Top 10 Ways to Use REVIVE Stress Easy
Stress is defined as a state of emotional or mental strain or tension resulting from demanding circumstances. Hmm, sounds like everyday life in America. Unfortunately, stress has become a common or everyday occurrence for so many of us, including children! Plus, this emotional state of being often leads to physical ailments like headaches, high blood pressure, stomach pain, and even heart conditions. The best thing to do is to handle it as quickly as possible before it gets worse.
The good news is that there are many natural ways to combat stress and anxiety. The use of Essential Oils is one of those, and luckily REVIVE is here to help. Our Stress Easy Blend is a perfect option for when you are looking for one of those holistic aids. Here are 10 fun and easy ways to use your Stress Easy blend when you are in need of a little mental makeover.
Top 10 Ways to Use REVIVE Stress Easy
- Diffuse, Diffuse, Diffuse
Inhaling Essential Oils is one of the easiest and fastest ways to use Aromatherapy. REVIVE has an amazing, high capacity ultrasonic diffuser that makes diffusing oils simple and efficient. When that wave of stress starts to come over you, just reach for your bottle of Stress Easy and add 5-7 drops of the Essential Oil Blend to 100ml of water and turn it on. Keep it running next to you while you read a book or do a few yoga poses to help you unwind after a long day.
- Take a Bath
Warm water, on its own, can be very relaxing. Climbing into a hot tub in a quiet bathroom can help you unplug and reset your mind for the next day. Why not add a little extra boost to that bath by using your natural stress relief oil in the water as well? Simply add about 8 drops of Stress Easy oil to 1 tablespoon of unscented body soap or carrier oil (this helps the Essential Oils disperse in the water better). Then mix it into about 1 cup of Epsom Salts and pour into your running stream of water as you fill your tub. The scent will envelop your whole body while you lie back in the bath and the Epsom Salt will also aid in releasing muscle tightness to boot.
- Take Your Stress Relief With You
Stress Easy is such a versatile blend that can be used on its own in a DIY aromatherapy roller or in conjunction with other oils. To a clean REVIVE 10ml glass roller bottle, add 15 drops of Stress Easy in the bottom, then fill the rest of the way with a carrier oil of your choice. We love Fractionated Coconut Oil because it is not greasy and it has a long shelf life. Pop in the roller and screw the top on. Keep in your pocket or purse and apply as needed to help ease tension. Another fun idea for your roll-on is to use 9 drops of Stress Easy Oil with about 6 drops of Sweet Orange Oil. This blend is smooth, sweet, and reminiscent of a Creamsicle. The therapies of the Orange Oil mixed with the Stress Oil are compounded and you get that little extra mood boost that you sometimes need.
- Sleep Aid
Stress Easy, as the name implies, is great for easing stress and anxiety. Often times being stressed out is a main cause of why you cannot get to sleep at night. If you want to amp up the relaxation power of this blend, you can add a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil with it as well. These 2 Oils together will help promote a feeling of calm and bring on a peaceful sleep. In your diffuser, put in 3 drops of the Stress Easy Blend and 2 drops of Lavender Oil with about a half of a cup of water. Turn on your REVIVE Oasis Diffuser and feel those troubles melt away as you catch some ZZZ’s.
- Give a Stress Reducing Gift
I bet you know a ton of other people who are stressed and could use a little relaxation just like you! Why not share the love? Maybe you want to give a cute, homemade gift to a teacher or a neighbor. Just whip up a batch of this Stress Easy Sugar Scrub. From your local craft sore, you can purchase a glass jar with a lid. In a bowl, combine about 4 Tablespoons of REVIVE’s Fractionated Coconut Oil with 15-20 drops of Stress Easy Essential Oil, then mix in 1 Cup of Granulated Sugar. Once smooth, scoop into the glass jar and close tightly. Happily give the gift of stress relief and know that you helped make someone’s day.
- Promote Calm in Your Workplace
Even if you love your job, work can definitely be a stressor in your life. Workplace stress is very common and often times it can affect your ability to do your best and complete necessary daily tasks. Tackling that negative feeling with a little help from a natural aid before it interferes with your performance is a great idea. Try this DIY stress-reducing room spray and soon you might find that everyone in the office is in a better mood.
Take a clean 4 oz spray bottle (glass is best), and add in ½ teaspoon of Stress Easy Essential Oil Blend and 1-2 teaspoons of witch hazel or vodka. Swirl them together in the bottom, then top with 3.5 oz of distilled or filtered water. Screw on the spray top, then shake gently and mist as needed to help manage stress levels at work.
- Use for Muscle Tension
One of the main ingredients in Stress Easy is Copaiba Essential Oil. This resinous oil is an incredible anti-inflammatory and can help alleviate mild pain. When combined with other pain relieving oils, it packs a one-two punch against both stress and muscle tension. Plus, it smells like Root Beer!
Next time your shoulders are tight from carrying the weight of the world, simply take a Tablespoon of unscented lotion and add 3 drops of Stress Easy with 3 drops of REVIVE’s Ache Away Essential Oil Blend. Mix together and apply, then feel the taut muscles begin to relax.
- Help Your Children Unwind
It’s sad to say that more and more children are feeling the effects of stress every day. The demands put on kids to perform well in school, sports, activities, music, and friendships could be very overwhelming. Stress Easy is a gentle, safe blend that can also encourage your little ones to help let go of the day and ease them into a relaxing night. A great idea to help them calm down and to support a bonding experience is to give them a soothing foot massage. Take a palmful of unscented lotion and add about 3-4 drops of Stress Easy Blend to it. Mix well in your hands and apply to your child’s clean, bare feet. Light pressure on the ball of the foot in a circular motion can be very relaxing. In addition, you have some one on one time with them to help them talk through their day.
- Control Road Rage
Traffic! Slow drivers! Bad weather! These are all things that can really get to us when we are driving in our cars. Many of us will experience road rage at some point, and it would be better for everyone if we could just calm down. Here’s a thought, bring your Stress Easy Blend along for the ride. Take a simple cotton ball and put a few drops of your Stress Blend onto it. Place the scented ball in between the slats of your car vent so it sits in their tightly. As you drive with your heat or air on, it will gently diffuse the stress reducing aroma into your vehicle. Soon, you won’t even be thinking about traffic because your mind is at ease.
- Reduce Symptoms of PMS
Ugh! It’s that time of the month again. You feel irritable and you have cramps. No worries, Stress Easy is here to help. As mentioned earlier, this blend is anti-inflammatory, which means it can be helpful with reducing menstrual cramps. Clary Sage Essential Oil is a natural pain reliever that is also known to promote hormonal balance and boost your mood. It is a super star oil for women’s issues. So, when you are in need, take 2 drops of Stress Easy and 1 drop of Clary Sage mixed into a carrier oil and apply it to your abdomen. Then sit back, relax, and feel those monthly woes fade away.
If you have sensitive skin, dilute the blend in some Fractioned Coconut Oil for safe topical application. Do not use near sensitive areas like eyes and inner ears.
