Diffusing Oils for Self Care, More Energy and Better Health

Self care february (10)

Today I started our morning out by diffusing Orange and Peppermint essential oils.  After a week of flu, migraine, doctor’s appointments and snow storms, we started our morning by diffusing some oils.

My personal favorite oils, these days, is Aromafloria!  I’ve talked about my love for Aromafloria unscented products before and now I have been given oils to mix.  I am an affiliate* for Aromafloria which means that if you love unscented products and choosing your own essential oils and decide to buy, I will be rewarded for my recommendation.  I hope you love it as much as I do!  I only recommend products I use and today I needed them.  This month I will describe how I use the oils and unscented mixology line in a variety of ways in my self care routine.

This morning I used orange because it is uplifting to the mind and emotions.  After cleaning the house of all the germs, the orange is energizing yet dissipates the smell of any harsh chemicals I used to clean the day before.  I typically don’t like to use strong smelling cleaners, but when the flu hits, I use bleach!  I also used peppermint oil to diffuse because it is known to help clear congestion, reduce fever and is good for the nerves and stomach.

Aromafloria, helping me relax with essential oil bath products

I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. This post contains affiliate links

Aromafloria delivers finely crafted, artisanal quality body care and aromatherapy products.  I was approached by Aromafloria to review their Muscle Soak collection.  This collection restores vitality with essential oils of eucalyptus, peppermint, and lemongrass. These nourishing formulas soothe sore muscles, ease tension and leave you feeling energized.  Knowing that I like eucalyptus and peppermint already, I knew this was the line for me.

This summer I have decided to cut down on my workouts and focus more on relaxation and taking care of my skin.  These products allowed me to do so.  Here is a breakdown of all the products I tried:

Aromafloria

Muscle Soak- Ocean Mineral Bath Salts

Restore a sense of well-being to ease sore muscles with an aromatic steaming bath infused with healing essential oils and muscle relaxing sea salts.

The bath salts were a real treat to me.  I never take the time to take a bath and reviewing these forced me to relax.  I found that that the salts dissolved easily and had a light pleasant aroma.  I have used over powering products in the bath before and this one is subtle and not too strong to soak in for a lengthy bath.

Muscle Soak- Foaming Bubble Bath

The Muscle Soak Bubble Bath’s essential oils of Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Lemongrass are fresh, cooling and invigorating.

My children helped me review the bubble bath.  They love bubble bath and were thrilled with  the lush foamy and pleasant smell.  I felt good about allowing them to use the eucalyptus bubble bath when my son has sensitive skin and sinus issues.  His skin was soothed and breathing was clear after soaking and playing in the bubble bath.

Muscle Soak- Sugar Salt Glow Body Scrub

Cleanse away fatigue and invigorate the body and soul with refreshing cool herbs and aromas to leave your skin softly polished and younger feeling.

This was my favorite!  I love scrubs and this one was great!  Once again, it was a lovely light aroma.  I enjoyed the fine scrub and how it was not messy.  It stuck to my skin and allowed me to exfoliate without splashing it all over the shower or it chunking up and falling to the drain.  It left my skin smooth and slightly moisturized and not dry.  It is so gentle I used it daily and concentrated on areas of bumps or imperfections on my skin.  The only problem is how quickly I have been using it!

Muscle Soak- Bath & Body Massage Oil

Relieve tired muscles from aches and pains with an icy hot massage with Muscle Soak Bath & Body Massage Oil.

This one I used on my husband.  He is at a desk job all day and gets a lot of back and shoulder pain.  I treated him with the body oil and a massage and he now requests it often.

Sinus Help- Inhalation Beads

The decongestant and cooling properties of essential oils have been shown to help clear stuffy nose and enhance breathing.

These came very in handy!  After receiving all of the Aromafloria products, I went into a migraine cycle followed by a sinus infection and pink eye.  The pressure in my face was extreme.  I helped treat myself with baths (and salts) along with breathing the inhalation beads.  The sinus beads are pretty strong.  The first time I breathed deeply with them my eyes watered from the essential oils.  I brought the beads with me when we were outside to help clear my sinuses and allow me have some relief as the allergies grew.

Sleep Ease- Inhalation Beads

The restorative properties of essential oils have been known to help quiet the mind and calm the body for healthy, natural sleep.

These beads are not as strong as the sinus beads.  They are pleasant and relaxing.  I plan on adding these to my travel bag.  The smells of airplanes and the people surrounding me often trigger migraines.  I also will use them before bed in the dry air conditioned hotel.  They are relaxing and help calm my migraine brain before bed.

Overall, I loved trying all of the Aromafloria products.  Being under the weather and pampering myself with these soothing products allowed me to feel more energized and vibrant.  As a busy mom, quality bath products are like an escape to the spa in the comforts of my home.
