Even if you love the holiday season and look forward to it every year, I think we can both agree that added stress is a part of the package.
Perhaps the pressure is travel-related, relative-related, schedule-related, or something else among a long list of common stressors.
Whatever it is that is stressing you out -- essential oils could be the most pleasant answer to helping you handle the holiday stress this year and beyond.
While I don't pretend to be an expert on Essential Oils, I have learned about them through others that are well versed in this area. If you would like some great in depth help, contact me and I can direct you to those that specialize in these great little helpers!
Here are a few of my favorite uplifting aromas to relieve stress quickly.
Essential oils for traveling
Are you driving for hours in a car full of kids? Do you have plans to fly across the country? There's an essential oil for that to keep you calm and anxiety-free. Lavender is a well known calming essential oil, though if you combine it with earthy vetiver, you'll be on track for soothing your fears and apprehensions.
Essential oils for arrival
So now you're there, and you're feeling that unease of where to go next. Maybe you're trying to find your luggage. Perhaps you're trying to find a cab. Whatever the case, try using something woodsy, as this will help keep you more grounded. Think spruce, cedarwood, or one of my favorites, frankincense. Put a few drops in the palm of your hand and rub your hands together. The heat from your body will keep releasing the scent, which will keep you feeling more at home even when you're miles and miles away from it. I also like to dab a little under my nose for a peaceful, calm feeling.
Essential oils for winter skin
Holiday stress, traveling or not, can make an impact on winter skin. And let's say it's likely not the impact you're looking for when you're gearing up to take loads of happy family photos. Lavender is great for winter skin woes since it soothes it so well. You don't need a carrier oil to apply it to your skin, either. It has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antibiotic properties, which can help relieve dry, winter-worn skin.
Essential oils for family stress
No matter how much you love your family, there's bound to be some stress surrounding it. Even if spirits are high and everyone's happy to be seeing each other this year, there's always a chance for something to go awry. Being prepared for this is simple, and this is where bergamot comes in for a calming yet energetic feeling to refresh your spirit.
Essential oils for after meals
If you're eating more decadent meals than you're typically used to throughout the holidays, utilizing some citrus, ginger, or peppermint essential oils can help you digest and feel less sluggish after eating. These are all known indigestion relievers, try it and see!
Carry essential oils in your bag to help you feel at peace during the holidays, and you'll be better able to enjoy the moment!
Not all essential oils are created equal, though. It's important to pick the highest-quality, naturally sourced essential oils you can find. There are also MANY ways to utilize these essential oils such as adding them to your water or dabbing them on your tongue. As I mentioned previously, if you need help or guidance on where to go next or what brand works best for you, contact me and I can send you to specialists in this area.
I honestly mostly use them use in my diffuser for peace and calm. Having wonderful scents in your home, especially this time of year is amazingly calming and soul soothing!
