Aromatherapy has never been easier
I love surrounding myself with scent—whether in the form of perfume, a candle or an oil diffuser. A fresh fragrance is always great, but one with aromatherapy benefits is even better. As an essential oil amateur, I haven’t started mixing and matching to create customized blends that address concerns like stress, difficulty falling asleep or just a bad mood—but I don’t have to because Scentered has already done the work for all of us.
If you believe in the power of aromatherapy (or you want to start), Scentered’s Ultimate Relaxation Kit is the ideal way to de-stress, rest easier or put a smile on your face. With these three stick-based balms, all you have to do apply to your pulse points, take a few deep breaths and let the oils and botanicals take care of the rest.
The “Be Happy,” which features calming lemon myrtle along with uplifting pink grapefruit and spearmint, is sitting front and center on my desk for those times when I need a little pick-me-up. The “Sleep Well” is on my night table because the blend of relaxing lavender, ylang ylang, palmarosa and floral notes does a great job helping me nod off at the end of the day. I actually gave the “De-Stress” to my husband because he could use the natural tension relief its mix of mandarin, chamomile an neroli provides (and he actually uses it!). Just so you know, Scentered offers "Love," "Escape" and "Focus" scents as well.
Regardless of what ails you at any given time, one of the biggest upsides of these aromatherapy balms is that they force you to stop whatever you’re doing and be present in the moment. Just the simple act of closing your eyes and focusing on your breathing goes a long way, and Scentered makes the experience even better.
