Hockey Mom Essential Oils: 4 Soaps Every Hockey Mom Needs

Written by Emily Erson

Maintaining our grinder reputation is a lot of pressure. After all, we don’t want to be called soccer moms. Hockey moms are expected to juggle everything.

Just look at what our plate consists of.

• Practices
• Games
• Homework
• Dinner
• Lunches
• A full-time job
• Traveling all over the place
• And this is just the very beginning of the list.

It can become so overwhelming that we forget which way we are going. And sometimes I feel like the direction I need to be heading is therapy to wrap my head around my to-do list.

Heck, I’ve considered faking an illness in hopes extended hospital stay. My thoughts are it would be a relaxing retreat complete with doctors and nurses to make everyone leave me alone. But, since the insurance companies frown upon this type of fraud, I thought I should seek a better solution.

But, medical professionals’ attention is best focused on those who actually need their help.  And, since the insurance companies frown upon this type of fraud, I thought I should seek a better solution.

Hockey Mom Essential Oils: There is a Solution to Crazy

No mom is safe in the bathroom. Mom locking the door is usually a cue for a sibling brawl. But, I’ve found that is the safest place for dodging the kids because you can turn the water on and pretend you don’t hear them.

That’s when I came up with a plan. I needed to find a way to use the bathroom to get my shit together–literally. So, I sought out a solution.  Essential oil soaps! They give you an excuse to escape the madness, and they help are perfect for any hockey scenario.

That’s right, those miracle plant oils offer the perfect amount of therapeutic assistance for those of us teetering on edge.  So, I’ve made my own list mom essential oils–most of which come in the form of soap.

My plan is to use my hockey mom essential oils and their healing capabilities to help me balance myself mentally and emotionally.

I had to do something about this heaping full plate because I didn’t want to lose it on a ref and get tossed from a game.

So, if you are looking for a way to get your head in check for the start of the season, check out these hockey mom essential oils.

 

Lavender Martini

Yes, that’s right it’s a martini for the tub with a hint of lavender to keep you from losing your mind on the next person who crosses your path. I highly recommend using this soap the mornings before games with a rival. It’s likely to help you keep your mouth shut when the psycho dad vicariously living through his kid gets his motor going.

Calm

Enough said. When you need to escape from the being in 27 different places at one time, head to the bathroom, a bottle of wine in hand, and tune out the world. It’s made with the perfect blend lavender and chamomile essential to relax your mind.

What hockey mom doesn’t need a few minutes of relaxation? I know, you’ve forgotten what it feels like to relax. Most of us have. But, if you need help remembering, this is an excellent way to try.

Serenity

I use this one when I have to travel to away rinks that have hometown refs that suck. I make sure to get up early and shower with this soap. It’s one of my jobs to avoid embarrassing my skater and my husband with my strongly worded opinions about people who can’t do their jobs correctly.

Luckily, Serenity soap has lavandin, ylang-ylang, and cardamon essential oils that offer the perfect aromatherapy. They keep me calm when I am forced to be OK with terrible calls.

If you are trying to get a handle on sparring with the refs, this is the soap you need to use before a game.

Coffee Mint

Hello! Coffee and hockey moms. Is there any other combination? When you know you need to get up and get going, this is the soap you need. It’s ideal for exfoliating first thing in the morning. Knock off that dry skin so that you can head to the rink and get chapped all over again.

Take Aways

Die-hard hockey momming is rough.  The pressure is like no other.

A hockey mom’s job is to show up at the rink, cowbell in hand, ready to throw down with the refs and the other team’s parents. It’s a lot of pressure. And, it creates a lot of worries.

“What is the other team’s parents cowbell is louder than mine?”
“What if they say something more witty to the refs than me?”
“What if my kid gives me that look that says, ‘Shut up, mom?’”

Let’s be honest with each other. There are days when a meltdown from the pressure of managing everything isn’t uncommon.

So, if I need to get efficient with my relaxation—hence combining the right essential oils with soaps and locking ourselves in the bathroom–then I am jumping on it.

If you want to get double the calm, try running a diffuser with cleansing pure lemon oil.  It will purify the air while you are escaping giving you twice the peace of mind.

Honestly, it’s better than insurance fraud.
