7 Days Of Spring Cleansing

7 Days Of Spring Cleansing

Join us for the 'Seven Days of Spring Cleansing' Challenge! For the next seven days, follow the self-care tips mentioned in this blog and get ready to detox, declutter, and rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul. Take this opportunity to incorporate self care rituals in your daily routine and elevate your long term wellbeing.

So, what is Spring Cleansing? It’s simple, it’s a combination of detoxifying yourself whilst also enjoying the beautiful season of spring. We all know that the practice of Spring Cleaning involves the action to clean your home during springtime. Well, along with Spring Cleaning your home, we are urging you to also Spring Clean yourself mentally, physically and spiritually. This can be achieved in several ways such as by taking a long aromatherapy bath, taking social media breaks, going for a walk outdoors and many more. We have put together our top recommended activities that you can easily incorporate in your everyday life and get a detox and a cleanse.

So, are you ready? We recommend reading through this blog, getting the products and your mindset ready and then go all in for the Seven Days of Spring Cleanse, starting Monday!

Day 1: Cleanse Your Home Ambience

Let’s begin with cleansing the environment we live and breathe in.

Sage sticks are a great way to remove negative influences from the environment, invite positive energy and create feelings of inner calm. Light up one end of a sage stick, set your intentions for the week to create positive vibes and direct the smoke around all areas and surfaces in your home and work space. You can feel the positive vibes around your home after cleansing your home with sage. They work on both physical and emotional levels and help you feel grounded and optimistic about life.

Day 2: Bathe That Body

We all know how important it is to shower and bathe every day, but we forget just how important it is to cleanse our skin on a regular basis as well. Skin needs both moisture and cleansing to stay healthy - and luckily body oils provide for both. We recommend using an Aromatherapy Bath and Body Oil as it has multiple benefits of moisturising, cleansing as well as the therapeutic benefits of essential oils. Apply it directly to your skin after a bath or shower and massage it upwards gently towards your heart. You can use the Mind Spa Bath & Body Oil or the Sweet Dreams Bath & Body Oil every other evening after a long hard day of work and enjoy the relaxation! The oil helps relax your muscles and unwind before going to bed. The nutrients from the enriched essential oils, sweet almond and jojoba oils provide deep nourishment to the skin. To revive, refresh, and drain away tension and accumulated stress, we recommend adding a few drops of the bath oil into a running bath or apply to your body after a shower or bath, at least two times a week. It is a multipurpose therapeutic option to rejuvenate your body.


Day 3: Meditate To Clear Your Mind

"When your room is clean and uncluttered, you have no choice but to examine your inner state." - Marie Kondo. The same is applicable to our mind. A clean and focused mind allows us to connect more deeply with our inner selves, become more self-aware, and connect with our innate desires. 

Meditation is one of the most popular and effective forms of self-care. It's a great way to relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. The process itself is fairly simple: Meditating can be done in any position you find comfortable or by following a guided meditation on YouTube or an app like Headspace or Calm. It can take as little as five minutes each day to see the benefits of meditation. There are different styles of meditation - including mantra, guided visualisations, and breath work. In the initial stages, meditating can feel very difficult - especially when you've never tried it before. That's why it's important to go into it gradually, with an open mind and do your research on different methods to find the method that works best for you. To establish a sacred place, feel grounded, and relaxed, you can diffuse a peaceful essential oil such as the Sweet Dreams Diffuser Oil Blend or use a singing bowl during your meditation and yoga sessions. Both of these products can help with reducing sleep problems by lowering your heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature and thus improve sleep quality. Could you make Meditation a regular self care ritual, this Spring?

 Day 4: Light Up Your Spring Candle

Candles with relaxing scents ate a great way to unwind, calm your mind, revive your senses and take it easy. 

There are several scents that you can choose from, based on your personal choice. For example, if your goal is to feel more energised, citrus scents may be better suited for you. If your goal is to feel more relaxed, you would want something that smells like lavender or oud. Whatever the case may be, it’s always better to find what works best for your well being!

Chilli Winter’s highly recommended floral Velvet Peony & Oud candle can give you a boost of energy, a breath of fresh air and make you feel revitalised. A candle that not only illuminates your space but also improves your mood, allowing you to enjoy a more relaxing and productive day.  Whenever you are feeling low or overwhelmed, light up a candle. Allow the springtime aromas to brighten your day and refresh your mind…

Day 5: Detox Your Muscles

The weekend is quickly approaching, so it’s time to relax the aches and pains in your body, prepare for a crazy girl’s night out or just simply spend the weekend relaxing on your couch! Indulge into a pampering bubbly bath on a weekend for a quick cleanse and unwind. The Heart Chakra Bath Salts from Clarity Blend help pause and restore your energy for the week ahead. The harmonious blends of cedarwood, frankincense and grapefruit blended with epsom salts guarantee a relaxing soak and a good night's sleep, relieving all your daily stress and worries. Here are the steps we recommend in order to cleanse the skin and restore a peaceful night's sleep

  1. Start with a hot bath: This will help open up your pores and allow the salts to penetrate deep into your muscles.
  1. Add 1-2 cups of Heart Chakra Bath Salts: This will help to draw out toxins and ease muscle pain.
  1. Let it work its magic: Soak for 20-30 minutes. This allows yourself time to relax and will maximise the benefits of the bath.
  1. Rinse off with cold water: This will help to close your pores and prevent any further detoxing.

So, what are you waiting for? Dive in, doze off and dream easy... 

Day 6: Reflect On Your Thoughts

Let's also take some time this weekend to reflect on how the week has gone so far…

Identify any recurring thoughts and patterns that are impeding our progress, thank them for their service up to this point, and then let them go. Cleanse feelings of scarcity and attract abundance, greatness, and a happy way of life. Journalling is a great way to reflect and articulate your thoughts and changes you want to make in the coming days to live a happier and more fulfilled life. It clears your mind as well as saves you time. Yes, it takes time, but by writing, you are cleansing your mind of all the frustrations of the past and releasing your anxieties about the future. Actively engaging with those thoughts and then letting them go can result in your unfocused mind to become more present. The Mind Notes l Daily Wellbeing Journal from LSW London is a perfect tool to keep exercising your mind and keep up with this cleansing self-care habit. This journal is designed to help you pinpoint thought and behaviour patterns, encourage the practice of gratitude and use weekly exercises to increase your sense of positive wellbeing for a more fulfilled life. 

Day 7: Create A Vision Board

It's the last day of Spring Cleaning, and we recommend making a vision board to let go of the past and start fresh with purpose and intentions. Make a vision board of everything you want and believe that you can have it all! Create a new canvas for your dreams, look at it every day, believe that you deserve them, imagine a life with them in it, and work hard to achieve them. Use a simple notebook or you can choose from the variety of beautiful journals available on our store. Canva is also a great digital option to create a vision board. Dream, doodle, bring clarity in your thoughts and desires and start building that fascinating vision board. Studies show creating vision boards can help with reducing anxiety & depression when combined with solution-focused therapy. This kind of psychotherapy assists you in changing your thinking patterns and behaviours in order to achieve the goals you set for yourself.

We hope you enjoyed your seven days of cleanse! Contact us to share your thoughts and additional suggestions.
