Going Somewhere? Take a Mood Booster + Contest!

This Friday I'm travelling with my husband to Pheonix for the holidays. I'm packing one of these in my purse for a stress-free voyage and I've got one for a lucky reader too!

As excited as I am to visit new places, and as much as I love to travel, my nerves often get the better of me. Flying doesn't put me in the best of moods: I tend to get frazzled, nervous and excited all at once - and that's if everything goes perfectly, which as the travellers among us know, isn't very often.

Luckily, I'm prepared for Friday's flight, as earlier this month I met with La Bella Figura founder Victoria Fantauzzi and Clementine Fields founder Ingrid Doucet for an introduction to the La Bella Figura Travel Therapy Botanical Mood Booster. This 5ml roll on smells warm, spicy and of a woodsy musk. A deep inhale puts me in another place: A calm, serene beach kind of place.

The aromatherapy concentrate doubles as an instant boost by rolling onto palms and inhaling or applying behind ears, on wrists and inside the elbow as a perfume. The blend of wild flowers, herbs and spices work as a perk up when fatigued and calm when anxiety strikes: The sweet woodiness of Organic Blue Tansy eases overwhelm, Bulgarian Rose Otto and Italian Blood Orange delete stress as it comes, and the clinical grade of essential oils blend makes for a unique and natural travel relief. The best is, it'll tuck perfectly into the tiniest of purses as a go-to all the while I'm away.

La Bella Figura Travel Therapy Botanical Mood Booster is now available at Clementine Fields for preorder. Going somewhere? Get one to take with!

Thankfully, the lovely founders sent me on my merry way with one for the road, and one for a lucky reader!

  2. oooo. sounds fabulous. i'm addicted to good smells. lavendar baths, yes please. afternoon peppermint tea...mmm. also i will hug anyone who smells like patchouli for extended periods of time. (yes, i've been called a dirty hippy before. hippy's don't understand twitter...) travel sized scent and mood enhancer sounds oh so perfect and i could take it with me for my month long trip in Peru!!

  3. ooo. i love smells that change my mood. vanilla scented massages. lavender infused baths. afternoon peppermint tea. hugging patchouli fragranced hippies. i love it all. and would especially love a scent that makes me feel good at the same time as smell good. i could bring it with me on my month long trip to Peru....just in case i don't find any hippies or bathtubs. xo

  4. Exited to try this because I typically do not travel well. Stress and anxiety about flying could probably be helped with aromatherapy and I am certainly willing to try!
