Selfcare Isn't Always Gentle

Friday, August 5, 2022


Selfcare isn't always about being gentle with oneself.  Sometimes we need to push ourselves from the moment we are in.  This was a lesson I taught myself yesterday.

I woke feeling blah, heavy in feelings, I really didn't want to get out of bed.  Contemplating a day off, talking myself into a break from my little business I am trying to get going, from responsibilities and my list of things to do.  While lying there sinking into my blahness, a voice in the back of my head told me that I needed shake this mood off me.  

Was it easy? Not at all.  I could have easily stayed there, but I also knew I had so much I wanted to do.  Not needed, but wanted.  Staring at the ceiling I started giving myself an internal lecture.  Moving through my mood, processing, telling myself the emotions I was feeling were unjustified, unwarranted and I really needed to move my arse!!!  That lying there wasn't taking care of ME!  And it lead to the most productive day.

After all that I achieved I decided it was then time for some gentle selfcare, so I made myself some bath salts (recipe below), poured a glass of wine and enjoyed a pre dinner bath.

Bath salts are my favourite DIY! So easy - self indulgent - all about me - bath time!!!  All oils in recipe are from Eco Modern Essentials.

Lux Bamboo Glass Jar from Krysten Collective
12 Drops Frankincense 
12 Drop Jasmine 
Fractionated Coconut Oil 
Dead sea salts

All I do is fill the jar 3/4 full of the salts, add a couple of tablespoons of the coconut oil then add my Jasmine and Frankincense..  iF you would rather have this for the shower as a scrub add more coconut oil for a wetter consistency to use on your skin.

An extra note.. Don't get me wrong, I do believe there are days we are just going to be blah, and we are to take care of what is going on, to take a day off life to be there.  However, I knew mine yesterday was worth the internal fight.

Do not use this scrub on your face as the dead sea salts are too rough.
