Take a Chill Pill.


Are the fast approaching holidays causing your stress levels to rise? I love love Love holidays, but sometimes feel overwhelmed. Chill Pill, from Aura Cacia, is a great antidote to those stressful moments like dealing with difficult family members or thinking you'll never get everything done. I've been putting a few drops in this plug-in diffuser and it fills the room with the soothing, comforting smell of an herbal blend meant to take the edge off. I like it right before bedtime--it just helps to calm things down.

I'm not a fan of fragrance At All--unless it comes from the plant. Synthetic perfumes and fragrances contain phlalates and chemicals that trigger migraines, asthma attacks, nausea, and all sorts of symptoms in people. Essential oils are extracted from the plant--they smell good and are tolerated by most people who can't handle the fakey stuff. I've tried several Aura Cacia oils and really like their products--it's an inexpensive, healthy way to change your mood and create a tranquil atmosphere. Find it at a discount HERE.

Hi VHL! You can follow the links to the Aura Cacia site on the post, check your local co-op or Whole Foods, Or--my personal favorite, get it cheap here: http://www.vitacost.com/Aura-Cacia-Essential-Solutions-Chill-Pill.

Let me know what you think! (you might want to check it out in person to make sure you like the scent first and they also have other options in the calming genre)

Huh, well that's certainly interesting... I'm not a fan of most perfumes and such, but if this actually worked, I could get behind this sort of thing!
