Inspiration from Japan

Posted by Micki Mutch on

In the name of buying slow, sparking joy and creating your best life, I wanted to start sharing more about my process. How I design products and scent profiles, what my work space looks like, how I make the goodies and what inspires me. It's hard for me to do as I typically share myself with my close friends and family and am more reserved with the rest of the world, but I realise that you want to know the how and why behind what you buy and I am happy to provide that for you.  To get started, I...

Posted by Micki Mutch on

I was at a friend's house and got to chatting about some face oils she had purchased but only a few months later were smelling very off. As soon as she brought the bottles out, I could tell why. They were packaged in clear glass and she has a big, beautiful window in her washroom.  I thought it might be helpful to share some science behind the packaging for oils so you know how to buy them! You might notice, all of my products are in amber glass. While I do love the look, it's for more than just aesthetics. Oils...

Diffuser FAQs including how to clean your diffuser

Posted by Micki Mutch on

Here are some FAQs to help keep your diffuser clean and your oils smelling great.  Can I use one diffuser for all of my oils? Yes! No need to own a million diffusers (unless you want to) but one can be used for all of your oils. You can mix oils right in the diffuser too. Try 2 drops of peppermint with 6 drops of lavender, right in the water tank!  What kinds of oils can I diffuse? This is important. Make sure you're using pure essential oils without "carrier" oils such as jojoba, coconut, or almond oil. Viscous oils could clog...

5 Ways to use essential oils without a diffuser

Posted by Micki Mutch on

There are a lot of affordable and minimal ways to use essential oils without an electronic diffuser. Here are some of my favourites!   1. Add a few drops to an unscented candle. I love buying unscented beeswax candles from a local maker <3  2. I personally love wearing gemstone and lava Diffuser Bracelets. I find them to be a comfortable piece of jewelry and when I apply 1 drop per lava stone, the fragrance can last all day. I learned this by spilling oils on a bracelet one day. More is more! 3. Put a small pot of water on...
