9 Home Essentials for the Perfect Mind, Body and Spirit Connection
The most effective wellness routines are those that fit easily into your daily life. Here are 9 home essentials for the perfect mind, body and spirit connection and will help you transform your space into a oasis where you can (sometimes literally) breathe easier.
Essential Oils & Diffuser: Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants. Unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence. And when used in a diffuser, the air in a room is filled with tiny, breathable particles of beneficial—giving the room a calmer, more pleasant-smelling ambiance. Different essential oils have different benefits. For instance, Peppermint is used to boost energy and aid digestion, while Tea Tree is used to fight infections and boost immunity. Hazel’s Honey Tree subscription deliveries will quite often include some great smelling, wellness-promoting essential oils.
Electric/Alkaline Herbs: Dr. Sebi, the world-renowned pathologist, herbalist, biochemist, and naturalist’s approach to disease relies on natural botanical remedies to cleanse and detoxify the body, bringing it back to a more alkaline state from the acidity that causes disease and pathology. These alkaline herbs follow Dr. Sebi's guidelines and are a great way to start or end everyday: burdock, chamomile, elderberry, fennel, ginger, raspberry, and tila.
Plants: Good health depends on more than just diet and exercise. Without a doubt your environment affects your health too, and the right houseplant can actually make a big difference in your mood, your stress level, your sleep quality and even your breathing. For instance spider plants are great for removing formaldehyde from the air in your home, lavender is a flowering plant that has a very gentle and pleasant aroma best known for its stress-relieving mental benefits, and peace lilies is a master of air pollutant removal – working hard to absorb ammonia, benzene, xylene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene throughout your home. Adding a houseplant or two is an easy way to make the air inside your home cleaner and definitely more beautiful.
Sage Smudge Sticks: Burning sage, also known as smudging, involves literally burning the sage leaves and letting the smoke purify the air in your home. Safely burning sage may also improve your mood or sleep, dispel negative energy, or cleanse certain objects. Make sure you've opened a door or window before burning your sage. Slowly walk around your space and allow the smoke to waft around. Guide the smoke—and the bad energy—toward the open windows or a door, so it can escape
Reusable Persona Water Container: Investing in a reusable water bottle not only helps the environment but makes staying hydrated easier and more top of mind. Drinking water helps to moisturize skin, increase its elasticity, and replenish skin cells and tissues. And drinking water helps lubricate joints in the body, which prevents muscle cramping and reduces joint pain. So, keep your water container cleaned daily and filled with the earth most refreshing drink.
Journal: Research shows that keeping a journal is great for the mind, body, and soul. Writing down your thoughts, dreams, feelings, and ideas is a healthy and beneficial practice for overall wellness. Journaling prioritize fears and concerns and allows space for positive encouragement and self-talk. Get yourself a beautiful journal that makes you want to write in it and just start with daily affirmations, goals, notes, and ideas. Watch how your journaling starts to improve your mood, memory, and mental well-being.
Candles: Used as a source of light and illuminations throughout the years, candles today symbolize celebration, signify romance, soothe the senses, define ceremony and accent the style of home decors. Candles are known for their soothing, healing properties and are often used by therapists, such as massage therapists, to create a peaceful ambiance in their therapy rooms. Whatever your desire for the soft flickering of candlelight, get yourself some candles for your home.
Juicer: Whether you are seeking clear vibrant skin, increased energy, or better immunity, fresh pressed or squeezed juices are brimming with delicious nutrition to boost your health and happiness. Juicers come in many different types. Reamers are used for juicing citrus fruits and can be manual or electric. Other types can juice a wider variety of fruits and vegetables. Centrifugal juicers cut up produce with a flat blade and then spin it to separate the juice from the pulp. They're generally affordable and easy to use. A masticating juicer, also called a slow juicer or cold press, uses a single auger to crush produce into smaller sections and then squeezes out the juice along a static screen while expelling the pulp. These are somewhat more expensive but can get you more juice with less pulp and less foam. Triturating juicers, also called dual-gear or twin-gear juicers, use two blades to crush and press produce. These juicers can be pricier but are very efficient. Research what works best based on your budget and happy juicing.
Relaxation Zone: Whether you use it to practice yoga, meditate or simply steal a few moments of quiet, a dedicated relaxation zone is something everyone can use. It doesn’t have to be a very big area, but just make sure to keep this chill space uncluttered and comfortable.
