I’m a strong believer in the power of essential oils and aromatherapy. I use essential oils in different areas of my home for different purposes and have a massive collection of over 120 oils (when I commit, I commit).
So when Blends With Benefits reached out, I was very excited to try their oil blends! Blends With Benefits is a brand-new Canadian company that creates 100% natural, wildcrafted and organic essential oil blends.
When you get essential oil blends from Blends With Benefits, that’s exactly what you get. No fillers, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, or synthetic fragrances, just pure, therapeutic grade essential oils.
Not only that, but they take great pride in sourcing their oils from ethical farms, usually family owned and always either wildcrafted or organic oils. They even run their own chemical analysis of the oils to ensure quality.
Their packaging is all sourced in North America and their oils blended right here in British Columbia. I’m proud to share this beautiful province with such an ethical brand!
Thank you Blends With Benefits for giving me the opportunity to try your oil blends! I’m so proud to be collaborating with such an amazing brand!
I was intrigued by the Awake blend. I’m a morning person but if there’s an oil blend out there that can make mornings easier, I’m all ears!
In the mornings I wake up before the kids to get some work done at my computer, then when the kids go down for naps, I usually squeeze in a little more work time (along with cleaning and laundry, etc, etc).
Having small windows of time to get a lot of work done means I really have to focus and not dilly dally. I started using the Awake blend in the mornings, but progressed to using it whenever I needed to be alert and efficient.
Blends With Benefits suggests rolling this blend on the back of your neck and on your shoulders, but I also like to put it on the inside of my wrists, especially if I’m working at my desk when my hands are right under my nose.
This blend gives off a strong minty smell, which I find very refreshing. The oil that seems to come through the strongest in my opinion is peppermint. And I love peppermint.
That could be one of the reasons I love this blend so much!
I find peppermint really gets me focused and refreshed, I used to chew peppermint gum when I worked to get the same kind of effect. This blend is very in invigorating and refreshing, perfect for mornings or mid-day slumps.
Thanks again to Blends With Benefits for sending the Awake blend my way! It sits at my desk and gets used daily!
