Trying to Keep Calm + Enjoy Life {{+ a giveaway}}

This is such a crazy time of year.  So much happens and it all happens so fast that I tend to not take time to relax and enjoy it all.  

I try to keep my life clean and organized in all aspects - work, home, car, blog, bills - but I really need to work on my body and how I let things affect me. 

Don't be alarmed if you see me sniffing myself.  

Yea, sounds weird doesn't it?  Let me explain...

I've recently begun turning to aromatherapy to help me relax. I actually have a few different oils from Tazeka Aromatherapy.  I chose Tazeka because each of their blends has 100% organic, unsprayed, and pure essential oils as well as pure organic jojoba wax and natural tocopherols.  And if you have no darn clue what a tocopherol is - it's vitamins.  Vitamin E! Vitamin E is awesome because it helps preserve skin!  Hello youthful glow.

Each Tazeka blend has it's own set of instructions which is really cool.  Applying them is super easy because they come in roller ball applicators.  So I just put them on my pulse points, wrist, neck, temple, chest, inner elbows, and sometimes even the back of my knees. 

It's so easy for me to use my roll-on's while I'm on the go so no matter where I am when I get stressed, I can remember to calm down and focus on what I want. 

Whenever I'm in a mood and I've started out my day on the wrong foot I make sure I'm wearing my Optimism blend. This is a very uplifting blend full of fresh clary sage!  Sage has been known for helping people see more clearly both physically and figuratively speaking. It's great for the eyes and it inspires feelings of euphoria esepcially with regular use.  I love the hint of orange in this blend too. Orange and sage work together to restore depleted Chi and stir up stagnant energy.  The yummy citrus notes bring a feeling of calm and serenity to me. 

Whenever I'm slipping up and not taking care of myself like I should I make sure I'm wearing the Slim Solution blend.  Grapefruit and Cedarwood essential oils help decongest stuck energy and they break things down with detoxification and diuretic actions. This encourages the body to release excess fluids and the clarifying oils in this solution are great for skin issues.   This empowers me everytime I get a whiff of it!

Whenever I'm feeling nervous, tense, or a little stuffed up I make sure I'm wearing my Breathe Easy oil.  This essential oil blend contains eucalyptus which is a tree that has strong decongesting powers and is currently being researched for being anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-mucus, and pro-powerful-blood-cells! There's also some floral notes like Lavendar which also helps reduce inflammation and promote relaxation.  It's great for cold season since it helps clear away congestion and stagnant energy.   It's a very uplifting blend.

They also have smaller blends which are nice for discreetly keeping with you on the go. I am a huge fan of Headache Helper which I got in the 2ml bottle. It has great floral notes and it helps to relieve pain, ease inflammation, and reduce muscle spasms.  It works great when I'm starting to feel tense like I'm going to get a headache from something in the office or right before bed. It really helps relieve the pressure and lets me relax! 

I love these because I can reapply them as often as I want and I know that I'm applying a product with high quality ingredients to my body.  All of the ingredients are ethically-farmed and harvested; sourced from farmers and distillers that Tazeka trusts.  The last thing they want is synthetic additives coming between their customers and the power of the plants in their products.

So see I'm not crazy - I'm just smart and I'm trying to just relax and enjoy the world around me.

One of my readers is going to get to do the same thing because Tazeka is giving away the same 3 blends I received!

  1. These sound awesome! I love that they come in a roller ball applicator. That is really nice. So, my question, do you use perfume or do you just have this as your "scent" for the day?

    1. I use these as my scent for the day on some days. But other days I will also add a spritz of perfume halfway through the day. :)

  2. Sooo excited to have won! I can't wait to gift these to my Mom & sister! Thank you, thank you! :)
