The stress of work can attack us at home and prevent us from enjoying the evening to the fullest. The most common mistake that human beings make is that after work we cannot disconnect from business, and when we get home we continue to think about our work activities that we have to do the next day or the day we did today, which generates wear and tear and mental fatigue.
Aromatherapy can be a great activity to do when you are stressed or tired, here are some tips to disconnect from everything that causes you to stress and relax your body and mind naturally and easily at home.
You come home after an endless day and, once stretched out on the couch, it is impossible to take a real break. The file to finish, the meeting to organize, prepare the food, hang the clothes, call the parents, give the children a bath… the list of things to do makes you anxious. However, relaxing for a few minutes allows you to recharge your batteries for the night, rest better at night, and be in better shape the next day.
Palo santo is known to be an excellent natural relaxant that helps fight stress and fatigue effectively and quickly. If you are going to use this sacred wood, it is good that you know that only the palo santo that has died naturally in the forest is used, in this way the palo santo manifests its properties and we can take advantage of it, that is why before using an essential oil or some natural product made from this sacred tree, find out where it comes from and acquire it from companies that work in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way and above all that have reforestation programs.
Discover some tips to successfully disconnect:
Purify your home and eliminate the bad energies that surround you
It is inevitable that our body does not accumulate bad energies during the day, even more so at work, where we get frustrated, we experience stress, and we surround ourselves with many people. It is good that at least once a month you do a deep cleaning of your home, I do it with Palo Santo powder, which its smoke helps to purify the air in my home eliminating negative energies, It also works as a great air freshener natural since it eliminates bad odors, it is ideal for large and small areas. And very easy to use, just place a handful of palo santo powder in a censer and light it, let the smoke purify your room.
For more personal use I use palo santo incense sticks, when I get home from work I take out a palo santo incense stick from my wallet and
light it, once it is on I spread its smoke over my body, to protect myself and eliminate bad energies that I have accumulated during the day.
Leave work at the office
Before you go home, make sure you have completed all urgent tasks, and if not, make a to-do list for the next day and leave it on your desk. It is impossible to relax properly if ideas about work keep cropping up at night. Office stress has no right to cross your doorstep.
Relax in the water
A hot bath or shower is very effective in relieving the stress of the day, relaxing muscles, and flushing out toxins. If you have a bathtub, add coarse salt and a few drops of Palo Santo essential oil to the water. And feel free to practice some breathing exercises to accentuate relaxation. If you do not have essential oil you can use natural soaps. In my case I use Palo Santo natural soaps that are made without chemicals and based on essential oils.
Set the mood
Sometimes we can come home with a headache and with our spirits on the ground. What I usually do is lower the brightness of the room to send relaxation signals to the body, which is getting ready for bed. Feel free to create a subdued atmosphere with essential oils and a scent diffuser and dim the lights to relax. A musical soda and a hot drink will also help you relax.
Within the range of essential oils that you can use to create a relaxing environment are:
- Palo santo essential oil
- Lavender essential oil
- Tangerine essential oil
- Lemon and peppermint essential oil
Turn off the phone
Easier said (or written) than done, it’s true. But limiting the time spent in front of the screens, especially at night, is essential to disconnect and find sleep more easily. Try to get into the habit, except in an emergency, of leaving your phone in the corner of the living room and not touching it until the next morning. Social media and emails can wait…
The power of scents is powerful, and breathing in essential oils helps calm the senses and mind. As mentioned above, Palo Santo is excellent for combating sleep onset disorders. You can use a diffuser to perfume your bedroom or pour a few drops on the corners of the pillow and duvet.
If you don’t have an aroma diffuser, you can also create natural air fresheners with cotton. In my case, what I do is put cotton in a cloth bag and put a few drops of palo santo essential oil mixed with lavender in order to fall asleep.
I hope these little tricks are useful to you and you can put them into practice in your daily life and you can rest from work stress. Remember that it is very important to separate the activities of work from those of your home.
Spend more time with your family, and work only working hours. If you know of another trick let me know in the comments, so we can all learn and put it into practice at home.

Yes I’ve use Palo Santo. I recommend, give it away whenever I can, to my clients & students friends because its one of the most powerful aura chakra entity remover protectors. We are all empaths, palo Santo does wonders for clearing out others energies we’ve picked up & don’t need. As a natural healer one of my main therapies is using aromatherapy & smudging with Palo Santo. Because they work!!! No side effects, fairly affordable. I also teach classes about it & share them whenever I can. Personally I’ve used essential oils to help heal everything, cleaning also lol. Ecspecially cancer, 2 brain strokes, death, depression, abuse and now Huntingtons disease a genetic disorder,friends with opiate addictictions PTSD, anxiety attacks, autism just to name a few. I can always feel peoples auras & chakras get lighter clearer, calmer & see there moods completely change. I am very grateful & always try to inform people about Palo Santo & aromatherapy. The scents remimd people of memories, past lives & of the healing so when they smell it, it reminds them of the healing with the oil’s. I also use aromatherapy with face, hand, foot, ear reflex points, offering energy healing, massage & tapping. I AM infinetly grateful for such a tremendous generous opportunity bless all of you for all you do bless & help so many become aware
