5 Essential Oils That Will Help You Create A Relaxing Sanctuary At Home

Hit the refresh button with these pure essential oils for a stress-free life.

You do not even need to go to the spa, you can make your own at home. All you need is an essential oils diffuser (which are not expensive to buy) and the pure essential oils of your choice.

With some relaxing music of your choice playing in the background, you can create the most amazing ‘chill out‘ space for yourself, which will leave you feeling rejuvenated.

What you need to know about buying essential oils is that they have to be 100% natural and ideally, they should have ‘therapeutic grade’. You can buy the whole set, or just one bottle, although I like to buy the set as in that way I can mix different oils in the diffuser and create my own unique blend of aromas.

My favorite essential oils are really natural aromas of sweet orange, lemon, and grapefruit, and I sometimes use them in combination with other oils such as peppermint, lavender or  tea tree, depending on what particular kind of aromatherapy I feel I need.

This morning, I am using a mixture of sweet orange and lavender in my diffuser, creating a clean and refreshing combination that I am enjoying while listening to the relaxing sounds of the Ocean in the background.
