With Father’s Day rapidly approaching, we find ourselves with the same dilemma of always: What do we get them? Another neutral color shirt? A new razor identical to the last? These are the same mundane gifts we’ve been giving them all their life, and maybe this time we can spice it up a bit more than they’re use to.
If the man of the house is exhausted during the day, but has a hard time sleeping at night, creating two products will help them get through the day. One for the evening and one for their morning shower.
The Morning Shower Gel
There’s nothing more comforting than an old standby — like those jeans that always seems to make you look thinner, or that pasta dish that always gets rave reviews. One of my favorite old standbys is Lemon oil. I turn to it for all kinds of things!
This essential oil is very versatile — providing relief for everything from insomnia, to tummy troubles, to problems concentrating, to circulation issues, and more. In fact, Lemon has been used to battle both physical and emotional ailments ever since the 12th century!
Thanks to its natural antibacterial properties, Lemon oil can help you win the fight over acne and insect bites. And speaking of your skin, it will also combat all of that sebum that makes your face look like an oil slick.
Between fun days at the beach, evening barbecues with the family, and nighttime camping trips with friends, is there any wonder why we look forward to this season all year long?
But there’s something about summer that we definitely don’t look forward to — bugs. Mosquitoes and other insects thrive during the warm summer months. They’re not just annoying, though. They’re also capable of spreading infections and other dangerous diseases. If you really want to enjoy your summer, you’ve got to figure out a way to win the battle over bugs.
Luckily, the right blend of essential oils can be your best weapon!
Most people assume that you’ve got to slather yourself with stinky, chemical-laden sprays to truly fight off bugs. However, I’ve come up with a special bug repellent recipe that smells as great as it works. Best of all, when you make some of this special blend at home, you can rest easy knowing that everyone will be protected, without relying on toxic ingredients.
You’ve heard all about my passion for aromatherapy, but there’s something else that I absolutely love — Zumba™. I actually teach a Zumba™ class six times a week, and on top of that, I also make time for Barre classes and weight training. On average, I spend about 10 hours of every week exercising, and I love it!
But I couldn’t do it without my essential oils.
Most people don’t think to combine aromatherapy with exercise, but once you try it, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it! Best of all, no matter what kind of exercise you love — running, lifting weights, competitive sports, dancing — aromatherapy can help you bring your “A game” every time.
How can the right essential oils boost your fitness routine?
As much as I love where I live, I also love getting out and seeing as many corners of the world as I can. I’ve been really lucky this year. So far, I’ve already been to Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, and South Florida, and I’ve got plans to visit New York, New Orleans, and maybe even Peru.
Whether you’re traveling for work or for fun, there’s one thing you’ve got to bring along with you — the right essential oils! With just a little bit of knowledge under your belt, you can turn your essential oils into the perfect traveling companion.
