It has been said that our sense of smell is one of the strongest sense we have. It can affect our other senses. And this Sunday we're going to use it to alter our mood to create a more relaxing environment.
This is hands down the easiest DIY in history of the world. The materials include, a spray bottle, water and lavender essential oil(the essential oil will depend on the mood). Combine the water and essential oil in spray bottle and TADA!!! You're done!!! For a calming air freshener, use essential oils such as sage, rosemary, eucalyptus or bergamot. To uplift i lIke to use orange, grapefruit, lemon, or lemongrass essential oil. The best part about this is you don't have to pick just one oil, you can mix and add oils as you please.
You can use these air freshener whenever you need. I like to use an uplifting spray in the morning as soon as I get out of bed to help boost my energy. I use the calming spray at night as I begin to prepare for bed.
Don't forget to share your diy air freshener.
Have you ever felt like Whitley Gilbert? No, not the Whitley 'high and might, my ish don't stink' Gilbert. But Whitley that was confused with what she thought she wanted and what she had. Thats me, most days of the week. And with external factors, it makes it hard to focus on self. In this day and age people are constantly connected at all times, through phones, computers, and even watches. This can be a both a blessing and a curse. The current technology allows me to stay in touch with my sister in Japan on a weekly basis. But this technology also keeps me up at night, constantly scrolling through some app taking in everyone else's energy. We can get so weighed down by the world that we often times forget to focus on ourselves.
To help solve her problem, Whitley visited a therapist that gave her words that Steph and I live by. Relax, Relate, Release. Beginning October 16th, Relax, Relate, Release will be a series of blog post that take focus away from the world and turns it inwards.No these won't give you all the answers you've been looking for. But they will share easy ways to pamper yourself, unwind, and create a drama-free zone.
