A Meditation Teacher’s 8 Tips for Better Sleep

Since having Ethan last year, and a few months prior to his birth, sleep has eluded me. Before getting pregnant, I would take melatonin or unisom before bed because my insomnia was so bad. Although Ethan is 1, he still doesn't sleep through the night, which means I can't be Read more

This luxury facial cleanser makes skin feel amazing! I've been using Reflekt Skincare for the last 6 weeks about 2-3 times per week. In the summer, a regular cleanser alone won't do the trick to thoroughly rid my skin of all the "gunk" that warmer weather brings when wearing makeup, Read more

Aromatherapy Diffuser: Gurunanda Essential Oils

Gurunanda Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Diffuser and essential oils review via @agirlsgottaspa

One of the main things I love about walking into a spa is the calming scent that fills the air. It’s like instant relaxation before your spa treatment has even begun.

When I was younger, my sister used to burn incense sticks. It was all the rage back in the early 90’s. To be honest, I would make fun of her for it. All these years later, I didn’t realize that it was a form of aromatherapy… and now I love it, just in essential oil form.

I recently received the Gurunanda Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser, and honestly, I’m so in love.

Some of the benefits of this aromatherapy diffuser: Read more

Aqua Spa Body Cleanser Review

Aqua Spa Body Cleanser #review #beauty via @agirlsgottaspa

I strongly believe that one should make time spent in the shower as relaxing and enjoyable as possible…even if it’s one of those two minutes showers that seem to be occurring with more frequency as we are all continuously pressed for time.

One of the best ways to turn shower time into a mini-spa experience is by incorporating a body cleanser that smells and feels so amazing that it transports you…even for a  few seconds to that  A Girl’s Gotta Spa! state of mind.  I manage to transport myself to that state of mind most mornings and evenings with Aqua Spa’s Lavender + Chamomile or Citrus + Ginger Body Cleansers.  I love using the Citrus + Ginger Body Cleanser in the morning and the Lavender + Chamomile Body Cleanser in the evening.

Being able to transform my shower into a spa-like experience is my idea of absolute bliss, so one can only imagine my elation upon hearing the words “aromatherapy shower kit.”

Immediately upon hearing those few words, pictures of a completely relaxed, zen-like me began dancing in my head. Needless to say, I could hardly wait to get my hands on this magical product that would allow me to turn my boring old shower time into an invigorating spa time.

This magical product that I speak of is the Essio Aromatherapy Shower Kit.  The kit includes a shower arm and essential oil pods and is exceptionally easy to use…honesty it took me less an a minute to attach the arm to my shower and insert the essential oil pod. Best of all? Set up required zero tools.  After setting up was compete, all I had to do was turn on my shower water and tilt the pod into the stream of water and the essential oils began to diffuse into my shower.
