SLP 18: Self Love Quicky – The Body Boost Ritual Everybody Needs
29, Oct, 2020
“My goodness, this is one of the most beautiful rituals, the most inexpensive, most amazing gifts you could give yourself. The amount of emails and messages I have received, particularly from women, who have embraced this ritual where they have learnt to love their body’s up, they have learnt to really embrace who they are right here in the moment.”
We may be all guilty of it at times and many of us are often quick to criticise our body, be disappointed in it or abuse it. It is more common than we care to think so here is a daily ritual that could literally change your life and the way you treat your temple from here on in.
Think about how you feel when you stand naked in front of a mirror? If for some reason you cannot stand in front of the mirror every morning and say something nice, then you may find this ritual a lifesaver.
Just remember it’s ok to want to change your body, but aim for better health rather than weight loss or shape change. If the focus is on feeling better, there are fewer chances of disappointment when certain weight or size measurements are not achieved. Give yourself time to change if that is what you would like to happen. Don’t expect miracle creams or surgery to ‘fix’ you! The daily body boost ritual will have you honouring your body and nurturing it before you know it. The focus is on better health, not your size.

What you will need:
Essential oils or beautiful blends you love
A massage base oil like avocado or coconut or sweet almond
Magnesium Health Spray
A small glass or ceramic bowl
And your naked body!
Once you get out of the shower and pat yourself dry, choose three pure essential oils to support you throughout the day. You may have a long full-on day ahead so it would be important to choose oils that were going to be uplifting and enduring like Rosemary, Lemon, Peppermint, Myrrh, Lime or Basil. Or you could be feeling a little run down or tired so go for healing, stimulating oils like Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Pine, Ginger, Cypress or Orange. If your skin is dry and looking like it could do with some good nutrition, then go for the skin active oils like Frankincense, Rose, Palmarosa, Rosewood, Geranium or Bergamot.
There are many choices available to you, what is important is that you choose high-quality products and three oils that you like. The most wonderful thing about choosing your three essential oils is the fact that you are asking yourself every morning ‘How do I feel?’ Normally we are so busy getting everyone else ready or thinking about what we have to do for the day ahead that we forget the most important thing of all – and that is you. Acknowledge the body first thing every morning is a powerful way to set yourself up for a great day. It is all about your intention.
Energetic: Black Pepper, Lemon, Rosemary
Confident: Lime, Jasmine, Sandalwood
Uplifted: Bergamot, Peppermint, Rosewood or Rosemary
Endurance: Myrrh, Orange, Geranium
Sexy and Feminine: Ylang Ylang, Orange, Patchouli
Immune Booster: Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Lavender
Refreshed: Grapefruit, Pine, Cypress
Creative: Pine, Rosemary, Clary Sage
Celebratory: Orange, Clary Sage, Frankincense
Essential oils have the ability to work on an emotional level too. If you are not sure which oils to choose for your daily body boost then try one of these recipes to lift your mood. By doing this you not only help yourself but also the people around you will benefit!
Choose one drop of each oil and add to your teaspoon of massage base-oil. Rub briskly over the whole body from your toes to your head and take three deep breaths at the end holding both hands over the face saying something positive and genuine and real.
Good Mood Oils:
Pre-Menstrual: Clary Sage, Geranium, Orange
Tired: Rosemary, Lemon, Basil
Emotionally vulnerable: Rose, Geranium, Chamomile
Angry: Bergamot, Cypress, Chamomile
Anxious: Neroli, Lavender, Frankincense
Depressed: Clary Sage, Lime, Geranium
Negative: Juniper, Lime, Grapefruit
Fat and frumpy: Rose, Neroli, Jasmine
Stressed: Chamomile, Geranium, Rosewood
It doesn’t really matter how you rub your body as long as you go from head to toe or toe to head and do all over and really wake your body up and acknowledge every part of it. I tend to start at the toes and work my way up each leg, into the tummy region in a clockwise direction to support digestive functions, up over the chest and shoulders, across the lower back, buttocks and tops of thighs. Work as far as you can up the back and across the shoulder blades, then work down each arm. Finish scraping the bowl and using upward strokes into the neck, then complete by compressing and inhaling onto the face.
This really is one of the most lovely things you can do for yourself and it really is simple, effective and not at all time-consuming.
I challenge you to take this morning ritual on and see how you are feeling after four weeks. Everyone I have met who has taken this on solidly for the full 28 days have become committed devotees for life. Your skin will feel fantastic, there will be no more dry skin on your body, but more than that, you will feel better on the inside. You will feel special, nurtured and energised.
If you would like to make the whole ritual even quicker and more simple then we have a range of amazing Body Boost Oil blends already made up with the magnesium and correct ratio of oils to make your choices easy.
