Picture this: you lay down in bed after a long day, close your eyes, and toss and turn for the next three hours.  Sound familiar?  Anxiety can affect your mind and body, especially when you lay down at night and try to sleep!  We’ve all been there, but we don’t have to be!  Here are three night remedies to reduce anxiety.

  • If you know you get anxious late at night or before you go to sleep, purchase a lavender candle or lavender-scented room spray.  Light your candle 30 min before bed so your room is filled with a lavender aroma when you lay down to sleep!  Chelsea Crockett - Hot BathIf you forget to light your candle or don’t want to fall asleep with it burning, spray around your bed with lavender room spray.  The scent of lavender is proven to lower blood pressure and reduce anxiety!  Maybe even put a drop of lavender essential oil on your bed, pillow, or skin.
  • Take a hot bath!  Hot baths are already known for their relaxing aromas, but adding just a simple ingredient can make them 10x more calming.  What is it you ask?  Epsom salts!  These release an inorganic chemical called magnesium sulfate which has shown to lower blood pressure and reduce anxiety.  It truly calms you down!
  • Ever heard of chamomile tea?  Most people use it to make them sleep, but it works for anxiety just as well!  It supposedly releases chemicals that help you to relax.  There are many studies that have shown a dramatic decrease in anxiety for those who drink chamomile tea daily!

Which remedy works best for you?  Try them out and let me know!

How often do you step back and give yourself some “me” time?  Don’t get me wrong, I love being with my friends and fam, but sometimes it feels good to be independent and spend some time with numero uno. Time alone is a great way to reconnect with yourself, destress, and feel refreshed. Here are 5 fun things you can do on your own to treat yo self!

  1. Take yourself on a date: Is there a place where you live that you have always wanted to go to eat but have never gotten the chance? Take yourself! Treat yourself to a nice meal, take as long as you want, order whatever you want, you don’t have anyone to worry about or impress! Bring a good book and enjoy yourself.
  2. Take a loooong bath: Grab a good book, light a few candles, grab some bubble bath and a bath bomb, and hop in the tub. Take the longest bath you want and enjoy uninterrupted bliss.FullSizeRender (40)
  3. Lose yourself in a bookstore: There are so many cute bookstores out there, small ones with lots of personality or big ones with lots of choices! Get lost in the shelves and find a book that you love.
  4. Have a spa day: Go get a massage, or save some cash and do an at-home spa day. Grab a face mask and hair mask from Walmart and pamper yourself DIY style.
  5. Complete projects you’ve put off: Speaking of DIY, finish those projects you’ve been putting off so that you don’t have to worry about them anymore. Whether it is finishing homework, updating your resume, finishing a DIY craft, whatever it may be, finish it! You will feel accomplished and productive, plus you reap the benefits of the finished project!

Treat yo-self to some “me” time every once in a while. It is good for the soul!

Detox baths are not only good for the body but for the soul as well :)! Some people unaware of the benefits and dangers of detox baths may not ever try one, or may even overuse them. I wanted to share a little insight on the pros and cons of detoxing. The power of a detox bath can be stronger than you think!

Let’s start with the benefits. To put it in one sentence, detox baths improve your health and well-being. Detoxification is crucial for your body, Chelsea Crockett - Detox Benefitsespecially your immune system. It eliminates toxins and other wastes that your body doesn’t need. Because our environment is continuously getting dirtier and more polluted, the amount of toxins in the air is increasing. Our body gets rid of wastes on its own, but detox baths can help speed up and enhance those processes!

Although detoxing is good for the body, it can potentially be harmful, as well. The saying “too much of anything can be bad” can definitely be applied here. Taking one of these baths should not be done daily. About 1-3 times a week is the recommendation based on your body. Since your body is working hard to rid itself of toxins, you may experience light-headedness or dizziness.

If you’ve never tried a detox bath, I recommend you give it a shot! It’ll help flush out any of the “yuck” you might have in your system!

Creative Ways to Use Hair Conditioner

Hair conditioner is an everyday part of life.  You get in the shower, shampoo your hair, and then apply conditioner, right?  Conditioner is so important for silky smooth hair, but did you know it has a multitude of other benefits?  Surprisingly, there are multiple ways to use your conditioner not only for your hair, but for different beauty purposes as well!  Check out the new and unique ways to use your hair conditioner.

  • If you have a dry scalp, try a head massage with conditioner.  Get your hair wet with hot water (this can be done inside or outside of the shower), apply a generous amount of conditioner to your roots, and start massaging away!  Applying pressure will cause the natural oils in your hair to circulate and the conditioner to get deep down into your skin.  Goodbye dry scalp!
  • Fluff up your makeup brushes!  After washing your makeup brushes, rub in conditioner to the bristles and rinse out thoroughly.  This will make each brush much softer.
  • Defeat frizzy hair!  If your hair is frizzy on a particular day or it happens to be humid out, rub a small amount of conditioner into your hands as if it was lotion and pat down the frizzy parts of your hair.  The conditioner will help to tame pesky hair.
  • Use it as eye makeup remover!Chelsea Crockett- removing eye makeup
  • Add it to your next bubble bath!  Conditioner can act as a sort of moisturizing oil for the skin.  When you add the bubble bath to your next bath, add a small amount of conditioner as well.  This will make your skin extra soft.
  • Have you ever gotten a ring stuck on your finger?  With a dab of conditioner the ring will slide right off!
  • Conditioner can act as grease to unzip a jammed zipper.  Add a little to the zipper using a cotton swab and the zipper will come undone just like that!

Crazy how much conditioner can help you out in situations other than tangled hair!  Next time you need a quick beauty fix, see if conditioner can help you do the trick.  You may be surprised!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Laying in a warm bath after a long day is such a great way to unwind and relax.  With my busy life, a long bath is much needed every once in a while.  I love taking time for myself and relaxing!  Whenever I have a good amount of time before bed, a detox bath is one of my favorite things to do.  Chelsea Crockett- detox bathDetox baths clean out your pores by eliminating toxins and soaking in minerals.  I will teach you how to create a soothing detox bath to get your body back in shape!

Make sure you set aside 40 minutes to perform a detox bath properly.  Start with filling up your bathtub with sizzling hot water.  You want to sweat!  Add two cups of Epsom salt to the water.  It’s really cheap, about $2.00 at your local grocery store!  Next, add about 1 ½ cups of baking soda to the water.  This mixture will clean out your pores.  The next two ingredients are optional.  Small amounts of ground ginger can be added to the bath to increase sweating, which causes toxins to be released.  Be careful though, ginger may turn your skin red for a little while!  Aromatherapy oils can also be added for a sweet scent, leaving you and your body relaxed and smelling wonderful.  Swish all the ingredients together and enjoy!  You will get really hot, but you’ll feel great after!

Drink lots of water and head to bed when you finish with your bath.  You’ll wake up feeling amazing, trust me!

Enjoy!
