This week I am excited to announce I have teamed up with the fabulous Becky Bayda - founder and owner of Fête Essential Oil Company! I have been obsessed with these oils for awhile now so I hope you love them as much as I do.
Valentines & Essential Oils
February is the month where we celebrate love and shower those we adore with candles and candy. If you truly want to show your affection to your one true love, why not swap out the former for a healthy alternative both for the air and for your health. Did you know that many popular brands of scented candles are made with paraffin, lead, benzene, and toluene (two known cancer-causing carcinogens)? When these substances are burned, toxins are released into the air and into your lungs, causing all sorts of health issues.
Enter, essential oils. These wonders of the earth can be used in a plethora of ways and boast heaps of benefits! When used in a diffuser, they are not burned, rather they are pumped out in billowing, fresh plumes of water vapor – which not only enriches the air but has the warm ambiance of a candle. Don’t have a diffuser? Not to worry! Essential oils are multi-faceted and can be added to a plethora of Valentine’s Day rituals like baths, massages and hitting the sheets ;)
A few of our favourite oils that invoke the feelings of love are ylang ylang, cedarwood and patchouli. Simply adding these in a 2:1:1 ratio to your bath water, to a massage or carrier oil (jojoba, almond, olive oil etc) or to a spray bottle filled with clean water for a romantic linen spray.
If health matters to you and your loved one, then essential oils are the right choice!
