10 Mindfulness Gifts For Any Time Of Year
Using natural wellness products to support your mental and emotional health
MINDFULNESS GIFTS CAN SUPPORT YOUR WELLNESS ANYTIME
With the holiday season freshly behind us, starting a new year is often met with mixed reviews. Though it is the intention of most of us to begin anew with a fresh start and a new set of goals and aspirations, the “new year, new me” philosophy can leave some feeling stressed and ill prepared.
What’s so wonderful about the practice of mindfulness is that it can be done anytime, anywhere. Mindfulness is vast and broad and means many things to many people; there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to practice and part of the beauty is in the exploration of what makes you feel grounded, connected and mindful of your present circumstances.
In support of your hopes and dreams for 2022 and beyond, we’re sharing 10 of the products we reach for in desire of mindfulness, gratitude and true happiness.
MINDFULNESS GIFTS TO SUPPORT IN EASING YOUR STRESS
Regardless of the time of year, we know that being in a continual state of stress isn’t healthy for our body and our mind. Stress can create obstacles and barriers to mindfulness, which is why we think it’s so important to be aware of what causes stress for you and to adopt practices and rituals that allow you to move from a state of stress to a state of bliss more often.
Products we suggest in support of the relief from stress:
Stress Release roll-on: one of the best-selling products we offer at Saje, this roll-on product is designed for quick, discreet use whenever stress strikes. It’s been blended with essential oils that are known to help encourage peacefulness and calm in the body and mind like lavender, the most well-known of all essential oils that most people find soothing, orange to support cheerfulness and a lift when needed and clary sage, a powerful euphoric that can help bring stillness to a busy mind.
Unwind diffuser blend: a blend we love to diffuse that refreshes our air and helps invite stillness is our soothing and harmonizing Unwind. Bergamot, a citrusy uplifter is blended with balancing and stabilizing geranium and a hint of warm, spicy cinnamon that feels just like a hug from an old friend. Try adding 5-10 drops to a diffuser of your choice and breathe deeply to feel at ease.
MINDFULNESS GIFTS TO SUPPORT IN HELPING YOU RELAX AT BEDTIME
Many people report that what causes them difficulty when it comes to their sleep routine is that they struggle to fall asleep, or wake frequently throughout the night, often due to racing thoughts or nervous chatter that have them worrying about what the next day will bring.
Creating a thoughtful and intentional nighttime routine is one of the ways you can practice mindfulness and help set the tone for the rest and relaxation you need to feel your best and perform optimally each day.
Products we suggest in support of drifting off to dreamland:
Sleep Well roll-on: our community has made Sleep Well a best-seller for us for many, many years because of the powerful yet grounding effects it can have on our bodies and minds at nighttime. Blended with ingredients known to have an impact on our body’s ability to find rest, like calming and relaxing valerian root, sweet and soothing roman chamomile, supportive and balancing neroli and floral and peaceful lavender, we suggest rolling along the throat, wrists, temples and pulse points as needed at nighttime.
Tranquility diffuser blend: a blend we’re fond of to support our nighttime wind down routine is Tranquility. Diffusing 5-10 drops in your bedroom at night helps create an oasis of calm, which can encourage your mind and body to feel relaxed and able to fall asleep easily. This is a formula of orange, lavender, marjoram, ylang ylang and roman chamomile, a sweet, floral and herbal bouquet of scents to encourage peace and calm.
MINDFULNESS GIFTS TO SUPPORT YOUR MOVEMENT PRACTICES
One of our favorite ways to feel present and in connection with ourselves is through movement. Movement is personal to each of us and while some people feel exhilarated by running or weightlifting, others feel most in tune when on the yoga mat or in deep, slow breathing exercises. Movement is an excellent way to encourage mindfulness and foster a sense of relationship between the mind and body each day.
Products we suggest to complement your daily movement:
Muscle Melt body butter: melt into this rich, nourishing body butter that was formulated to provide deep hydration with skin-supportive base ingredients like mango seed butter, cocoa seed butter and shea butter alongside decompressing and comforting essential oils of sweet birch, rosemary, eucalyptus and marjoram. Apply liberally to the body and massage into tense areas as needed.
Extra Strength roll-on: our largest roll-on formula has been created extra-large for extra strength relief of soreness, aches, strains and sprains in the body. We’ve blended warming and cooling essential oils like rosemary, sweet birch, clove and peppermint to help the body feel relief from tension and tightness and to help you keep moving. Our top tip is to apply to areas like the knees and shoulders before a workout to feel eased and relaxed.
MINDFULNESS GIFTS TO SUPPORT YOUR BATH TIME ROUTINE
There isn’t much that can replace the good old-fashioned bath. A bath is a warming, sensory-immersive experience that when properly curated can do a world of good for both the body (hydration, skin softening) and the mind (relaxation, de-stressing). Using high-quality, concentrated bath salts means a little goes a long way towards setting you up for a mindful and intentional self-care ritual.
Products we suggest to support your best bath, ever:
Sleep Well bath salts: wind down before bed with this restful bath blend, made from skin-smoothing sea and epsom salts, designed to help deeply relax and ground the body. Our essential oil blend includes calming, relieving and soothing valerian root, lavender, mandarin and vetiver to help prep you for sleep. Add 2-5 tablespoons of salt to your bath as desired and soak up to 30 minutes for maximum effect.
Stress Release bath salts: taking a bath in general can be a meditative experience that helps to relieve daily worries and stresses, which is why we suggest these harmonizing and balancing salts to enhance your ritual. We’ve blended lavender, roman chamomile, vetiver and clary sage to help uplift and relax the body from head to toe.
MINDFULNESS GIFTS TO ENCOURAGE OVERALL WELLNESS FROM HEAD TO TOE
The final two products we’re writing about today to support mindfulness and intentionality are well-loved by our community as they were designed to support you in feeling optimally both at home and on the go. Scent is a powerful, personal experience and whether you’re experiencing it aromatically through a diffuser or topically through a roll-on, certain essential oils are ideal in bringing your body and mind into harmony.
Products we suggest for the home and body:
Aroma Om diffuser: our community loves this stylish diffuser in classic white ceramic because not only does it produce fragrant mist from 100% natural essential oils, it also looks like a piece of décor when placed in the home. This diffuser offers a continuous run time of three hours, an intermittent run time of six hours and an optional LED light feature so you can personalize your experience with it.
Pocket Farmacy Mindful Edition: our best-selling kit for mindfulness on the go, this convenient carrying case contains five of our most impactful roll-ons for wellness support. We’ve created blends to support inner reflection, protecting your energy, helping you to unwind, focusing on building confidence and cultivating connection. These 100% natural blends can be applied to areas like the temples, wrists, all pulse points and the elbow creases, and may also be inhaled from the bottle when the need arises to invite peace and calm.
