Saje Diffuser Blend Reviews

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing a few of the Saje Diffuser Blends.  I bought myself an Aroma Gem  diffuser / nebulizer from Saje for Christmas (review is here), and I’ve since purchased and tested out a few more essential oil blends.

Saje Diffuser Blends

Glow  (Enticing Diffuser Blend)


Indulge with the sweetly comforting and uplifting aroma of this vanilla-based blend that brings warmth and calm to the body and mind.
  • vanilla 10% infusion (vanilla planifolia fruit extract)
  • peppermint (mentha piperita)
  • ginger (zingiber officinale)
  • patchouli (pogostemum cablin)
  • peru balsam (myroxylon pereirae)
  • cinnamon (cinnamomum cassia)

Saje Glow Diffuser Blend

This one really does have a spicy scent to it. I don’t smell the peppermint note at all. I like this one, but I don’t love it. I find that this blend can become overpowering really quickly unless you use the smallest amount.

Peppermint Twist (Refreshing Diffuser Blend) –

Relish in this refreshing blend that inspires feelings of walking in a winter wonderland. Peppermint and orange invigorates the senses, while benzoin adds a sweet touch of joy.
  • peppermint (mentha piperita)
  • orange (citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel oil)
  • spearmint (mentha viridis (spearmint) leaf oil)
  • benzoin (styrax benzoin resin extract)

Saje Peppermint Twist Diffuser Blend

I absolutely love this one, it is so fresh smelling. I think that it might be my favourite one that I’ve tried thus far!

Liquid Sunshine (Cheerful Diffuser Blend) –

Fill your room with cheery radiance and uplifting spirits. Bright, citrus notes of grapefruit, lime and a dash of bergamot will bring the feeling of a fresh spring morning to mind.
Let happiness shine through.


  • grapefruit (citrus grandis (grapefruit) peel oil)
  • bergamot (citrus aurantium bergamia (bergamot) fruit oil)
  • orange (citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel oil)
  • lime (citrus aurantifolia (lime) peel oil)
  • mandarin red (citrus nobilis (mandarin orange) peel oil)

Saje Liquid Sunshine

Liquid Sunshine was my fave until I tried Peppermint Twist. I still love this one, especially on dreary cold mornings. It is a such bright and happy scent!

Energy Boost (Revitalizing Diffuser Blend) –

Seeking stimulation? Look no further than the energizing power of citrus and herbal notes in this uplifting, invigorating blend designed to revitalize your mind the natural way.
Stay sharp.
  • lemon (citrus limonum)
  • rosemary (rosmarinus officinalis)
  • peppermint (mentha piperita)
  • basil (ocimum basilicum)
  • bergamot (citrus bergamia)

Saje Energy Diffuser Blend

This one is a weird blend, but it somehow works. It is another bright scent, but the herbal notes make it stand out. I tend to use this one in the afternoons, rather than have a cup of coffee for a boost while I’m working.

I really do need to buy a second diffuser. I’m always moving my Aroma Gem between the bedroom and the livingroom / workspace.

What is your fave diffuser blend? I’ve only tried ones from Saje so far.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

Saje AromaGem Ultrasonic Diffuser / Nebulizer

Saje Natural Wellness

Hello, hello!

I’ve recently given a sneak peak of my recent Saje Natural Wellness purchase on my InstaGram.

Saje Natural Wellness

Saje has several different nebulizer / diffusers on their website. I picked the AromaGem Ultrasonic Nebulizer / Diffuser for two reasons, the first being that it is really beautiful, and the second being that it has both continual and intermittent mist function.
Since purchasing the AromaGem, I’ve been using it daily, in my office / living room and in the bedroom at night. I’m planning purchasing a second one so I don’t have to be carrying it from one end of the house to the other. *descriptions in italics taken from the website*
Infuse your air with the vitality of nature and create a soothing atmosphere by diffusing 100% natural essential oils. Add a splash of chic to any space with this decorative gem.

I find that it runs for way longer than two to four hours before turning itself off – the auto-shut off is another great feature of this little machine.
As well, I also purchased the Good Health Diffuser Blend Collection which contains four of Saje’s diffuser blends: Tranquility, Stress Release, Liquid Sunshine and Immune.
Saje Natural Wellness
Saje Natural Wellness
Tranquility (Roman Chamomile, Lavender, Ylang Ylang) – Create an oasis of calm and promote restful thoughts amidst the busyness of your day with this relaxing essential oil blend. Perfect for bedtime or when you want a little downtime. This one is great. I’ve been using this one before going to bed.
Stress Release (Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Orange) – Reach for this powerful blend of grounding essential oils to soothe feelings of mild anxiety, restlessness or nervousness by supporting deep relaxation and calm. I’ve used this one both during the day and at night, it is a nice calming scent.
Liquid Sunshine – Fill your room with cheery radiance and uplifting spirits. Bright, citrus notes of grapefruit, lime and a dash of bergamot will bring the feeling of a fresh spring morning to mind. This one is my favourite of the bunch, it is such a bright scent.
Immune – Relieve symptoms of flu such as colds and cough by diffusing the therapeutic benefits of comforting eucalyptus, warming cinnamon and soothing myrrh. This one is great if you are feeling under the weather.
I’ve since ordered a few more essential oil blends during the Black Friday / Cyber Monday sales. That package just arrived last week and I’ve not had a chance to try everything out.
Do you have a diffuser? What is your favourite blend to use?
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

June 2016 Favourites

Hello, hello!

Today I’d like to show you my favourites for the month of June.


Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette + – Most days this month I’ve used this palette. I absolutely love it. Original review is here.

Black Moon Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in Wrath – I’ve worn this lipstick so much this month. Original review is here.

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector – I’ve been using this one every single day since I bought it in mid may. It has really helped with my dark circles from insomnia and puffiness from allergies. Original review is here.

Essence Silky Touch Blush in Babydoll – I’ve been wearing this one a lot these days. Perfect for a summer flush. Original review is here.


Saje Sensitive Elixir (Calming Skin Serum) – My nighttime skin serum. Original review is here.

Nuworld Botanicals Sun Kissed Skin Facial Oil * – My morning skin holy grail. Original review is here.

Bath / Body / Wellness:

I really LOVED everything that I tried from Nuworld Botanicals and have been using them daily. *

Stress Relief Multi-Mineral Bath Soak and  Signature Roll-On* . I’ve used the bath salts up (they are in my June Empties post), and I usually have the Roll-On in my bag or next to my bed so I can use it any time. Original reviews are here.

Anxiety Relief Whipped Borage Oil Hand & Foot Butter, the Multi-Nutritive 3-in-1 Oil and the Signature Roll-On *. The Hand & Body Butter is AMAZING, I use it every night (and usually every morning). I’ve been using the 3-in-1 Oil both in the bath and a few drops on the ends of my hair, it is so moisturizing, and the scent is soothing. The Roll-On is usually in my bag in the day time, or next to my bed at night. Original review is here.

Nuworld Botanicals - Energy Boost

Last, but definitely not least, is the Energy Boost Multi-Nutritive 3-in-1 Oil and the Signature Roll-On*. I am so in love with this scent, it is such a great mood booster. I love to use a few drops of the oil in the bath, or in my hair. And the Roll-On is great for on the go pick-me-ups.

I had quite a few faves this month. What about you, what were your favourites this month?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

Saje Natural Wellness – Sensitive Elixir

Saje Sensitive Elixir

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing another product recommendation from Stashy at Stash Matters – the Sensitive Elixir (Calming Skin Serum) from Saje Natural Wellness. Not only did she recommend the product, she actually brought me (and Cat from My Lip Addiction) to the Queen Street West store during our epic meet-up!

Saje Natural Wellness is a Canadian company, with a focus on the power of nature, 100% all natural ingredients, using real essential oils (no synthetics!), free from parabens (and other nasties), support sustainable practices (renewable resources), and are cruelty-free. And their packaging is made of recycled and / or recyclable materials!

Saje Sensitive Elixir

As you all know, I have sensitive skin. So anything that might help keep my skin happy is a good thing. Here’s what it says on the website:

Sensitive Elixir helps to restructure delicate, sensitive skin that is usually dry and easily irritated. Sensitive skin is thin, and therefore has the blood supply closer to the surface, which often shows the capillaries and blood vessels. Skin-rejuvenating oils of rosehip, grape seed, apricot, and evening primrose are infused with skin-nourishing geranium, rosewood, roman chamomile and lavender essential oils to regenerate the skin. Massage Sensitive Elixir into freshly-cleansed and toned skin to nourish and increase blood circulation.

I’ve been using this serum nearly every single night since purchasing it in May. Normally when the weather starts to change, my skin becomes super sensitive and irritated. But not this year! This oil based serum is gentle and soothing, hydrating without making my skin feel greasy. At first I found the rosewood scent to be a little strong, but I’m getting used to it, and now I really love it! And at $19.95 CAD per 30ml bottle, it is an affordable serum.

Saje Sensitive Elixir


rosa canina (rosehip) fruit  oil, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, oenothera biennis (evening primrose) oil, and essential oils of pelargonium graveolens (geranium), aniba rosaeodora (rosewood), anthemis nobilis (roman chamomile) flower and lavandula angustifolia (lavender).

There are so many things that I want to try from Saje – their skincare, bath and body care, natural deodorants, their nebulizer / diffusers, and their essential oil blends – just to name a few things, haha!

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
