If you’ve walked into a Day Spa, a New Age book shop, or Asian Imports store, you might associate the memory with the calming aroma of essential oils. It’s no mystery why Aromatherapy  — a range of alternative or complementary therapies that use essential oils and other aromatic plant compounds — is so popular. Everyone loves an inviting scent,  and it’s easy to create a relaxing atmosphere in your home using incense, candles or an essential oil diffuser.  But sometimes you might want your aromatherapy to be a bit more personal and portable.  For those occasions, let me introduce you to Mood Food.

Well, it appears to be that time of year / the pandemic (again) where we’re going back to school, or returning to the office — or at least making an effort. This reboot of a once-famliar-but-now-somewhat-strange ritual necessitates the reexamination of what items we must shove in our purse or backpack so that we feel safe and comfortable leaving the house. You probably have a list: hand sanitizer, tissues, extra mask, and — something I never leave home without — lip balm. Last year, we reviewed the Mongo Kiss Lip Balms by Eco Lips and found this line of all-natural lip protection to be high quality and also fun to use. Win win!

Now, Eco Lips ups their game by introducing a CBD infused line of all-natural lip balms, CBD ME, which ticks all the boxes for me.

The Covid life has familiarized many of us not only with the concept of Working From Home, but also Working Out From Home. Personally, I am doing two or three Zoom workouts each week, which helps to fill up the time I used to spend leaving the house to socialize with other humans. Another thing we can claim a heightened familiarity with (compared to one year ago): Wipes. Did you ever imagine that you would spend such a large percentage of your waking hours wiping things? I sure didn’t. And yet here we are; all about the wipes.

Phone Neck: it is a thing that exists. Whether your neck is sore and stiff from constantly looking down at your devices (we all do it), sitting at your computer for hours, or sleeping in a weird position, life can literally be a pain in the neck. While working from home over the past year, I’ve started using topical CBD products to treat my various muscle aches, and find them to be effective, convenient and fun to use. Recently, I received a new CBD salve from SMPLSTC which I’ve added to my pain management routine. Aside from effectively alleviating my ‘phone neck,’ there are other reasons why I am liking this great-smelling salve.
