When it’s time to relax, here’s my secret weapon……

I am half convinced that everyone on social media has anxiety disorder. 

Whether it’s ADHD, OCD, Mania or a combination of all three, (no judgements here, myself included), we are a product of our environment. 
We live in a society where if you don’t sleep; you are considered a warrior! 

A quick peek on my Instagram, and you’ll notice I am proud to display the quote, ” 5 am The time when Legends are waking up or going to sleep”. 
 We are, without a doubt, perpetually plugged in. 

We have conversations with our significant other as we check our email. We are Snapchatting our way through meetings and
Instagramming our dinner. 
And it’s not only generation Y, even the President (whether he’s “yours” or not…) has a Twitter account! 

 It’s amazing we can sleep a wink, with all this stimulation! 
So, when it’s time to relax, what’s your secret weapon?
Do you find your newest white noise app?
Listen to binaural beats, or maybe turn on Headspace and meditate until you’re no longer amped? How do you kick stress to the curb?
I’ll tell you what I do.
I turn it all off.
(and trust me it’s about the only time of day I turn it off…, GAWD! I love technology)
I go straight old-school and do the only thing that’s ever worked: 
Lavender and a hot bath!

So when I read about these bath products from Delicate Owl, I confess, my heart skipped a beat, and I got all warm inside. 
It was love at first sight or maybe a hot flash, but I’m going with the more romantic answer.
Put simply:
Essential oils, all natural, no parabens or preservatives, vegan friendly, no animal testing, cruelty free yumminess!  

Since I practically need a dart gun to put me to bed, I went for the heavy hitters: 
-Foremost, bath bombs. 
Feel free to quote me on this;
“If the question is bath bombs, my answer is always a resounding ‘Yes’,

 These do not disappoint. They come in a recycled box tied with twine and a lavender sprig, that screams, “i’m too pretty to open”.

Thankfully, I don’t hear those cries and impatiently, tap my foot until the bath fills enough to throw one in. They are heart-shaped, with little bits of flowers and herbs that dissipate in the water until it looks like natures confetti!           
In a word: Bliss!

-Next the Lavender salt scrub. I will admit, at first I was a bit disappointed. I am used to the salt scrubs where giant, grained crystals could just about strip the skin off my body. 
This is different, it’s a super fine, sand-like texture. All I can say is, I’ve been doing it wrong for years! This is evident in how much it removed the streaks from yesterday’s awful self tanning job. I am Amazed.

– Handmade Lavender soap was next. I’ll come clean (pun intended), I never

use soap. I’m a child of bad television, and every time I see a bar of soap I think of that commercial where they write the words “soap scum” on the shower doors. I haven’t used a bar since. This is again, where I’m surprised, all I felt was the natural oils on my skin. Nice.
I may be a bit more open-minded going forward.

– The Bath Gel and Lotion are great as well, but I’m standing firm on the bath bomb and salt scrub being my go to products here. 
All of their products are available in other fragrances, such as Rose, Lilly of the Valley, Orange Marmalade, Oatmeal and Brown Sugar Vanilla. For me, it’s a matter of necessity, and in the battle of lavender versus stress, lavender always wins!
Since I knew you’d love this as much as I do, I asked the creator of these swell products if she could provide my readers with a coupon code to show them some love and she said “absolutely”! (Thank you Sharon)
