Self-Care Rituals to Relieve Stress

Turn to Essential Oils

Calm the senses and clear your mind with essential oils. Spraying a blend of essential oils onto the skin throughout the day is a blissful ritual that not only leaves you smelling gorgeous, it’s an aromatherapeutic way to lift your mood and awaken the mind. Having a citrus essential oil blend is perfect for uplifting your mood. Keep in your handbag, by your bedside table or at your desk at work so it’s ready-to-go when you need a pick-me-up.

Massaging the Pressure Points on Your Hands

This is a simple ritual for at work (or home) that can ease tension from building up. We particularly like this for days when a lot of time is spent on the computer, and you feel your hands are cramped, sore and need a bit of rejuvenation! Take your Urban Rituelle Hand Cream of choice and massage into your hands, focusing on the pressure points (especially near the thumb). The pressure point by your thumb can be found in the firm skin between the thumb and index finger.

Slowly inhale and exhale, releasing the stress of the day, and work the cream into your hands in slow circular motions until blended in. Glide any remaining hand cream up the palms towards the tip of your fingers and then motion out. The action is a freeing release of “letting go”, almost as if you are shooing stress out of the body. Not only does this massage provide an aromatherapy experience, it hydrates and nourishes the skin. If your body feels relaxed, your mind feels relaxed as well.

Soak in a Hot Bath

Nothing beats drawing a hot bath after a long day! Stress can cause the muscles of the body to contract, so a nice hot bath can relieve that feeling and keep muscles loose. A relaxed body helps the mind feel relaxed too. We personally love a hot bath filled with bubbles, it’s a simple way to transform your bathroom to feeling like you’re at a spa retreat. Choose your preferred Urban Rituelle Body Wash and pump while the water is running. Swirl so it can start to create a small layer of bubbles. Massage the wash onto your skin also and

Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that can benefit your emotional well-being. If you are feeling stressed, consider trying meditation – even just a few minutes in meditation can restore a feeling of serenity. We find it easier to meditate if we are in a space that inspires tranquillity. We’re big believers in using a fragrant reed diffuser to transform the ambience in a space. It’s a simple way to reinvigorate a room with a constant flow of fragrance. We love choosing a diffuser with an essential oil blend for an aromatherapy experience that creates our very own therapeutic retreat.

Light a Scented Soy Candle

If you are feeling stressed or even just a bit sluggish, lighting a scented soy candle is a simple way to inspire tranquillity.

Fragrance is something that can easily stimulate a change in mood, so we like to pick our scented soy candle based on how we want to feel throughout the day. When stressed and sluggish, we suggest opting for something invigorating like a citrus blend. We also like essential oil blends for a true aromatherapy experience.
