Simple Ways to Fill Your Home with Positive & Relaxing Energy

Wellness > Lifestyle + Home

By: Candice Kumai

Treat yourself right this weekend and just RELAX. Working between LA + NYC is always a hustle, so I try and keep my living space a retreat from the city noise and crowds. With September almost here, we can all use a little break before summer is officially over. So sit back, get yourself a cup of tea, and just breathe!

Here are 4 simple ways I put positivity into my personal space at home:

1- Use Peppermint in the home! Essential oils, candles, bath soaks, make lavender lemonade, even my lavender melon smoothie here! The scent of lavender or peppermint can help to ease stress, soothe, comfort and relax/calm the mind.

2- Try adding some coconut//soy based candles to your space: Bring friendship and love into your safe space. Candles also set a beautiful scene at night and can bring a sense of relaxation, aromatherapy and joy to your home. Look for safe soy or coconut based candles with clean burning wicks.

3- Use Mala Beads: (For meditation and and prayer) around your home space. They can help to keep you calm, relaxed and can bring peace into your life. Bonus: they can double as a fabulous jewelry piece out and about on the town. I love wearing mine!

4- Try investing in a fabulous, aromatherapy diffuser: I use mine with essential oils and water, every night, it helps for me to breathe!, create a space of light, good energy and love at the end of each long workday!

The use of rice flour in this heavenly, aromatic, gluten + dairy-free tea cake makes it reminiscent of mochi, an amazing + sweet Japanese dessert!
