Celebrating Philippine Independence Day: Relax, Recharge, and Reconnect with Oleia Oils 💛💙💖

Hey there! 🙌


As an adult balancing the chaos of work, social life, and personal wellness, I'm absolutely stoked for today, the Philippine Independence Day holiday. June 12 isn’t just a celebration of our nation's freedom—it’s a chance to relax, recharge, and enjoy some well-deserved downtime. 😌 Whether you're like me and plan to take it easy or you’re out and about hitting up all the exciting events, Oleia Oils will be our best companion to keep us feeling great all day long. 😉


Philippine Independence Day, or Araw ng Kalayaan, is a significant date in our history. On June 12, 1898, Emilio Aguinaldo proclaimed our independence from Spanish colonial rule, marking the birth of our nation. This day symbolizes our ancestors' bravery and the Filipino spirit of resilience and unity. 🕊️ It’s a time to remember our past and celebrate the freedoms we enjoy today.


For me, this holiday is all about taking a break and indulging in some self-care. My day kicks off with, you guessed it, sleeping in a bit later than usual. 🙌 There’s nothing like waking up without an alarm. I start my day with my usual morning Oleia application and a gentle stretch to wake my body up. ☀️ The blend of olive oil, pomegranate seed oil, and moringa seed oil in Oleia works wonders, enhancing the relaxation I get from each stretch. And if you’re planning to kick off your day with some rigorous physical activity 🏋️‍♀️, Oleia Oil can be your best friend too! It helps warm up those muscles and takes care of them after your workout.


By mid-morning, I’ll take a walk inside the village. So I can enjoy a bit of fresh air and the beauty of nature. I always bring my Oleia Oil along, just in case I need to soothe any unexpected skin irritations like insect bites or sunburn. 🐜 If you’re heading to events like the Kalayaan Obstacle Course, the Love Lokal Tiangge, Musikalayaan stage, or enjoying free movie screenings, having Oleia Oil on hand is a must. Whether it’s tired calves from all the walking or a sudden headache, Oleia will get you back on your feet in no time! 😊


Don’t forget to enjoy Filipino food today, whether at a restaurant or, like me, at home to feel the holiday vibes more. Whether it’s lechon, adobo, sinigang, halo-halo with all our wonderful kakanins, and more, it’ll be a feast for our taste buds for sure. And if you happen to overindulge (which I probably will 🙈), just grab that Oleia bottle and rub it on your tummy to help. 😉


As evening falls, I prepare a cozy setup for a movie marathon featuring tales from Filipino heroes. Watching films like "Heneral Luna" and "Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral" fills me with pride and a sense of connection to our history. With snacks in one hand and my trusty purple bottle in the other, I’ll keep the relaxation going. 🍿 If you’re out watching these films at public screenings, and it’s been a long day, take out your Oleia Oil and let it soothe you so you stay comfortable during the show. 🎥


Days like this really make me appreciate how lucky I am to live in peaceful times and just be the phone-scrolling, work-going, relaxing girl (woman? 🫣) that I am. 👩‍💻 Independence Day is a reminder of our nation's strength and resilience. With a deep sense of gratitude for the freedom we now have, I take this time for myself to rest and celebrate in my own way. Whether you're taking it easy like me or joining in on the day’s festivities, Oleia Oil can help make your day even more special, relaxed, and pain-free.


Here's to a soothing and restful Philippine Independence Day—filled with moments of relaxation, self-care, and appreciation for the freedoms we cherish.


Cheers to freedom, and cheers to making the most of our time, however we choose to spend it! Show me your bottle and I’ll show you mine? ‘Til next time! 💛💙❤️
