We spend our whole lives dashing from one task to the next, dealing with an ever-growing list of demands; wash the car, feed the kids, deliver that big project at work, clean the house, keep fit and look good doing it! If this sounds familiar, stop, breathe, relax…and read on.
We don’t leave our phones on 10% battery day-in, day-out, or drive our cars on an empty tank, so why do so many of us do this to ourselves? As modern life becomes increasingly hectic it is more important than ever to take some time out each day to rest and recharge. We don’t all have the time to meditate or the money for expensive spa retreats but what if we told you that you can conjure up your own tranquil retreat wherever life takes you with just a madebyzen® aroma diffuser and a few drops of your favourite essential oils? Picture the warm, calming, glow of light, feel the fresh, cooling mist and breathe in the delightful and delicate scents of essential oils in the perfect blend of soothing sensations: allow yourself to be transported to a world of peace and serenity.
We know that just a few minutes of calm each day can leave you fresh and revitalised, boosting your performance so you’re ready to tackle anything that comes your way. But what are the best essential oil blends to help you rest and recharge?
Most of us are familiar with lavender oil and its properties. Lavender soothes away anxiety, could help us sleep and of course, smells fantastic. Blended with floral and exotic ylang-ylang, jasmine and rosewood, our Unwind essential oil blend is the perfect fragrant, floral fusion of relaxation and calm, making it ideal for pampering and unwinding.
The scent of sandalwood is often overlooked but it has a strong, beautifully rich and woody, botanical scent. Blended with jasmine, tangerine, and vanilla, sandalwood lends a rich undertone to Revitalise, a bright and uplifting blend that can heighten the mood and promote feelings of hope whilst counteracting negative emotions.
Sandalwood fragrance is also a vital ingredient in the Sleep essential oil blend, along with lavender, mandarin, patchouli, a depression relieving oil with a spicy, woody scent, and sage. A good night’s sleep is the key to a productive and happy day and the Sleep essential oil blend is the perfect scent bouquet to help you drift into a peaceful and refreshing slumber.
When it comes to rest and relaxation, make essential oils work for you. Whatever your day holds, be it work or pleasure, be sure to include some all-important rest and relaxation so that you can stay fresh and fully charged to face life at your best.
