I am a huge lover and user of essential oils
! I use them in cleaning as well as just to enjoy the fragrance. I even have some ingestible ones I use from time to time. The point is, I've used a variety of brands and fragrances. So I was super excited to see Avon added an essential oil set to their product line.
Just to be clear, I was not paid or compensated in any way for this review. I paid out of pocket for this item myself and love it enough to just share it with you! With that being said, I have to say, I absolutely love the new Avon Minding My Mood 4-in-1 Essential Oil Blends Set
We're introducing Avon Aromatherapy
with a set of fragrance oils that will improve the wellbeing of your mind, body and spirit. Discover our two essential oil blends, made with premium ingredients that will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. Each, 1.7 fl. oz.
Energize - Feel refreshed and focused with lively mandarin and stimulating ylang-ylang (an exotic floral derived from the tropical ylang-ylang tree).
Calm - Channel your tranquil inner bliss with comforting lavender and soothing star anise (a fragrant spice).
• Natural approach to self care
• Easy addition to your daily routine
4 WAYS TO USE:
1. Apply directly to pulse points, such as wrists, neck, temples, base of skull and bottom of feet.
2. Add a few drops to a warm bath.
3. Mix a few drops into body lotion.
4. Add to a room diffuser (10-20 drops or to your liking).
For me, personally, I chose to use both of these in the diffuser as well as in the bath. I love how the fragrance isn't super strong, but it isn't too soft - on either. Each has its own unique fragrance and its blend is one of its own, not a copy cat like I seem to find for various blends from various brands.
While I don't necessarily believe the Energize fragrance actually gives me energy, I do enjoy the fragrance and makes me feel like I started the day off right when I put it in the diffuser when I wake up. Sort of like a 'feel good' type of fragrance if you know what I mean. The same goes for the calm. I do find it relaxing, but not to the point of if I'm super stressed out it will take the stress away. Rather, a pleasant aroma to relax in a hot bath with or lay in bed trying to relax. I guess you get the idea. This may be different for you, but that's my personal experience. Scent-wise, I love them both, though!
For $24 you get the set. You get 2 bottles at 1.7 fl. oz, which puts these on the larger sized bottles realm in terms of essential oils. The bottom line is that these are definitely worth the investment to me and they can be used for a variety of purposes. Just do not ingest these. These are not made to be taken orally or digested.
