the Saje aromaTime ultrasonic diffuser
This year more than ever, I am focusing on self care. After having a baby, it's pretty easy to forget to take care of yourself - and it can even sometimes feel selfish. But the truth is, you are better equipped to take care of others when you are the best version of yourself - happy and healthy!
Part of my wellness routine includes aromatherapy. Ever since my first visit to Saje, I've been pretty obsessed. I like to use natural products wherever possible, and their blends are both natural and effective, which really is the goal! I first became hooked on their stress release blend when I realized it really did calm me down (and it smells amazing). As someone who deals with high stress and anxiety I will absolutely take all the natural remedies I can get - especially when it's as simple as a roll-on oil. You may also recall my reco of their unwind mist, another must buy!!
I'd been wanting a diffuser for my home so that I could pump the aromatherapy goodness all day every day, especially since I'm at home and dealing with an increasingly active monkey every day! Enter the aromaTime ultrasonic diffuser. This machine is magic.
The aromaTime has two chambers - an east and a west - each with their own timer. You can put a different blend in either side and give each a unique timer to help you through different parts of your day. I love to use the tranquility blend in the west tank to help me fall asleep, and the energy blend in the east tank to help me wake up in the morning! In this case, Saje recommends setting the timer one hour before you have to fall asleep or wake up to let the blend diffuse. However, you can turn each tank on and off as needed!
Afternoon pick-me-up, anyone?
Even though I'm *always* tired, sometimes I have a hard time turning my brain off at the end of the day. Anyone else have that problem? Diffusing the tranquility blend in my aromaTime really helps me to relax and fall asleep quickly! And I've found that diffusing it throughout the night helps me to sleep better overall.
The diffuser has a 6 hour run time with a full tank, and it turns off by itself when it's empty, which I think is a great feature for those of us who are on the go/forgetful (emphasis on forgetful 😉).
What I love about this machine (besides the amazing dual tanks), is that it quickly and efficiently diffuses the oils, filling your space with calming notes. Whatever your aromatherapy needs are, just drop the blend into the aromaTime, and within minutes your home is transformed. I have also found the quiet hum of the diffuser to be super calming - now I can't sleep without it!!
As you can see, the machine is très chic, and it fits into any space (and it also comes in black!). I frequently move it from my bedroom to my living room to use it during different times of the day. When I woke up today I was feeling more exhausted than usual, so I used my energy roll-on and put the energy diffuser blend in the aromaTime, and now I'm feeling so much better. It's crazy what a little aromatherapy can do!
The machine also has a really convenient clock/light which can be turned on or off, and works great as a subtle nightlight! Anyone else still like a nightlight?? Tell me I'm not alone! 😅
Some of my favourite blends to use in the aromaTime are:
- stress release
- sleep well
- spa spirit
That's not to say that these blends must only be used for day or night, it's just what I've found to be effective for me! I learned that different blends can be more effective for different people, so go to the store and try them out!! See what works for you.
If you're anything like me, you'll love being able to keep two different blends in the aromaTime at once. It's like having two diffusers!
Whatever your wellness goals may be for 2018, I really recommend you make aromatherapy part of your daily routine! It takes no time at all, and is such an easy and effective way to help you feel better.
If you don’t know which blends you like, or which would be most beneficial to you, the staff at Saje are super knowledgeable and are always willing to help you achieve your wellness goals! Go now! Even just walking through the store makes you feel good.
