Are you a morning person or a night person? I tend to be a morning person, but on those mornings when I don’t go to bed early enough or I am woken by doggies in the night, I need a large cup of coffee and a ‘refreshing’ splash of cold water on my face to get going.
I LOVE the cup of coffee, but I could do without the ‘refreshing’ splash of water. Until I discovered a Wake-up Spritzer made with essential oils.
It was super easy to put together. I followed this tutorial, but substituted my own essential oils for the one’s they suggested, but I didn’t have. I came up with a blend of peppermint, spearmint, orange, lime and lemon. Incredibly uplifting! I think I’ll also look up essential oils that promote rest and relaxation and make a spritzer for bed time.
They didn’t say to do this in the tutorial, but I think I’ll store mine in the fridge to get the added ‘benefit’ of a cold spritz. It’s momentarily uncomfortable, but certainly wakes you up.
I think this would be a wonderful addition to a gift basket dedicated to pampering. Maybe this, the body butter I’m making tomorrow (spoiler alert) and the foot soak I made yesterday. There’s nothing like being relaxed, energized and moisturized all at the same time.
Know what wakes me up in the morning? A refreshing walk… nothing like it to wake you right up!
