Blogmas Day 7: Natural Holiday Headache Remedy with Saje

DSC_0145

Holiday’s are known to bring headaches. Not only can they come from the stress of holiday shopping, party planning, and finding a parking spot at the mall, but also from the changing weather and the cold, dry air.

I suffer from headaches quite often. Anything can set me off and once the headache is there I’m pretty much out for the count. I used to carry Tylenol with me everywhere I went but in the last six months I’ve developed an allergy to Tylenol and anything else that is used for simple aches, pains, and headaches. Pretty inconvenient if you ask me. So I went on the search for natural headache remedies…..and ones that actually work.

iuhjuI had friends suggesting things such as Tumeric Powder and other natural supplements for headaches, but I really didn’t believe in them (not to say that they don’t work – I never actually tried). But on a break from work recently, when I was still working downtown, I wandered over to the Eaton Centre and my nose drew me to Saje, a newly opened natural wellness store that is all the craze and is popping up all over Canada.

Their products include a wide range of essential oils and natural wellness remedies for any kind of health concern. Their line of pain relief is extremely popular and was perfect for my needs! So for $36 I picked up the Headache Relief Kit. The kit contains everything that you need in the event of a headache. It includes the best selling Peppermint Halo both in roll-on and want application. It’s best to apply to roll-on around the hairline and the wand around the scalp to quickly get rid of that headache. I like to use the roll-on on the base of my neck and the wand around my temples too. The kit also includes a Calming Stress Release Mist, which helps alleviate symptoms of mild anxiety and promotes relaxation. Amazing for this time of year!

So if you’re looking for some great stress and headache relievers this holiday season then go natural! Check out Saje for all of your health and wellness needs, or even just to sigh a deep breath of relief as you walk into their heavenly smelling stores! Great for gifting this year!

Rocky Mountain Soap Co.

I am currently on a work assignment in Alberta and I stumbled across the Rocky Mountain Soap Co. I think it was the smell that drew me towards the store. Not only is it such a nice looking place, but you can smell the fresh and flowery scent from miles away. The store is a lot like Lush, but more nature-y. To compare the two, I would say that Lush is very much like candy, whereas Rocky Mountain is more like a walk in the garden. It is absolutely wonderful. I didn’t want to leave.

When I walked in I realized that I had been there before. A few years ago while I was in Calgary I bought one of their body butters, the best part of which is that it comes in packaging similar to a deodorant stick. That means you don’t have to get your hands all lotion-y while trying to apply it and rub it in. But I quickly ran out of it since it was amazing. The store has an amazing selection for sensitive skin, eczema, babies, men, sun protection, bug protection, perfumes, infusers, etc.

I only spent about $20 in the store this time. I bought a Lavender Body Butter, as well as two bars of homemade soaps: Lavender and Green Tea. I’m super excited to use the soaps, and I’ve already cracked into the Body Butter. It’s absolutely amazing!!! Not too greasy like other thick body butters. And I love that I don’t have to get my hands dirty when I really only want to put it on my elbows, knees, and feet. The lavender smell is heavenly, and I know that it has added to the amazing sleeps that I’ve been having.

I really really hope that make it back to the store to get some more before I leave Alberta. I’ve heard the bath salts are to die for, as well as the massage oils. I’m already completely hooked.

AND THE BEST PART? Until October 31 of this year you can get free shipping when you order at http://www.rockymountainsoap.com if you enter the code: SUNSHINETD The pricing is great! And sooooooooo worth it!! So get shopping my lovelies! And discover why it’s so easy to love Rocky Mountain Soap Co.
