How to Use Essential Oils to Survive the Holidays Posted on 20 Nov 16:05

This time of year things can start to get hectic. The weather is changing, and the holidays have begun! There is so much excitement, and preparation as you welcome loved ones and family members home to share in your Thanksgiving celebration. And this is just the start of the holiday season!

While we all look forward to these memorable days with family and friends, times like this can bring some very serious stressors. Every family has that “one friend” that never seems to know when it’s time to go home, or the uncle who always says the MOST offensive thing at the most inappropriate time.

While there is nothing you can do to control your party guests, you can control some things by preparing for disaster ahead of time. In this article we discuss how essential oils can help you survive all of the challenges of the holidays with your health and happiness intact.

 

GETTING THROUGH WITHOUT CATCHING A BUG

As you already know, seasonal sickness this time of year is practically a given. There are a lot of bacteria and viruses floating around outside and, while it’s warm and cozy in your home, you want it take extra steps to ensure it’s not also an inviting place for infectious bugs!

The Health Shield Blend includes 5 important essential oils, each chosen to attack foreign invaders in a special way. The Health Shield Blend is made using Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus, Lemon, and Rosemary. This is a blend that dates back to ancient Egypt where grave robbers would use these oils to protect them from the bacteria of rotting bodies! Crazy, right?

Interestingly, the Health Shield Blend has a very seasonal aroma that helps to conjure positive memories and emotion while simultaneously working its protective magic. Use it in a spray to clean and freshen the air, diffuse it through one of our stylish ultrasonic diffusers, or dilute and apply it directly to the skin to put a barrier between you and those bad bugs.

WHEN YOU CATCH THE BUG ANYWAY

No matter how hard we try to keep everything ultra-clean, sickness DOES happen. And when it does, you can be prepared with the Sinus Relief, Cough, and Cold Set. It’s ideal for when you or your loved ones are feeling a little under the weather, and it eases all kinds of seasonal ailments including respiratory distress, headaches, sleeping trouble, stress, and of course stuffy sinuses while also boosting your immunity with wonderfully soothing aromas. The set includes these premium essential oil singles and blends:

Breathe Blend contains a careful synergy of essential oils selected for easier breathing. Great for stuffy noses and congested chests!
French Lavender is traditionally used to help ease mental and physical stresses. Use it to rest, relax, and drift off into dreamland.
Head Ease Blend takes away the pain of throbbing temples and works wonders on migraines. Also eases sinus pressure.
Health Shield Blend is your one-stop-shop for defense against germs. (You remember this one, right?)
Lemon boosts moods and immunity! A very cleansing oil - important to have around this time of year.
Peppermint is refreshing and cleansing for all surfaces. A very powerful oil. Considered an essential. Plus, it’s got that great seasonal scent!

 

CREATING A WARM HOLIDAY HOME

The holidays aren’t just about preparing a celebration, making a meal, and then cleaning up. We take these days as opportunities to share time with the most important people in our lives. So naturally we want our homes to be an inviting place to make lasting memories. Use the Home & Family Set to create that warm holiday atmosphere of love and peace. It includes everything you need to keep things calm, happy and bright: Calm Body/Calm Mind and Harmony Blend, French Lavender, Grapefruit, Key Lime, and Spearmint.

WHEN SOMEBODY GETS HURT

It’s all fun and games until Grandpa pulls a muscle or the kids break something… like an arm. Never fear, while the First Aid Essential Oil Set won’t reset broken bones, it does just about everything else. This set contains all-natural relief for muscle sprains & strains, allergies, cuts, scrapes, rashes, insect bites, burns, migraines, nausea, and even untimely PMS.

AFTER IT’S ALL OVER

There isn’t a lot of “me” time during the holidays. Things can get pretty hectic around the house! Take the time after everyone’s gone home and the dishes have been washed and put away to replenish your energy stores with the Relax & Rejuvenate Set. It contains everything you need in order to unwind and melt away leftover stress. Use any of the oils in this set as an addition to bath salts in a warm bath or simply enjoy them aromatically through your diffuser. The Relax & Rejuvenate Set also makes an ideal gift! It includes our Calm Body/Calm Mind, Cleanse Body & Mind, Relaxation, and Harmony blends along with French Lavender and Peppermint singles.
