Tazeka Aromatherapy: Roll-on Wisdom, Motivation and Companionship
A wise woman, a travel companion and motivation:
Don’t leave home without them.
When I travel, I like to venture into the world armed with light and convenient go-to products. More than just travel-sized beauty products or handy tech gadgets, my go-tos become slices of heaven that transform me from crazed, wild world traveler in need of creature comfort into a bonafide Super Tripper. I’m a fan of all that makes me sane, centered, less stinky and not-so jet-lagged.
My wild-crazy comes on fast and furious at random points along the journey, be it on a long day of trekking, flying around the world, or even in a strange not-quite-hot, not-quite-cold, kinda-funky, barely-functioning shower. So I like my little-slices-of-heaven to be a lot like my man––fun, reliable, easy to find and responsive.
There’s nothing like reaching for exactly what I need and holding it in my hand. Like a tube of hand lotion when I could swear my skin turned to sandpaper. Or ear plugs I stashed in case I end up in a teepee with a strange snorer.
But what if I need an emotion? Could it be as easy as reaching for and rolling the right one on? Absolutely. Incredibly packable, fabulously organic Tazeka Aromatherapy roll-on oils to the rescue!
Now GirlTrippers everywhere can roll on wisdom, companionship, and even motivation. No, it’s not magic.
So there I was, heading into the Brioche Doree at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. I’d been flying long enough to need a change of underwear when my new best friend decided to sit down in the seat next to me and asked why a beautiful girl like me was all alone.
That’s when I corrected him. I told him I have a Travel Companion, reached into my bag and slathered it on. The scent of ginger helped me overcome my nausea at his awful pickup-line. He slithered away at my equally awful joke.
“Travel Companion supports a steady stomach, and gives you an extra layer of protection when in close company with other travelers.”
It was the perfect traveling companion––ready to go, and made me laugh. Perfect for motion-sickness and hookup-sickness too. My queasy stomach eased long enough for me to order a cheeseburger with fries, because let’s face it, when you’ve been out in the world long enough nothing, I mean nothing, tastes better than one of those. Problem. Solved. Travel Companion also has immune-enhancing properties from corn mint oil. Finally, no need to worry when sitting next to Mr. and Mrs. Coughs-a-lot and their three kids.
“Wise Woman is your guide through transformation. Roll it on, raise your glass, and toast your wild, wise femininity!”
And what world traveler doesn’t need to channel her inner wise woman. Wouldn’t it be great to unzip your backpack and roll on a little wisdom when you’ve been hiking in the wrong direction…for days. When decisions swirl and threaten to overpower you, whip our your Wise Woman. It’s centering, calming scents of wildflowers and spices will give you a break from confusion and snap you out of fear or anxiety. Just inhale. The oil is great for chasing away hot flashes, balances hormones, and keeps you sharp enough to meet stress head on––be it on the outback or in an Outback on carpool duty.
“Motivation stirs up stalled energy so you can regain your vitality and get the energy to accomplish your dreams.”
Lacking motivation to leave the tent on a snowy or rainy morning to hit the summit before dark? Not quite a case of do-or-die would allow me to hang in the tent, freezing, but in relative comfort compared to striking camp and setting up again.
My rationalizations begin. So I don’t make it this year. Oh, well. But what I need help to remember is that life is short. I might not be here next year. So, I dig deep. Deep into why I came to the mountain in the first place. To this place. At this time. I pull out a little motivation and roll it on.
Lime essential oil liberates my energy, conquers my inner sloth and dissolves the power my rationalizations have over me. The oil even has a splash of thyme, the herb Roman soldiers used to bathe in before battle.
This shit works. It will kick your butt so hard, you’ll start chipping away at every excuse standing in the way of discovering a few new dreams. From sloth to Roman soldier to Super GirlTripper, there’s nothing to stop us now.
