    We get it, all of the hustle and bustle from the holidays can be exhausting. From maneuvering crowds in shopping malls, to spending hours wrapping gifts, planning parties and hosting guests, when it's all said and done you can experience holiday burnout. It's time to unwind from the holiday stress and treat yourself and your loved ones to a few relaxing days before the New Year. 

    "From overeating to stressful activities, it’s no surprise that the holiday season can trigger heartburn,” said Michael Bachman, marketing director at Perrigo in a recent post on Fox News. Reducing stress after the holidays can help ensure your mind and body is in the right state to stay healthy and cultivate good habits for self-care in the New Year.

    The holiday season is such an enchanting time, filled with anticipation, surprise, love, family and spirituality. However, during all this excitement we need to remember to stop, relax and actually take a holiday. We have come up with six great suggestions to help you have a little relaxing holiday after the Christmas season.

Get comfy and cozy and relax with your loved ones, spending quality time laughing and enjoying a great holiday movie.

  • Essential Oils for Your Little Ones Essential Oils for Your Little Ones

    Coughs, colic, fussiness, sleeplessness and many more ailments can be relieved naturally with essential oils. This article lists a few oils that every mom and dad should have on hand to relieve baby's minor ailments. 

    More and more parents are choosing to use essential oils over medications to calm, heal and protect their babies. However, all oils aren't created equal. Oils mixed with chemicals to alter the smell, consistency or strength of oil is not the best option for a baby's gentle skin. When searching brands make sure you look for oils with no added chemicals or harmful ingredients. Oils mixed with carriers to make it suitable for use on the skin are the best option when selecting oils for delicate skin. This is also true for adults with sensitive skin. Pure essential oils should always be mixed with carrier oils such as coconut or jojoba oil to protect the skin, not chemicals or questionable ingredients. 

    Once you have decided on a trusted brand, look for oils that are suitable for your intended use. For example, Tea Tree is great for hair growth and Lavender is a wonderful aid for a peaceful sleep. 

    So which oils are best for my little one, you may ask? Well, Blissfully Serene has done some of that research for you. We want you to feel confident when selecting the best oils for your baby. Whether you are setting out on your essential oil journey or are all too familiar with essential oils and their benefits, this article seeks to provide you with a little more knowledge on which oils to use safely on your baby.

    According to a post in Health line, "On babies older than 3 months, some essential oils can be used to help encourage sleep, calm anxiety, and even relieve symptoms of colic. Before applying essential oils to babies, it’s important to understand proper dilution ratios and application methods."

    When applying oil to baby make sure to only use a drop as a little goes a long way to add carrier oil. Diffusing oils can bring numerous benefits to the household, it helps to kill airborne bacteria and boost the immune system of everyone in the room. Diffusion is also the best way to reap the benefits from oils that relieve respiratory issues.

    Be sure to dilute essential oils in a water-soluble carrier, such as a cup of whole milk or olive oil before adding to a baby's bath, to eliminate the risk of skin irritation. Never use essential oils in baby's eyes or nose and be careful to keep oils away from little hands to minimize accidents. When in doubt, patch test before applying fully to baby's skin. Be sure to speak to your baby's Pediatrician before using any new essential oil on your baby. Blissfully Serene does not recommend anyone ingest essential oils.

    With a little knowledge and a few precautions, essential oils can not only be safe for your little ones but very beneficial. Here are 5 best essential oils you need to have on hand to naturally help your baby with ailments, aches, and pains. 

        1. Lavender oil is great versatile oil. It can be combined with other soothing oils to create a blend perfect for a baby massage before bed. It can be used alone with a carrier oil and used to moisturize baby's skin and lull baby to sleep. If the baby is fussy or has colic a nice lavender massage can soothe and calm baby to sleep. Lavender oil acts as an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent and can be placed on bug bites to soothe itchiness and can even prevent certain bugs from biting baby. Making Lavender oil one of our favorites here at Blissfully Serene.

        2. Chamomile oil is perfect for babies experiencing trouble sleeping. It is the perfect oil to help sleep quietly. Chamomile has natural soothing effects and is traditionally used to treat insomnia in babies and adults. It can also relieve colic, help to lower anxiety in little ones and it has an uplifting scent. 

        3. Eucalyptus oil is great for cold winter months. It is a natural expectorant and works well to relieve congestion and minor respiratory issues. Let a hot shower run to produce and add Eucalyptus oil to the shower. This will produce an effective steam in the bathroom which will loosen mucous to allow baby to cough it up as the steam is inhaled. Only hold the baby in the bathroom for a few minutes, just long enough to loosen some mucus.

        4. Tea Tree Oil is powerful oil that should be used with caution on little ones. It is stronger than most oils and should never be used without carrier oil. However, on babies older than 6 months it is a great natural remedy to heal baby's diaper rash. Tea tree has antimicrobial and antifungal, properties and is great for strengthening baby's immune system as well.

        5. Calendula Oil is great oil that is mild and soothing to baby’s skin. It can be safely added to carrier oil for a baby massage or to relieve diaper rash. This soothing essential oil acts as an antiseptic and can heal wounds and soothe eczema.

    Let Blissfully Serene help you create a spa environment in the comfort of your own home. Use these tips to get some much-needed relaxation time without the spa’s hefty price tag.

    A day at the spa can leave you feeling rejuvenated both physically and mentally. Unfortunately, a spa outing can be very expensive, so why not create the ultimate spa day at home? Blissfully Serene offers many Stress relief products to help you indulge in restorative relaxation at home. Turn a peaceful spot in your home into a tranquil Zen zone with the help of essential oils, a foot spa, back massager and much more.

    Daily relaxation is very important when trying to manage stress. Carving out time in your day to do nothing but relax is a necessity for your overall health, not a luxury. What better way to support your physical and mental health than to simply soak in a hot bath with lavender oil diffusing and soft music playing. You can sit in your favorite chair, in a quiet room, soaking your feet and getting a foot massage in your foot spa. Have a spa lunch in your kitchen and afterward enjoy a cup of calming tea while reading your favorite book. The possibilities are vast.

    Based on a recent post on ABC News, “Consumers are increasingly seeking the spa experience as an alternative or complement to other leisure activities.” Bringing the experience to you has many advantages. The number one advantage is convenience. You no longer have to make an appointment, drive to the spa and spend hundreds of dollars to be pampered. We will help you save time and money and pamper yourself right at home. Once you have certain items there is no limit to how many spa days you can have in a week.

    Now that you have the smells, tastes and sounds of the spa in your mind, put on your slippers, grab a cup of your favorite tea and choose an option from the list below to help you find blissful serenity. Pick one for each day of the week. A relaxed you is a productive you!

    1. Massage Must Haves - Neck and shoulder pain is a common problem, affecting people of all ages. Even if you don’t suffer from neck or shoulder pain a portable back, neck and shoulder massager is a great way to help your muscles take a break. It can be portable and used at home, in the office or while traveling. Combine multiple massagers together and soak your feet in a foot spa or sit on a massage cushion all while receiving a neck massage.

    2. Serenity in a bath - Imagine sitting in a hot bubble bath, the air filled with the relaxing scent of Lavender dispersed through your essential oil diffuser. You take a sip from your glass of wine and place it back on your 100% natural bamboo adjustable tray and grab your favorite book. Leaning back against your comfortable eco-friendly bath pillow, you allow the hot water and essential oils to melt your stress away. This is blissful serenity.

    3. Blissful Tea Time - After receiving a massage and experiencing a relaxing bath, have some tea to continue your relaxing day. Add some bliss to your tea time by adding some accessories that will put a smile on your face. Serving your tea from a beautiful Luxury Tea Set and stirring it with a cute teaspoon will be sure to brighten this relaxing time. During tea time take a moment to do some journaling and bring some reflection to your blissful tea time or rake a few rows through a calming Zen garden.

    4. Yoga at Home - You don’t need to go to a studio or class to practice yoga. Grab your eco-friendly yoga mat and flow through a few poses right at home. Before you start blow into your Lovetuner, to help align you with the 528 Hz frequency and prepare you for a successful yoga session. Make sure your diffuser is close by diffusing a calming and relaxing scent. Put on a calm instrumental or your favorite mindfulness soundtrack to set the mood for a restorative yoga session.
