S+F Series: Kickin’ stress to the curb with lavender oil


I am a total stress ball. I’m not really sure why I get stressed or how it even happens. Most of the time I don’t even know I’m stressed/anxious until I get the physical symptoms. + those stink.

Stress IS stupid. + can be unhealthy (some stress is good so make sure you know the difference!).

Stress is also inevitable. Which is why you want to make sure you do things that make you happy + keep you calm. Be proactive + figure those out nowwww. It’s im-por-tan-te.

Stress can cause or increase many different problems including: pain, heart disease, digestive issues, sleep issues, weight issues, depression, autoimmune diseases, + skin conditions.

Ain’t nobody got time for that^^^^

My #1 de-stressor is exercise but sometimes not even that helps so I’ve come up with a few other things that really do help.



A huge one for me is lavender oil. I love to put this on right before bed. I just dab a bit into the palm of my hand + onto my wrists + rub in. Then I put my hands up to my face + inhale slowly a few times.  Use caution here as it can burn the heck outta your nose!

Seriously though, it’s like an automatic relaxant. BAM. You can feel every part of your tense body loosen. It’s one of the bestttt feelings in the world.


Lavender oil has so many other benefits aside from calming you down + helping you sleep. Lavender oil can also be used for bee stings, cuts/burns, eczema, nausea, nosebleeds, chapped skin/lips (why I put in on my hands as well), hay fever, dandruff + cold sores.

I also bought a spritzer to spritz some onto my sheets/pillows. Welcome to total relaxation.

BRB, the lavender oil is calling.
