Disclosure: I did receive free products from Aura Cacia to facilitate this review, but the wit and genius are 100% my own.
Party planning season is right around the corner. It’s time for weddings, graduations, and of course summer parties! Parties can be a great way to spend time with your family and friends, but if you are the one doing all the planning it can be really stressful. Honestly for me that’s why Mr. Crunchy and I usually keep our parties pretty small and intimate.
When I get really stressed out, like gonna pull my hair out stressed out, I pull a few tools from my stress relief tool box. One of those tools is my essential oil collection from Aura Cacia. I say collection because I have been using their essential oils for years. A friend of mine back in California was an herbologist and got me started using essential oils to improve my life.
Since I tend to be a bit of a stress bucket, I try to keep things in the house that are soothing. When I am in my office working or planning my next party, I get out my favorite Aura Cacia blend to relax me a bit. (Trust me it works) One of my favorite things to do for stress relief are these tips:
- Add 3 drops of ylang ylang to sweet almond oil to create a natural perfume.
- Place 1-2 drops of ylang ylang on pillow at night for sweet dreaming.
- Add 7-10 drops of ylang ylang to tub for a relaxing, sensual bath experience.
- Combine 2 drops ylang ylang and 4 drops bergamot per ounce of water for an uplifting mood mister.
Aura Cacia has added some pretty awesomesauce new products to their line throughout the year. One of my favorites is the new aromatherapy room diffuser. They have these great reusable pads that you can put drops of your favorite essential oil on and let them waft through your room. Mine is in my office. It’s a great blend of lavendar and ylang ylang to calm my stress ball butt down.
