Self-Care for the Body with Essentials By Nature

This year, I’ve decided to dedicate the entire month of March to self-care on my blog. Each week, I’ll be talking all about how you can take better care of your mind, body, and soul.

This week, I’ll be focussing on self-care for the body with help from Essentials By Nature! For those who don’t know, Essentials By Nature is a local Edmonton skin & body care brand that believes in promoting wellness through the power of nature. All of their products are made from natural essential oils and other plant-based, all-natural ingredients and are free of chemicals, parabens, dyes, synthetic fragrances, sulphates, and formaldehyde. AMAZING, I know.

I recently got to try out three different Essentials By Nature products and have been using them religiously ever since. So, I thought I’d share a bit about how I incorporate these products into my own self-care routine!


I’m the type of person that takes on WAY too many things, and this can often leave my body feeling incredibly tense and stressed. This essential oil blend of lavender, sweet orange, bergamot, and cedar wood is the perfect way to soothe my body after a stressful day. Usually, when I’m getting ready for bed, I’ll roll a bit of the Calm Roll On on my temples, back of my neck, and my wrists. The scents help me to relax, stay calm, and drift off to sleep.

I struggle with anxiety, and it has always been heightened at bedtime. Before bed, I’ll spray the Calm Body & Air Mist in my room to aid in relieving any anxiety that I may be feeling. This mist is also a great product to bring to the gym! I often spray some on myself post-workout to help my body relax and unwind.

If you live in Edmonton, you understand how dry our skin gets in the winter. For me, hand cream is a necessity during the winter months, but it’s often difficult to find an all-natural cream that does the job. That’s why I was blown away by how well this hand Cream worked for my dry skin! I usually apply a small amount on my hands, knees, and elbows before bed and always wake up to more nourished, softer skin in the morning!

A huge thank you goes out to Essentials by Nature for partnering with me this month to promote self-care through all-natural, locally-made products! If you’d like to check out more products from Essentials by Nature, click here to visit their website!

I encourage you to join me in practicing self-care at least once a week during the month of March. To help document your weekly self-care and inspire others to do the same, I’ve created an Instagram Story template that you can use, which can be found in the @paigesimpsonyeg story highlights!

Until next time,
