Beauty | Calming & Relaxing Bedtime Routine!


Hi, friends!

I've found a new, natural skin care company that I love and want to share with you! Utama Spice is a 100% natural skin care company based in Bali, Indonesia. Their products have helped me create the perfect, calming bedtime routine. All of their products are hand-made from ethically and sustainably sourced raw materials and almost all of their products contain coconut oil and essential oils. Utama Spice works to support and enhance the local organic, bee and seaweed farming communities to ensure all of the raw materials are produced in an ethical and sustainable way. I love that they value transparency and how and what their products are made of!

Their body-care items are so gentle and natural that I love applying them to my skin right after a warm bath. If you want to see the routine and hear more of my thoughts on the products, just keep scrollin'!

Calming & Relaxing Bedtime Routine:
1. Light a candle
I like to start my relaxing evenings off by lighting a candle. I love to have a relaxing low light and calming scent to set the mood for my bath. This clearing candle has a wonderful, calming scent. It's 100% natural made from pure beeswax and coconut oil and infused with essential oils!

2. Take a bubble bath with lavender oil
I like to put a little bit of liquid body soap in my bath water. It doubles as body wash and bubble bath!  I've said it many times, but the scent of lavender relaxes me. This soap contains pure lavender oils which really have soothed me and helped me unwind before bedtime. This is my favorite nighttime soap. If you have trouble unwinding at night, give this a try! I love that it's a mixture of natural plant oils infused with plant extracts. It's gentle enough for the whole body and all skin types.

3. Apply moisturizing body butter
My skin always feels extra dry when I get out of the bath. One of my biggest pet-peeves is dry feeling skin! I have a weird phobia about it. I can't stand holding a piece of chalk or something really dusty ha ha. I know, it sounds like such a diva! But it's really not that! I just mentally can't stand that feeling. Utama Spice body butters are a blend of coconut oil, seaweed and aloe vera. It's the perfect moisturizing blend. I've also enjoyed the Tropical Flower scent! It contains Ylang-Ylang essential oil which gives it a relaxing aroma.

4. Use a healing body balm
This is the first body balm that I've ever used and I'm hooked now! I've loved applying this to sore muscles. The Fresh Soul balm contains a soothing blend of essential oils that specifically help dry, irritated skins and even minor cuts!

5. Put hair oil on split ends
When my hair's wet, I like to put a little bit of oil on the ends. I get terrible split ends so I'm often searching for good oils that works. I've really liked using this one so far! It contains cananga, patchouli and lavender essential oils. It has an awesome scent! I'm a patchouli person so I'm really drawn to a scent like this. Utama Spice hair oils are made of coconut oil so they feel super moisturizing on your locks!

6. Spray lavender mist on your pillow
One of my best tips for a relaxing bedtime routine is to spray a little lavender mist on your pillows!
This Lavender Fields body mist has been so amazing. It's a hydrating spray for your skin and I've loved adding it to my pillows at nighttime. It creates such a relaxing mood. It's infused with natural essential oils that smell super calming. This mist is my favorite!

The Utama Spice history is so cool! It started in 1989 when friends Dayu Suci and Melanie Templer made natural skin care treatments for their loved ones using traditional Balinese remedies. The established Utama Spice as a way to pass on Bali's herbal knowledge and traditions. They saw that the techniques were quickly being lost with the rise of modern, mass produced products in the cosmetics industry. The company stills remains a company business with Melanie's daughter, Ria running it now. The majority of the team is made up of young women from local villages who are able to grow their skills, build independence and work in a dynamic work environment. 

What are your go-to product for relaxation?

Love,
