Rocky Mountain Soap: September Picks
Happy September to everyone!
It’s been a while hasn’t it? I’ve been catching up with my blog work and trying hard to get back into the swing of things again, but its taken nearly the whole month to find that balance. Thankfully my September picks for Rocky Mountain Soap Co. are centred around aromatherapy.
As it starts to get colder outside, the time to curl up on the couch with a book (and a cold, in my case) starts to roll in, and there’s nothing quite like a new diffuser to make that even more relaxing. Recently Rocky Mountain Soap came out with their own diffuser/humidifier and I was SO excited to get my hands on it. Due to the stress levels from this months workload, it was something I was looking forward to receiving in the mail.
Upon arrival, I unboxed it and was immediately delighted to see two things… the diffuser had a wooden base made of beech wood…and a ceramic top! It looked beautiful and it was so satisfying to see one that wasn’t made entirely from plastic. I bought my mom one for mothers day last year and despite LOOKING like wood, it was actually made from recycled, printed plastic and left me somewhat disappointed. It got points for being environmentally conscious, but it just didn’t have the right visual appeal that the wooden one did. The TEO ultrasonic aroma air diffuser was an instant 10/10 visually (although I did almost drop the lid and shatter it into a million pieces) and if i can be perfectly candid, I wouldn’t say I had high hopes initially as I’ve always struggled to love the diffuser designs from my other favourite wellness and body care shops.
It was a beautiful accent to my desk and instead of looking odd and out of place, looked trendy and blended in with my furniture.
The inside chamber is plastic, but easy to take apart and clean, and when filled it lasts for roughly 4-5 hours. I love the teardrop shape and the black cord can be easily hidden away from sight. Over all, it’s minimal, it’s functional… and it would be my first choice based on what’s on the market right now.
So the design element was certainly a bonus, so lets check that off the list. But i think what really makes this diffuser worth the $88.00 price point is the settings. Because of the ceramic cover it emits a really comforting glow, particularly on the “meditative” setting, which pulses light and is a very soft light source, even in the dark. It can also be set on a timer with 3 different settings and I really like this feature a lot for bedtime.
Along with the diffuser, I picked out a few essential oils that would help me to de-stress and recharge. I have a collection from Saje Wellness that I frequently use, but it was nice to try some new blends by Rocky Mountain Soap Co. that were designed specifically for sleep and stress. Below are a list of the ones I currently have;
Probably my favourite one had to be “Deep Sleep”. The aroma of sandalwood mixed with french lavender and ylang-ylang is a perfect combination with my “sleepy” body Lotion from Lush cosmetics. But considering the cold I am currently battling, I should have also picked up “Breathe Easy” and the Eucalyptus oils.
Overall, Rocky Mountain Soap Co. really hit the mark again with this product. I am looking forward to maybe seeing more EO blends… I would love to see a Yoga Blend hit the shelves as well as well as an outdoorsy Balsam one, buuut the world doesn’t revolve around me (annoyingly). For now it has just been a lovely, organic transition into Autumn with my little puffy machine sending my stress levels on a much needed nose dive.
