Innovative design can be described as showing people what they can have, rather than merely giving them what they want: and this often translates to expanded functionality. When your apartment has limited tabletop and storage space, it’s especially fun to discover one product that can replace two or three devices you use regularly. Are you fond of infusing your home with comforting scents? And do you love to set a mood with colorful lighting? Perhaps you are also in the market for a small humidifier to offset the drier indoor air during winter months. If you’re feeling any or all of these scenarios, then you will want to check out the Innogear Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser.

Innogear is a pioneering company in the art of aromatherapy, and they offer a range of home diffusers to meet your needs and complement your decor. I received the Model AD309D, seen above, for the purpose of this review. Let’s look at everything this diffuser can do!

You may not be aware that September is World Candle Month; an annual opportunity to recognize the amazing candle, its impact throughout history, and the role candles play in our daily lives. This year’s theme is Illuminate Your Life, and is dedicated to the ways candles light up our world and fragrance our homes. Since the earliest days of tallow-based candles to the tens of thousands of shapes, sizes, and fragrances available today, candles have been a source of more than just light. They have provided inspiration, relaxation, and calming sensations that are as welcome today as they have been throughout history.

This year’s World Candle Month shines a light on how much candles contribute to our health and mental well-being, especially during these unbelievably stressful times. The Spa Girl Life, a newly-launched luxury and vegan candle brand, is the perfect solution for anyone looking to unwind and de-stress this fall. For their warmth, glow, fragrance and meditation-enhancing qualities, candles have been part of my daily life for as long as I can remember, so I was  overjoyed to recently receive one of The Spa Girl Life’s candles to review for the blog.

The Spa Girl Life offers eight different candle fragrance and stone pairings that allow you to personalize a mind-body wellness experience. Like a Mini First Aid Kit For The Soul, these candle / crystal pairings are a fun, useful, and practical way to make some quiet time for yourself amid the chaos of the day. You don’t need to have a meditation practice in place to use them; just light your candle, sit back, and allow some quiet time and space for yourself. We can all benefit from being calm and centered, and when you can find that within yourself, you will know a sense of peace like no other.

Website of the Day: Serenity By Jan

Serenity by Jan: “Smell the Serenity”

Here’s another awesome website discovery for fans of The Office: Serenity By Jan Candles. Operated secretly by NBC / Universal’s Merchandise Store, Serenity By Jan sells the same aromatherapy candles made by Michael Scott’s ex-boss and former lover, Jan Levinson Gould. The candles are sold in sets of four selected scents such as Merlot Morning (Merlot), Enchantmint (Peppermint), Hunter Green (Apple Spice) and Bottled Water (Cucumber/Melon) for what I’d say is a pretty reasonable price of just $15 per set. With Christmas coming up, I’m thinking these candles would make a great gift for any Office fanatic. Be sure to check out the site’s hilarious fake testimonials by various employees of Dunder Miflin.
