What a fun and energizing Zen Sunday! This edition includes top 5 scents to help you get back on track when you're not feeling ready or excited for the task ahead.

This easy guide that I created for you includes:

  • Top 5 common challenges/concerns that we all face during the week like frustration, stress and lack of clarity.

  • Top 5 scents to help combat those feelings and get you back on track so you can keep on shining!

FACT - The sense of smell is 10,000 more acute than all of our senses! So that’s why certain smells have the capacity to trigger the release of specific hormones that impact the way we feel and behave.

Why not use this amazing sense that we possess to our advantage?

The scents featured here range from body washes, oils and daily hand washes. The goal is to make it really easy for you to feel rejuvenated using common, every day products. Also, in case you’re not the oil-type-of-person then no problem! Use products that you love, the important component is the scent, got it? Now, let’s have some fun!
