I was away on a weekend trip where I was low key and packed lightly. Being away from my home is fun and makes great memories, but when I get home I am ever so grateful.
Before I leave I make sure:
- Dishes are clean and put away
- Toys, clothes, clutter is in their spot
- Clean sheets are on my bed
- Fresh towels and bathroom are clean
- Smelly-goods: that the house smells fabulous upon arrival
Being welcomed by a calm home is peaceful.
The hustle, bustle, and travel time away drains us of our energy. The last thing on our minds when we get home is to have a to-do list. Our minds and body can relax if when we arrive our home is happy and clutter-free.
Coming Home Essential Oil Blend
- 5 drops lavender
- 5 drops frankincense
- 5 drops lemon
This is the blend that I whipped up as soon as I got home. I put it in the diffuser and let my spirit be nourished and relaxed. It was a little woodsy from the frankincense, fresh from the lavender, and clean from the lemon.
My home smelled lovely as I gave into the exhaustion and enjoyed being where my heart is.
Then, I brought out my yoga mat, took deep breaths, and rejuvenated my senses as I parted from the weekend and welcomed the upcoming week.
