Enjoying unscented bath products to fit my sensitive smell needs with Aromafloria

I am highly sensitive to scent! Because of this, I am particular about bath products I use.  Fake over scented products make me sick!  I previously reviewed Aromafloria’s Muscle Soak. I love their products!  The bath products were subtle and soothed my muscles.

I keep the inhalation beads in my purse and recommend them for times when the environment is filled with trigger smells.  The inhalation beads are a quick smell for relief.

Recently I have become more interested in essential oils and mixing my own products.  Some days I enjoy a scent, other days I benefit from another oil and some days I want NO SMELL.  When I received unscented products from their mixology line I used them in a variety of ways. Simply,

  1. “Select your preferred base product.
  2. Add your preferred essential-oil blend.
  3. Mix, smell and enjoy.”

The unscented line provides so many options for so many needs.  I keep the bath & shower oil in my shower. It deeply penetrates and hydrates before I step out of the shower.   I love the salt scrub with oils to provide a spa like feeling.  The massage oil works great for my aching muscles and is perfect mixed with relaxing and healing oils.  The body butter is luscious and smooth.  I use it completely unscented and love the hydration it provides without smelly trigger perfumes.

The ability to alter these products with oils and to use scentless is such a luxury! If you or a loved one is sensitive to smell, I highly recommend these products!

Here’s the exciting news…..

Aromafloria is giving away an amazing prize pack just for My Migraine Life followers!

How Disney World switched to Original Sprout products that reduced Migraine triggers and headaches

original sprout

*This post contains affiliate links. My referrals are my own opinion. I only recommend things I truly love and use for myself and family. I was given products as a review. See disclaimer for more

Recently, I went to Disney World with my family.  I love Disney World!  My family, the adventures, the magic and the fun.  It all was a dream come true.

After my last experience at the boutique that turns my daughter into a princess, I feared the hair spray smell. The last time we went, the lights were really bright.  Beyond the lights was the smell.  Oooooooooh the smell.  I had started my day with a migraine. Standing in air that was saturated with strong hair spray made me really sick!

This time, I was prepared.  I had my Axon Optics in my purse and wore a scarf that I sprayed with my favorite essential oil to cover my nose.  As we were called back and I entered the room, I was confused.  Where was the smell?

As we settled in, I asked our fair Godmother what was different. The air was breathable without trigger and I felt much more relaxed.  The answer was Original Sprout.  She then explained to me how their last hair spray was so stiff that it was giving little girls headaches.  My ears perked up when she said the word “headache” because I live to prevent headaches in my family.

Disney World switched to Original Sprout products to give the little girls a more natural and less stiff hairstyle.  I was so impressed with their response to give families a “soft, strong, healthy hold” that provides thicker luscious locks all day & night. The Natural Finishing Mist is “for all hair types & textures with organic extracts & plant proteins to help strengthen & smooth.”  The soothing organic extracts made a huge difference as a migraine trigger and breathable air.

The experience was so much more enjoyable with using Original Sprout products.  Thank you to Disney World for making the responsible switch to Original Sprout and thank you to Original Sprout for the products to try after falling in love with your line.

EnviroKlenz review, products for chemical sensitivity and allergies

As a follow-up to Migraine and Allergies I have changed a few things in my house to lessen our allergens.

·         For the summer, we will keep the windows closed and use the air conditioning

·         We take our shoes off when entering the house and wash hands immediately

·         When coming in from playing outside, my son showers and changes his clothes before bed and nap

·         All beds are covered with allergen pillow cases and bed sheets

·         We installed a new HVAC air cartridge

I was given the HVAC air cartridge as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.

 

EnviroKlenz Natural Cleaning Products

The first thing that struck me about EnviroKlenz, was the variety of products I can use in my home.  They are geared for chemically sensitive like myself, along with those with allergies and suffer from respiratory problems like my son.  I have a lot of problems with many cleaning agents that trigger my migraines through smell and harsh chemicals and generally look for natural cleaners and eco-friendly cleaning products. I don’t like my children and dog smelling fumes so EnviroKlenz sounded like what I need for my house.

Being very sensitive to odor, a mom and pet owner I was interested in their odor neutralizer and eliminator.  The neutralizer is a green cleaning product that can be used for cleaning and removing vomit odor, spills and odors from carpets and solid surfaces, liquid spills in cars, pet mess, pet urine and more. 

I was also drawn in by the laundry enhancers. EnviroKlenz works along with normal detergent to enhance its ability to remove tough odors but contains no masking agents or fragrances.

The product I chose to review was the HVAC air cartridge. I was most excited about how the air cartridge removes VOCs and odors from my home. 

What are VOCs?

“Volatile organic chemicals (VOC) encompass a wide range of compounds. These chemicals range from slightly hazardous organic solvents up to highly toxic and corrosive acids. They can be found in most industrial and household settings, and can pose a serious hazard for a prolonged period of time in an indoor environment. In addition to organic compounds, there are also a wide range of additional toxic volatile compounds which are commonly found in the home.”

EnviroKlenz HVAC filter destroys noxious chemicals and odors.  It is a non toxic air cleaning product.  Their HVAC filter neutralizes odors and VOCs preventing them from returning into indoor air space.  Their products are made from metal oxides which are considered safe compounds found in safe consumer and food products.

I feel at ease knowing my HVAC air cartridge is providing me with clean air.  At home, I want my children to be their safest and healthiest being I control their environment and what’s in it.  With EnviroKlenz I have taken one step closer to doing so.

I recommend EnviroKlenz for anyone looking for odor elimination products, air purifier for allergies and eco-friendly home products. 

 What do you do to lessen the allergens in you home?

Organic Aromas oil and diffuser review

Affiliate disclosure: Some of the links on this blog are affiliate links.  This means if you click on the link and purchase I will receive affiliate commission.

Everyone seems to be talking about essential oils and what they can do for you.  I have been looking into them for a while and am so lucky to have the opportunity to try Organic Aromas Designer Series Essential Oil Blends Luxury Gift Set and Raindrop – Essential Oil Diffuser for Aromatherapy. 

After speaking with the makers of Organic Aromas, it was clear to me that safety while using essential oils is important to them.  Buying from a distributer like Organic Aromas or other reputable companies is important and risks may increase if you are using cheaper brands.  The oils are intended for inhalation reasons which has low risk of safety concerns.  As always, I keep all products away from my children and dog. 

The bottles are stored in a sturdy classy looking case.  The variety offers different relief for my different feelings and sensitivities.  I am super sensitive to smells during a migraine attack and often can’t stand smelling anything.  When I have a headache or low grade migraine, I find certain essential oils to be relaxing and therapeutic.  Depending on how I’m feeling and what I’m doing depends on my preference of smell.  That’s why the Luxury Gift Set is so wonderful!  Variety is the spice of life and I have a variety of needs to go with my variety of oils.

After trying them, I have been able to split them up into how I like to incorporate them throughout my day.  Everyone’s preferences to smells are very different.  You will need to do a trial for yourself and find what works for you.  This is how I generally use them….

Morning:

Energy-Any extra boost in getting some energy in the morning is always helpful. 

Passion-I like to start my day with passion, drive and the smell of motivation to start my day or feel better.

Afternoon:

Purity-This scent is nice during the day because it smells clean.  There’s something about my house smelling clean that makes me feel better

Burglars- This is a homey smell that smells of spices.  I used to like cinnamon candles but found that many of them made me sick.  Diffusing burglars is a better alternative to my love of Fall smells.

Bedtime:

Serenity- What better time to be serene than when you are sleeping?  I start my day passionate and energetic and fall asleep serene. (Well that’s the hope, right?)

Signature blend-My favorite!  I love this smell; it is my go to oil.  The signature blend was included in the diffuser which was a perfect scent to start my adventures with Organic Aromas oils.

The raindrop diffuser is a pretty and light weight wood base with glass raindrop top.  The product arrived in a protective box with padding and velvet case for the pieces.  A detailed information and instruction manual was provided including cleaning instructions. 

The diffuser does not use water or heat.  It nebulizes the oils allowing the diffuser to disperse oil with its full smell and therapeutic properties.  For more information on how the diffuser works, go here….  Although there is no water vapor being pushed out, I was surprised at how much the raindrop diffuser was pushing out the oil and smell.  No mess with less chance of spillage.

An aspect of the diffuser that I like is the ability to turn it low to high.  Generally,  noise is a trigger and escalates my migraine.  If it is turned up all the way, the diffuser makes noise and turns off automatically turning back on when needed.  The nice thing about the diffuser is that  I can alter the amount of smell and noise that is being dispersed.  It is quiet, overall, but when my sensitivities are high, it’s nice to have options. 

A concern I had with the diffuser was the constant light.  Although it is beautiful, I am highly sensitive to light especially with a migraine.  The great news is, I find it to be soothing and NOT triggering.  It is subtle and pretty and not bright enough to bother me in my bedroom where I like it dark.  It’s  pretty in the kitchen or other areas of the house.

I use Organic Aromas diffuser and oils  daily.  I  find it to be  versatile and pleasant. I love using it at night next to my bed and other places in my house.  Sometimes I need to slow down, take a deep breathe, and breathe and Organic Aromas is a perfect fit.

Organic Aromas is doing a GIVEAWAY, enter today to get oils and purchase the diffuser to breathe the luxury!

Aromafloria, helping me relax with essential oil bath products

IMG_7300 (1)

I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. This post contains affiliate links

Aromafloria delivers finely crafted, artisanal quality body care and aromatherapy products.  I was approached by Aromafloria to review their Muscle Soak collection.  This collection restores vitality with essential oils of eucalyptus, peppermint, and lemongrass. These nourishing formulas soothe sore muscles, ease tension and leave you feeling energized.  Knowing that I like eucalyptus and peppermint already, I knew this was the line for me.

This summer I have decided to cut down on my workouts and focus more on relaxation and taking care of my skin.  These products allowed me to do so.  Here is a breakdown of all the products I tried:

Aromafloria

Muscle Soak- Ocean Mineral Bath Salts

Restore a sense of well-being to ease sore muscles with an aromatic steaming bath infused with healing essential oils and muscle relaxing sea salts.

The bath salts were a real treat to me.  I never take the time to take a bath and reviewing these forced me to relax.  I found that that the salts dissolved easily and had a light pleasant aroma.  I have used over powering products in the bath before and this one is subtle and not too strong to soak in for a lengthy bath.

Muscle Soak- Foaming Bubble Bath

The Muscle Soak Bubble Bath’s essential oils of Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Lemongrass are fresh, cooling and invigorating.

My children helped me review the bubble bath.  They love bubble bath and were thrilled with  the lush foamy and pleasant smell.  I felt good about allowing them to use the eucalyptus bubble bath when my son has sensitive skin and sinus issues.  His skin was soothed and breathing was clear after soaking and playing in the bubble bath.

Muscle Soak- Sugar Salt Glow Body Scrub

Cleanse away fatigue and invigorate the body and soul with refreshing cool herbs and aromas to leave your skin softly polished and younger feeling.

This was my favorite!  I love scrubs and this one was great!  Once again, it was a lovely light aroma.  I enjoyed the fine scrub and how it was not messy.  It stuck to my skin and allowed me to exfoliate without splashing it all over the shower or it chunking up and falling to the drain.  It left my skin smooth and slightly moisturized and not dry.  It is so gentle I used it daily and concentrated on areas of bumps or imperfections on my skin.  The only problem is how quickly I have been using it!

Muscle Soak- Bath & Body Massage Oil

Relieve tired muscles from aches and pains with an icy hot massage with Muscle Soak Bath & Body Massage Oil.

This one I used on my husband.  He is at a desk job all day and gets a lot of back and shoulder pain.  I treated him with the body oil and a massage and he now requests it often.

Sinus Help- Inhalation Beads

The decongestant and cooling properties of essential oils have been shown to help clear stuffy nose and enhance breathing.

These came very in handy!  After receiving all of the Aromafloria products, I went into a migraine cycle followed by a sinus infection and pink eye.  The pressure in my face was extreme.  I helped treat myself with baths (and salts) along with breathing the inhalation beads.  The sinus beads are pretty strong.  The first time I breathed deeply with them my eyes watered from the essential oils.  I brought the beads with me when we were outside to help clear my sinuses and allow me have some relief as the allergies grew.

Sleep Ease- Inhalation Beads

The restorative properties of essential oils have been known to help quiet the mind and calm the body for healthy, natural sleep.

These beads are not as strong as the sinus beads.  They are pleasant and relaxing.  I plan on adding these to my travel bag.  The smells of airplanes and the people surrounding me often trigger migraines.  I also will use them before bed in the dry air conditioned hotel.  They are relaxing and help calm my migraine brain before bed.

Overall, I loved trying all of the Aromafloria products.  Being under the weather and pampering myself with these soothing products allowed me to feel more energized and vibrant.  As a busy mom, quality bath products are like an escape to the spa in the comforts of my home.
