How to Use Essential Oils in Your Car

Essential oils are currently all the rage, and the interest in their abilities to positively impact one’s life, doesn’t appear to be waning. You can utilize essential oils in roll on form to take their therapeutic benefits wherever you go. You can also wear special jewelry that makes them more mobile. Aside from these options, there are a couple of ways you can employ the use of essential oils in your car to reap their therapeutic benefits while driving.

 Road rage, car sickness, drowsiness, stress and anxiety are all negative emotions that drivers deal with on a daily basis. There are essential oils that can combat all of these emotions including Frankincense, ginger, cinnamon, eucalyptus, pine and more. It’s important to stay away from oils that have the more calming effects like lavender and chamomile. A little bit of introductory reading into the world of essential oils can open up a whole new understanding of the powers that these substances have.

 Several companies make diffusers designed specifically for your car. Many of these designs plug into one of the vents either in the front or back seat of the vehicle. There are also designs powered by your car battery that plug into the adapter in your vehicle. These are obviously a much better use for that adapter than a cigarette lighter ever was. You can cross reference the compatibility of these devices by reading the specs of your car at Cars.com.

 There are also a handful of handmade ways to introduce essential oils into your car. You can create a small, decorative piece made of absorbent felt to hand from your rear view mirror. Keep a bottle of your favorite oil handy and regularly dose the felt with the oil. It should hold the aroma for an extended period of time before it needs recharging.

Easy Ways to Relax From the Stresses of a Modern Lifestyle

There is no doubt that the more advanced culture becomes, the more complicated and nuanced society becomes with it. While there are numerous effects of this shift, one of the changes felt by almost all everybody is a rise in stress levels.

Whether it’s at the grocery store dropping an item or getting the wrong change, it can seem like the smallest problem is all it takes to start a stress-rage.

If you suffer from these moments and are looking for ways to change your lifestyle, below are some great relaxation techniques.

Yoga

While sitcoms would have you believe that Yoga is only for Moms who have been exercising for years and look like they just stepped out of a Yoga clothing catalog, the opposite is actually true. Yoga can benefit anybody who undertakes the exercise and is an activity which you can do at a studio with other people or privately in your own space. Through stretches and breathing, Yoga calms your heart rate and your nerves, helping you to relax your mind.

Shopping

Often referred to as Retail Therapy, shopping has long been a serious way to reduce stress. While you may think it’s just another fad designed to make people buy more, the act of shopping can have serious positive impacts on your health. The next time that you are at work and feel like you can’t take the day anymore, open up your browser and take a look through the Groupon Coupons page for Barney’s New York. Once you see something you like, buy it! Straight away! Now you can spend the rest of the day excited to receive your new purchase instead of stressing over purchase orders!

Boxing

Okay, maybe this list is getting a little unconventional, but that doesn’t mean that it’s going off topic. If you haven’t taken your stress out on a boxing bag before, then you don’t know what you are missing out on. Instead of yelling at a delivery driver the next time you get the wrong change, book in and join a boxing class at your local fitness studio and take out your life frustrations on a boxing bag!

Dancing

Have you ever danced sad? How about angry? Of course not! Because every time that you dance, you forget about your problems and you let the music take you away while you shake your body in enjoyment! For this reason, consider dancing as a stress relieving tool. The next time that you can feel your stress levels rising, take yourself to a private space and dance to a song or two. Of course, it’s best to choose a high-energy song to really snap you out of your bad mood and change your course.

Just because your phone won’t’ stop ringing or your unread email list won’t stop growing doesn’t mean that you need to live a life of constant stress. Keep this list close to your workstation, and the next time that you can feel your anger and stress levels rise, take it out and give some thought to a stress reliever technique.
