Now more than ever, taking steps towards wellness can help improve our mental and physical well-being. Significant changes can be overwhelming and challenging to sustain over the long term. Here at Sha-Faun Enterprises, we want to show you a few simple changes you can make in your life that won't overwhelm you while helping you work towards a healthier you!
Essential oils are a small part of overall wellness, but they can be an easy addition to your daily routines. Young Living essential oils are versatile and come with a whole host of aromatherapy uses that are quick and easy to incorporate into your other healthy habits!
Sha-Faun Tips for Using Essential Oils for Wellness:
Healthy habits and wellness come in all shapes and forms. We all know the basics:
Those healthy habits are easier some days than others, especially right now.
Did you know there are other, more subtle ways to promote wellness in your daily life?
Diet and exercise are not the only ways we become healthier in our bodies and minds. Essential oils promote well-being in other ways you might not expect!
Help Reduce Feelings of Anxiousness:
We all experience anxiousness, and some struggle with anxiety more than others. None of us are immune to feelings of nervousness and anxiety. Essential oils may help promote feelings of happiness and calm in our increasingly stressful lives.
Create a soothing temple rub to use anywhere on the go with Young Living lavender, sandalwood, and ylang-ylang essential oils.
Combine the following in a small jar or an oil roller for a temple rub to help you feel calmer.
Disrupt unwanted feelings of anxiousness by using aromatherapy to promote feelings of calm and happiness.
Make Joyful Movement Easier using Young Living Essential Oils:
Here at Sha-Faun Enterprises, we want to promote the idea of healthy and joyful exercise. Exercise should be something that feels good for you and your body. Essential oils can help make healthy movement easier on your muscles.
Create a soothing salve using Cedarwood essential oil.
Combine the following ingredients into a small jar for a mixture to help relax sore muscles.
Boost Your Concentration Using Essential Oils:
Our mental energies are divided right now, especially if you have kids. From worrying about our health and safety to concentrating on our careers and social lives (or lack thereof), our minds are buzzing 24/7. Meet that deadline or finish that task by promoting better concentration using Young Living Essential Oils.
Here at Sha-Faun, even we struggle with our concentration. We know firsthand how it feels to be split between multiple tasks.
When we struggle to stay focused, we get the diffuser going with Rosemary and Lemon essential oils. This combination of oils helps us stay energized and focused on bringing you more essential oils news every day!
Work on Getting Better Sleep:
Good sleep is vital to everyday wellness. During sleep, our bodies relax and heal themselves from the daily stressors we experience. Essential oils such as lavender and chamomile can help relax our bodies into deeper and better sleep. Diffusing calming oils during the evening hours can help set up your body and mind for a better night's sleep. You can create a relaxing body lotion by mixing a few drops of your favorite relaxing essential oils into 8oz of unscented body lotion on those particularly restless nights.
Take Action for a Healthier You with Sha-Faun Enterprises

Keep drinking your water, eating more plants, and incorporating some of our Sha-Faun wellness tips using essential oils while you strive for a healthier you!
