Summer is officially here, and if I’m being honest, I care more about the food on the table and the company I’m enjoying it with, than the salt in my hair and the sand in my toes.
Picnics sporadically placed out on the grass, wet Birkenstocks left out to dry on the back porch, splurging on flowers at the market, and finding any excuse to bring everyone together for a quick meal. Winter is long gone, and summer’s here to stay.
In the mess of spring cleaning, school ending and finalizing those summer beach trip plans, finding time to have friends over can seem like an afterthought. But, have no fear, playing perfect host is as simple as preparation and we’ve laid out a few tips for you.
Like most people, pulling ideas out of thin air does not come easy. So, use the internet and magazines to find what you like best. Pick a theme or stick to what you have in your own cabinets, but always remember, less is more. And if you’re in need of a little inspiration our Inspired Mood Boost is a blend of organic Peppermint, Chamomile & Sage, that creates a confident and freeing mood, which will ensure a perfectly planned party.
Once you have your ideas, it’s time to plan. Make lists and write out what you need. From groceries to decorations to place cards, seeing what you need will make your shopping trip, simple and quick. And might we suggest planning the menu as easy as possible. Less fuss and more time with guests. If you’re already a little overwhelmed, try Clarity Chakra Boost. Curated with organic Sacred Tulsi, Frankincense & Myrrh, one deep inhale of this mood boosting essential oil and you will be ready for whatever curve balls, may come your way. Or place a few chakra boosts on the coffee table to start a conversation about transformation, opening your heart and creating mindful practices.
After all the shopping trips and sending your husband on three separate last minute trips to the grocery store, it’s the day of the party, and your hostess hat should be firmly tightened. Setting up the décor should be a breeze and assembling your menu should take no time, since you planned everything out. Now it’s your chance to step back and revel in what you created and enjoy your time with friends and love ones. But before we forget, no great hostess lets their guests leave empty-handed. Our Joy Chakra Boost, is an award winning blend of Gardenia, Rose & Jasmine Absolute, that creates an uplifting and harmonizing mood, that will carry your guests over until the next party.
And if you've got anything left to give, spray Passion Room Boost on your sheets and pillow before sliding into bed and receive all that love back!
Be the guest of honor.
Invite yourself to your party.
Set the table for your queen.
Serve yourself the biggest helping.

Delight in your own company.”
