The holidays are winding down but our minds and bodies may still be in high gear so we may need to take it down a notch or two. I have a hard time relaxing after a hectic few weeks and have looked into some holistic approaches.
Aromatherapy is using essential oils from plants that can have therapeutic benefits for the whole person; mind, body and spirit. Deserving Thyme offers us pure, spa quality aromatherapeutic body and bath products and I got to try several of them out.
A little rest and relaxation after several weeks of racing around is exactly what I want to embrace right now. Getting up very early and staying up super late has affected my sleep pattern so I tried the Rest Assured Pillow Spray. It’s water based and infused with pure lavender essential oil. You spray it on your towels after showering or on your pillows just before retiring and it will gently help you drift off into dreamland. Lavender is recognized for its soothing effect on the spirit and calming effects on the nerves. I really enjoy using this product and it worked so well. I even used it as a perfume; its scent is so delicate and fragrant.
Another awesome relaxing product is the Wellness Roll on Rest. This clever roll-on has a combination of harmoniously blended organic essential oils, jojoba, lavender and chamomile. The roller applicator glides smoothly over skin leaving a trail of restoring oils that quickly absorb into your skin. It’s suggested to use this product on your temples, under the nose and pulse points. I liked wearing it on my wrists and under my nose. It’s such a restful scent that puts you on pause for as long as you need. A few whiffs and sniffs of this products and I feel more composed and reposed. I adore this product.
If you love long soothing baths then I would highly recommend the Rest Essential Oil Blend. This is an incredibly versatile product and I’ve used in umpteen places. A few drops in your bath water will create a tranquil experience and calm your senses. Total bliss! You can also add a few drops to a diffuser. If you don’t have a diffuser like me, just add a few drops to a cup of water and put it on a candle/mug warmer. It works wonderfully and the pleasant scent floats quietly throughout the house. The whole house seems to hush.
I really love the Christmas Blend, it has cloves, tangerine, peppermint and pine. It reflects all that is comforting and festive and I’ve used it nearly every day. Deserving Thyme carries more than relaxing oils, they offer a plethora of essential oils with specific purposes, so check them out. Find a product that resonates with you and bring on the calm.
