What Products Do We Recommend for Stress Relief?
We formulate our products with essential and nature-derived ingredients only to avoid using unnecessary and harsh content. Some of our bestselling products are the following:
This product contains fragrant damask roses sourced from Europe and grown only in Bulgaria, Morocco, and Turkey. Damask rose oil may help hydrate and soothe your skin and refresh your hair.
Studies show that, aside from having a perfuming effect, damask roses may have soothing, refreshing, and relaxant properties.
Rosewater Refresh Facial Mist also contains our signature Vor-Mag water, vortexed and magnetized to mimic water’s journey in nature and help enhance the benefits of aromatherapy.
This misting spray is a smokeless alternative to aromatherapy sticks traditionally used to purify an area.
Aura Smudge ingredients include our signature Vor-Mag water and Dalmatian sage for meditation and energy cleansing. You can use this product to mist your home before meditative practice or yoga.
This product has a unique formulation allowing easy absorption into your body. Aura Glow massage oils combine the benefits of vitamin E, almonds, and other softening oils to help make your skin supple and soft.
Meanwhile, vitamin E has antioxidant properties and may enhance moisturization to benefit people with dry, flaky skin.
This whipped eye gel cream is formulated to help hydrate and illuminate your eye area to obscure dark circles and give your skin a plumper, firmer appearance. Consider using this product to help brighten your eyes if you have dark circles after a stressful night’s sleep.
Aura Glow Eye Cream contains Vor-Mag water, natural mineral pigments, bakuchiol, silk tree extract, and kelp extract.
Bakuchiol appears to stimulate your skin’s collagen-producing receptors and may have the potential to fight skin aging. Collagen accounts for 30% of your body’s protein and is the building block of your skin, muscles, and bones.
Silk tree extract helps reduce dark circles and fine lines on the skin.
