Simple Tips for Peace & Balance

Does your morning start with hitting the snooze button excessively, wishing you could just stay in bed? Do you rush through your morning, grabbing breakfast on the go and spending mindless minutes on social media?

Studies show that the way we begin our day can have a significant impact on how the overall day unfolds. Starting off the day feeling refreshed and relaxed requires a great morning routine. Just small changes in the way you start your day can make a difference.

Here are ten simple ideas to get you started in feeling more productive, confident, and more relaxed throughout your day.

Our Top 10 Ways to Start the Day

  1. Never start the day off with a cell phone in hand. If you need to check morning e-mails or messages, try and wait at least 30 minutes before picking up your phone.
  2. Clear your mind with some morning meditation, journaling, or yoga.
  3. Grab your favorite morning beverage and sit by a window to enjoy a moment free of distractions.
  4. Diffuse some essential oils in your space while you enjoy your morning routine. We love Aromacalm for this. You could also try our Zen Diffusion Blend or even just some simple Lavender.
  5. ake sure to give yourself enough time to get ready. If needed, set your alarm 15 minutes early to enjoy a relaxing morning routine without the rush.
  6. Eat a healthy breakfast and maybe a green juice or smoothie.
  7. Move your body to wake up your muscles and your mind.
  8. Set some intentions for how you want your day to be. Writing them down each morning can be helpful.
  9. Be consistent. This is the only way to begin establishing healthy habits for your morning routine.
  10. Take some deep breaths and express gratitude.

We hope these help you enjoy your mornings and approach your day with a relaxed, refreshed mindset!

What are essential oils?

Tuesday, March 7th, 2023. Author: Liza Docken Essential oils are volatile oils extracted from plants that contain unique and specific constituents. These constituents speak to their therapeutic and aromatic qualities. But how do we get essential oils from plant to bottle? The most common form of essential oil extraction is through steam distillation. Water is heated until it begins to steam. That steam is then carried through a pipe to a chamber where plant material, such as flowers, leaves, bark, or resin has been placed and compacted for maximum steam/plant interaction. As the steam moves through the plant material it extracts the essential oils that live within the plant. The steam carries the volatile oils into the next chamber, called a condenser, where the steam is cooled and run through a series of coils, returning the steam to liquid. That liquid then ends up in the final chamber where the essential oils, due to their hydrophobic nature, float to the surface and are syphoned off and poured into essential oil bottles. What happens to all the water that is left over after the steam distillation process? I am so glad you asked! That water is what is known as hydrosol, or hydrolat, and is water that has moved through plant material, collecting the water-soluble constituents that offer many benefits of the same benefits as Essential Oils. Look for our next blog entry about Hydrosols later this month. Essential oils can also be described as incredibly concentrated plant medicine. With Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) as an example, it takes 2,000 pounds of plant material to make just a gallon of essential oil. Consider a field of lavender and the amount of landmass required to create such a small amount of essential oil. It is the impetus of Pranarōm’s dedication to certified organic essential oils. Essential oils have the ability to impact us both physically and emotionally, giving EOs a broad reach in the health and wellness industry. Known primarily for their aromatic qualities, essential oils used in an ultrasonic diffuser offer many ways to transform the atmosphere, from clearing the air to uplifting your mood. The diffuser breaks down the molecule size of the aromatic oil for better dispersal and more lasting scent. These aromatic power-houses also work wonderfully for cleaning, DIY personal products, and as additives to liquid soaps, lotions, and shampoos. Essential oils should be used in dilution when applied to the skin, making any of these applications an ideal way to use essential oils in your everyday routine/life. Just a few drops in your liquid hand soap can up the wow factor on scent and cleansing abilities. Visit Pranarō to see the many single notes, wellness blends, and diffusion blends available.
