Being a health and wellness major, I know how important it is to take care of the mind and body. Through my education, I have come to the conclusion that self-care is the number one most important thing to practice in order to be a happy and healthy individual. That said, I am pleased by the fact that Bath & Body Works decided to create an aromatherapy collection. I strongly believe in the use of aromatic plant extracts and essential oils and how these ingredients help to improve one's overall well-being. Here is a list of the fragrances that Bath & Body Works introduced in their wellness collection and how these aromas can significantly affect your mood!

1. Eucalyptus & Tea (Focus)

"Focus" aromatherapy is made with eucalyptus essential oils, which help to clear your mind, and tea extract, which improves your focus. I highly recommend buying the Focus scent in their hand cream. This product is perfect for on-the-go and can be easily stored in your bag! Bath & Body Works hand cream is made with vitamin E and shea butter which helps to strengthen your skin leaving your hands soft to the touch!

2. Lavender & Cedarwood (Sleep)

"Sleep" aromatherapy is composed of lavender and cedarwood essential oils which help to calm your mind. I love this scent in their pillow mist. Just lightly spray this mist on your pillow to help calm and clear your mind before a good night's sleep!

3. Orange & Ginger (Energy)

"Energy" aromatherapy is made up of orange and ginger essential oils which help to uplift and energize your mood and spirit. I really like this scent for body wash which is comprised of aloe and bamboo extract. This body wash will soothe your skin after each use!

4. Bergamot & Mandarin (Happiness)

"Happiness" aromatherapy is made with bergamot and mandarin essential oils which are made to enhance your mood and bring a sense of well-being. This scent is great in their gentle Bath & Body Works body scrub. This scrub helps to exfoliate your skin, leaving it feeling super soft!

5. Eucalyptus & Spearmint (Stress Relief)

"Stress Relief" aromatherapy is comprised of eucalyptus and spearmint essential oil which combined help to clear one's mind and soothe and uplift someone's spirits. I highly recommend buying the stress relief aromatherapy in the body lotion. The lotion is made with shea butter and includes vitamin E which helps to moisturize your skin with long-lasting effects. This lotion is perfect to use at the end of a long day when you are ready to unwind and relax!

6. Vanilla & Patchouli (Comfort)

"Comfort" aromatherapy is created with a mix of vanilla and patchouli essential oil. These scents help you to feel comfort and relaxation. This fragrance is great in the form of a body cream which helps to hydrate the skin with its vitamin E and shea butter ingredients. Breathe deeply while applying this body cream to receive best results!

7. Sage & Mint (Recharge)

"Recharge" aromatherapy is made up of both sage and mint oils. These scents combined help to wake up the mind and body. I recommend the recharge scent in the Bath & Body Works 3 wick candle. I love these candles because they burn for about 25-45 hours and leaves the entire room with a wonderful fragrance!

If You've Ever Been Called Overly-Emotional Or Too Sensitive, This Is For You

Despite what they have told you, it's a gift.

Emotional: a word used often nowadays to insult someone for their sensitivity towards a multitude of things.

If you cry happy tears, you're emotional. If you express (even if it's in a healthy way) that something is bothering you, you're sensitive. If your hormones are in a funk and you just happen to be sad one day, you're emotional AND sensitive.

Let me tell you something that goes against everything people have probably ever told you. Being emotional and being sensitive are very, very good things. It's a gift. Your ability to empathize, sympathize, and sensitize yourself to your own situation and to others' situations is a true gift that many people don't possess, therefore many people do not understand.

Never let someone's negativity toward this gift of yours get you down. We are all guilty of bashing something that is unfamiliar to us: something that is different. But take pride in knowing God granted this special gift to you because He believes you will use it to make a difference someday, somehow.

This gift of yours was meant to be utilized. It would not be a part of you if you were not meant to use it. Because of this gift, you will change someone's life someday. You might be the only person that takes a little extra time to listen to someone's struggle when the rest of the world turns their backs. In a world where a six-figure income is a significant determinant in the career someone pursues, you might be one of the few who decides to donate your time for no income at all. You might be the first friend someone thinks to call when they get good news, simply because they know you will be happy for them. You might be an incredible mother who takes too much time to nurture and raise beautiful children who will one day change the world.

To feel everything with every single part of your being is a truly wonderful thing. You love harder. You smile bigger. You feel more. What a beautiful thing! Could you imagine being the opposite of these things? Insensitive and emotionless?? Both are unhealthy, both aren't nearly as satisfying, and neither will get you anywhere worth going in life.

Imagine how much richer your life is because you love other's so hard. It might mean more heartache, but the reward is always worth the risk. Imagine how much richer your life is because you are overly appreciative of the beauty a simple sunset brings. Imagine how much richer your life is because you can be moved to tears by the lessons of someone else's story.

Embrace every part of who you are and be just that 100%. There will be people who criticize you for the size of your heart. Feel sorry for them. There are people who are dishonest. There are people who are manipulative. There are people who are downright malicious. And the one thing people say to put you down is "you feel too much." Hmm..

Sounds like more of a compliment to me. Just sayin'.

Working On My Emotional Health Is At The Top Of My To-Do List

I'm finally realizing the importance of my mental and emotional health.

89

The month of April has been so eye-opening for me. For the first bit of the year, I felt like I was in a slump; like I was just going through the motions and not fully living my life.

I was letting boy drama, school stress, and my poor actions to deal with those issues take over my life. I was allowing the anger and shame from those mistakes bubble up inside me until I was just about ready to explode.

I was allowing myself to go back to old ways of coping with problems that I knew weren't healthy, but I knew would be a short-term fix.

I simply wasn't living.

Then, one day I woke up and told myself I needed to change, and that if I didn't, I'd be on this same path ten years from now... or worse. I told myself I needed to get my life back on track with the Lord and with who I want to be as a rising senior in college.

After meeting with one of the leaders at my church (btw, everyone needs a Mrs. Jenny in their life!) and with my therapist, I'm starting to realize how important my emotional health is. My way of dealing with problems hasn't been working all that well, so I know it's time to try something else.

It's all going to be a huge learning process (and at times, an uphill battle), but I know working on my emotional health now will build me to be the best I can in the future.

By learning to become more open to healthier ways of dealing with issues as they come up (like not avoiding problems and actually facing them head-on), I know I can become my best self, and that is something I'm willing to work on with my whole heart.

So, I'm learning to let go of needing to control everything in my life because honestly, wanting to control everything puts me more out of control than when I first started.

And, I encourage you to do the same.
