Oh Lavender + Peppermint!

by Diamond Downs

Hey girl heeeyyy!!! Sooo..let’s talk about some of the side effects of being a full time mom and hustler!  Side note: As I’m writing this, I think I like “Hustler” as my professional title! 😎Everyday, I’m hustling as a product maker and businesswoman. 🏃🏽‍♀️💨 However, what comes along with this territory are feelings of exhaustion, mental drain, anxiety, frustration and the list goes on...Two particular essential oils and scents that help relax me are lavender and peppermint. When building a business and raising a toddler —there are slim to no breaks—depending upon how big your goals are. However,  you can achieve anything when you have daily things that help you recharge. Have you ever heard of the saying, “ I’m on my second wind?”....Well, literally, I ask God for six of those winds because most days I’m moving from the time I get up to the next wee hours of the morning. 

So, let’s talk a bit about why I love and recommend the mixture of lavender and peppermint! Lavender promotes tranquility. It’s a calming herb that is used to naturally alleviate insomnia, anxiety, depression and stress. On the other hand, peppermint is a cross between water mint and spearmint. Maybe that is why it has such a cooling effect 🤔. Peppermint boosts energy levels. When inhaled, it helps improve memory and alertness. This is exactly why we call our peppermint/lavender shower bomb, “Recharge!”

I chose to create aromatherapy products because they are much needed in my everyday lifestyle. I light candles not only for scent throws but to relax and meditate. I use shower bombs to help enhance my showers into a therapeutic experience. I’m able to use air freshener sprays in my car and any on-the-go space. 

I don’t know if it’s more of a psychological thing, but the aroma from the lavender and peppermint eases up any intensity I’m feeling and relaxes my mind!

From one single mom to another-- Don't let your light dim!

P.S. Take my advice and get you some therapeutic products that will help refuel your energy levels so you can stay on your grind! It's so important to give yourself moments in a day to un-wind and ease your mind--even if it's for a whole 10 minutes!
