Surprisingly enough I’ve only mildly experimented with aromatherapy in the past. It all started when I was trying to help treat my horrible insomnia, and so I had started playing around with aromas to get my mind in a relaxed state for a better night’s rest. Different scents and aromas really do trigger many types of feelings and emotions – it’s just about finding the right ones to suit your needs.
Here&Now Botanicals were nice enough to help me out with a few products to try out. With so many things on my mind I’ve been finding it difficult to focus on one thing at a time, so I thought I’d get some reinforcements. The Stay Focused Aromatherapy Mist has a very distinctive citrus scent with hints of floral that noticeably awakens the scenes. I like to spray this into the air right before I’m about to write, study, or anything that really needs full concentration.
All you ladies can relate when I say our periods can be an unpleasant time – both physically and emotionally! If I had a better clue of knowing aromatherapy can help ease things during this time I would have gotten it a lot sooner. She Aromatherapy Oil has a strong scent of peppermint and rose which can be very smoothing to smell especially during that time of month. The rollerball makes it easy to apply the oil to the temples, along the hairline, and even onto the abdomen when those cramps occurs. I love the modern packaging that it is conveniently small enough to fit anywhere and travel with.
To encourage my hoarding lip balm habits, Here&Now Botanicals also threw in an all natural Chai Latte Lip Balm. I appreciated this add-on since anything with the words “natural” and “chai latte” always makes me happy! I like having the very light spicy scent to my all-time favourite drink right on my lips. The best part is the super smooth and buttery formula that is infused with all types of nourishing ingredients such as one of my favourites, coconut oil.
