Saje Pocket Farmacy Remedy Kit

Saje Natural Wellness Pocket Pharmacy

Hello, hello!

Today I’m sharing the Pocket Farmacy Remedy Kit from Saje Natural Wellness.



Saje Natural Wellness Pocket Pharmacy

Inside the zipped Pocket Farmacy are five remedies: Peppermint Halo, Immune, Eater’s Digest, Stress Release and Pain Release in 6ml (0.2 fl oz) bottles, as well as an instructional leaflet that contains info on each of the five remedies, as well as instructions for use.


PEPPERMINT HALO (for headaches)

Saje Natural Wellness Pocket Farmacy

Apply as desired to entire hairline, creating a halo effect. Apply to neck and shoulders for extra cooling and relaxation, avoiding eyes. For prolonged use, consult a doctor.

IMMUNE (for germ and virus fighting)

Saje Natural Wellness Pocket Farmacy

Rub on the throat and chest in a thick layer. Cover with a warm, dry cloth if desired. Clothing should be loose about throat and chest to help vapours reach the nose and mouth. Use up to three times daily or as directed by a doctor. Children under 12 years of age, consult a doctor.

EATER’S DIGEST ( for digestion easing)

Saje Natural Wellness Pocket Farmacy

Treat your tummy to an aromatic massage with soothing and comforting peppermint, fennel, chamomile and black pepper. Apply directly onto stomach, as desired and massage in gently. For prolonged use, consult a doctor.

STRESS RELEASE (for tension reducing)

Saje Natural Wellness Pocket Farmacy

To support a sense of balance and calm the spirit, apply to forehead, neck and shoulders. Put several drops on a tissue and inhale deeply or insert into pillowcase before bed. Add 10-25 drops to a bowl of steaming water; inhale deeply for 5-10 minutes. Add 7-12 drops to a full bath and swish to disperse well. For prolonged use, consult a doctor.

PAIN RELEASE (for muscular aches, tenseness, stiffness, an analgesic)

Saje Natural Wellness Pocket Farmacy

Apply to affected area not more than 3-4 times daily. Not recommended for children under 12 years of age.

Let me tell you, the Immune one got a LOT of use over the holidays when I was sick!

I’ve tried all of them out over the past several weeks, and I’m so happy that I bought this little aromatherapy kit for myself as all five remedies are things that I’ve used and will continue to use in the new year.

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
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?

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! ❤

Nuworld Botanicals - Stress Relief

Today I’m reviewing the Stress Relief personal aromatherapy products – the Marine Mineral Bath Soak, and the Signature Roll-On.

Nuworld Botanicals - Multi-Mineral Bath Soak

Starting with the Marine Mineral Bath Soak / Multi-Mineral Bath Soak:

Stress Relief Mineral Bath Soak is unique synergy blend of pure essential oils known to be useful in reducing stress and its side effects including certified organic Sweet Orange, Bergamot and Grapefruit. Ideal for brightening moods.

A luxurious spa-inspired bath treatment formulated with 100 percent pure and organic essential oils, premium dead sea salts and hand-minded Pink Himalayan rock salts. Rich in over 80 minerals and trace elements, including magnesium, potassium, copper and iron, this salt blend will rejuvenate the body, stimulate circulation and soothe tired or sore muscles. Acts as a powerful detoxifier that draws out toxins and impurities. Softens and cleanses the skin; skin feels smooth and supple.

The Stress Relief Marine Mineral Bath Soak is so soothing and relaxing. I love using bath salts because they really do work on relaxing and detoxing the body, while the aromatherapy helps calm the mind and relieve stress.

Nuworld Botanicals - Stress Relief

The Stress Relief Signature Roll-On is great, I can keep it in my purse for when I need a little de-stressing action on the go.

Stress Relief features a unique synergy blend of pure essential oils known to be useful in reducing stress and its side effects including certified organic orange sweet, bergamot, grapefruit and others. Ideal for brightening moods. Infused with superfruit anti-oxidants this nutrient-enriched oil blend nourishes skin with Vitamins A, B, C & E while stimulating the senses instantly. Natural UVA/UVB protection. To Use: Massage onto pulse point areas on the skin– back of neck (or just below ears), inside wrists or temples. Breathe in the gentle aroma for an overall sense of well-being and restoration.

I’m in love with both of these products. The blend of orange, bergamot, grapefruit, ylang ylang and patchouli is so soothing.
