Creating a daily wellness routine: How to incorporate supplements & aromatherapy into your day

Emily Shannon

If you follow us on Instagram then you’ll know that we’ve teamed up with award-winning aromatherapy brand Spritz Wellness. It seems like the perfect time to highlight the benefits of both aromatherapy and how using the right supplements daily, can support both our physical and mental wellbeing during these turbulent times. So, with that in mind, we’ve wanted to bring you this co-hosted blog to let you know exactly how you can incorporate aromatherapy and supplements into each and every day! 

Our Morning Routine 

The first thing we do each morning, upon waking, is spritz the Spritz Wellness Revival Atmosphere Mist. The stimulating scents of grapefruit and peppermint will give you a burst of natural energy to start your day the right way. Alongside this, our Energy + CoQ10 is our favourite way to start a busy day! We’ve included adaptogens including Panax and Siberian ginseng, plus adaptogenic cordyceps mushroom alongside fermented CoEnzyme Q10 to give you the ULTIMATE morning, energy-packed motivation-boost! It never fails to set us up the right way for the day ahead, whatever we’re up to! Sounds good right? Find out more here!

Some of our favourite advice from Laura at Spritz Wellness is to start off the day by thinking of one person or thing you are grateful for in your life - this helps us start the day with a calm and happy mindset. 

Starting the day with yoga + Ashwagandha

We follow this with yoga! Roll out your yoga mat and use the Spritz Wellness Energise Yoga Mat Spray. This is one of our favourite ways to incorporate aromatherapy into your morning sun salutations. It also helps to clean and restore your yoga mat. Find out more about the Energise Yoga Mat spray here. Whether you’re in the country or inner city take a moment to connect with the nature around you. 

After this, we take our Ashwagandha. It’s one of our top favourites when it comes to our supplement routine, thanks to its adaptogenic properties. This means that it has the ability to adapt to our bodies response to stress, reducing the stress hormone cortisol and helping to bring the body back into balance. This isn’t all, ashwagandha actually has a number of amazing benefits; from reducing anxiety, promoting sleep, supporting the immune system, as well as regulating glucose metabolism

Take it in the morning if you are looking to stabilize and reduce both stress and anxiety throughout the day,  but go for the evening if you need to regulate your sleep-wake cycle for a better night's sleep! At the moment, we’re opting for the morning to keep anxiety levels at bay - you can find out more about our ashwagandha here.

Brain Food + Purify Atmosphere Mist 

As we find ourselves in the midst of unknown territory with many of us working from home, focus and concentration are key! Here is where our Brain Food comes in. We’ve designed our Brain Food supplement to help support, you guessed it, your Brain! It’s packed with brain-boosting vitamins, minerals and mushrooms to give you that all-important BRAIN POWER to get you through your to-do list. We like to take ours mid-morning or mid-afternoon when we need that extra brain-boost to power us throughout the day! A top tip from Laura at Spritz Wellness is to try and get outside for a walk in the middle of the day to help clear your mind. 

As more of us work from home and tackle home-schooling the perfect partner to Brain Food is the Spritz Wellness Purify Atmosphere Mist which helps to refresh your space. It’s a natural way to clear the air, with a combination of pure essential oils including lemongrass, tea tree, ravensara, lavender and eucalyptus. Sounds good right? You can find out more here!

Curcumin + Zest Atmosphere Mist

We see our curcumin as an all-rounder when it comes to supplements, it’s great for pretty much anything! We like to take ours in the morning to set us up for the day, but you can take it whenever suits you best. Boosting cognition, reducing inflammation, enhancing the immune system and supporting digestion and detoxification, curcumin really is amazing! It’s one of the newest Link Nutrition supplements on the block - so you can find out more here

The Spritz Wellness Zest Atmosphere Mist is great to mist while taking the Curcumin as it is formulated to support an overall sense of well being and refresh and inspire. Formulated with the refreshing scents of lemon, lime and rosemary.  Try slicing a lemon and place it in a jug of fresh water to encourage yourself to keep hydrated throughout the day! When you have your curcumin mid-afternoon, it's a great time to check in with this. Make sure you’re staying hydrated to help you keep focused and your mind clear. 

Spritz Wellness Sleep Spray + Night 

We always like to follow a wind down ritual to prepare for sleep. With sleep hygiene more important than ever - we couldn’t be without our night time ritual before we hit the crispy cottons! There are 3 things that we just couldn’t be without when it comes to sleep. We start 30 minutes before we go to bed by taking our soothing Night blend which includes lemon balm, montmorency cherry, glycine and reishi mushroom. Then Spritz the Spritz Wellness Sleep spray on your pillow and place the Aromatherapy Eye Mask on your face and drift off into peaceful sleep! 

As we all navigate our way through these turbulent times, it’s important to find comfort in the small things and take each day as it comes. We take pleasure in using our favourite supplements to support our bodies, alongside anxiety-busting aromatherapy mists and sprays from Spritz Wellness to bring simple joys to everyday.
