What To Do When You Need to Mellow Out
Using the Best Tools to Take Time for Yourself and Relax
“Stress” should be every mom’s middle name. We face so many stressful situations on a daily basis there should be a medal for participation. And at the end of the day I know I can have a difficult time truly winding down. Sure, I meditate nightly, but not all meditations are as successful as others, especially after a long busy day. Now I know that if I need to really mellow out I can use the tools I have from my Mellow Box from Moodboxx. It is so relaxing, moms, trust me. You want to try it too.

Make the Time and Take the Time
As a busy mom, it is incredibly difficult to find time for myself. I have to set clear boundaries when I want some time to relax. Baths are one of my favorite relaxing activities to help mellow out. The problem is that my kids love baths too. So when I want to take a bath for me I try to wait until they are asleep in bed or I say, “you are not allowed to bug me for the next 20 minutes unless it’s an emergency.” They usually don’t make it, but I at least get some time to just soak and relax.
The Mellow box makes my baths amazing as it includes the Life Flower Hypnosis Bath Bomb with crystal. Now, not everyone is into the whole healing-crystals thing, but after working in a rock and gem shop for 5 years, I’m definitely a believer. So yes, the bath bomb has a beautiful tumbles amethyst in it, and if you don’t believe in crystal healing, no worries. The coconut, CBD, and lavender oils are incredibly calming and left my skin so smooth and soft. The beautiful dried lavender, chamomile, and witch hazel not only made it look like lounging in a nature-filled hot spring, but they also have calming properties.
Take Care of Yourself with the Little Things
It’s the little things that help me each and every day. There is nothing like taking an extra 5-10 minute after a shower or bath to moisturize my skin. It’s just one simple act of self-care that is easily overlooked. It’s easy to just rush through everything after you finally have your hair washed for the week. I’ve been using the Little Flower Company Soft CBD Body Oil and I’ve been in heaven. Yes, it’s pure oil, but it smells amazing. Like sweet flowers, and amber and musk. And it isn’t greasy! My skin loves it as the weather is turning colder and a bit dryer. My skin soaks it right up and there is no residue left behind on my white sheets. I dab a little bit on my neck as a perfume, I love it so much. It is possibly the most relaxing scent I can imagine.
Mellow Out Insomnia
I have suffered from Insomnia my entire life. For as long as I can remember, even as a little child, I would lay in bed for hours after bedtime just waiting for sleep to come. So, I use topical aromatherapy, like the Life Flower CBD Roll-On full of Safflower Oil, Valerian Root Extract, Therapeutic-Grade Lavender Essential Oil, Organic Hemp-Derived Cannabidiol Isolate, Organic Lavender & Chamomile Buds, Organic Sunflower Lecithin, and a Cleansed & Charged Amethyst. The CBD and lavender and valerian help me relax enough to actually fall asleep. It’s amazing.
I also love melatonin to help make me fall asleep and stay asleep. The La Mend Nite Nite CBD patch contains mellowing CBD and melatonin paired for the perfect way to drift off to sleep. I just put it on my wrist and leave it overnight. I have not slept that solidly in years.
There is nothing better as a mom than getting a little treat that is just for you. No sharing allowed. All of the oils and ingredients used in every product in the Mellow Box are certified organic. I don’t have to worry about extra junk going into my body. The Big Picture Farm CBD Caramellows Goat Milk Caramels are my favorite thing right now. I’m sad there are only 4, so I’m trying to save them for special times. They are so soft, perfectly sweet, and taste amazing. Plus they make the perfect treat before bedtime with the CBD oil in them. Sweets before bed? Don’t tell the kids!
The all-around star of the box is the Moodjuice Mellow Blueberry 500MG CBD Oil. Now another reason it’s tough for me to fellow out is that I’m constantly in some level of pain from fibromyalgia. CBD oil is wonderful for helping to alleviate the pain and relax me enough to just truly take it easy. If you’ve ever had flavored CBD oil you’ll know that most are okay, but the flavor isn’t much to write home about. I actually enjoy taking this Blueberry Moodjuice. Yes, it still has the CBD taste as well, but it somehow blends well with the blueberry so I hardly notice. I just let it sit under my tongue for at least 30 seconds and I’m good to go.
Keep it Mellow
The best thing about the oil is I can take it anytime. If I’m getting stressed out in the middle of the day over work and school and kids, I can take half a dropper and I’m feeling better. It certainly does it’s job to help me mellow out. The people at MoodBoxx developed their Moodjuice blends wonderfully. Every ingredient it independently tested for potency and quality. And it certainly shows. So if you want to mellow out too, use code MOODBOXXMOMS15 to get 15% off when you check it out.
