Self-nourishing practices for the holidays


Mentally visualize each part of your body keeping the focus on your breath as you scan your entire body from head to toe. Giving your mind a daily break from the hustle and bustle of the day. It's an intentional opportunity to refresh the mind.


Try a restorative yoga session, It's easy you can do it in the comfort of your home or sign up for a weekly class. this an excellent practice before bedtime.

Abhyanga or Self-massage

Before going to bed: use a based oil such as almond oil, coconut oil or jojoba oil and a few drops of essential oil, apply from head to toes in circular motion clockwise.

It lubricates the entire body, aids with detoxification, calms the nerves & promotes deeper sleep.

4. Milk bath

Reward youself with a Milk Bath to smooth rough, over dry skin.

It's as simple as pouring your chosen milk into warm bath water and soaking. However, unless you want thin, thready bubbles in your milk bath, add the milk after you've finished filling the tub. The measurements for a milk bath don't need to be exact, but here are some guidelines to get you started:For liquid milk add 1 cup to 2 cups into warm bathwater. You can use either fresh or canned milk (not sweetened).

For powdered milk add 1/3 cup to 2/3 cup powdered milk into warm bathwater you can customize your milk bath. For example, try adding a handful of finely ground oats, lavender buds, rose petals (fresh or dried), 1/2 cup Epsom salts or sea salt; a few drops of skin-safe essential oils: with essential oils such as lavender, chamomile and bergamot to release muscular tension.

Sometimes you have to turn off your mind in order to hear your soul whispers to you.-James Allen
