Get ready for flu season with Dropwise Essentials

Dropwise is one of my favorite companies out there- I think I own one of everything! I was first introduced by The All Natural Beauty Mall, possibly the best one stop shopping for natural skincare and beauty.

Breathe Ease and Sleep Ease are wonderful blends to help you now that flu season is about to strike. Essential oil aromatherapy is great for when you want to avoid all of the unpronounceable, scary chemicals that we tend to sniff, snort, or otherwise breath in in the name of getting some rest or clearing that stuffy nose. These oil blends are multipurpose- you can use them in a diffuser, breathe them in from a cloth, add them to hot water to create a refreshing facial steam, even make your own soothing bath salts!

I'm also insane in love with the mist sprays- these are the absolute easiest, most convenient aromatherapy method out there. They're packaged in really sturdy (reusable, recyclable) aluminum spray cans.

With spearmint, peppermint, lime, and patchouli essential oils, not only does it clear out musty tent smell, but after getting all in a sweaty lather setting up art installations and the like, it cools you down and brings you back to life like a shower in a bottle! It's also great for perking you up during that afternoon lag and giving you the pickup you need to get through those last few hours. I use the Dropwise mists like an organic Febreeze :-)
