INTRODUCE BODY MISTS TO YOUR DAILY WELLNESS ROUTINE
One of the lesser known products as part of our 100% wellness alternatives are our versatile, easy to use and wonderful to experience body mists. Many times, our body mists are products that have been formulated as part of a full line of existing popular products (like Sleep Well, for example) to offer another product format to explore, or they’re blended as a standalone product to help you achieve a desired wellness goal.
Whichever body mist you choose, we love adding these soothing, refreshing and uplifting products into our daily routine as a way to experience the benefits of different essential oils through inhalation. All of our body mists are designed to be sprayed into the air, misted gently over the hair, face, and body with an added bonus of allowing you to take a few deep breaths and enjoy their aromatic properties as well. Let’s explore a couple of popular body mists below.
BODY MISTS FOR YOUR OVERALL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
There are many reasons someone might choose a body mist as part of their daily self care routine. Body mists can be used to refresh the hair and the skin, they can be used to support a physical ailment like pain or stress, or they can be used as an enjoyable, aromatic product that helps to give you a moment of wellness in your day. We’ve chosen three of our favorite body mists to showcase below, and all of the ways you might choose to use them:
Rose Mist: for those who love the sweet, subtle and floral aroma of rose petals, this personal mist is a real treat. Blended with only distilled water and pure rose otto essential oil, this mist is fantastic as a hair and face mist as part of your skin care routine, a mood lifter throughout the day and even as a fabric refresher when spritzed over clothes and bedding. Our favorite way to use Rose Mist? After cleansing our face and before applying moisturizer.
Refresh Mist: this is a Community-favorite mist during the hotter months of the year, as Refresh is blended with cooling and soothing essential oils like spearmint, eucalyptus and lemon. We like to spritz this mist generously over the skin on the body after spending time in the sun or after a vigorous workout. A hot tip? Store this mist in the fridge or chill over ice for an extra cool-down.
Stress Release Mist: this is the body mist we reach for when we’re feeling the physical and emotional manifestations of stress, whether it’s tensing of areas in the body like the shoulders and jawline or experiencing racing thoughts and nervous chatter. To help keep stress at bay, we like to mist generously into the air above the head and breathe deeply as the mist falls over the skin. Another tip would be to layer products together for extra effect; you can try rolling the Stress Release roll-on onto the forehead or across the shoulders, followed by misting the hair, face and body when you’re looking for rest and relaxation.
With any of our body mists, we recommend shaking the bottle vigorously to combine the essential oils and water before each use.
BODY MISTS AND OTHER WELLNESS PRODUCTS: ROLL-ONS
Other body care products we love are essential oil roll-ons, formulated for safe application directly to skin and portable for on-the-go wellness. Depending on the blend and your goals for using it, roll-ons can be applied to areas of the body like the temples, across the forehead, pulse points like the wrists, over the shoulders and onto the throat and chest. Here are two of our go-to essential oil roll-ons:
Peppermint Halo roll-on: our cooling, soothing and relieving superhero product, Peppermint Halo has been a staple in our collection since we first opened our doors in 1992. We love the combination of tingly peppermint, clearing eucalyptus and warming rosemary to help our head, neck and shoulders feel eased and in balance.
Unwind roll-on: for times when the body and mind are looking to feel soothed, balanced, peaceful and at ease, we recommend reaching for the gentle and tranquil notes of lavender, bergamot, orange and cinnamon that make the Unwind formula so uniquely comforting and familiar-feeling. Apply to the jawline, temples and pulse points to feel calmed throughout your day.
BODY MISTS AND OTHER WELLNESS PRODUCTS: BODY BUTTER
Another type of product we reach for as we transition toward the cooler months of the year in many parts of the world is the rich, deep hydration of body butter. Particularly after a bath or shower, restoring moisture to the body helps prevent signs of dry skin like itching or flaking, helping to keep you feeling awesome from head to toe. Two of the body butters we consistently reach for:
Yoga body butter: blended with the harmonizing, grounding notes of patchouli, neroli, cardamom and cedarwood, Yoga body butter is earthy, relaxing and restorative for the body and mind.
Muscle Melt body butter: blended with the nourishing, warming and stimulating notes of sweet birch, marjoram and rosemary, Muscle Melt body butter is decompressing, soothing and renewing for sore, overworked muscles.
All of our body butters use three deeply hydrating butters as part of the base; shea, cocoa seed and mango seed. Helping to lock moisture into the skin, these butters are creamy, rich and absorb easily, leaving the skin feeling soft, supple and glowing.
BODY MISTS AND OTHER WELLNESS PRODUCTS: DIFFUSERS & DIFFUSER BLENDS
Like a body mist but for the air in your home, diffusing is one of the simplest ways to impact the vibe in your space. Tailoring the scents you use to your unique preference, diffusers help to refresh the air in your environment, enhance your well-being through the creation of negative ions and support a home that smells of natural aromas, free of synthetic or artificial fragrance ingredients. Here’s our current favorite diffuser and blends:
Aroma Om Deluxe Stone diffuser: our largest and longest running diffuser, the Aroma Om Stone is made from chic, durable cement stone in slate grey, and offers a number of features like a two-tone optional LED light band and three timer settings. On continuous run, this unit can mist between 11-22 hours, depending on a high or low setting. Classic and timeless, the Stone fits seamlessly into any space.
Goddess diffuser blend: this blend of sweet citrus and precious florals is supportive, balancing and harmonizing for either day or nighttime use. Orange, rose, neroli and jasmine will fill your home with the scent of peaceful and comforting fruits and flowers.
Present Moment diffuser blend: one of our most unique blends, Present Moment marries zesty, uplifting citruses of grapefruit and orange with earthy, grounding notes of frankincense, sandalwood and vetiver for a scent experience that is truly meditative and balancing.
LIFESTYLE TIPS FOR INCORPORATING BODY MISTS INTO YOUR DAILY ROUTINE
If body mists aren’t yet part of your daily self care routine, here are our favorite ways to incorporate them as part of your healthy lifestyle:
- As a midday pick me up. Try misting your favorite scent overhead throughout the day to not only give you a physical refresh, but a mental one as well. Perk up before your afternoon meeting or wind down at the end of a long day with fresh, inviting scents.
- As part of your skin care routine. Try a gentle mist over the face as part of your skin care routine in the morning and at night. Because of the delicate skin and tissues on the face, we would avoid anything tingling that could be sensitizing like mint and would instead opt for gentle ingredients such as rose, lavender or chamomile.
- To set the tone for rest. As part of your wind down routine at bedtime, try spritzing your favorite relaxing body mist blend over your pillows, sheets and bedding to help create a welcome space for rest and relaxation.
Health is a state of body. Wellness is a state of being.
