An Uplifting Scent


Unless you're lucky enough to live in Arizona, then you're not exempt from "falling back" this time of year. When the day closes in on me at 5pm I start to get S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder) for reals. It's depressing. To give myself a little pick-me-up, I like to utilize aromatherapy. I heard that orange scents are uplifting, so I tried Pep Talk by Aura Cacia (I think I got mine at Whole Foods) -- a sweet orange and peppermint blend. You can take a whiff directly from the bottle or combine 18 drops with one ounce water in a spray mister. Try it and lemme know if you experience a bit of a boost.

Haha, I got tropical scents -- big shocker! I'm actually dying to try the ones recommended though, a trip to the mall might be in order this weekend.

Hey Sarah! Good call on the citrusy shampoo and conditioner -- I'll have to try that. In fact, when I was getting a facial at the Organic Pharmacy one time in Beverly Hills, my gal told me that washing your hair more often can help ward off depression (that's a toughie for me to follow through with since I'm not a fan of washing my hair too frequently and partake in a dirty hair challenge with myself every week). Oh, and since I created this quiz Which Perfume Should You Gift?, I think I can guess which fragrance it would point you to. Lemme know what your results are after you take it so that I can see if I was right or not ...

I haven't tried that specific product, but for awhile I was using shampoo and conditioner with a citrusy-orange scent and I loved it, it really woke me up in the mornings. I also like Clinique Happy for that reason, I don't really wear it but I love to catch a whiff now and then, orange scent is a definite cheerer-upper. I also love anything coconut scented, reminds me of suntan lotion and being on the beach.
