Happy National Relaxation Day and Giveaway!

August 15th is National Relaxation Day, so as a massage and aromatherapy practitioner this is a perfect opportunity to share some ideas for stress relief.
1. Get a massage!

  1. 3. Take a walk without the iPod....take time to listen to life happening all around you.
  2. 4. Put your hands in some soil or walk around barefoot on the grass to dispel electromagnetic charges and calm your nervous system.

5. Buy a friend some flowers and deliver them to their home or office to brighten their day.

6. Enter the Oils For Wellness Relaxation Giveaway!

Winner will receive a bottle of Young Living Relaxation™ Massage Oil
Relaxation Massage Oil can help create a state of relaxation and restore vitality to body, mind, and spirit.
Contains essential oils: tangerine, peppermint, rosewood, lavender, spearmint, ylang ylang

When combined with the proper essential oils, massage therapy can be a powerful boost to any health regimen. Use Young Living’s exclusive essential oil massage blends to pamper yourself, rejuvenate body and mind, or help the healing process through therapeutic touch.
Many diseases originate with people’s inability to cope with stress. While stress is a normal part of life in this fast-paced world, massage can help manage stress. Those who receive frequent therapeutic massages can experience an aligned perspective and clarity of thought.

How To Use Aromatherapy Massage Oils:
+ Drop a quarter-sized amount of oil into the palm of your hands. Rub your palms together and apply to skin as needed.
+ If using at home, create a warm, quiet, relaxed environment.
+ Use a firm comfortable surface such as a bed, massage table, or floor mat.
+ If doing a foot massage, have the person receiving the massage recline against a large pillow (on a sofa or bed) to fully relax the entire body.
+ Choose soothing music to help you relax during the massage.

My favorite way to relax is to sit outside watching our llamas in the pastures. I especially love it when the crias (baby llamas) are playing together - all my troubles melt away when I watch them.

My favorite way to relax is to lean back in our rubber canoe and let my husband paddle me around the lake.

I love to spray lavender and peppermint essential oil around the room and I have my reed diffusers refreshed. I want to get an ultrasonic diffuser - how do you get one 1/2 off?

The basic Start Living kit required is $40 which includes a small bottle each of lavender and peppermint and the 50% off diffuser coupon that must be redeemed within 60 days.

There are premium kits like the Start Living with Everyday Oils kit for $150 (that also contain the diffuser coupon)has 2 Peppermints, 2 Lavenders, 1 Valor, 1 Peace and calming,1 Purification, 1 Frankincense, 1 Lemon, 1 PanAway, 1 Thieves, ---this is a great variety of small bottles if you are interested in those.

Be well, Jen

the best way i can relax is to turn off all the noise and sit down with a cup of coffee. Iced or hot, the smell perks me up as much as the caffine and the silence is just golden. :)
