Double-Duty Fragrances Empower and Purify
By Nicole Wieder, Editorial Assistant |
Feng Shui master, Carole Shashona’s unique line of candles and sprays were designed under the principles of Shashona’s own mantra of “better health, wealth, and life”. With that philosophy and celebrity fans including Susan Sarandon and Julie Chen, I was curious to learn more.
Carole Shashona’s products are formulated from ancient Chinese recipes passed down to Shashona by her feng shui master during her apprenticeship in Hong Kong. With their aromatherapeutic qualities, the sprays and candles can be used for meditation or to simply uplift your mood.
I was originally impressed with the inspiration behind the products since they focus on boosting positive energy in your life. But after trying the mists from the Purify and Empower collections, I learned that they could be used not only as a home fragrance, but as a personal fragrance as well.
The Purify Mist ($50) is infused with wild sage and cedar essential oils to help boost, cleanse and align the energy of your body or your home. It’s said to give clarity, reduce stress and increase focus and relaxation. This scent is very earthy and won’t appeal to everyone, but I personally love its unique and natural qualities.
The Empower Mist ($50) is crafted with mandarin citrus and basil essential oils to promote energy and strength in yourself or your home. The interesting, fruity-herbal blend delivers a unique aroma, different from anything I’ve smelled before. I especially love spraying this mist in my house to promote sensual energy.
To use the mists as Shashona intended, begin by spraying into your hand (right hand for Purify and left for Empower), then massage into your palms, which represents your heart center. After, apply to all pulse points. You can also spritz and walk into it right after the shower (my favorite way to wear it) or drop it into the bath.
Not only are you doing something good for yourself by purchasing these mists, but also a portion of the proceeds from the Carole Shashona products goes toward charities such as Adopt a Dolphin and Doctors Without Borders. Try for yourself and let us know what you think.
