Inside Information: Balance Blend
Inside Information: Everyone™ Balance Blend
Take a walk around our offices and you’re likely to find aromatherapy diffusers at nearly every desk. Lately, we’ve been diffusing Balance like crazy – it’s perfect for times of transition (like this sweet spot between summer and fall) or when you’re having feelings of uncertainty (because who doesn’t feel that mid-week?). Read on to find out why it’s our latest obsession.
Here’s a refresher on how aromatherapy works: Besides smelling fantastic, essential oils can have an actual effect on our moods. You see, our sense of smell is directly connected to our nervous system. That means the things we smell (good and bad) can have an impact on the way we feel.
When you open up that happy little bottle Balance and take a whiff, you’re vibing on 100% pure essential oils of Geranium, Orange, Peppermint, and Lavender. Here’s a little more on those:
Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens): steam distilled + sourced from Egypt
Orange (Citrus sinensis): cold pressed + sourced from Italy
Peppermint (Mentha piperita): steam distilled + sourced from USA
Lavender (Lavandula officinalis): steam distilled + sourced from France
All four of these oils are really killin’ it in the popularity department. While wonderful on their own, a blend of all four is really something special. Balance is a bright, refreshing scent that can inspire a fresh start at any point in your day. Crisp, minty, and floral, this aromatherapeutic blend lends its beautiful scent nicely to a DIY room spray or morning massage oil.
Some suggested essential oil hacks for this blend: Add a few drops to some body lotion for a unique, natural fragrance. Add a few drops to your bath water and soak in the feel-good. Traveling? Pack a bottle in your carry on and bring it out for a little mid flight pick-me-up. Had one of those days? Drop some Balance on a cool wash cloth and drape it over your forehead as you kick back.
Our co-founder Susan’s favorite essential oil hack? Adding a few drops to her shower floor in the morning. The heat and steam release the oils and instantly turn your shower into an aromatherapy spa.
Take a deep breath. Doesn’t that feel better? Things are on their way back into balance. Love, everyone.
