This Sleek Light Is the Ultimate Device in Self-Care
Whether your stress is caused by work, politics, or family drama, a little self-care can significantly reduce tension and anxiety. Who knew that simply doing things you enjoy could be such a huge help when it comes to improving your mental state? Whether that means hitting the gym more often, making meditation a habit, or just curling up on the couch to watch some Netflix when you need to decompress is totally up to you. That’s the great thing about self-care. It can mean whatever you need it to in any given moment. That’s probably why the concept has totally taken off, resulting in books, apps, and gadgets focused specifically on putting yourself first, even if it’s just for a few minutes a day.
The latest item to pop up in this sphere of welcome innovations? A device that’s 100 percent devoted to self-care. Yes, really. Meet Zoè, an aroma-diffusing light, which recently launched on Indiegogo. This one little device works as an essential oil diffuser, a meditation light, and a humidifier. Pretty cool, right? The idea behind the product, the newest in a series of very successful aroma diffusers (top-selling on Amazon) from Pilgrim, was to create something that would help people make their home their own personal oasis, according to Louis Verspreeuwen, the co-founder of the company. Theoretically, it can make your wake-up, morning routine, and nighttime chill session *way* more relaxing through optimized scent, light, and air quality.
Considering that aromatherapy has been shown to help reduce anxiety and increase sleep quality, it seems like a pretty good idea to get one of these, especially if you’re looking for a fun way to treat yourself. The light settings are also really nifty. The device can function as a brighter bedside lamp or a dimmer light for meditation (or just end-of-day winding down). Plus, you can control all the functions via a remote, meaning you don’t even have to get up to switch it on and off. Talk about chill, amirite?
Another awesome perk is the design. Super sleek and modern, this item won’t look out of place on your bedside table or anywhere else in your home. In fact, it might even elevate what you’ve got going on, especially if you’re cultivating a minimalist decor scheme. Choose between plain white or the striped model above — both come on a pretty wooden base. The first ones are expected to deliver in June. Right now, you can get in on an early-bird deal, and shell out just $69 instead of the standard $150. Three essential oils are included with the device, so once it arrives you’ll be set for the ultimate day of relaxation.
