After years of debating on whether or not we should do it, we finally decided to remodel our basement! We finally finished the walls, put a new floor in, added a living room, and we fulfilled our dream of having a bar inside the house.

Since there was going to be a lot of Sangria and Cosmos being consumed at the new bar, we realized we were going to have to put a bathroom in the basement. The only place left to do this was the room right next to the bar, and this got us thinking: If the bathroom was going to be directly next to the bar and living room, it would be most ideal to reduce, as much as possible, all odors that would be coming from the bathroom. So how could a household, like mine and everyone else’s, do that?

fathers day diy gifts
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.

We need to take into consideration certain aspects of a man’s life:

  • Balancing work, family, and payments takes a toll on them and causes stress. They may not be as vocal about the issues as women are, but they still go through stressful situations that take have an effect on them.
  • Men like to be nurtured (whether they admit it or not), they like to look good, and they like to smell pleasant. They may not act like it, but these are factors that play a role in who they are.
  • They are well aware of what goes into their body and how it affects their wellbeing. When they are given the opportunity to be healthier, they’ll take it in order to maintain the best health.
  • They won’t normally take an hour in the bathroom getting ready, so having a product that ensures their satisfaction while taking the least amount of time from their day, will prove to be most valuable.
  • They do have feelings, and seeing that you didn’t get them the same thing every other dad gets will make them appreciate you for your thoughtfulness.

FOR THE STRESSFUL MAN

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.

Ahhh summertime…

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.

Here’s your DIY recipe:

  • 1 oz plastic spray bottle (travel size empty bottle, can be found at any supermarket)

Apr 28 2015 aromatherapy-for-hands
Think about all the things your hands do in a day.  Between washing dishes, carrying groceries, covering up coughs, digging around in the garden, and braving the cold, is there any wonder why your hands get rough, dry, cracked, and sore?! 

Luckily, though, you don’t have to change your life to have soft, smooth hands.  All you need to do is add a few essential oils to your daily routine!

No matter what you’ve subjected your hands to, the right essential oils can help.  The skin on your hands is thick, which is perfect for preventing germs and other dangers from penetrating it.  However, your body’s natural protection mechanisms aren’t enough to fend off all the stress, dirt, and chemicals your hands are subjected to on a daily basis.  Essential oils are a safe, effective way to supplement the work your body does naturally.  For example, lemon oil is a great cleanser, while geranium, lavender, and rose all help nourish the skin on your hands.  Chamomile and lavender are great for relieving eczema and contact dermatitis, or if you’re dealing with lots of roughness or scrapes, frankincense can provide an extra dose of TLC.

Want to take your hand care routine a step further?  The right oil blends can work wonders!  Here are some of my favorites:

Hand Care Scrub

The only way to get softer, smoother hands is to exfoliate on a regular basis.  That way, you can slough off dead cells and make it easier for your skin to soak up valuable nutrients.  My Hand Care Scrub is gentle enough to be used once a day, but strong enough to get rid of all the build-up that’s making your hands rough. 

Simply combine:

1 tablespoon coconut oil
3 drops of frankincense
2 drops of lemon
1 teaspoon of sea salt. 

Rub the scrub on your hands, and rinse.  That’s it!
 

Hand Care Oil

Whether you’ve been digging in the dirt or handling detergents and other harsh cleaners, your hands need a little extra TLC.  This Hand Care Oil will give your hands some much-needed moisture. 

Just mix:

1 ounce jojoba oil
8 drops lavender 
4 drops rose maroc
2 drops blue chamomile
Rub it in, and both the scent and the soothing moisture will instantly make you feel more relaxed!

Antifungal Nail Oil

Your nails are exposed to a lot — even more than your hands, because they’re the first sensory contact point with the environment around you.  They should be elastic, have a dull shine, and be slightly curved.  If yours don’t look that way, they need a pick-me-up. 
Simply mix:
1 ounce carrier oil
8 drops tea tree
3 drops patchouli
3 drops lemon

  Massage it into your nail bed 3 times each day for cleaner, healthier nails. 

Aromatic Nail Conditioning Soak

If your cuticles are dry or torn, the right essential oils can make them look healthy and vibrant. 
All you have to do is mix:
4 tablespoons of olive oil,
5 drops lemon 
2 drops rosemary
3 drops lavender

Buff your nails with a nail buffer. Buffing will boost your circulation and make your nails shinier.  Then soak your nails in this mixture for 10 minutes.  This mixture will soften your cuticles, keep fungus at bay, and make break-prone nails stronger.

Remember, it’s important to take good care of your hands.  Not only will healthier hands look and feel younger, but your hands are also chock full of reflex points and pressure points.  So, the better you treat your hands, the better you’ll feel all over!

Your hands will love the vast collection of essential oils and blends at Aromandina!
