DIY Holiday Spa Experience

Image
By the time Christmas comes around after the rest of the holiday festivities each year, my nervous system is taxed. Between shopping, cooking, family events, travel, and the general stress of the season, I’m in need of a spa day. Massage, facial, body scrub, pedicure, manicure…I’d love it all. While I would love to receive a spa day as a gift, it rarely makes my final list for Santa. Why? Because I can so easily make my own spa experience at home with bath and body products, candles , and fragrance products from The Gift of Scent! Here’s how to give yourself the full spa experience from the comfort of your home! Pamper Your Tired Feet The first thing I do to start my spa day is to pull out my warming foot bath. I fill it with water, add ¼ cup of Epsom Salts, 3-4 drops of Belle Aroma® Pure Lavender Essential Oil , and a few tablespoons of coconut oil to the hot water. I also put on my Grapemist Cuddle Spa Neck Pillow after heating it in the microwave f

Stay Well This Season with Essential Oils

View more It’s the most wonderful time of the year…and it’s also the time when many of us get sick. Not so wonderful. While many of us love this season, we also have to recognize how much higher our stress levels are during this time of year. And if we’re being totally honest, our self-care routines tend to go by the wayside during the holiday season because many of us simply don’t make the time. So what do we get when we’re overstressed, over worked, spending more time around people we don’t generally spend time around, and eliminate our self-care routines? Illness. I think it’s high time we change the pattern. Read on for my tips for staying well this season using aromatherapy techniques: View more Make (and keep) time for self-care with aromatherapy for pampering and relaxation One of the easiest ways to help your body function properly during this hectic season is to use aromatherapy to boost your self-care practices.

Happy Halloween! Our Favorite Orange & Black Products

Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope you’ve got costume parties and trick-or-treating, haunted houses and Halloween movie marathons planned for the next few days. I’m all about color-coordinating my home décor for the season or holiday. I already have my orange twinkle lights and pumpkins all around my home. I prefer cute Halloween décor that can double for fall decorations rather than spooky stuff. My plan for Halloween is to turn on The Addams Family (the 1991 version!), eat my favorite chili with orange bell peppers and pumpkin bread (because my color coordination extends to my food), and maybe even dress up my orange dog (she’s a Vizsla) in a pumpkin costume. In honor of Halloween—and in the interest of helping everyone color coordinate for the season—I thought I’d share a list of my favorite Orange & Black Fragrance Products from The Gift of Scent! Use these products to complete your Halloween decorations, and enjoy the fall fragrances that will help put you i
