New Year, New Habits: 6 ways to improve your health and wellness for the New Year
Treat yourself more often
Soothing music, a warm bath, and the subtle aroma of essential oils can create the ultimate spa-like experience. Adding 6 drops of Bergamot or Lemongrass Oil to your bathwater can induce muscle relaxation as well as reduce anxiety and elevate your mood.
Good sleep is essential
We all know eating fresh citrus is good for our health but did you know sleeping with the scent of lemons is also beneficial? Wake up feeling refreshed and energized. A Lemon Essential Oil linen spray is perfect for freshening sheets to help ensure a better night's sleep. It's also perfect for freshening up your towels, bathrooms, and pretty much your entire home!
Unwind and stress less
Need a little R&R but vacation is not in your plans? Escape and de-stress right at home with the help of Lavender Oil. Lavender is prized for its calming effect on the body and mind. Beachwood's Cherry and Bamboo Diffuser allow you to enjoy the effects of a continuous aromatherapy mist that can transport your mind and senses.
Ease daily aches and pain
You probably think of rosemary mostly in terms of cooking, but the essential oil of this fragrant herb has been found to be one of the more widely used oils in aromatherapy when it comes to aches and pain. Combining Rosemary, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus Oil with a carrier oil or lotion to apply topically can help relieve muscle discomfort and reduce inflammation.
Improve focus and concentration
So many New Year's goals but having trouble staying on task? Diffusing, spraying, or inhaling pure essential oils can help with focus and concentration. Frankincense Oil is one of the best oils to use for focus and concentration. The warm spicy aroma stimulates the mind and helps give a boost of energy. Add 6 drops each of Frankincense and Ylang Ylang together for the best diffuser blend when you need to get things done.
