Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t yesterday’s time change supposed to give us an extra hour of sleep? I’m so tired today it’s all I can do to stay vertical. Maybe I’m just worn down. Jamesy was laid up all week and we were beside ourselves with worry ’til we finally got a diagnosis at the hospital Friday night (he’s got a fairly common autoimmune disease called Henoch–Schönlein purpura that should work itself out in a month). James was feeling better today and went to school, but this mama is fried. I’ve spent most of the day on the couch with my tea and my essential oils, watching funny cat videos on YouTube.
Saje Natural Wellness sent me some of their popular blends to try at the end of last week and really, the timing couldn’t have been better. I’ve been using the stress release rollerball for the past three days and feel like it’s helped take my anxiety down a few notches. Plus it just smells really good (a combination of lavender, orange, chamomile and vetiver essential oils). I roll it on my wrists, but you can also put it under your chin, on the soles of your feet, across your forehead and behind your ears.
Stress release is one of five blends in the pocket pharmacy kit, which also includes peppermint halo (a headache remedy), pain release (an analgesic remedy), immune (a germ and virus fighting remedy) and eater’s digest (a digestion easing remedy). They’re all rollerballs for easy application on the go. It’s also available individually in larger sizes and diffuser blends.
All Saje products are 100% natural and not tested on animals, which I can totally get behind. The Vancouver, BC company just announced plans to open its first US stores by the end of the year, with 25 more to follow by the end of 2017. (US residents can already shop the store online.)
In addition to essential oils and diffusers, Saje carries soy candles, teas and a full range of face and body products. (I’m not-so-secretly hoping to find the aromaom ultrasonic diffuser and geo soap on a rope under the Christmas tree.)
Saje also sent a jet lag and travel mist called arrive revived that you spray in the air above your head and inhale to perk you up when you’re drowsy. Yeah I’m going to need a bigger bottle LOL. I’ve been using the stress release more than anything else, but the arrive revived smells wonderful with its notes of eucalyptus, lemon and lavender.
I find people either swear by essential oils or don’t know the first thing about them. Which camp are you in? How do you use essential oils? Any Saje faves?
Saje Natural Wellness sent me some products to try free of charge, however all opinions are my own.
