My Soy-Called Life: Soy Candles

Brianne

Stressing too much over your crush, friends, and the meaning of life? Ahh, to be a teenager again. Before you do something drastic (like dye your hair fire engine red) chill out with some aromatherapy soy candles. Essoya Candles are all-natural organic candles that soothe your aching mind with essential oils. They are made from a GMO-free soy base, which means no genetically modified ingredients are used – only natural ones from the earth. Plus, the wicks are unbleached cotton and hemp. Because of the natural ingredients, Essoya’s candles have some of the longest burning times available – from 45 to 500 hours! Not only are the candles good for the environment, but they are easy on the eyes and your nose. They come in all shapes and sizes along with a pallet of colors and soothing scents like cedarwood, cinnamon, sage, lemon, peppermint, and lavender. *Sigh* … no more drama.

Holistic Week — Makes Perfect Scents: DIY Aromatherapy

Brianne

Want a practical way to ease your pain and make your house smell nice, too? Here is a smart idea: DIY Aromatherapy. For centuries, people have been using plants and herbs, including essential oils, for mental and physical well-being. Today, we are going to show you how to make aromatherapy oil and turn it into a sachet. You can place these uplifting scent-filled bags around your house in a bowl, in your sock drawer, or just keep on-hand to sniff your cares away.’

Aromatherapy Oil

  • 1 clean, empty jam jar

  • 1 cup plants or herbs (try rose, lavender, rosemary but avoid these hazardous plants)

  • 1 cup organic almond oil

Clean your jam jar by washing and boiling in a pot for 5 minutes. Remove with tongs and set aside.

Stuff with plants and herbs of your choosing and add almond oil. Seal with the lid and place in a warm, sunny place like by a window or outside.

After a few days, remove the plants and herbs and discard. Pour oil in a new, clean jar and store in a cool place.

Aromatherapy Sachet

  • Homemade essential oil

  • Organic cotton balls

  • Lightweight scrap fabric from an old t-shirt or other clothing

  • Ribbon

Place a few drops of essential oil on the organic cotton balls. Put in the center of your scrap fabric and fold up the corners to make a pouch. Tie with ribbon.

If you want more of a pillow-like sachet, reverse two pieces of square fabric so the outsides are facing in. Sew the outside edges leaving one inch open. Turn right side out and stuff in the essential oil cotton balls. Hand-sew the last inch and decorate with ribbon. These make a great gift!

Greenista Cocktail Factoid: Aromatherapy can be used to combat certain ailments like aches, pains, and stress. By using essential oils to treat your problem, you’re avoiding chem-filled medications that are harmful to your body and the planet.
