To create an aromatherapy bath, add 7-12 drops of essential oil to each ounce of carrier oil. Ensure the water temperature is about 38 degrees celsius. Add oil mixture to running water and set up the mood with candles, music, bath pillow and dim lights. Soak for about 20 minutes and wrap yourself with a fluffy towel to allow moisturising agents to stay on.
Bedtime Rituals: Stick to a fixed bed time, even on the weekends; Turn off all electronics; Wind down- light some incense, a scented candle, or take a warm aromatherapy bath; Dim the lights especially in your bedroom; Keep your bedroom cool, dark, quiet, and well ventilated; Eat light- Avoid heavy meals in the evening; Breathe and relax- relax all the muscles in your body.
If you have difficulty sleeping, inability to focus, and feel moody for most of the day, these are warning signs and might wear you down emotionally. This is when you need to engage in meditation and communicate with the silence of your spirit. Some people may like to chant a mantra. These vibrations then divert the mind to allow transformation and harmony to occur. You must listen to their breath and heartbeat and engage in peaceful meditation.
