Going through a stressful period? Need to rest and recharge? Here are a few ideas to help you get some R&R in the comfort of your own home with local products.
Soothe your mind and body with aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils for the purposes of relieving stress and it can help create a warm, comforting atmosphere in your home. Essential oils and aromatherapy are excellent ways to help you get cozy.
The smells associated with essential oils stimulate the receptors in the nose which send messages to the brain. For instance, inhaling lavender oil may help you relieve menstrual cramps by acting as a muscle relaxant.
Keep in mind that you should never use essential oils directly on your skin. When misused or misunderstood, essential oils can have a real negative impact on your health.
You should always:
- dilute them in a fatty substance if you want to put them on your skin
- carefully read the warnings and counter-indications (pregnant women, drug interactions, etc.)

Create a spa at home
Let the pressures of everyday life melt away by transforming your bathroom into a sanctuary of calm and well-being.
- Light a candle for a comforting ambiance.
- Put some soothing music on.
- Run a hot bath.
- Add some bubble bath, bath salts, or a few drops of essential oil.
- Take some time to meditate and focus on your breathing.
Taking a hot bath is the perfect way to open your pores and get your skin ready for a treatment. You can also prolong your moment of relaxation by asking a loved one to massage you or with a self-massage. This will help you ease muscle tension and get your body ready for restorative sleep.
Take care of yourself from head to toe
Whether it’s a small daily ritual or a one-time moment dedicated to self-care, a great way to alleviate your mind and relax is to care for yourself in the comfort of your own home.
Not only do body care products help you relax, they can also improve and soothe your skin. A great way to achieve a feeling of well-being!
- Start by exfoliating and cleansing your skin.
- Apply your care products on your face, body, hair, and hands.
- Don’t forget your feet!
- And finally, enjoy a cup of your favourite tea.
