The holidays have really crept up on us this year, haven’t they? I feel like it was just summer time a few weeks ago. Since the days are becoming busier with the holidays approaching I look forward to finding ways to unwind and calm my spirit down. My everyday life is fairly chaotic, as I’m sure most of yours are. But, with the holidays right here upon us, schedules are in overdrive! I also live in a house full of big dogs. While I love my 7 furbabies dearly, the noise and chaos they add to the household can sometimes make me think I am losing my mind! From stress to chaos from the holidays and just ordinary life, I need a way to escape for a little “me time”! How do I find it? Well, I have found these amazing Nature’s Bounty® Earthly Elements™ products that can take help me take on a mini vacation right in my own bathroom! Check them out below, along with these tips that I use to help find “me time” among all of the chaos.
How I Find ‘Me Time’ During the Holidays
Step One: Escape to the bathroom! I say escape, because if the dogs notice where I am heading they will be right there with me. Once inside, I can lock the door and begin creating my own personal spa and oasis!
Step Two: Run hot bath water in the bathtub. I like my water scalding hot, so I run it hot and then let it cool down just a tiny bit before enjoying. I know ‘hot’ water isn’t suppose to be good. But, hey, this is “me time” and I can do what I want right?
Step Three: Add Nature’s Bounty Earthly Elements essential oil to my bathwater to enjoy the ultimate escape. I add a few drops to my bath water to get that spa experience. I love that Nature’s Bounty Earthly Elements creates essential oils that has its own unique aroma.

Nature’s Bounty Earthly Elements Peppermint Essential Oil
My second favorite Nature’s Bounty Earthly Elements essential oil is the Peppermint, especially if I need a pick me up! The sweet smell of peppermint fills the air and as I relax in the warm water the Peppermint essential revitalizes and me and and helps me feel energized. I feel refreshed and ready to re-enter the world of chaos.
Step Four: Add a few drops of my favorite Nature’s Bounty Earthly Elements to my diffuser. A few drops and I feel as though I’m in a tropical paradise. I keep my little Earthly Elements diffuser in my bathroom. It is the perfect size for my “me time” escapes!
Earthly Elements essential oils can be used alone or you can blend the essential oils to find your own personal favorite blend!
If I’m really feeling the holiday stress, I mix my Nature’s Bounty Earthly Elements with a carrier oil such as Nature’s Bounty Earthly Elements Sweet Almond Oil and then I have my own massage oil. After relaxing in my personal spa, I can have the hubs massage my tense muscles with the Sweet Almond Oil mixed with a little of my favorite essential oil. It’s pure bliss, I’m telling you!
Step Five: I take the time to enjoy myself. Enjoy the “me time” you have set aside due to the busyness and craziness of the holidays. Even if the holidays are non-stop, you don’t need to be that way. Enjoy your holiday “me time” and take everything else as it comes.
