Claire Organics' 5 Ways to Spend Christmas at Home This Year

Claire Organics' 5 Ways to Spend Christmas at Home This Year


It's the most wonderful time of the year.. 

But the virus and pandemic are still being such nuisances in our lives. Even though Christmas might not be the same as previous years with the countdown or Secret Santa parties, we can still enjoy the holiday the homely way.

And even if you're alone, it doesn't mean you're lonely. Instead, take this as a chance to pamper yourself and indulge yourself in a perfect self-love moment. 

1. Stay off social media and create a Christmas ambience in the house
Yes, try to remove social media from your life for just a day. Stay off social media like Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat, and just focus on yourself and be present. Meanwhile, you can still talk and stay connected with your family through video calls or Skype. But, maybe don't swipe to another socializing platform unconsciously where there may be a slight possibility that you would be trapped in TikTok for hours!

Once you're away from your phone, try to create the perfect Christmas mood by blending and diffusing essential oils. Some of the best blends we recommend are:

Magical Christmas Blend (To diffuse)
  • Sweet Orange 5 drops
  • Cedarwood 3 drops

  • Frankincense 2 drops

  • Rose Geranium 2 drops

Joyful Christmas Candy Blend (To diffuse)
  • Bergamot 8 drops

  • Peppermint 2 drops

  • Ylang Ylang 2 drops


2. Cook yourself a nice dinner or take away from your favourite restaurant
Although staying alone has forced you (most of you, at least) to learn to cook like a chef especially during the lockdown, you can still prepare a feast for yourself on Christmas. Or just order from your favourite restaurant too. Pair your meal with your favourite bottle of champagne or wine because you deserve it. 

You can also pick a great show or movie that you always wanted to watch, or just simply enjoy eating your dinner mindfully in silence and enjoy living in the moment. For a better experience, light a Cozy Night candle for a relaxing scent of Vintage Vertiver, Frankincense, Sweet Freesia, Rose Geranium, Tangy Lime & Fresh Pine for a little zest and joy.

Or if you're a more adventurous person, try Fairytale Bliss candle that is refreshing yet sweet, delicate yet exciting with scents of White Jasmine, Neroli, Lavender, Rose Geranium, and a touch of Wild Verbena & Tangy Bergamot. 

3. Bathtub time! Well, if you don't have a bathtub, a warm shower is perfect too
Relaxation awaits! Firstly, to create the perfect bath, you'll need to create an ideal ambience.

Tip 1: If you're loving the Cozy Night/ Fairytale Bliss candle scents, bring them along to your bathroom and choose a safe spot to place them.

Tip 2: Prepare your favourite drink (wine/ champagne/ tea, you name it). 

Tip 3: Decide if you want to catch up on your Netflix shows, K-Drama, read a book, or even just chill with music. Just make sure to prepare a hand towel nearby to avoid getting your valuables wet.

Tip 4: Add sea salt scrubs to your warm bath to achieve maximum relaxation. Choose between Rosehips or Lavender body scrub; both are really great for reducing stress, enhancing blood circulation, detoxification, improving skin health, and decreasing inflammation.

Rosehip is perfect for ladies who love roses. It has a whitening and anti-aging effect too.
Lavender is perfect for deep relaxation. It's great for people with sensitive skin too.

You can also apply some to your skin too! Trust us, your bathtub experience will never be better. On the other hand, you can use the body scrub after your shower too. Here's how. 

Before you towel dry: 

  1. Gently massage on damp skin in a circular motion, focus more on rough skin areas.
  2. Rinse well with water.
  3. Towel dry.
  4. Enjoy the softness of the skin.
  5. For extra dry skin, apply Rosehip Body Oil after towel dry. 

Voilà! Ultimate goodness for your skin and ultimate relaxation for your body and mind.

4. Reflect, and get ready for bed

Now that you've finished enjoying your bath/ shower, it's time to get ready for bed. 
Get into your comfy pyjamas, and carry out your skincare routine. While you're at the last step of your routine, add 1-2 drops of Claire's Rosehip or Lavender face and body oil for a deep moisturisation, and use this time to reflect on what you did and how you feel today. Remember, it's important to acknowledge your feelings too. 

5. Have a good night
Congratulations! You've done well on this homely Christmas adventure that you spent loving and pampering yourself. It's time for a good night's sleep; spray some pillow mist onto your pillow, put on the comfy eye pillow, and off you to drift to sleep. 

Have a wonderful Christmas, sweet dreams ❤️
