as August hits its stride, it brings with it that “back to school” energy, ushering in all the feelings.
there’s the structural snap that comes with any new beginning….
there’s a familiar relief that more predictable routines deliver…
there’s an anticipation that cooler temps are (hopefully) in the forecast …
and an awareness the holiday season is around the corner waiting to take the stage.
and nestled in between all that, there’s also the adjustment to the many changes happening (seemingly) all at once.
this is why I LOVE working with natural scent as a gentle guide for shifting the chi and enticing our cooperation with all the change in the air.
so, if you have a house of ambivalence right now (back to school jitters, kiddos away at college, the ramping up of year end goals / expectations), let me share the perfect fall RX: Sandoval’s Wood Interior Aromatic Mist.
this mist blends the chi of earthy vetiver, cedarwood bonfires, ancient sandalwood, rich cardamom, and bittersweet marjoram essential oils.
one of my favorite authors, Robin Wall Kimmerer (Braiding Sweetgrass) said, “in some Native languages the term for plants translates to ‘those who take care of us.’”
and that’s precisely why Wood Interior Aromatic Mist is made for this time of year. by starting +/or ending the day with a quick spritz around your home, you’re planting the support needed now and in the coming months.
take a quick glimpse and you’ll agree:
Vetiver Essential Oil is persuasively grounding, reassuring, and a great antidote to restlessness.
Cedarwood Essential Oil serves up antiseptic properties (yes, please!) and purges “low-grade” energy that tends to come home with us the busier we get.
Sandalwood Essential Oil has a long-standing reputation for calming our mental chatter and encouraging focus – which is a great ingredient to have in the air when we need a moment (or many!) of peace.
Cardamom Essential Oil reduces stress and fights fatigue, which is a friend to have on hand when accelerating out of the ease of summer into the potential fall frenzy.
Marjoram is often noted as the herb of happiness, so it’s no surprise this essential oil soothes tension and helps us manage that fight-or-flight response that is so easily triggered in new or stressful situations.
ALL of that is here in one bottle and made from fair trade, sustainably and ethically sourced essential oils that are free from synthetics, additives, or synthetic binders.
and to top all that off, each bottle holds obsidian, carnelian, and tiger’s eye energy stones!
here at chez Simple Shui, my favorite way to “dispense” this mist is to stand in the center of our house, give it a hearty spritz, and then waft the mist with my hand in the direction of each gua (or life area). I also love employing it when our home needs a good energetic zhuzh. starting at the front door, I give every room (or gua) three spritzes.
Michael (the creative force of Sandoval) loves to unleash this natural aromatic mist’s magnificence a few ways. he mists fresh sheets and towels coming out of the dryer. he gives the sofa a quick spritz-over to refresh the space. and my favorite, he mists the air above him and walks right through it.
here’s what I know for sure: however you decide to invite this bounty of a blend into your home, your bottle won’t last long because it’ll only take a few mists to realize what refreshing company it is!
