There is always time for self-care. Self-care is a form self-love and we can never do too much of something that makes us feel good. While it’s common to see self-care marketed as an expensive day at a beautiful day spa (which, don’t get us wrong - is absolutely divine!), there are plenty of simple ways to take some time out for yourself and in the comfort of your own home.

You may need to learn how to dedicate time for self-care practices if you are not taking enough time for yourself already. You can start with the most simple things, like inhaling your favourite essential oil every morning and turn this into a self-care ritual where you create your own home spa indulgence. We have put together some of our favourite self-care practices to give you ideas on how you can nurture yourself everyday.

Self-care for your body

Take a bath

Add your favourite essential oil and unwind. Our favourites are Lavender, Rose 3%, Jasmine 3%, Chamomile 3% and Frankincense.

Apply a mask

Give your skin some love. Put your diffuser on, sit back and relax.

Stretch out aches

Lengthen your body and allow release of any strain. Feeling sore? Rub a little Peppermint, Lavender, Clove Bud or Wintergreen essential oil with a carrier oil to your achy spots.


Give yourself a massage by moisturising your body. Add a few drops of your favourite oil for the ultimate sensory experience.

Take a nap

Let yourself fall into a deep relaxation and not feel guilty for it. Calm & Destress Blend, Lullaby and Dream Drops are a must.
