ways to boost the health benefits of your sauna time!

Saunas are said to provide a spectrum of emotional and physical relaxation benefits. Wet and dry heat simulate sedative effects that generate feelings of calmness and relaxation, and some people who suffer emotional or mood disorder may find relief with regular trips to saunas or even steam rooms. Along with a carrier oil, massage lavender, wild orange, ylang ylang or lemon myrtle along your chest, shoulders and back of the neck. This will boost relaxation and allowing the oils to work as a mood balancer with the heat for heightened relaxation.
The heat of saunas also promote muscle relaxation, which can provide pain relief from muscular injuries such as those from overuse or exercise. As you can see, the heat of saunas and steam rooms can have added benefits when putting different essential oils into the mix.
