Husband’s Loving Hands

Can you think of a completely natural couple’s ritual that brings good sleep and feels great? One that is soothing, low cost, and doesn’t require a great deal of effort or attention?

I can.

And is just so happens that my husband is great at them. 🙂

It’s back massage!

  • Some chronic pain
  • Anxiety
  • Stress

We have an awesome massager that originally came from The Body Shop

Straight after massage, we usually release lots of endorphins with dry brushing.

Dry Brushing may:

  • Open pores
  • Exfoliate the skin
  • Stimulate the lymphatic system
  • Increase circulation
  • Help aid relaxation
  • Be bad for people with very sensitive skin


A dry brush is like a hair brush for your skin.

Finally we take out the Lavendar Moisturiser

Lavender seems to have:

  • Antibacterial effects
  • Antifungal effects
  • Antianxiety effects
  • Antidepressant effects
  • Some pain relieving effects


Cheap Cheats Recipe for Lavender Moisturizer:

  • Mix carefully

  • Store in a container with an air-tight lid, preferably screw top
  • Avoid extreme temperatures
  • Spot test thoroughly before applying
  • Discontinue use if irritation occurs and/or add less or different essential oils next time
