Adding Moments of Wellness into Your Eco Oasis

with Banyan Tree

My apartment never feels like home without some sort of aromatherapy. I love being able to breath in and enjoy the scents of my favorite essential oils. With so much craziness going on when we open our phones {& having a job that requires you to be on the phone all the time}, it's nice to just sit back, unplug and take in relaxing oil blends. After all, aromatherapy is the balance & harmony of body and mind. I always speak about how important it is to give yourself a break, and really think about your wellness {I do this a lot in order to get myself into the habit!}. Spa-remedy lines, like Banyan Tree, are perfect for your recharge moments in the day. 

Why I Love Banyan Tree

The Scents: Coined as 'A Sanctuary of the Senses', it's truly an experience taking in their botanical blends. What's been so enjoyable, for me, is being able to blend essential oils to create my very own scent. Having control over what you smell makes the experience more enjoyable, and inspires you to take more time out for yourself to focus on your well-being.

The Traditions: To think of the people and the culture behind each scent gives you a better connection to the product & its benefits {not only for you, but the trade communities, too}. Banyan Tree creates economic opportunity for many artisan communities around the globe. In their Pride of Craft book, you can learn more about the makers behind these wonderful products.

The Commitment to the Planet & our Health: Besides sourcing all of their materials responsibly, each product is free of parabens and cruelty-free. 

The Experiential Essential Oil Sets: This is where you get to really play around to find your favorite scent. Personally, I love combining lavender and bergamot in my bedroom when relaxing at the end of the day, and then orange, grapefruit and rosemary in my living room for a super fruity scent to keep my senses going during the day.  Sometimes a stone full of lavender beside my bed is exactly what I need for a good night's rest! Each kit comes with suggested blends, but if you are more keen to a certain oil, just go heavier on that one!
