The Power of Scent: How to Turn Your Skincare Routine Into A Sensory Experience With Aromatherapy

I’m a big believer that your skincare routine shouldn’t just be another part of your day you go through while on autopilot. Rather, it should be a ritualistic sensory experience that provides you with a moment of mindfulness. When you spend time on self-care, it totally transforms how you feel about yourself and others. Taking the time to have a moment alone to take the best care of yourself allows you to prepare for the day or a good night’s sleep while setting an intention. As much as I love quick routines that get you out the door looking fabulous when you’re in a rush, I urge you to try and slow down your routine a bit whenever time permits.

My line of holistic natural skincare has been designed to provide you with an experience, as well as results. I’ve always treasured how certain aromas can transport you to another time and place and make you feel totally different, which is why the majority of my products contain essential oils. For many centuries, various cultures have utilized herbs for well-being. From infusing oils with herbs to distilling their own essential oils, aromatherapy has a longstanding history as being an impactful compliment to medicinal practices. Many essential oils have an aromatic element while also benefitting the skin itself. When I was formulating my line, it was important to me that my products provided a scent experience in addition to results-driven skin perfecting benefits. So next time you are cleansing your face or applying your serum, I encourage you take a minute to slow down and take a deep breath. Inhale the aroma of the product and enjoy the experience of applying it and doing something amazing for yourself. ​​​​​​​

My Vitamin C Cleanser contains Orange Essential Oil and Tangerine Essential Oil for an uplifting citrus scent that wakes you up. This cleanser is created with a medley of good for you ingredients to brighten, reduce skin inflammation and balance oil production, while the gentle low-lather formula creates tiny microbubbles to break down makeup and dirt. The zingy citrus scent revitalizes your mind and body. Specifically, both Tangerine and Orange Essential Oil have a wonderful mood-boosting effect, as well as anti-inflammatory properties, which essentially calms down your skin, allowing your bright, clear skin to shine through.

I’ve always especially loved the aroma of my Chamomile Toner, which elicits the feeling of being cuddled up with your favorite cup of tea. The Lavender Essential Oil and Chamomile Floral Water present in this probiotic-charged mist are known for their amazing calming properties. In addition, rosemary, lavender, and lemon essential oils naturally help kill bacteria on skin’s surface. Perfect for everyday use on top of makeup or as an anti-aging treatment on-the-go, I recommend using this spray before and after a workout or throughout the day.

My best-selling Black Currant Serum contains Rose Damascena Oil and Sandalwood Essential Oil for a delicate aroma that promotes mental clarity, while uplifting and easing irritability. This celebrity favorite daily serum is designed to nourish and revive skin, which is why the Rose Damascena Essential Oil that provides a lovely aroma also regenerates skin cells and reverses aging. Skin drinks it up the serum with ease, and emerges calm, healthy and glowing. Are you familiar with the benefits that essential oils can have on both your wellbeing and your skin? Would you try turning your daily skincare regimen into a sensory experience? Let me know if you try slowing down your routine and adding in a few deep breathes to get some aromatherapy benefits on top of glowing skin!
