I love that essential oils are becoming more mainstream, but the side effect is that the quality in many of the easily accessible essential oils are not the greatest. I have a few places I love to get my roll-ons from but they don’t have the most glamorous packaging. Enter: Tazeka Aromatherapy. A chic, high-quality essential oil roll-on company that needs to be on your radar ASAP.
Tazeka’s oils are all either organic, ethically farmed, unsprayed and/or wild-crafted. Along with that they use no parabens, preservatives, or synthetics. One of my favorite aspects of their philosophy is that they do not use invasive methods for harvesting and distilling their oils because this protects Mother Nature. Obviously then, they do not believe in animal testing either.
“Everything is interconnected, and we’re committed to practices and products that honor the earth and the creatures who call it home.”
Such a holistically oriented company with such chic and gorgeous package was obviously on my radar. I was so excited to have the opportunity to try two roll-ons from Tazeka – the Nonstop Thoughts and the PMS Rescue.
I just had to read the first sentence on this blend and knew I needed in my life stat.
“Are you a perfectionist? A work-a-holic? A go getter that doesn’t know how to slow down?
Your brain doesn’t come with an “off” switch. But you can roll on Nonstop Thoughts to power down and get a little perspective.”
If I could install an “off” switch in my brain I definitely would. But since I cannot, this essential oil rolled on during some doodling or meditation is the next best thing. Especially with everything going on with the move and job searching this was a MUST for me. The scent is so calming and natural – not synthetic smelling at all. I love rolling it on and taking a deep breath right after I walk in the door from a long day at work.
What makes it so powerful for calming the brain? “Cardamom and myrrh essential oils support your intellect, clearing out stagnant energy and circuitous thoughts.”
I am not a pleasant PMSer – is anyone really? My boyfriend can attest that between the cramps, the cravings, the tears, and the road rage I should definitely be locked in a room and not come out for those three days. I love that this oil is supposed to not only balance your hormones but also address the physical symptoms of that time of the month. Bloating? Um, yes please. Tension? Haha – no answer needed here.
Again, this scent is so soothing and so pleasant. I feel a calmness wave over me as I use it, and while I’ve only had the opportunity to use it during one month’s days of horror, it is going to become a period staple just like my Raspberry Leaf Tea.
The Tazeka description of this oil does it more justice than I could:
“Way back in Ancient Rome, people noticed that cypress reduced bloating, tension, and excessive bleeding. Today, we know that cypress essential oil has astringent and diuretic properties, which explains why it’s been a common menstrual therapy for centuries. Geranium helps balance hormones and underlines the astringent, soothing qualities of cypress.
PMS Rescue’s floral, slightly spicy scent is comforting and encouraging. The blend has an almost magical ability to nourish Yin energy—that creative, receptive, feminine part of you that asks for special attention during your cycle.
Feel good in your body—period.”
