Not sure about you, but this is the time of year where my mind is off in the Caribbean somewhere. I imagine myself lying in a hammock and gazing out into the clear ocean waters, margarita by my side, the smell of suntan lotion strong in the sweet air. If I try hard enough, I can feel the breeze in my curls and the sand between my fingers as I strech over the edge of the fabric.
It’s so vivid an image that I sometimes have to remind myself that I am, in fact, on a crowded train on my way to work in midtown Manhattan. I conjured up this image just the other day when a man just behind me was so eager to get on the path train that he shouted “move, move, move!” in my ear while pushing me forward. I didn’t have the voice so early in the morning to explain nicely that it’s customary to wait for people to file out first before entering the train… and I have a feeling my words may have been punctuated by a slight jab in the ribs.
Until I am able to afford a getaway to the Caribbean (or anywhere outside of the tri-state area, for that matter), I’m excited to tell you about a company that may help ward off some of the winter blues. I was recently introduced to Ninette, a hardworking mother of five (!) and the founder of Josiah’s Oils at an aromatherapy party I attended with my friend Nicole. Offering a wide range of 100% natural and holistic essential oils, her products help to decrease depression, increase relaxation, reduce sleeplessness, increase focus, and much more. In other words, they are the perfect pick-me-up and remedy for this time of year.
Ninette has graciously offered to donate some products for a giveaway to one very lucky reader of My Pixie Blog. He/she will receive the following items from Josiah’s Oils:
(1) 4-oz. bottle of Relaxation Diffusing Mist Spray
Contains distilled water and the following essential oils: tangerine, citrus fruit, lavender, ylang ylang, patchouli, and blue tansy. All of these oils calm tensions and lift the spirit, promoting relaxation. When massaged on the bottoms of the feet, this product can help you enjoy a peaceful night’s rest. Ninette says she “…find[s] it especially calming and comforting to young children after an overactive day or activites!” I have this at home and spray it in the sheets before I go to sleep. It is magical, truly.
(1) 4-oz. bottle of Sinus Relief Diffusing Mist Spray
Contains distilled water, and the following essential oils: peppermint, rosemary, eucalyptus, lavender, and lemon. These oils are anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, promoting oxygen to the lungs and breaking mucus. Just inhale and feel the difference–immediately! These fine mist bottles also work to diffuse the oils into the air.
(1) Herbal Weighted Eye Pillow
This relaxation eye pillow is made of organic dried corn, grains*, and lavender, sage, or rosemary. It can be chilled (simply place in a ziplock bag and put it in the fridge or freezer) or microwaved. Pillow not only relaxes, but removes puffiness, too!
*Gluten-free version is also available.
