Relaxing Spa Night: DIYs with The Vitamin Shoppe Essential Oils:

My love affair with essential oils continues! 

Recently, I had a DIY afternoon creating some soothing and stress-relieving products for my evening relaxation/pampering routine! I can't wait to share my ideas and recipes with you today. :) 

I am so inspired by essential oils. I am a big believer that essential oils work for not only aromatherapy, but also for impactful change for your environment and for your overall health and emotional wellbeing. I turn to essential oils for stress-reduction, for cleaning, to alleviate symptoms of cold/flus, for stomach upset (Note: Not to take internally. Just topical applications), to elevate mood, to enhance the environment for sleep, and so much more! I even use kid-safe essential oils with my children! I love reading and researching about essential oils and learning more about what essential oils can do for you. Honestly, I am having so much fun as I learn and explore.

I know that there are a lot of expensive essential oils out there. Essential oil prices vary widely from brand-to-brand and even from oil-to-oil. Some oils are simply more expensive to produce. I have found that some brands' oils seem to be over priced. I am generally a believer that you get what you pay for. However, I am thrilled that I have found some *amazing* 100% pure essential oils for really fantastic prices. I think the key is to go with trusted brands. 

The Vitamin Shoppe has some really fantastic essential oils from their store brand oil line. I have tried a variety including Lemon, Clove, Lavender, and Cedarwood.  All of these oils are in heavy rotation in my home for everything from cleaning, to diffusing, to diluting and applying topically. Lavendar and Cedarwood are my newest Vitamin Shoppe additions to my essential oil collection and I just LOVE them!

Essential Oils for a Soothing Bedtime Routine:

I especially love diffusing a combination of Lavender and Cedarwood for sleep! I just add 2-3 drops lavendar and 1 drop cedarwood to my diffuser (beside) and diffuse all night. The scent is beautiful and it really helps me to fall asleep and stay asleep all night. 

Besides diffusing essential oils for sleep, I also love adding essential oils into my bedtime relaxation routine. Essential oils can be added to your bedtime lotion for a sleep blend, added to your bath in the form of bath salts or a bath oil, or added to a foot bath for a soothing bedtime foot soak. 

Here are some of my recent recipes for adding my newest The Vitamin Shoppe essential oils into my bedtime routine:

Bedtime Footbath for Tired Feet:
I got a plug-in massaging Foot Bath for Christmas. So, I am very inspired to create essential oil blends and products to use in my new foot bath!!! 

8T Baking Soda
15 drops Lavender
15 drops Cedarwood
Add a few pumps Sweet Almond Oil (or other carrier oil)

I also like to add in some Epsom Salts in the warm water when I am filling up my Footbath tub. 

Bedtime Bath Salts with Lavender and Cedarwood Essential Oils:

Add 10 Drops Essential Oils (I did 5 Lavender and 5 Cedarwood: but you can add any Essential Oil you like)
2 T Baking Soda
2 oz Epsom Salts

My bedtime routine is not complete without a relaxing cup of herbal tea! My latest favorite is Pukka Night Time tea from The Vitamin Shoppe. It is a dreamy blend of organic oat flower, lavender, and limeflower.
