Remember way back in the day when The Body Shop had essential oils for relieving stress, waking you up, calming you, etc…
I remember being in High School at the time and one in particular that my friends and I had toted around was a wake up temple oil that smelled of cooling peppermint. You’d take it and place a bit on the temples of your head and on the pulses of your wrist and supposedly this would keep you awake through long lectures (in my case it was the religious study ones that put me out like a light! I went to an all girls private catholic school which meant an hour and a half of religious instruction twice a week!).
Philosophy has recaptured this idea and are selling essential oil sets. I find the entire idea sort of intriguing. Especially since the descriptions sound really interesting! Logically speaking I don’t think the smell of lavender is going to make me sleep but hey at least it comes in a cute gift box right?
They have two sets available with two oils per gift set (.12oz) for $25.
Philosophy ‘Stuffies & Stressies’ has two oils with congestion-relieving eucalyptus to give you the pick me up you need during the yucky flu season!
Of course ‘Stuffies and Stressies also promises to relieve anxiety and stress! The Muse needs a liter of this stuff as her anxiety and stress levels are full on lately.
Obviously, I’m not buying the stress and anxiety relief but I am intrigued to see if it helps my stuffy nose during a harsh cold!
Philosophy ‘Sleepies & Weepies’ is another set the Muse can use as it promises to fight fatigue *yawn*! It also happens to ease depression and make you happy! And just as I was saying earlier, it does all this through the cooling scent of peppermint and citrus oils!
Well the bad news is if you’re depressed, tired, feeling stressed, or just sad I hate to say it but I doubt essential oils are going to help but the good news is these make damn cute novelty gifts 😉
Wanna relieve your stuffies, stressies, sleepies and weepies? Head on over to Nordstrom to purchase these cute gift sets for yourself!
