Staying at home is the safe thing to do these days. Why not make it as relaxing and as stress-free as possible? Here are a five items to lift your spirits, bring nature into your home and hopefully bring peace, happiness and joy into your world.
Get good sleep – yes, it is hard, especially if you are stressed out and have a whirling mind. One way to help yourself is with super soft sheets. Try Ettitude, a sustainable sleep brand which offers luxury quality, modern bedding, sleepwear, and bath essentials, made from the world’s first CleanBamboo™ fabric.
I highly recommend their luscious sheets to sleep in, they might revolutionize your sleep as the fabric is feathery soft, thermo-regulating, extremely breathable, antimicrobial, and water-saving, thus resulting in bed sheets that are better for you and the environment.
Costa Farms Plants
The way I see it – the more nature you have surrounding you right now the better. If you live in an apartment plants are the ultimate energy booster as they provide oxygen and brighten your home. I adore the exotic ones from Costa Farms. The Crotons – (see photo) are very relaxing to have around you. They are grown in a greenhouse, expertly packed and delivered right to your door. They are stunning, and right away lifted my mood.
While they are sold in many stores around the country, these days the best way to get them is to order online from Lowes, Home Depot and more, and have these pick-me-ups delivered right to your door. Check out www.costafarms.com to learn about plants and your options.
Set the Scent: Humidifier and Diffuser all wrapped up into one
The GuruNanda White Tower XL Diffuser is a way to turn your bedroom into a place of serenity as it is both a humidifier and aromatherapy diffuser in one, and it combines the best of both worlds. Unlike other aromatherapy diffusers, it has a large 2 liter capacity, meaning it can produce mist for up to 12 hours without the constant need to refill.
Regular humidifiers are not made to be used with essential oils. This I know as I have experimented and tried with not great results. But the White Tower diffuser is designed specifically to do both beautifully.
Users get the bonus of better air quality especially during the cold dry winter months along with a pleasant aromatic environment and a variety of wellness benefits, depending on which essential oil or oil blend they choose to use. To relax – yes we all need to try a lavender oil and to lift up your spirits peppermint or orange is a great fit. The GuruNanda White Tower XL diffuser is exclusively available at www.gurunanda.com
Finding Home Farm Candles
If you can’t get out into nature now – bring it home to you with these aromatic scented soy candles that are made from USA-grown soy. I especially like the Cedar Lakes Estate Collection with scents like Lake and Cabin. If you can’t go outside – bring the scents of nature inside to your home. The fragrance oils are phthalate-free, paraben-free and made from a combination of essential oils and cosmetic grade fragrance.
Times like these, when you want to be comfortable, take your blanket with you to the couch and simply wear it. The Comfy made famous on the Shark Tank is truly a pleasure to lounge in, and fun for the whole family. It’s cozy, relaxing and will keep you warm. It is an oversized hoodie made from an ultra-soft microfiber exterior, and a luxurious sherpa lined interior. The Comfy comes in both adults and kids sizes. and will simply put a smile on your face while keeping you snug and warm.
