As I haven’t dabbled much into aromatherapy, though I’ve heard many great things about it, I was very excited to have the opportunity to try out some products from a lovely company based right here in Canada. Here & Now Botanicals specializes in aromatherapy products that will pamper you from head to toe. From skin and body care to mists and oils, each product is handcrafted in small batches out of Vancouver, BC.
The first product that I chose was the Sweet Sassafras Aromatherapy Mist ($15). It has a very light scent, kind of reminiscent of root beer actually, and is said to relieve tension, ease nerves and can also help with symptoms of depression. Recently I have been a bit stressed so I thought this would be the perfect product to try out. It comes in a gorgeous glass bottle (their packaging is amazing) and you just mist it onto your face, into your palms or onto your pillow. I have been using it as a pillow spray before bed and it has really helped to relax my mind before I turn in for the night. My fiance is in love with this as well as he has been working very late nights (sometimes he doesn’t arrive home until 4 am) and said that it really helped relieve any nervous tension and stress that he has been having. This has been a nightly staple for the both of us and as soon as this runs out I’m hopping online to grab another.
The next product is just as lovely as the last, and it is the Uplift Aromatherapy Oil ($15). This too comes in a lovely glass bottle with a rollerball applicator which you just rub on your temples and wrists and it gets to work right away. This product too will help to calm you with it’s beautiful citrus and neroli scent that I have fallen in love with. It can also aid in helping digestion, depression – the list goes on. I love to apply this on my wrists and it really helps to calm down any anxiousness that I am feeling. The packaging is even small enough that you could throw it in your bag and have it with you on the go. I have used up around a quarter of this oil already I enjoy it so much. It gets two thumbs up from the fiance as well.
I am really happy with these two products and can’t wait to explore what else the brand has to offer. I have my eye on the Dream aromatherapy oil as well as some of their other sprays. I am very thankful to have finally had a true aromatherapy experience, and you can check out the full lineup of products on the Here & Now Botanicals website. You won’t be disappointed!
