Dreams of an hour at the spa might seem far away, but you might find that the power of essential oils is exactly what you need to create a space to help you relax at home. We take a look at the best essential oils along with five great tips to help you relax and unwind in your own space.

We caught up with Raww Cosmetics to hear more about their range of calming essential oils blends and products, plus the benefits they can have on our overall well-being.

Which essential oils are relaxing?

Relaxing essential oils for aromatherapy

To relax at home, look for aromatherapy blends that contain any of these ingredients, or diffuse these pure essential oils to find your zen:

  • Lavender is a superstar at helping to relieve stress and one of the best essential oils for sleep.
  • Frankincense has been used throughout the ages to create a sense of peace and tranquillity, ease stress and halt mood swings.
  • Cedarwood is traditionally used in aromatherapy to provide relief from coughs and colds. Its forest-like aroma will also help bring harmony to both body and mind.

Raww Cosmetics has a whole collection of blissful and soothing essential oil blends to choose from. Explore their Zen Time range made up of products including mists and body oils created with their super zen combo of Resin, Wood and Citrus to help you release stress and feel more relaxed. You will find scents of Frankincense, Patchouli and Orange which are all great for creating a sense of peace and harmony, bringing you back to the moment.

We also love the Fresh Home Vibes Pure Essential Oil Blend. Perfect for those days when you’re in a bit of a funk, this super uplifting combo of Lime, Lemon, Lemongrass, Geranium and Spearmint Oils will cleanse the air in your home and create a fresh, clean, citrusy vibe!

Tip #1: Diffuse essential oils with an aromatherapy diffuser

The easiest way to experience these relaxing oil blends while you’re at home is to use an aromatherapy diffuser. Raww’s Small Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser ($49.99) is BPA-free and works on the vibration of water rather than heat to fully release the benefits of the Raww essential oils. It even humidifies and purifies the air at the same time! All you have to do is add a few drops of your favourite Raww aromatherapy blend and let the essential oils do the work.

Tip #2: Add drops of essential oils to a hot bath

Try adding a few drops of pure essential oils to relax in a hot bath. Lavender essential oil is perfect for this as it helps to bring a sense of calm to both your mind and body, soothes dry or irritated skin and promotes a deeper, more restful and peaceful sleep.

Tip #3: Use body care infused with essential oils

    Beauty products infused with essential oils are another way to experience their benefits. Raww’s Zen Time Body Oil provides you with a relaxing body treatment created with the soothing and calming properties of Frankincense, Cedarwood, Patchouli and Myrrh. Apply this to your skin after a warm shower or bath and allow the combined oils to soothe your senses, ease stress and still the mind.

    Tip #4: Carry an essential oil roller ball with you

    Tip #5: Spray an aromatherapy mood mist
