1. MOVE YOUR BODY

We all know the importance of exercise for wellbeing but did you know it can also have a positive impact on your sleep?

Try waking up early to get your workout in to avoid putting it off in the afternoon. This can also help you avoid sleep-ins, which can have a negative impact on your sleeping pattern.

If you find it daunting to hit the gym or book in for a pump class, try going for a morning walk or at home yoga session; any movement is good movement.

Try diluting and applying Peppermint essential oil to your temples and neck before your daily fitness. The refreshing aroma will give you a boost of positivity!


2. CONSTITENCY IS KEY

Do you see results with fitness if you exercise once in a blue moon? Unfortunately, the answer is no and the same thing applies to sleep.

It is important to wake up and go to bed at the same time every day. Being consistent reinforces your body’s sleep-wake cycle.

YL TIP: Select a morning and evening essential oil to help enhance your daily routineLemon essential oil is perfect for the morning with its energising aroma, while RutaVaLa essential oil is a must for the evening as it has relaxing properties.

3. SWITCH UP YOUR ENVIRONMENT

Creating a soothing environment is an important factor when it comes to restful sleep. After all, there is nothing better than a fresh set of sheets and a calming linen spray.
Try creating your own essential oil spray to use on your sheets before bed. Here is one of our favourites below!

Sweet Dreams Spray:

  • Distilled water
  • Spray bottle
  • 10 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 10 drops Cedarwood essential oil
  • Fill spray bottle with water and add essential oils.
  • Shake and sprits spray onto your pillow before going to bed to help support a restful sleep.

4. WIND-DOWN

Try to schedule some you time before bed to wind down after a busy day of kicking your goals!

Take a warm soothing bath or shower before bedtime; try adding 10 drops of Frankincense essential oil and 1 cup of Epsom salt to a bath to create a relaxing environment.

5. JOURNAL

Why is it that your mind will be free of worries until the moment your head hits the pillow?

If your mind is racing with ideas, scenarios or worries, it’s important to get these thoughts on paper to rest your mind to encourage a more positive bedtime experience.

Diffuse Cedarwood to create a comforting atmosphere while you write, you can also dilute and rub a couple of drops between your palms and inhale directly.

6. MEDITATION

Shortly before bedtime, try a relaxation strategy that incorporates mindfulness, such as yoga or meditation, all of which boost sleep time and quality.

Apply the soothing aroma of Peace & Calming® Roll-On to create a relaxing environment for your practice.

7. DITCH THE TECH

The light from your phone screen can trick your mind and body into thinking it’s still light out. Try switching Instagram Reels for your favourite book to help you shift into a calm, relaxed and clear state.

There you have it, 7 easy tips to follow for better sleep!

When combined with a nightly ritual, essential oils can give you the warm, fuzzy feelings you need to encourage a restful night of sweet slumbers.

9 Daily Habits to Energize Your Life

An energized life isn’t about being busy all of the time or working around the clock. It’s about filling your days with healthy habits that fuel your mind, body and spirit.

Here are 9 simple daily habits to help energize your life – you’re going to love the way you feel once you start implementing these rituals into your daily routine.

1. Rise and shine

Say goodbye to drowsy mornings and slow starts! If you get into the routine of rising early and going to bed on time, you’re more likely to have a better sleeping pattern which leads to being more energized throughout the day.

Push back your sheets’ cosy embrace and start your day by diffusing 2 drops Lemon essential oil, 2 drops Citrus Fresh™ essential oil, and 2 drops Peppermint essential oil.

2. Breakfast of champions

Planning a simple, delicious, healthful breakfast makes it easier to get up and provides crucial energy for your day. Try a shot of NingXia Red® with your breakfast to provide a whole-body nutrient infusion.

You can also blend NingXia Red® into your smoothie, acai bowl, or morning juice as part of a quick, convenient breakfast.

3. Hit those goals

Sometimes we lack energy and excitement in our lives because we don’t know what direction we want to go in or how to get there. We're definitely not grounded at all. Take five minutes every morning to create a list of your daily goals and intentions. While planning, diffuse an inspiring blend like Transformation essential oil™ to encourage an uplifting and inspiring atmosphere, helping to create clarity and focus. I have to tell you I use Transformation and Believe together boy what a powerful concoction this is. Also try diffusing them both when you go to bed you will sleep like a baby........... I did!

4. Sweat it out

It’s no secret that exercise can improve your life in many ways, such as provide mental clarity, improve quality of sleep and you guessed it – more energy, much more energy!

However, you like to work up a sweat—whether it’s weights, yoga, running, or even a brisk walk—try to get your body moving every day.

Before you start your workout, apply Deep Relief roll on to muscles for a refreshing, cooling sensation and invigorating scent that will inspire greater feelings of energy and positivity to help you stay motivated. I also use Deep relief roll on to relieve my headaches!

5. Ice ice baby

After your beautiful, nice, warm shower try finishing off with a cold cold shower. I know it's a matter of do as I say not do as I do! I can do it in the Summer months but definitely not then colder seasons. My acupuncturist tells me it supports the Vagus nerve which supports the immune system.6. DON'T FORGET TO HYDRATE

Drinking lots of water is an important key to staying energized, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a total bore!

Try adding a drop oPeppermint culinary essential oil to your water for a refreshing kick. If you like a bubbly drink, add a drop of Jade Lemon oil to your sparkling water for a tasty burst of flavour.

7. Caring for you

It’s never too late to start making yourself a priority! Setting aside time for yourself and following through can give you a whole new perspective on life.

Switching to a natural deodorant is a simple act of self-care! CitraGuard Deodorant uses Lemongrass, Thyme and Lemon essential oils to keep you smelling bright and fresh without resorting to harsh chemicals.

8. Meditation

Quiet your mind and invite peaceful feelings to each day with meditation. Creating a calming space for moments of reflection can significantly enhance your experience. Take a moment away for yourself through a meditation practice – even just 5 minutes can set you for a more grounded day.

Dilute and apply Acceptance essential oil™ to wrists, edge of ears, neck and feet to instill a sense of openness and balance.  

9. Journal

Whether you need a safe space to vent or think more clearly, when your thoughts are put on paper, journaling can be cathartic. Many of us process events and emotions through pen and paper, so write it all down! I personally love this and it makes such a difference each and every day.

Place a drop of Patchouli essential oil on the page before you get started to inspire feelings of balance. Let the positivity guide your pen to paths of peace and resolve.

There you have it – 9 simply daily habits to help energize your life!

Men can use essential oils too! My man does!

*Essential oils are indeed powerful, but please don’t try punching down trees. Just use these essential oils as directed to enjoy their awesome scents and benefit from their therapeutic-grade purity.
 
Exercise
Keeping in shape is one of the pillars upon which your mental health and resilience are built. No matter if you’re crushing some bench presses, turbo kicking the footy, or hiking high enough to high five a kookaburra, you’ll want to keep these basics in your gym bag to help you get the most from every workout:
 
Treat those muscles to a post work out rub down
Massage Cool Azul™ Sports Gel into your skin after a workout for a cooling sensation. Backed with our Seed to Seal® promise of purity, this gel will have your muscles thanking you for ditching the synthetic ingredients.
Deep Relief
 
Take care before and after exercise  
Apply Deep Relief™ Roll-On to your neck and chest before working out to inspire you to push harder or apply it as part of a post-activity massage to target areas that need it most.
After your intense workout, it’s important to feel fresh to face the day ahead, especially if you’re going straight to the office or a meeting. Keep your favourite deodorant in your gym bag to protect your pits—and other people—from offensive odours. Valor® Deodorant provides the protection you need against odour without using aluminium or harsh chemical additives.
 
Boost your boring water
Reach for Lime essential oil, Tangerine essential oil, or Orange essential oil instead of sugary sports drinks to stay hydrated! Just a drop or two in your glass water bottle will keep you coming back for more.
 
Personal Care Patchouli Essential Oil
No men’s guide would be complete without looking into this category. Grooming sounds like such a primitive term, making it perfect for powerful men like us. Separate yourself from the pack by looking great and smelling like nature itself with these essential oil-infused solutions:
 
Smell good without cologne
While it’s important to smell good, it shouldn’t come at a cost to your health. Many colognes are packaged with nasty ingredients that should be avoided – this can be done by selecting a low tox alternatively as your signature scent! Start with Shutran™, Patchouli, Cedarwood, Bergamot, Northern Lights Black Spruce, or Black Pepper to see what works best with your body’s chemistry, then create a combination that’s all yours. Dilute with a smidge of carrier oil and apply a drop or two to your wrists and neck for a masculine scent that lasts all day.
 
Good Eating
You like food. You like flavour. So why haven’t you been super-charging your healthy cooking with the intense flavour of essential oils? Perfect for boosting flavour in almost anything you’re cooking; essential oils are like a flavour bomb compared to dried herbs. Add Lemon to fish, Black Pepper to steak sauce and marinades, and Basil to Italian. Get creative—your taste buds will thank you for it.
 
Treat your face to ShutranShutran Shave Cream       
If you like a clean shave, make sure you’re at least doing it with the best stuff. Shutran™ Shave Cream is full of hydrating ingredients and pure essential oils that’ll give you a close shave with a great fragrance. Make sure to put moisture back into your skin after shaving to avoid that post-shave itchy feeling. Feel as good as your shave looks with refreshing Shutran™ Aftershave Lotion. Our 100 percent plant-based aftershave soothes, freshens, and calms skin after you’ve roughed up your skin shaving.

 Keep that burly beard in check  
If you prefer a rugged look, it’s important to maintain those luscious locks you’ve spent so long growing – after all other men are impressed and life is good. Your new best friend is beard oil as it helps to condition the hair, reduce itching, moisturise and tame flyaway strands. Shutran™ Beard Oil was specially crafted to soften, condition, and add a healthy-looking sheen to facial hair while moisturising the skin underneath.
 
Put some Zyng in your step NingXia Zyng
Add a splash of hydration to your routine by keeping NingXia Zyng™ handy. Or if you’re in a real rush, reach for a NingXia Red Sachet to keep your athletic performance at its peak. Both are delicious, convenient as heck, and infused with essential oils.
