Lavender is quite possibly the most well-known and popular essential oil in the world. It’s great for reducing pain and inflammation, an excellent addition to any skin-care routine, and is one of the most relaxing oils used in aromatherapy.
Today we’re going to show you how to sleep better by using this amazing oil, which can be found in our Lavender-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist!
Wind down for the evening with meditation
Pair deep breathing meditation exercises with gentle yoga poses to help calm your mind after a long day. Use a foam roller to stretch sore muscles. When you’re finished, make sure to clean your yoga mat so it’s free of bacteria. Our Eucalyptus + Lavender Yoga Mat cleaner is perfect for this! See this blog post for our favorite meditation tips.
Turn your shower into a steamy sauna
There’s nothing better than taking a long, hot shower at the end of a stressful day! While the water gets warm and begins to steam up the bathroom, remove your makeup or wash your face. Then spritz some of our Lavender-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist into your shower, step in, and relax.
Hydrate and prepare for bed
For a spa-like experience, put on a fluffy robe after your shower and fill up a glass with some iced cucumber water.
Turn off your electronic devices and put them away. The blue light from our phones, TVs, and tablets can delay the release of melatonin (the chemical that helps make us tired) in our bodies. Make sure to power down your devices at least half an hour before bedtime.
Dim the lights, turn up the air (the suggested bedroom temperature should be between 60-67 degrees for optimal sleep) and choose some soft pajamas to sleep in.
Get sleepy and wind down slowly
Lightly spray your sheets and pillows with some of our Lavender-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist for a relaxing scent. Lavender’s unique, sedative properties will help you gradually get sleepier as you breathe deeply. Not ready to fall asleep just yet? Pull out that book you’ve been meaning to finish and read a chapter or two, write in a gratitude journal, or spend some time talking to your partner about your day.

Life is stressful and hectic, so when you come home, you expect to relax and be rejuvenated. Essential oils can help you do that; and the best way to use them is with a diffuser. Diffusers disperse the oils into the air, permeating the room and providing with you their benefits continuously. They’re the best way to help you live a better, healthier life.
So, here are nine perfect reasons you should have an essential oil diffuser:
9 Undeniable Reasons to Have an Essential Oil Diffuser
Sleep prepares you to tackle tomorrow, but you can’t do that if you don’t sleep well. So, run your diffuser throughout the night with essential oils such as lavender to help you fall and stay asleep. You’ll wake up feeling refreshed and ready for another day.
2. Freshen the Air
Essential oils are known for their potent, fresh aroma. Just choose the scent you want to fill the air. Diffusers are also healthier alternatives to name brand air fresheners, which fill your home with harmful chemicals. Instead, essential oils bring health benefits and provide long-lasting aromas. Two birds, one stone.
3. Stay Healthy
Keep your home healthy and happy by diffusing essential oils such as eucalyptus, peppermint, and citrus. These oils purify the air by eating up bacteria, protecting your home from illness, and boosting your immune system.
4. Safer than Candles
Candles can pose a fire hazard if left unattended. Prevent these types of disasters by using an essential oil diffuser instead. And besides being safer, essential oils don’t use chemicals like candles, leaving you with a healthier atmosphere.
5. Mood Enhancing
While essential oils and aromatherapy are known for their relaxing scents, there are also several oils that can be used to boost your mood. Oils like lavender and citrus oils can be diffused to energize a room and give it life, such as an office to help you work, or a weight room to get you ready for a big workout.
6. Mental Focus
If you want to be more productive, diffusing essential oils in the air can improve your cognitive function. In fact, using oils like eucalyptus and peppermint regularly can actually help heal causes of poor mental focus.
7. Prevent Snoring
Another reason to leave a diffuser on overnight is to help your significant other not wake you with their snoring. Eucalyptus oil clears passageways and improves breathing, which will prevent snoring and allow you to sleep better.
8. Allergy Relief
It seems that everyone has some kind of allergy these days. Allergies can cause watering eyes, scratchy throats, congestion, among other things. But diffusing essential oils such as eucalyptus and peppermint can relieve these symptoms with their potent aromas and ability to clear sinuses.
9. Relieves Stress
One of the greatest benefits of a diffuser is creating a stress-free home. Menthol and lavender are two of the best oils to help you relax and decompress after a long day. You can make any room your escape with these oils and a diffuser.

The winter holidays are known for bouts of binging on the treats we look forward to all year. And it’s no wonder either. But then there’s the guilt that follows – and you end up regretting everything you enjoyed so much.
So what do you do? Skip out on the fun and festivities? No way! However, if you really want to enjoy them – make sure you’re balancing out all that sugar with some healthier practices.
Drink a LOT of water. Water is cleansing and balancing. It helps to detox the extra sugar you’re consuming as well as dilute it so you don’t get that dreaded sugar hangover.
Eat twice as many greens. Similar to water, greens detoxify and balance out your body. They are packed with minerals which are the opposite of sugar. So eat plenty of them and even better – grab a high quality green powder supplement.
Drink less alcohol. Not saying you shouldn’t have a drink or two, but keep it at that. More than two drinks overwhelms your liver, dehydrates you and reduces your sleep quality.
Sleep. Don’t skimp on the rest. It’s when you sleep that your body has the chance to detoxify what it’s been given. So either go to bed at a decent time, or make sure you’re able to sleep in the next morning.
Detox Deeply. What goes in must come out. The best way to do this is through hydration and sweat. Water carries a ton of our toxins out of the body so make good use of it. Run a hot shower or sit in a sauna/steam room and breathe in the heat. For an even deeper detox, add a few sprays of our Eucalyptus Shower Mist into the steam and let it clean you out and relax you at the same time!
We want you to be healthy and also enjoy your life. There will always be many occasions in life that call for sweets and sugary delights. It’s just about finding balance. And then the benefits will come through for you!
