Wedding Day Survival Kit
My little sister got married recently! She's the baby of the family and it was the last wedding for our family, such a beautiful and emotional day!
It has been our family tradition to have a little survival kit for the bride and bridesmaids for the day... Our survival kits contains things like safety pins, hollywood tape, lip balm, needle and thread, bobby pins, bandaids and anything else that may come in handy for little emergencies and hiccups along the way. I think our idea was originally inspired by Jennifer Lopez in The Wedding Planner. Hehe. As we were creating a survival kit for the day, I couldn’t help but include some oils and thought I’d share what packed for any other blushing brides to be out there!
Lavender, Cedarwood and Frankincense
To promote a deep, restful sleep the night before... Every Bride needs their beauty sleep!!
Balance and Wild Orange
A must have for every bride... this blend has been tried and tested by many a stressed out bride and they have all testified to the fact that it eased anxious feelings and helped them to relax and enjoy their day to the full! Apply to wrists and back of neck and breathe in deeply whenever needed.
A natural alternative to gums and mints.. pop on in your mouth whenever you want to freshen your breath or need a burst of energy!
A spot or blemish has appeared on your big day? Never fear, Tea Tree is here! Apply Tea Tree to the blemish directly and it will help dry it out and clear it up ASAP.
Correct X Cream
For any little emergencies, sores and blisters that occur throughout the day.
doTERRA's Whisper or Passion Blends are beautiful, natural alternatives to perfume so that you can reduce your chemical exposure but still smell divine on your big day! Whisper is more musky and Passion more floral in scent. I packed these two as options for the bridal party but also custom made a perfume for my little sister to use on her big day.
My choices for Kelly's blend were Ylang Ylang, Litsea and Frankincense essential oils, mixed with the Balance & Citrus Bliss blends. This created a perfume that smelt delightful and was both calming and uplifting, the perfect combination for any bride!
In case of a sore throat, add a drop under your tongue and party on!
Use daily in the lead up to the wedding to maintain a strong immune system. Apply directly to soothe and reduce the appearance of a cold sore.
I hope these help your day run smoothly and without any panic!
