I think there comes a time in every mom’s life where we need to seek help with creating a calm environment, a calm mood, a calm setting, calm, calm, calm. I have been hearing all the rave reviews about how helpful people are finding essential oils. I decided it was time to test this out myself.
After careful research I decided the best product to try was the NATURE’S BOUNTY® EARTHLY ELEMENTS™ Aromatherapy Diffuser and figured I would test out all of the various oils they offer. Just like a walk in the woods or a stroll through a field of flowers, essential oils in the home can help set moods and create sensual experiences, from calming to invigorating depending on the scent. Count me in!
With a selection like this who could pick just one?! Definitely not me and I am super excited to try them all. Each essential oil has its own unique aroma and “personality,” just like people. I loved the easy availability of the Nature’s Bounty® Earthly Elements™, as a loyal shopper at Walmart, I was not surprised to find out they the full line can be found in the vitamin aisle.
Shopping online? Here is a list and link to all of the products pictured above. First you want to start with the Diffuser, thinking about creating a massage oil (YES!) than you want to get the Almond Skin Care Oil, and now for all the various fragrances …. Lavender, Lemongrass, Grapefruit, Jasmine, Rosemary, Patchouli, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, & Chamomile.
I am literally in fragrance heaven and my mind is flooded with ideas. Such as making an aromatherapy face mask, aromatherapy candles, and or stimulating sugar face scrubs. The possibilities are endless! But for my first real test, I really want to use my diffuser to help calm my mind at night and ease me into a wonderful sleep.
After just having surgery and a pretty difficult recover I really needed a good nights rest. I set up my diffuser and decided on using Chamomile since its calming, nurturing, and soothing. Three things I am very much in need of.
I made sure I had my diffuser set up early in the day so this way, when I got into bed, all I needed to do was just turn it on. When I got into bed I had a pretty tough day so I was really putting this Chamomile to the true test. After turning on my diffuser and starting to breath in the sweet, tangy, delicious scent of the Chamomile, I literally felt a complete calmness over my whole body. It was undeniable and before I knew it I was in a deep sleep.
Experiment one was a huge success!! Keep an eye out for another super amazing essential oil fun idea, I have in the works, that will be featured soon!
