While the title may be a touch dramatic... it is true that I do love my little Solid Perfumes and always have one either on me or within arms reach. Each little tube packs a powerful punch of antioxidants, vitamins, and mood boosters for a little pick me up throughout the day.
Let's start with the base used in Sweet Anthem's Solid Perfumes, a proprietary blend that includes organic shea butter. Shea butter is naturally rich in Vitamins A and E as well as essential fatty acids full of skin-replenishing helpers. A little dab on brittle knuckles, cracked cuticles, or on the back of my dry hands and it's a buttery soft reprieve from the harshness of the weather.
Add a few drops of essential oils to our shea butter base blend and good things really start to happen! There is a reason that essential oils and aromatherapy have long been used, studied, and integrated into overall wellness practices. The benefits of taking a few minutes out of your day to literally stop and smell the roses encourages a sense of harmony, overall happiness, and well-being.
Taking a minute out of your busy day to add a little dab of fragrance is an easy and quick way to nurture yourself amidst all of the chaos. Here are a few of my choices for taking a "breather" during the day:
|Solid Perfume||Essential Oil||Benefits|
|+ Alice||Tuberose||Tuberose is known to stimulate and improve blood circulation. Great for when you feel stuck and need to get those ideas flowing.|
|+ Cybele||Saffron||Saffron is considered one of the most nutrient dense essential oils and is often used as a mood booster. Studies are confirming that just 20 minutes of drawing in saffron has the ability to lower cortisol levels (your stress hormone). Another great tool to keep in your pocket to contend with the stressers we face every day.|
|+ Juliet||Clove Bud||Clove bud is a favorite warming and stimulating essential oil among aromatherapy practitioners. Benefits include stimulating your metabolism by improving your blood circulation and lowering your body temperature. Great to help counteract those post-lunch afternoon slumps.|
|+ Annabelle & Lucille||Jasmine||
Jasmine has been identified as a particularly soothing essential oil and can help induce sedative hormones to counter anxiety and promote relaxation. Along with getting some help unwinding with jasmine, the sweet aroma is also known to increase libido by inducing faster breathing rates increasing the saturation of oxygen in the blood.
Breath deep and smell good!
