Here’s some suggestions for ways to love up your body using all your five senses during the love month…
Treat yourself to a long, luxurious massage and when you come home, continue treating yourself with a long luxurious bath. Then love up your body some more with luxurious skin care products. I LOVE all the raw, organic, living products from The Body Deli. Check them out and treat yourself special.
There is a reason that spas play the music they do. It put us in a state of relaxation. So while in the tub, or just hanging out at home, put on some soothing spa music. Don’t have any in your CD collection? No problem, create your own spa channel at Pandora.com. Just type in ‘spa’ and you’ll find several options.
Smell is one of our most powerful senses. In a simple in-breath, smells can transport us to memories of people and times past. Aromatherapy is used to actually change our physical and psychological state. Surround yourself with a sent you love. Dab some essential oil on your wrists or burn a scented candle in your home. I love Lumen Soy Candles. They are hand made with lots of love, don’t have the nasty off-gasing of paraffin candles, and come in lots of unusual, delicious scents like Ginger Marmalade, Current Fig and Bamboo Teak. Order yourself some here.
Treat yourself to an entire day of gorgeous, delicious, organic, whole, raw foods. Start with a beautiful bowl of fruit for breakfast. Make a heaping gorgeous spa salad full of baby greens, chopped veggies and sprouts for lunch dressed with a little olive oil and fresh lemon. For dinner, venture out and try a my Cashew Cream Sauce Over Noodles or the Butternut Squash Cous Cous. Finally, treat yourself to a yummy slice of Flourless Chocolate Cake for dessert. Your taste buds will love this one. YUM!
Regardless of your age, shape or size, or gender, bring out your inner sexiness. Dance in front of the mirror. Put on the sexy underwear. Have those boudoir photos taken. It doesn’t need to be for anyone else. Just you. Just a reminder to see yourself as the hot, sexy, lovable thing you really are.
