Natural Bug Spray? Does it work?

Do Natural Insect Repellents Really Work?

It’s that time of year when the days get longer, the sun shines brighter, and the flowers are in bloom.

Kids everywhere are dying to get outside and celebrate. After-school days are filled with playdates on the playground, picnics in the park, and patio dinners with friends. We don’t know about you, but we are sensitive to putting anything toxic around my family. When looking for insect repellent we avoid DEET.

DEET is a key, stinky ingredient of many popular bug sprays on the market. Its safety is questionable. Studies have linked it to nervous system issues, respiratory issues, and skin reactions. . Luckily, there is a choice available – JE Bug Away Spray! Studies by Consumer Reports found that deet-free products, like Bug Away Spray, can actually work better!

Bug Away Spray contains no harmful ingredients. It naturally repels pests using natural ingredients like Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus and Peppermint Essential Oil. Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus—not to be confused with Lemon or Eucalyptus Essential Oils—comes from the leaves of a specific species of the eucalyptus tree. It naturally repels bugs!

And, unlike DEET, there is ZERO evidence that Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus is harmful. Not only is it a powerful and effective tool for repelling pests like mosquitoes and ticks, but it is also potentially helpful with muscle spasms, joint pain, and sinus issues.

Peppermint Essential Oil is also effective at repelling spiders and rodents! Plus, peppermint has soothing and cooling properties.

And best of all this combination smells amazing!

Jordan Essentials Bug Away Spray can be applied directly to skin, clothes, and pets (with the exception of our beloved feline friends, no kitties) and can be used around your home. It can be safely used on children three years and up. For younger kiddos, apply it to their strollers, carriers, or surroundings to keep them protected without applying it directly to their skin.

It makes me feel good to have safe, natural alternatives like this for my family. If you’re like me and want to take a more natural approach to your bug spray, grab your Bug Away Spray today!

During the winter months, it’s no secret that our skin suffers from dryness. One of the areas that suffers the most is our feet. Treat your feet this season with our December JJ Box! We’ve got everything you need to take care of your feet and keep them healthy during the cold, dry months.

Keep Your Feet Moisturized & Healthy

Don’t neglect your feet during wintertime! Everything from cracked heels and calluses to dry skin and nails, can put a damper on the holiday season if your feet aren’t healthy.

In order to keep your feet healthy, exfoliate your skin with an effective foot scrub. This will help heal cracked and calloused skin. Use a thick and moisturizing shea butter to soothe and smooth out your skin. In the shower, don’t forget to cleanse your feet too!

Once you’ve taken care of your feet, make sure to maintain their healthy by wearing thick socks all winter long—avoid walking barefoot!

December JJ Box For Healthy Feet

This December, our biggest concern is making sure you treat yourself and indulge in a spa-like treatment for your feet. Treating your feet is the ultimate way to bring the luxury spa experience into your home!

Our Jordan Essentials JJ Box features our Peppermint Foot Scrub and Peppermint Shea Butter, along with an exfoliating mitt to use for scrubbing and moisturizing.

 
 

Shea butter is one of the best ingredients for moisturizing your feet because shea butter effectively repairs and heals dry skin, provides anti-inflammatory benefits, deeply moisturizes and strengthens skin, and it even relieves tired and achy muscles.

Try Dead Sea Salts For Ultimate Foot Health

 
_C2A0285.jpg
 

Here at Jordan Essentials we love to soak in magnesium salts to soothe tired muscles and immerse ourselves in the ultimate relaxation experience. But what you may not know is that you don’t have to take an entire bath just to heal your feet. Fill your tub or a bucket with warm water and dead sea salts for a rejuvenating and healing foot soak.

Magnesium salts are essential for rebooting tired feet, and they’ll fuel your feet with nutrients like magnesium, potassium, and calcium. Try one of our seasonal scents like Peppermint.

Be sure to check out this month’s Joyful Jordan Box to treat yourself this holiday season!

As we approach December, we’re officially feeling the effects of the colder weather and dry air. Our skin is cracked, our lips are chapped, and we’re in need of some serious pampering! On top of the harsh winter weather, we’ve got the added stress of the holiday season and a pandemic keeping us busy and dealing with complicated social distancing guidelines.

Ahhh, time to take a deep breath. Trust us when we say we’ve got you covered when it comes to winter self care. Our guide to winter self care features ways to boost your mood, relax your body and mind, pamper yourself, heal dry skin and lips, and find both comfort and joy during the winter months.

Use essential oils to boost your mood: Stress and holiday busyness aside, the winter weather has a tendency to bring down our moods, especially after Christmas and New Year’s is over. One of the most effective ways to improve your mood is to use essential oils. You can add them to your unscented products, use them in cleaning products, add them to our hand sanitizer, or diffuse them in your house to lift your spirits. Try our Peace Herbal Blend Spray to spritz calming essential oils in every room of your house!

_C2A0326.jpg

Bathe in dead sea salts to relax: Relax tired muscles and sleep better with our effective dead sea salt soaks. Whether you’re experiencing stress, or you need to recover after working out, these bath salts will revive both your body and your mind. Magnesium, potassium, and calcium soak away aches, pains, and daily wear. We love the Peppermint soak for its festive scent, but you can also try our Unscented soak and add your own favorite essential oils!

Apply face masks for pampering: There is truly nothing better for pampering yourself than using face masks. Not only do face masks cleanse, purify, and revitalize your skin, but they are also soothing, relaxing, and indulgent. We love the Detoxifying Clay Mask for that much-needed deep cleanse that removes pollutants and toxins from your skin. You can even use this mask for a spot treatment for any blemishes that you have. Our Purifying Charcoal Mask is essential for cleansing your pores, purifying your skin, and gently exfoliating.

Use lip balm to heal chapped lips: If there’s one thing you simply can’t skimp on during winter months, it’s taking care of your lips. Make sure you’re using lip balm daily to take care of your dry, chapped lips. We love using the Lip Care Duo which includes a shea butter lip balm with cherry, and a lip exfoliant.

Find a daily moisturizer and body lotion for soothing dry skin: While you may already use a daily moisturizer for your face, make sure you’re also using a body lotion every day to ensure you’re combatting dry skin head to toe. For your face, try our luxurious Red Wine Deep Daily Moisturizer, and for your body, use one of our Shea Body Butters.

This week on our Weekly Spotlight Sale, we’re featuring a Comfort and Joy Collection. This collection includes Skin Relief, which is a proprietary blend of nutrient rich aloe, green tea, seaweed, chamomile, and vitamin E. This thick body lotion soothes even the driest skin, and will bring you comfort! The collection also features our blended essential oil, Orange Lavender Essential Oil Blender Buddy, that will bring you joy this season.

We’ve broken it down so you have a simple and easy-to-use gift guide for every important person in your life! This gift guide includes some stocking stuffer ideas, gift ideas, and ideas on how to make sure every important person in your life feels special this holiday season.

Your Children

This has been a challenging year for everyone, but your kids are likely to have experienced the worst of it. With school and sports being different and having to spend part of the year isolated from friends, it’s especially important to make sure your kids feel treated this year!

Teenage Son

Your son has likely been asking for something big on his Christmas wish list, and he’s no doubt made it clear to you what he wants. In addition to gifting your son with what he wants most this year, it is also a great time of year for giving back to the community. One idea to make this season more special for you and your son is to volunteer together or pick a charity to donate to. While building his character, you’re also teaching him what matters most during this time.

For stocking stuffers, your son will want something practical that he can actually use. Fill his stocking with our hand sanitizers! This hand sanitizer set comes with two essential oil blender buddies — Orange & Lavender, and Lemon & Peppermint.

Teenage Daughter

What are some of the experiences your daughter has missed the most this year? Think of ways to bring her favorite things into the home—think manicure sets, new hair products, clothes from her favorite store, or anything else she’s been asking for. To make the holiday season more special for you and your daughter, find something the two of you can do together that doesn’t involve material things. Take her to her favorite restaurant, buy tickets to the botanical gardens, go for a hike together, or do anything else that is special for you two.

She’ll love having her stocking filled with beauty and skincare products! Gift her the gorgeous kabuki/blender brush duo and our mineral makeup products for natural ingredients that will enhance her beauty. She will also love this seasonally-scented cranberry lip balm to keep her lips smooth and healthy.

The Mothers In Your Life

Your mother and mother in law are two of the most dear people to you, and whether you have been able to see them in person or not this year, ‘tis the season for showering them with love…and gifts, of course. When it comes to the mothers in your life, you can never go wrong with natural beauty products that will improve their skin and overall health.

   

Your Mother

For your mother, it’s more about the thought and love behind your gifts than the gifts themselves. Take some time to write your mother a loving note, thanking her for being such an amazing mom.

_C2A0027.jpg

But you’ll also want to give her the November Joyful Jordan Box, which comes with a Pear Spice Bar Soap, Helio Spray, Peace Spray, Hope Shea Butter, and a $5 gift certificate so she can pick something out just for herself.

Mother In Law

Show your mother in law how much you care this holiday season by gifting her with a full essential oils set that comes with a durable case. This set includes the new duos, Peppermint & Lemon, and Lavender & Orange. Go the extra mile and include some unscented shea butters or dead sea salts that she can scent however she wants. Or on a personal card, include some of your favorite scent combos for her diffuser.

Other Important People On Your Gift List

For anyone else on your gift list this year, you can’t go wrong with some of our holiday products. From gift tag lotion bars to pomegranate cider hand and body lotion, we’ve got something for everyone on your list!

Child’s Teacher

We can all agree that teachers deserve the best of the best this year! Treat your teacher with our “Gift Tag” Holiday Happy Box. This box features a Pomegranate Cider Lotion Bar, a Soothing Magnesium Stick, and Pomegranate Bar Soap. Not to mention, the cute packaging is sure to give your child’s teacher a big smile!

JE-20.jpg

Best Friend

Let’s be honest, we couldn’t get through this year without our best friends. In addition to writing a note showing your immense gratitude for her support, gift her with our essential oil blender buddy duo—and remind her that she’s your main buddy. Give her our hand sanitizer for her to use her essential oils with, and don’t forget to mention that as long as she keeps her hands germ-free, the two of you can continue on with your socially distanced wine dates!

For more gift ideas, be sure to check out our entire holiday shop complete with seasonal (and healthy!) presents for everyone special in your life.

When we think of the holidays, we think of sharing things that we love with the ones that we love. For us, this holiday season is all about sharing natural products for healthier skin and a healthier life.

Jordan Essentials products contain healthy ingredients like aloe, apricot oil, chamomile, coconut oil, magnesium, and essential oils just to name a few. We are also adamant about leaving out ingredients that may be harmful such as aluminum, gluten, Isopropyl Alcohol, Mineral Oil, parabens, SLS & SLES, and more!

It is easier than ever to share these products with friends and family, and you may even be rewarded by doing so! Share natural and healthy products by hosting your very own spa party this holiday!

So, why host your own Jordan Essentials online party? Here are four reasons why now is the best time to do so.

           

Earn free products– The holiday season can be expensive for many, so this time of year is perfect to be rewarded with free products. Share products with family and friends shopping for those on their Christmas lists, and you can earn free products yourself!

Exclusive Host Rewards– Every month, Jordan Essentials offers a new exclusive host reward for those that host a party! If you’re interested, ask your Jordie more about how you can be rewarded for sharing natural products online. (Hint: Your reward may be these amazing under eye gels and our Time Rewind Eye Gel serum). Plus, in November we are offering an additional host special you won’t want to miss out on!

Share products during the holiday season– The holiday season is upon us which means many have started their Christmas shopping. Now more than ever, people are in search of natural products that support good health and healthy skin, and Jordan Essentials offers just that!

       

It’s fun– Hosting an online spa party has never been easier or more fun! Jordan Essentials has the resources and tools you need to host your very own party. No worries if you’ve never hosted before, your Jordie will set you up with everything you will need.

If you’re interested in hosting your own spa party or would like to learn more, reach out to your Jordie or click here! Happy hosting!

It’s safe to say that many of us face stress on a daily basis, but there are many techniques that can help kick this weighing feeling to the curb. We are amazed by the power of natural products to combat stress in our own lives, so we figured we’d share some of our favorite ways to use them to beat stress, along with some self-care rituals we practice regularly.

Here are 7 ways to handle stress—not just today, but every day!

1. Keep Calm & Roll On

_C2A0618.jpg
 

When in doubt, grab your essential oils roll-on. This convenient little helper is the perfect size to bring with you anywhere, and it is the best way to quickly apply essential oils when you need them most.

For a general feeling of calm, try the Peace Herbal Blend Roll On. This blend combines stress-relieving oils like ylang ylang, patchouli, frankincense, clary sage, sweet orange, and thyme.

For a stress-induced headache, you’ll need the Headache Herbal Blend Roll On. Whether you have a tension, pain, or pressure headache, peppermint, lavender, sweet basil, and frankincense are to the rescue!

When you’re stressed, one of the worst things that can happen is when anxiety keeps you lying awake at night. Try the Sleep Herbal Blend Roll On for a blend of lavender, sweet orange, and chamomile to help you fall into a deep, restorative sleep.

 

2. Take Some Deep Breaths

Meditation can be an intimidating practice, especially if you’re new to it. But reaping the benefits of meditation doesn’t mean you have to sit down for twenty minutes a day. Try a couple minutes of deep breathing to bring you into a state of peace. If you’re feeling distracted during this practice, imagine yourself in a beautiful, calm place by the ocean or in the mountains. This breathing practice works wonders at reducing stress.

   

3. Spa Night With Face Masks

_C2A0473 (2).jpg

The best form of self-care is to do something you don’t normally “have time” to do. While we may wash and moisturize our faces every day, it seems face masks have slipped into that luxury category where they’re reserved for girls nights and spa nights. Next time you’re stressed, instead of saying you don’t have enough time, set aside 15-20 minutes to enjoy a relaxing evening with a face mask. Not only will your skin thank you, but taking the time to do something good for yourself is the ultimate reset.

Try the Purifying Charcoal Mask or the Detoxifying Clay Mask.

4. When Stressed, Find Child’s Pose

Just like meditation, reaping the benefits of yoga doesn’t require a full blown hot yoga class. Simply roll out your yoga mat and move through a few of your favorite poses. It can be tempting to get into the mindset of, “If I don’t have time for a class, why bother at all?”, but take a moment to simply fold forward, step into downward facing dog, or even pause in child’s pose. Notice how good you instantly feel by taking on a new shape and moving your body.

           

5. Find Some Solitude In The Bathtub

_C2A0275.jpg

Feeling like you just can’t get away? When life pulls at you in a million directions, you may dream of a weekend somewhere far away, but until then, treat yourself to an indulgent bath.

Magnesium soaks are the ultimate relief for body aches and tired muscles. Magnesium even promotes a deeper sleep. Pair that with your favorite essential oil (Lavender is great for relaxation), and you’ll feel instantly relaxed.

6. Wake Up Early & Face The Day

When you’re feeling overwhelmed and tired, the last thing you want to do is wake up early. But taking advantage of the first hours of the day can get you a head start on the tasks in front of you. Wake up early and tackle your biggest projects first. This will eliminate the looming stress of all you have to do. You may even want to wake up and workout or tackle some chores—whatever typically stresses you out midday, these are great things to do first thing in the morning to get them out of the way.

             

7. Tend To Your Feet 

Beat stress by massaging your feet. We carry a lot of our workload tensions and stress in our feet, so treating them to some self-massage can be incredibly rejuvenating.

As we mentioned earlier, magnesium is super beneficial in treating muscle pain and body aches, and this Magnesium Lotion with Peppermint will nurture your feet and provide a stress-relieving scent.

Whatever you decide to do today to banish stress, make sure to take care of yourself and set aside plenty of time to nurture your body, your skin, and your soul.

Let’s talk masks! We’re not talking Halloween costume masks, but the super relaxing kind of masks you might enjoy at the spa. While most people are dressing up this Halloween, we can’t get enough of our therapeutic and beneficial face masks!

In celebration of our Limited Edition Pumpkin Mask, we’ve decided to round up the many benefits of our three Jordan Essentials masks.

Here is everything you need to know about our Pumpkin Face Mask, Detoxifying Clay Mask, and Purifying Charcoal Mask.

JE-9.jpg
 

Pumpkin Face Mask

Pumpkin is truly a super fruit. It’s loaded with more than 100 beneficial nutrients and works as a superfood for the skin. Pumpkin brightens, replenishes, and renews skin, and it just so happens to smell amazing! As a face mask, it brings deep exfoliation and sloughing effects to dry, dull skin.

Pumpkin contains Vitamins A, C and E as well as antioxidants to help fight sun damage and wrinkles. Its fruit enzymes naturally exfoliate dead skin cells, while zinc and potassium combat redness.

Spiced with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, the mask takes advantage of cinnamon’s antifungal and antibacterial properties, ginger’s anti aging benefits, and nutmeg’s ability to even out skin discoloration.

Our Pumpkin Face Mask is only available through the end of October, so be sure to stock up before winter arrives and your skin is in desperate need of a nourishing mask.

 

Detoxifying Clay Mask

Our Detoxifying Clay Mask is great year-round due to its ability to remove pollutants from the skin and provide a deep clean. Made with Bentonite clay, this mask is suitable for all skin types and can even be used as a spot blemish treatment.

In addition to removing toxins and detoxifying the skin, Bentonite clay also treats oily skin and acne, and it removes any makeup clogged in the pores.

This clay mask also features safflower seed oil, apricot kernel oil, sweet almond oil, castor oil, sunflower oil, aloe, green tea, chamomile, and seaweed. The oils help moisturize the skin and nourish it with antioxidants. Aloe helps reduce the appearance of blemishes, as well as moisturize and heal the skin, while green tea is loaded with antioxidants that help with anti aging. Chamomile speeds up the healing process and seaweed hydrates the skin. The combination of moisturizing, hydrating, and healing make this a great mask for all seasons and all skin types.

_C2A0714 (1).jpg

Purifying Charcoal Mask

The Purifying Charcoal Mask is an essential for your beauty cabinet. If you’re not using activated charcoal in your skincare routine yet, then you’ll definitely want to learn about the many benefits of charcoal.

Charcoal removes impurities from the skin and leaves behind a healthier, clearer complexion. Using a charcoal face mask will provide you with brighter skin tone.

Due to its ability to remove bacteria and dead skin cells from the skin, charcoal is able to heal acne. The antibacterial properties of charcoal allow it to lift bacteria from the pores, purify the pores, and improve overall skin tone. Charcoal rids your skin of acne-causing elements like excess sebum, clogged pores, and dead skin buildup.

Got oily skin? Charcoal can even mattify oily skin by balancing the oil secretion on the skin. If you have oily, blemish-prone skin, a charcoal face mask is especially beneficial.

Jordan Essentials face masks are made from the highest quality and natural ingredients, so you know you are pampering your skin the healthy way.

No matter how many hours of sleep we get, it always seems that we wake up to that alarm far too early wanting more. Since we aren’t out and about as much as we may be used to (and Daylight Savings is quickly approaching), now is a great time to really focus on our sleeping habits.

As important as it is to get enough sleep at night, it’s almost equally as important to be getting good sleep, so we’re talking quality over quantity. Of course it is still important to be getting the recommended 7-9 hours per night, but if you are waking up multiple times throughout the night, then that just won’t cut it.

_C2A0670 (1).jpg

Maybe you have issues falling asleep or simply staying asleep; either way, here are some tips to help you get the best night sleep yet.

We all know consistency can be difficult to achieve, but it does play a major role in how well you sleep and your body’s natural tendency to sleep on schedule. Have a set bedtime and wake up time, and you will train your body to be tired and awake at a consistent time of the day. This will help you sleep more soundly through the night.

As tempting as it is to catch up on some ‘zzzs’ on the weekend, stick to your schedule and your internal clock will thank you during the work week.

Have a bedtime routine! Choose to do something that you enjoy and is relaxing every night before bed. This can be taking a warm bubble bath or spending 30 minutes reading your favorite book. Choose a relaxing activity you can do every night and stick to it! This will signal to your body that it is time for bed.

         

Incorporate essential oils! We love using our Sleep Essential Oil Roll On  when we are ready to relax and get some shut eye after a long day. This roll-on features essential oils lavender, neroli, sweet orange, and chamomile.

Simply apply to hands, feet, or temples and breathe deeply before going to sleep. Ages 2+.

_C2A0657.jpg

Understand your body’s circadian rhythm. Sounds complex, but it is just a formal term for your body’s internal clock. Circadian rhythm is the reason you sleep better when you have a set schedule! Circadian rhythm also explains why you should avoid screens before going to bed.

The rhythm is designed to regulate your body’s natural tendency to be tired and awake. So why should we be avoiding bright lights, such as your TV, phone, etc., at least an hour before bed? Your body correlates light with being awake and dark with being tired. So avoiding your screens at night and exposing yourself to natural light in the mornings will help your body’s internal clock create a consistent sleeping schedule.

Exercise is another way to improve your sleeping habits. This doesn’t mean you need to spend two hours vigorously working out everyday (more power to you if you do!), but even some light physical activity throughout the day can improve your sleep habits. Sometimes life can be busy making it difficult to sneak in some physical activity, but try to work in a 20 minute walk in the morning to get you going and again after lunch to keep you going!

Be aware of what you eat and drink close to bedtime. Limit alcohol consumption before getting ready for bed because although a few glasses of wine with dinner may make you sleepy, too much and it can actually inhibit the quality of sleep you will get. You should also avoid eating overly heavy or spicy meals within 2-3 hours of going to sleep. However, if you are hungry again by bedtime, eat a light snack because you don’t want to try falling asleep hungry.

Like we said earlier, it is important to take some needed time to focus on getting that quality, consistent sleep every night, and you will notice that you begin waking up more rejuvenated and ready to take on the day!

We are entering upon a unique holiday season where most of our shopping will be done online, and now more than ever, we’re in need of brightening each other’s lives with loving, thoughtful gifts that bring about health and prosperity.

This week, we are sharing advice on holiday shopping, buying natural, good-for-you gifts, and what Jordan Essentials has in store this season.

It’s Never Too Early To Start Shopping For The Holidays

It’s time we break out of the habit of waiting until stores are laden with holiday products and decorated trees and gift wrapping options.

Shopping Early Limits Stress In An Already Stressful Year: Get a jumpstart on your holiday shopping to make this season less stressful. With COVID-19 still limiting travel and shopping, it’s the best year to reduce stress wherever possible. Imagine how nice it would be to get your shopping out of the way so you can spend the season cherishing your loved ones and enjoying the holiday spirit.

Shopping Early Helps Your Pocket: Instead of waiting until the last minute to shop for gifts, spread out your purchases over the course of the next few months in order to save yourself the headache of an irregular month, financially. Make a plan for what to buy each month and budget it out. You’ll save yourself from stress, and you’ll save money by budgeting ahead of time.

This Holiday Season, Give The Gift Of Health

This year is all about boosting immunity and longevity. Whether you’re gathering with family and maybe even traveling, or you’re simply spending the holidays at home, strengthening your immune system is more important than ever. This means giving the gift of health this season.

Gift Your Loved Ones With Natural Products: You can never go wrong with buying a loved one soaps, beauty products, essentials oils…or even hand sanitizer! These are all things we use, so why not gift the people in your life with seasonally scented natural products that can support their health too?

Check out our Holiday Happy Box , which features a Pomegranate Cider Lotion Bar, Soothing Magnesium Stick, and Pomegranate Bar Soap. You can choose between our special “gift tag” label that is perfect for gift giving or our standard label for your Holiday Happy Box.

 

Give The Gift Of An At-Home Spa Experience: With it being more difficult to go out and treat yourself, gift your loved ones with products that bring the spa to their homes. Gifts like face masks, bath salts, and essential oils will instantly transform a home into a therapeutic spa!

_C2A0425.jpg

Help your loved ones detox and cleanse with our Headband & Charcoal Mask Bundle , perfect for gifting! This set includes a spa mask and purifying charcoal mask.

Know someone who is obsessed with essential oils? Our Essential Oil Mini Set comes with a compact case to hold the oils. This set combines some of the most popular essential oil scents, and our seasonal blends of Orange & Lavender, and Lemon & Peppermint.

Show Your Loved Ones You’re There For Them During This Time: It’s been a difficult year of not being able to see your loved ones as often. Show them you care about their health and wellbeing, while also showing them that you’ve been thinking of them throughout this tough year. Give them the gift of hand sanitizer as a friendly reminder that you’ve got their backs!

                 
_C2A0457%281%29.jpg

Who wouldn’t want to stock up on some more hand sanitizer? Our hand sanitizer bundle comes with two holiday-friendly essential oils, Orange & Lavender and Lemon & Peppermint, perfect for boosting the benefits and fragrance of your hand sanitizer.

Whatever you decide to gift this year, make sure you treat yourself too. Use uplifting essential oils to brighten your home. Nurture yourself with oatmeal lotions and magnesium sticks. Take lots of baths, listen to holiday music, and don’t forget to video call anyone you can’t be with in person this year!
