Namaste. I’m feeling very zen right now as I just finished applying tea tree oil on my temples. If you want to have the same disposition as I do, please continue reading this aromatherapy oils from the Philippines review.
Oh jeez, that was such an extra and horrible intro Amanda!
I don’t think that I’m the only Modern Pinay who fancies the spa or massage parlor aroma.
Nothing is more relaxing than a calming whiff of nature especially with all the city’s hustle and bustle.
This is not a sponsored post so don’t try to ruin my calm mood with your false accusations!
Calm down Amanda, grab the lavender variant from your aromatherapy oils collection.
What are aromatherapy oils used for?
Aromatherapy oils are different from essential oils. A usual aromatherapy oil only contains 2% of an essential oil which makes it work very well with the skin.
Pure essential oils can burn our skin so you can’t go crazy using them for a massage session.
Or… you can lure your boyfriend for a massage using an essential oil after you catch him cheating on you. Don’t forget to use gloves sweetie.
Essential oils are mostly used in perfume/soap making and diffusers.
Now that you know the difference, it’s time for you to know the aromatherapy oils that I love.
Zen Zest Aromatherapy Oils Review
I currently have 2 variants from their oils line. The Zen Zest Tea Tree Oil and the Zen Zest Aromatherapy Massage Oil in Green Tea and Grapefruit.
I love both but I prefer one over the other.
Zen Zest Aromatherapy Massage Oil Green Tea and Grapefruit
If you love citrusy scents, I think you’re going to enjoy this one.
The packaging is utilitarian at best but I love the sticker labels used in Zen Zest products as they’re thick and don’t get overwhelmed by damp hands that just touched aromatherapy oils.
I don’t know if it’s the combination of Green Tea and Grapefruit but the scent I’m getting is more similar to mandarin and clementine oranges.
The packaging cites “Energizing” and I totally agree.
Definitely a perfect aromatherapy oil choice for when you’re on a vacation at the beach and you want to start your day feeling relaxed and fabulous.
Personally, I like using this one as a perfume lol.
There is an initial warm feeling right after application and the absence of sticky feeling gets an A+ for me.
Cooling effect can be expected overtime which is helpful in relaxing tense muscles.
Retails at 220 PHP for 100ml, a true steal!
Zen Zest Tea Tree Oil
The tea tree oil variant is something I prefer more because I love oils that instantly deliver cooling effects.
Packaging is like of a small acetone bottle but with a luxe feel. Though small, the product is contained in a glass bottle and is more appealing than the flimsy plastic that the “Energizing” variant has.
I also love the smell. A little hint of spicy/woody yet pleasant is truly something that can relax one’s mind, body, and soul.
Best used for destressing and luxuriating.
Retails at 150 PHP for 14 ~ ml, quite pricier than its citrus counterpart but totally well worth it.
Clivia Pure Organics Aromatherapy Oil Review
Although not as popular as other aromatherapy oils, Clivia Pure Organics already supplies their product to spas and massage parlors.
The packaging is not the best as the sticker label already got tarnished by the oil and the bottle is flimsy but…
…the scent is something that a Modern Pinay who wants to escape from the cosmopolitan world will truly love!
Imagine laying down on a bed of lavender and peppermint, don’t you just feel like getting a massage ASAP!?
The luxurious scent envelopes one’s sore, tense, and aching muscles.
You will surely love the bonus of instantaneous cooling effect that lasts overtime.
Best before going to bed if you desire a restful slumber.
