If you haven’t already heard of the term aromatherapy — the practice of using essential oils and other aromatic mediums to improve your psychological and physical well-being — then consider this your entryway into a whole new world of possibilities. In this edition of our Beauty Fix Series, a one-stop destination that will provide you with go-to solutions for all things beauty, we present the companies worth shopping for better relaxation, allergy relief, and more.
The Aromatherapy Edition
Aromatic Mood Setting: When it comes to setting the vibe in your space, candles are one of the best ways to set the mood. For a playful and uplifting scent that also provides a little eye candy, you’ll love this Beach Daisy Botanical Candle ($88). For the gal on the go, the Rosy Rings Roman Lavender Travel Tin ($10) can set a chill tone anywhere you need to bring on the serenity. If you’re looking for more of an earthy aroma, then Context White Triana ($40) has a sandalwood base with hints of vanilla and patchouli that will deliver a clean grounding experience.
Instant Medicine Woman: Consider Young Living Essential Oil your one-stop shop for purifying blends that detoxify your life and inspire positivity. Become a member to score points so you can keep your collection growing.
Next Level Soak: Sometimes a luxurious bath filled with intoxicating scented therapeutic salts is all you need. Get your soak on and treat yourself to one or all of their several blends. My go-to is the West Lab Super Salt Epsom Muscle Relief With Arnica, Spearmint + Eucalyptus ($11).
Allergy Relief: For relief from pesky allergies or warm-weather colds, opt for products that offer immediate comfort that we all crave when under the weather. If you’re looking for a stronger aromatic experience, then Camille Beckman Cough + Cold Balm ($11) is an all-natural vegan formula that will soothe thanks to lemon and eucalyptus essential oils. For a slightly mild but still effective aroma, go for Zoe Organics Breathe Balm ($14), which features a natural essential oil blend of tea tree, lavender, and cedar that work together to aid in your healing needs.
Feel Good, Do Good: The company launched its Positive Change Project, which uses proceeds from every purchase to go toward their six chosen programs that support women bettering their lives. What better way to give back to communities across the world than with this lovely scent? Get started with the Aura Cacia Essential Oil Discovery Kit ($25) and feel good as you do good!
Oh, Baby: Honest Co has baby safe (and you’ll love it to) bubble baths and shampoo/body washes that will calm, cleanse, and shower your wee one with so much soothing love. Reach for scents like Honest Bubble Bath Perfectly Gentle Sweet Orange Vanilla ($11) and Honest Bubble Bath Ultra Calming Dreamy Lavender ($12).
On-the-Go Therapy: The Scentered Ultimate Survival Kit ($80) has lived up to its name on all fronts and is my go-to bag essential for a good reason. Each balm is packed with custom blended essential oils to tackle issues that plague your everyday life — love, escape, stress-less, sleep-well, and focus. Simply roll on your wrists, temples, and bottom of your feet for your experience of choice.
Decadent Diffuser: If you just want to dabble in the essential oil realm, then this Rosy Rings Orange Blossom + Honey Petite Reed Diffuser ($22) is a great way to go-there without too much effort. It’s not only beautiful to look at; its enchanting fragrance will last for three to six months!
