The New Year is the perfect time for a fresh start. Detoxifying your body and mind is a great way to kick off a new beginning and release the past. A detox can help you relax, clear your body and mind of the holiday hustle and bustle, and get focused for the upcoming year. Essential oils are a wonderful tool to use during a detoxifcation.
In addition to these specific oils, you can also use oils that are among your favorite. The point is to create peace of mind and a sense of forward motion, so any oil that is appealing to you will help.
Oils can be used in a variety of different ways for your detoxification. They can be mixed with base oils for a massage. They can be burned in an oil diffuser throughout your home or work space. You can also add the oils to a warm bath.
In addition to oils, you can include a variety of other activities in your detox.
Your detox should last at least a day, but can go on for a week or more. In addition to the oils, you should focus on improving your diet, clearing your physical space, releasing negativity from the previous year, and refocusing for the coming year.
Many people choose to journal throughout their detox, recording their physical reactions, as well as the emotions they work through during this time.
It is important to be especially gentle with yourself during your detoxification period. Avoid heavy exercise, but go for long walks, swim, or practice yoga. Eat light, whole foods and drink plenty of water and herbal tea. Avoid stimulants and eliminate processed foods.
Your goal is to reset your body and mind, putting things on the right track for the upcoming year. Time during your detox should be spent focused on your body and your spirit, building strength, and reflecting on your current position and future goals. Detoxification is a great way to kick off a new year and essential oils can make your detox even more beneficial.
