"Oh My God, I Need This!"

Stress-Be-Gone soap with lavender and calendula petals
That's usually the first thing a customer says when they pick up Blissology's Stress-Be-Gone soap.  We all laugh and I usually say something about how everyone could probably use a little Stress-Be-Gone in their life or about how the world would be a happier place if everyone had that soap.  We might both be mostly joking, but really, it's all true!  That customer probably does need less stress and the essential oils we use in our Stress-Be-Gone blend really do help.

Each of the essential oils in this blend are recommended by aromatherapists to calm, relieve stress, or boost mood.  Some are even touted to have antidepressant and energizing qualities, further stimulating those "good mood" vibes.  We see this right before our eyes when that customer then smells the soap they just proclaimed they needed.  They close their eyes, take a deep drag of the scent, and then exhale, dropping their shoulders and sighing.  Just that one sniff has made them feel better.

Rosemary and Eucalyptus essential oils alone can smell a little sharp and medicinal. Even lavender, the oil people most often associate with relaxation, can be a little much.  But when combined with sweet orange, peppermint, and spearmint oils, a wonderful balance is achieved.  The Stress-Be-Gone blend then becomes this intricate but somehow familiar fragrance that is both soothing and invigorating.

The current best-selling item on thescienceofbliss.com is Stress-Be-Gone soap.  However, we use the same blend in a massage oil, salt scrub, massage candle, and a hard lotion bar

You "Need This!"  Really, who doesn't need a little stress-be-gone?
