I was kicking around on Twitter, as you do, and noticed this woman tweeting about aromatherapy oils. Not just any old aromatherapy oils but little phials that looked for all the world as if they’d been dropped by fairies, or fallen out of a treasure chest from the 1001 Nights. Pretty shiny things that, for some strange reason, reminded me of being young (I’m trying to catch the connection and I think it might be that trend for shiny metallic Christmas wrapping paper). I don’t really know why but they just…flirted. Appallingly.
I frittered away a ridiculous amount of time wandering around the Tazeka website, trying to decide which blends I needed the most. It was tough – I reckoned it had to be Optimism and Balance above all else, followed by a swift dose of Motivation, Confidence and Concentrate. And yet my eye was also drawn to Meditation Guru (something has to haul me back to meditation practice). Slim Solution? Yup, that would go down well too. Actually it was all starting to give me a headache. Oh, right, Headache Helper.
So now I have them all lined up on my desk and I double and triple layer them – because, frankly, one really needs to be optimistic and balanced and motivated and confident (not to mention calm and focused and slim and serene) on a regular basis, right? I also play around with them, like toys, lining them up according to my mood – sometimes they go in chakra order from purple (Wise Woman) down to deep red (Confidence) and sometimes I go for colour clashes.
Anyhow. The business is really really new and at the moment you can only order from the US (which whacks postage on). Sooo…come on, let’s get these out there, okay? If you know any spas or gorgeous shops that would like to run the range, get in touch with Zena. If you know any beauty or health editors (anywhere in the world) who might run a review, get in touch. Why? Because, I don't know about you but I love people who have a passion and who make their dreams come true. Plus I get a serious kick out of a product that not only works really well but which looks pretty damn fabulous too – and these are seriously lush.
I’ve reviewed them, in a slightly more sane and reasoned manner, on Queen of Retreats. Check it out here.
