After a cluster of debilitating migraines last month, I decided to try diffusing essential oils when I first wake up, and before bed. Not only did my home smell great, but it was helping! Whenever I take over the counter medications for my migraines, they just rebound the next day, creating a vicious cycle. I have tried a few prescription medications for migraines but I was allergic, so I have been leery of trying other kinds. Meditation and yoga help but sometimes I just wake up in the middle of the night with a migraine, or it just hits me when I am in an otherwise good mood. Besides the migraines, I also have anxiety issues, so I am always looking for easy ways to calm myself when I feel my mind spiraling out of control.
When I was given the opportunity to try Pure Aromatherapy Essential Oil Roll On I was thrilled. I would have an easy way to take a calming Essential oil blend with me on the go!
MoodBliss Essential Oil Roll On Blends helps to calm and freshen the mind and body by using the power of therapeutic grade aromatherapy oils such as Ylang Ylang, Clary Sage, Marjoram, Lavender and Petitgrain.
Others have noted in the Amazon product page that NativOrganics uses Almond Oil as the carrier, so if you are allergic to Almonds, you would definitely want to stay away from this product.
The manufacturer claims that by easing body tension and restoring equilibrium you will feel more relaxed and calm through their natural stress remedy. Their stress essential oil roll on blend fits into your handbag and even your pocket comfortably to make it easier to use essential oils for anxiety.
To use, you apply MoodBliss to the temples, the back of the neck, the wrists or any other pulse points and massage in gently as well as inhale directly.
When the product arrived it was wrapped in bubble wrap so that it would not break in transit. The roller ball rolls nice and smooth. The oil absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave my skin feeling overly greasy. I found the scent to be somewhat lacking. It smells wonderful, but the scent isn’t very strong and seems to dissipate within minutes. Thankfully I have not had a migraine since it arrived to test it out for that, but I have had some stressful days that I was able to use it. I didn’t notice a difference in my stress/anxiety level, and I am guessing it is because the scent doesn’t last long. Other amazon reviewers say they had positive reactions to it so it might just be that it affects different people to different degrees.
I’m going to continue using this when I feel stressed on anxious, or when I have a migraine coming on to see if it helps, because it is convenient to carry. I am hoping it is more helpful with migraines than it has been for stress levels.
