Time To Relax With Essential Oils

I don't know about the rest of you, but it was a l...o...n...g week in my kindergarten class. I think my little people have spring fever and it has shown in everything that we tried to do this week. I hate to admit it but I was ever so thankful when 4:00 Friday came around. Now I am sitting at home reflecting on how the week went, what I could have done to make it better, and what I am going to do next week so that we have a better outcome. Last night however, it was time to relax. What do you do to ease the tension of the previous week? One thing that I have come to enjoy is using essential oils and a diffuser. I ordered my diffuser on Amazon but since have seen several different types that I like a little better. Here are a few of them:   You can click on the pictures for more information on each.


  

 I was hesitant to try essential oils at first because I have asthma, however the oils seem to actually be helping me and inhaling the aroma from the oils is so calming and relaxing. I have found a few great "recipes" on Pinterest for relaxation and I thought that I would share them.



This one uses grapefruit, orange, lemon, and bergamot.  You can click on the links to get these awesome essential oils!  


This one looks awesome, and you could enjoy a refreshing mojito drink to go along with it!  This blend uses lime, grapefruit, tangerine, and spearmint.  

If you have not tried essential oils, I would suggest giving them a try.  They have many health benefits, are natural, and they create an enjoyable experience!
