Okay guys, honestly, my room vibe is so on point right now I kindaaa wish you were here.
White christmas lights strung around the perimeter of my closet are ON, my wine glass is a romantic 3 inches away from me, it’s cloudy outside, Nara Leao is streaming thru my phone, my fresh sunflowers are lookin’ extra fresh annnnnnd, my new essential oil defuser is totallllly setting the relaxing mood with some essential lavender oil.
I knew I was growing up the day I actually started liking the smell of lavender.
Sooo, this all started the other day. It was the day after my birthday, I actually didn’t feel too hungover but I definitely felt like I didn’t want to see or talk to anyone all day…like for sure not. You guys get that right?
I spent my morning on groupon finding cheap deals on a microdermabrasion facial and a haircut with a conditioning treatment (TOTALLY recommend both by the way, groupon is the shit. My facial was 35 and my haircut with treatment was 20…).
Honestly, I just wanted to be as RELAXED as possible. Not to mention I’ve been sick for like a damn WEEK which is SO not like me so I wanted to 1. Make sure my room was as comfy as possible and 2. Make sure I actually got some sleep this time around.
I decided to go make a pit stop at Marshall’s because, duh, who doesn’t love Marshalls…and I totally ended up getting the essentials…no pun intended.
After hearing about how amazing tea tree oil is for our skin to prevent pimples AND after my hair stylist THAT DAY used tea tree oil in my hair to fix the ends, I was thinking that I would need to go to Whole Foods and spend an arm and a leg to get some BUT turns out Marshall’s had some.
And when I say some, I mean a shit ton. And I spent about 5.00 dollars on it.
They have every kind of essential oil you can think of and they actually have cute little bundle packages too.
I got a lavender oil because the smell helps you DE-STRESS, RELAX and just CALLLMMM DOWN.
I HIGHLY recommend that you guys get one! This one was only 30 bucks and like I said, the oil’s we’re 5 dollars each.
These diffusers give us more energy, help us sleep and they’re overall good for our health.
They combat with nasty pathogens in the air which helps prevent us from getting sick AND if you’re already sick, it acts as a humidifier and allows our airways to stay fresh and keep from getting clogged up.
Once the oils are in the air they actually BALANCE it which helps you focus, so LEGIT… you can work and think better. People actually recommend having a defuser on while you’re having a work meeting or studying so that you’re 100% focused.
The diffuser took like 5 minutes to set up. You just add water, add in a couple drops of your favorite essential oil and plug it in.
It makes my whole room smell like lavender! It’s like a little spa touch which I LOVE.
After looking into it a little more I found what oils they recommend for certain things so heeeeere ya go!!
