I’m embarrassed to say I’m a recovering jaw clencher.
It’s a nasty, stress-induced habit my dentist alerted me to in January and I’ve been trying to break it ever since. Not only is clenching the jaw a rather UN-enjoyable experience, it also happens to be bad for your teeth — which is obviously a not-good thing! So I’ve been really ramping up my meditation this year, reintroducing myself to the practice of yoga and seeking out calming scents wherever possible.
If all this sounds familiar to you, perhaps we can all find solace in the fact that we are not alone in our stressful states!
There is a lot of wrong happening around the globe as well as the countless challenges that arise while navigating adulthood.
And while it’s wonderful to be entering the holiday season, there’s no denying that these last two months of the years tend to be served with stress on side. Pressures come from work while trying to wrap up Q4, pressures come from family and pressures can even come from yourself as you attempt to be everything for everyone all at once.
It was after a couple stressful days when an email dropped in from Scentered recently, introducing themselves and their lineup of aroma-therapeutic products to DreaminLace. It was a thrilling and well-timed discovery that felt like a gift from the universe – not to mention a sign I needed to calm down.
Fantastically named, Scentered specializes in “scented” products that “center” you. *wink*
The brand recognizes the high volume of stressors we face in our daily loves and taps into the body’s response to fragrance as a form of therapeutic self-love to get through it all.
Their product lineup uses natural essential oils to boost wellbeing in five areas:
- Boosting Happiness
- Fostering Love for the Self and Others
- Improving Sleep
- Providing Mental Escapism
Everything is also smartly packaged in a way to be reused, recycled or repurposed!
Perfect Stress-Relief Gifts from Scentered
Knowing how much we all need to find ways to relax in our day-to-day lives, I was delighted to try a package of Scentered‘s products in hopes they’d make for some terrific stress relief gift ideas during the holidays — and they certainly lived up to those expectations!
I was immediately impressed by how clean and smooth the products apply as well as how strongly scented they are. We’ve all been there before where you’re practically inhaling a product trying to make out its fragrance as it’s so lightly scented. Fortunately I didn’t have to work overtime here, at all.
The aromatherapy balms and candle I received were immediately effective with a powerful but not overbearing level of fragrance.
As you build your holiday shopping list, Scentered does have a variety of stress relief gifts available that can be used from the comfort of home as well as during life on-the-go.
Keep reading below to learn more about the balms I have been using and a candle that you can safely say works miracles when it comes to getting better sleep!
Scentered Sleep-Well Home Aromatherapy Candle
PALMAROSA, LAVENDER & YLANG YLANG
If you are looking for stress relief gifts that make falling asleep a more effortless process – the award-winning Scentered Sleep-Well candle is definitely an option well worth considering!
As someone who has battled chronic insomnia since high school, I was a real skeptic that this candle would manage to make more than a dent in my troubled sleeping habits. But there’s no arguing with the hard-hitting data from my FitBit that this candle does manage to improve not just the experience of falling asleep — but the quality of sleep I’m getting all around.
I’ve been setting this up on a nightstand for some tech-free time before bed. While reading magazines or doing Chelsea Jackson Roberts meditations on Peloton (I’m obsessed with her!!), the candle brings about a calmer state of being where I soon start noticing my eyelids getting heavier. When this happens – I go *poof* and blow this out then drift off to sleep more easily than usual.
The nice smell and help with falling asleep are definitely appreciated — but what makes this particular candle one of my top picks for stress relief gifts is how effectively it improves sleep as a whole!! My FitBit reports that following some time by the candle at night, my heart rate maintains a restorative state and I experience longer periods of deep and REM sleep modes. And as such a famous light sleeper — that’s a miracle in my book.
