Home Remedies for Relaxation

 

Relaxation is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. But it can be difficult to achieve if you are a high-stress person or have a very busy lifestyle. There are many natural substances and practices that can help you achieve calm and serenity. Below is a list of things you can try to bring some calm into your life.

 

DO NOT START ANY SUPPLEMENT, TREATMENT OR MEDICATION WITHOUT CONSULTING YOUR MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL.

1- Chamomile.  This herb has been used for centuries to naturally induce feelings of calm and relaxation.It is a caffeine free herb that is filled with anti-oxidants. Research studies have also shown that it can help manage insomnia and help promote healthy sleeping habits.

2- Meditation. Mindfulness and focusing on positive is a necessary step in finding peace. Spending a few minutes of each day meditating and clearing your mind may help you stay calmer and feel more relaxed. Sitting in silence and mentally focusing on happy thoughts, spending time in nature or praying to a deity are great ways to meditate.

3- Essential Oils. There are hundreds of essential oil options, blends and remedies for just about every ailment. A holistic health practitioner or aromatherapist can help guide you to oils to improve your well-being. Essential oils can be applied in various different ways and some can even be taken internally for medicinal purposes.

(Do not ingest any essential oil without first checking with your physician, as some essential oils can interact with medications or certain conditions. Secondly, be sure you are using a bio-friendly, 100% therapeutic grade oil. Do not ingest a low quality oil, as they may be filled with other products and not 100% pure.)

 

Ways to use Essential Oils-

Aromatic-  Using essential oils in a diffusor or wax burner is a great way to promote wellness and improve the air quality in your home, car or office. Diffused essential oils can be used to treat a wide variety of issue such as: reducing anxiety, creating focus or increasing libido just to name a few!

Application- Applying essential oils to tense or painful areas or using products such as creams or soaps infused with your choice blend is a great way to enjoy the benefits of various oils. Many holistic practitioners and massage therapists apply essential oils to pressure points during treatment; creating a healing effect for their patients.

Baths- Soaking in essential oils is a great way to achieve maximum benefits from the natural healing power of various herbs, flowers and plants!  There are many wonderful products such as essential oil infused bath bombs, soaks and body washes that can help you incorporate better wellness in your personal hygiene.

Compression- Essential oils added to a warm, wet washcloth can be used as a compress when applied to painful or swollen areas of the body. Essential oil compresses have been widely used to treat menstrual cramps, tense muscles, headaches and post-exercise soreness.

Tips for Better Sleep

Tips for Better Sleep

 

Sleep is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, but sometimes it can be hard to fall asleep and get the recommended eight hours of rest.  Below is a list of great tips to help you get better sleep.

Set a Sleep Schedule-

Our bodies get used to routines and setting a sleep schedule will help stimulate our body’s natural circadian rhythm to function properly. Setting a set bed time where you lay down at the same time every night will help you create healthy sleep patterns.

Avoid Electronics an Hour before Bed-

How many nights do we stay up way too late because we were scrolling through social media on our phones? A helpful tip to get more rest is to plug your phone up on the other side of the room before bed and leave it there until morning. This will limit the temptation to spend unnecessary time on social media and promote relaxation.

Dim the Lights in the Evening-

Our bodies naturally respond to light stimulation, so by dimming the lights a few hours before bed you send a signal to your brain that sleep is coming. This teaches your body to wind down and can help you fall asleep easier.  Natural light sources such as Himalayan salt lamps can provide a natural glow that will not keep you awake.  Using these in the evenings instead of traditional incandescent bulbs promotes wellness.

Drink an Herbal Tea-

There are many natural teas that can assist you in relaxing before bedtime. Teas such as chamomile and lavender mixed with honey have been used for centuries to promote calmness after a rough day.  Drinking a warm tea before bed is a great way to help you relax.

(Disclaimer- Do not start any herbal remedy without first speaking to your doctor. This is not a suggestion for medical care.)

Take a Warm Bath-

Heat is a natural muscle relaxant. Taking a warm bath before bed can help ease you into a more relaxed state. You can also add comforting elements such as bath soaks, essential oils or epsom salt into your bath water for extra pampering.

Listen to Calming Music-

Enjoying instrumental piano music or listening to your favorite band before bed can help you de-stress and fall asleep faster. A good practice is to listen to calming music for at least 15 minutes as you lay down for bed. This can help you unwind and fall asleep easier. There are also audio options created for inducing sleep such as guided imagery, biblical meditation or binaural beats.  

Create a Comforting Sleep Space-

Trying to fall asleep in a messy, chaotic space can inhibit your ability to rest. A helpful sleeping tip is to create a calming space that will allow you to drift into sleep easily.  You can do this by organizing your bedroom, having a comfortable mattress and pillow and also making sure your room is a nice, cool temperature.

 

At White Naturals, we are dedicated to making sure our clients can live their best life possible. We hope these tips help you find better, more restful sleep!

Summer Skin Care Secrets

Summer Skin Care Secrets

Summer is a time for fun in the sun and enjoying warm temperatures outside! But summer activities such as exposure to excess sunlight and chemicals in pool water can damage your skin.

Below is a list of skin care secrets to help you keep beautiful looking skin no matter what the season!

Be Smart with Sun Exposure-

We all love to soak up the sun, but excessive sun exposure raises the risk of melanoma, a type of skin cancer. It is important to apply sunscreen and utilize shading devices such as hats, sun-visors and umbrellas when you will be in direct sunlight for long periods of time. The sun’s rays are the hottest during midday, so you might consider planning your outdoor activities for the late afternoon or evening.

 

Wear Summer Appropriate Clothing-

Certain fabrics such as flannel and polyester are not heat friendly and should be avoided during the summer time. When your body becomes overheated, you sweat and these fabrics do not allow your skin to “breathe.” This can cause a build up of bacteria on the skin and lead to break outs.  During summer, fabrics such as cotton should be worn. Cotton is a light, breathable fabric choice that will not harbor heat like polyester and flannel fabrics do.

Use Summer Specific Make-Up-

Certain cosmetic items do not withstand summer stressors and can end up making you look like a melted wax figure. It is important to choose makeup products that not only withstand things such as sweat and water exposure, but also offer healthy benefits to your skin. There are many options such as natural mineral powders that will give you flawless coverage while also nurturing your skin. You can also wear foundation that contains sunscreen for added protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Establish a Daily Purifying Routine

Sunscreen, makeup and sweat can build up in your skin’s pores and cause you to break out and look older. It is important to establish a daily routine to cleanse your skin. Products such as our natural, organic exfoliating scrubs and cleansing charcoal facial mask are premium options that will help you keep your skin fresh and clean. For optimal, clear skin, always wash your face before bed and never go to sleep without washing off makeup or sunscreen.

Stay Hydrated-

Your skin contains 64% water, so without proper hydration, it will not look it’s best.  It is recommended that adults drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. Drinking appropriate amounts of water while you enjoy the summer heat will not only make your skin look better, but will also prevent harmful things such as heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Take a thermos or bottle of water with you as you enjoy summer activities and remember to stay hydrated!

Pick the Right Sunscreen-

Choose a sunscreen product with an SPF of at least 15 or higher. It is also important to choose a sunscreen with as little chemicals in it as possible. There are options for making your own DIY, natural sunscreen as well. Remember to apply sunscreen thoroughly to all sun exposed areas. Areas such as the ears, nose, face, arms and back typically are the most exposed, so be sure you are covering these areas with appropriate amounts of sunscreen. Re-apply as needed after water exposure and sweating.

 

Remembering these tips will help you achieve the great summer skin. Don’t forget to take care of your skin this summer!

Reasons You Should Exfoliate Your Skin

Reasons to Exfoliate your Skin!

You don’t have to spend thousands on expensive skin care products or cosmetic procedures to get more youthful skin.  You can easily exfoliate your way to better looking skin! Below is a list of a few of the amazing benefits you can get from adding exfoliation to your beauty routine!

 

Look Younger!

 

When you exfoliate regularly, this helps to stimulate collagen, which is the main structural protein found in your skin.  Collagen helps to improve the skin’s texture and tightness. So, when you promote your skin’s collagen production by exfoliating, your skin can have a more youthful appearance.

Have a Healthier Lymphatic System!

The lymphatic system is a network of vessels that transport a clear fluid called lymph.  It is part of the circulatory system and a vital part of the immune system. Exfoliating stimulates lymphatic drainage and promotes blood flow, which can help the body release built up lymph fluid. This helps the body remove toxins and promotes healthy blood flow.

Prevent Acne!

Acne breakouts are one of the last things anyone wants to deal with. It is not just a problem for teenagers, adults can get breakouts too.  A gentle exfoliant used daily can help cleanse your pores and prevent breakouts, no matter what your age is.

Improve Skin’s Moisture!

Dry skin can appear flakey and make you look older. Exfoliating can get rid of dead skin cells and allow healthier skin cells to replace them. Gently exfoliating your skin then applying a moisturizing, natural cream can renew even the driest of skin!

 

White Naturals is proud to offer a line of premium, natural exfoliating products such as our pink salt scrub, charcoal detox scrub and our 24K gold scrub!
