Chill Out With These Essential Oil Self-Care Routines

Feeling stressed? Depressed? Or just not your best? Whatever the drama, you deserve some time quality ~me time~

Whether a hot bubble bath is your thing or simply just curling up in bed, we’ve curated three different nighttime routines based around one of our fave essential oils– so they’re as beneficial as they are relaxing.

Scroll through to see our essential oil self-care routines that’ll help you unwind at the end of the day.

 

FOR THE BODY: LAVENDER

We love lavender for its calming properties, but did you know it works wonders for pain relief as well? If you’re feeling sore after a long day, we recommend a hot lavender bubble bath to unwind while you tend to anything that aches as well. Check out our top picks for lavender products below:

~Hot~ tip: if you only have access to a shower (we get it, bathtubs are serious luxuries) then sprinkle a few drops of lavender oil in your shower to create a ‘lavender steam’ escape!

[L’Occitane Lavender Harvest Foaming Bath, $44] [Thursday Plantation 100% Lavender Oil, $20][Kiehl’s Deluxe Hand and Body Lotion with Aloe Vera and Oatmeal, $32][Lush Twilight Bath Bomb, $7][Province Apothecary Lavender Essential Oil Incense, $16]

 

FOR THE FACE: CHAMOMILE & ROSE

Subtle chamomile and sweet rose are just as soothing for the soul as they are for the skin, so we’ve featured them in this evening skincare routine! Moisturizing the face is especially important as we leave these dry winter months, but don’t stress. These products will do the trick and just might become your daily destress ritual:

[Darphin Intral Cleansing Milk with Chamomile, $42][Mario Bodescu Rose Hips Mask, $24][Glossier Soothing Face Mist, $22][Ole Henrikson Nurture Me Moisturizing Creme, $40][Kiehl’s Simply Rose Butterstick Lip Treatment, $24]

 

FOR THE BEDROOM: BERGAMOT

Getting a good night’s sleep is paramount to feeling your best, but getting a good night’s sleep when you aren’t feeling your best can be difficult. So we’ve enlisted bergamot, a natural antidepressant and relaxant, to create a cozy sleep environment. Take a look at our top bergamot picks, as well as some other goodies that will help you get that much needed beauty rest, below:

[Province Apothecary Calm Down Therapeutic Roll On, $32][Bath & Body Works Bergamot 3 Wick Candle, $25][La Vie En Rose Eyemask, $10][Gravity Blanket, $290][Stash Earl Grey Decaf Tea, $5]
