Survive The Holidays With These Magical Essential Oils
Family stress, travel exhaustion and general over-indulgence can turn the holiday season into a period of major overwhelm. While a glass of wine — or three — can normally curb the pain, this year we're also working a more holistic approach to keeping things in check. Essential oils have been touted as therapeutic for thousands of years, and in the recent past this ancient remedy has taken a modern spin, with everyone from our yoga teacher to our CEO raving about their effects on the body.
Be Genki is an Australian naturals company that creates therapeutic essential oil blends to help mitigate the trials of modern life: sleeplessness (thanks, iPad and laptop screens), stress, anxiety, and more. With custom blends like Be Serene, Be Sensual, and Be Radiant, the company offers natural, effective solutions that really work. Geranium, rose otto, patchouli and neroli oils are the essences behind Be Serene, the oil blend that kick-started Be Genki's success. When we're stuck in an endless TSA line at the airport during the holiday travel blitz, you can be sure we'll have a bottle of this calming elixir on hand to keep our jangled nerves at bay.
Another must-pack for the holidays is Be Genki's Be Vibrant blend, which unites peppermint, rosemary, lemon myrtle and eucalyptus oils to create an energizing, motiving mix. It's the perfect hangover fix and the ideal pick-me-up for late-night gift-wrapping sessions. It's also essential for winter morning workouts, when getting out of your cozy bed seems impossible. Do we find these oils essential? Yes — after trying them, you will, too.
