Self-care: a night in with essential oils

Posted on Sun, Oct 30, 2022 by Amit Bambral

There are many ways we can take care of ourselves, but a simple and easy way especially for a busy body is to do a self-care night. Before heading to bed, insert this routine to end the day with self-care and relaxation with essential oils.

First, dim the lights and light some candles. If you haven’t already, enjoy a home-cooked meal. Afterwards, add a few drops of one of your favorite essential oils to the diffusers. Take a nice, warm bath or shower, incorporating some products with essential oils if you can. Finally, enjoy a book or turn on your favorite show.

Essential oils are perfect for relaxation, especially for your self-care night, so here are some recommended essential oils.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils for self-care and relaxation. It has calming and relaxing properties and scents that aid in sleep and skin nourishment. It has a soft, sweet scent and is extremely versatile. Lavender feels cliched but it is an absolute must for a self-care night. You can use a few drops of its essential oil in the diffuser to enhance the ambiance of the room or with carrier oils for a relaxing self-massage.

Orange Essential Oil

The sweet, citrus and almost floral scent of orange is unmistakable. It is a refreshing but also relaxing essential oil - a perfect way to end the day. It is also another great essential for self-care as its aroma helps uplift and boost positive moods. If you want something a bit more vibrant, orange essential oils are the way to go. You can use a few drops in the diffuser or inhale it straight from the bottle to refresh and soothe your mind.

Rosemary Essential Oil

Rosemary is a herb that is often used to enhance the flavors of various dishes. But, that’s not all that it is good for. Rosemary essential oils are also a great way to relax at the end of a long, tiring day. It is perfect for people with dry skin, and also great for muscle relaxation. You can use a few drops in the diffuser, or add a few drops to your shampoo for dry scalp relief. As it is great for muscle relaxation, it is also perfect as a massage oil when paired with a carrier oil.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Like rosemary, eucalyptus has great properties for muscle relaxation. It also helps soothe and open up the respiratory system when inhaled with its mint-like aroma. It is another great self-care essential oil. You can use a few drops in the diffuser or make a warm facial by covering your face with a wet warm towel that was dipped in very warm water and a few drops of essential oil. It is also perfect as a massage oil when paired with a carrier oil.
