Cozying Up For Fall With Escents

Escents Grace Ceramic Diffuser Energizing Aroma Kit Wellness Roll-On-Kit

While the leaves have not yet started changing colour, fall is just around the corner and it seems it's all everyone is talking about! Funny enough, summer has decided to stay a while longer around here, and despite having pulled out my blankets, thick socks and fluffy slippers just last week, I'm back to wearing shorts and keeping the fans running around the house (and I'm not complaining - summer baby here). To get me in the fall spirit, I recently received a thoughtful care package from Escents, a Canadian aromachology-focused brand based in Vancouver, and have been immersing myself in their wonderful aromatherapy products - along with their Ceramic Grace Aroma Diffuser* and Energizing Aroma Kit*, I also have been enjoying their Wellness Roll-On Kit* and Stress Relief Oolong Tea Blend*.

Escents Grace Ceramic Aroma Diffuser

I have been wanting a diffuser for ages, and was actually looking at some on my recent vacation and told myself I would purchase one when I got back. So when I opened my parcel from Escents and saw this beautiful Grace Ceramic Aroma Diffuser ($56), you can bet your bottom dollar I started doing a little happy dance. What I love so much about it is that it also doubles as a lamp and home decor. The floral cutouts in the ceramic create the perfect dimmed light effect to get you in a relaxed state of mind during the day or help you unwinding at night. All you need to do is add water to the container inside, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil or blend and power it on. It diffuses aroma without heat while still expelling a gentle stream of mist. Not only that, but it also acts as a humidifier by adding moisture to ambient air, while purifying it at the same time by removing fine particles and dust. You can set it to run non-stop for two hours or in intervals for four hours, after which it automatically powers off. I mean, how cool is that?

Escents Energizing Aroma Kit Northern Spring Energy Urban Garden City Lights

Speaking of essential oils, I have been kind of obsessed with the Escents Energizing Aroma Kit. It contains four refreshing blends of 100% pure essential oils which I have been alternating between daily: Northern Spring (bergamot and pine), Energy (orange and lemon), City Lights (litsea cubeba and eucalyptus) and Urban Garden (corn mint and vetiver). They all smell so lovely and different that it's hard to pick a favourite! I've also been adding pure lavender, eucalyptus, tea trea and peppermint oil to my diffuser, which have calming and detoxifying properties.

Escents Grace Wellness Roll-On-Kit Digest Aid Stress Relief Head Aid

Escents also offers aromatherapy products for topical use, such as their Wellness Roll-On Kit ($39). Housed in a handy, travel-friendly carrying case, this set will come to your aid in times of discomfort. Head Aid, containing peppermint and lavender, has already come in handy a few times when suffering from a headache, which I sometimes get from screen fatigue. I apply a small amount of product directly on my temples and neck, and it has worked miracles each time, leaving a cooling sensation and riding me of my pain within 15-20 minutes following application. To calm my stomach, I have been using Digest Aid which is made with fennel and ginger. I roll the blend directly on my stomach but you can also apply some on the bottoms of your feet to combat indigestion. Finally, Stress Relief has been a blessing when I have been feeling anxious or overwhelmed, thanks to its neroli and bergamot blend. I roll some on my wrists and neck, and take long deep breaths to inhale the scent in, and it truly works! Within minutes my head feels lighter and clearer, it's actually amazing.

Escents Stress Relief Tea Kitten and the Bear Signature Preserves Anthropologie Gilded Shapes Monogram Mug Indigo Herringbone Picnic Throw

Not only was I treated to wonderful oil blends, but I also received a few other goodies to put me in a fall mood.

Escents Stress Relief Organic Tea Anthropologie Gilded Shapes Monogram Mug

To go along with this adorable Anthropologie Gilded Shapes Monogram Mug* made of ceramic and featuring gold decal, I received the Escents Stress Relief Organic Tea ($13). This Oolong blend contains reishi mushrooms and star anise which are packed with antioxidants and micronutrients and are said to boost immunity and calm the mind. The tea comes in loose form, and you will have to steep 1 scoop for 1-2 minutes in 80 degree water for best results. The rich scent puts me in a relaxed state of mind almost immediately, and is the perfect drink to decompress after a long day.

Kitten and the Bear Signature Preserves

The foodie in me was so excited to also discover the Signature Preserves Tasting Box ($28)* from Kitten and the Bear which I was kindly gifted and which contains three of their best-selling flavours: Banana, Bourbon & Vanilla Bean; Blackberry, Plum & Violet; and Strawberry, Raspberry & Cream. All of the preserves of this Toronto-based brand are handcrafted in small batches in their atelier and these particular ones are vegan too. I was informed that they even use Lantic sugar (their refinery is based not too far from me in Montreal) which is free of animal byproducts of any kind. Kitten and the Bear do not add any butter or oils to their preserves - they are made with only fruit (local when possible), as well as sugar and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Trust me when I say that these flavours are absolutely exquisite, some of the best jams I have ever tried.

Indigo Herringbone Picnic Throw

To stay extra warm and toasty these fall months, I will be getting a lot of use out of this Herringbone Woven Throw* from Indigo. Made with 100% cotton and featuring blue and white stripes as well as soft white fringe, I know I will be spending many hours wrapped in this blanket while reading a book or working away on my blog.

How will you be staying nice and cozy this fall?

  3. You got some cool stuff there! I especially like the idea of a diffuser for the fall/winter season.. The humidifier and air purifier would be really useful for us as we're prone to stuffy noses in the winter.

  34. I usually don't love fall scents (like pumpkin), but that stress relief oil looks amazing. I do love apple pie, so I guess that's fall-esque. :) We don't usually get into fall-mode until November. It's still 100+ here in Arizona. :)
