SUBSCRIPTION BOX REVIEW- Honi Essentials- October Essentials box

Our senses do so much for us throughout the day that sometimes we don't even notice how much something like fragrances affect us. Did you know that many scents can actually improve your mood or health?  Essential oils can help you relax, sleep, aid in digestion or improve your skin because these oils have a healing effect on the body as well as the mind and soul. There's very little that an essential oil CAN'T help with! The world of essential oils is so fascinating and I'm glad to explore this more with some oils from Honi Essentials.

If you haven't heard of Honi Essentials, let me tell you how awesome this subscription is if you're looking to build your essential oils collection on the cheap! A huge thanks to the Honi Essentials team for sending me the October Essentials box to review. I got the Frankincense, Sweet Orange and Cassie therapeutic grade oils. Here's a little about each one:

Frankincense- Can be used in baths, and to help minor cuts and bug bites heal more quickly. Frankincense has been used for thousands of years and  can be used for depression, inflammation, immunity, and to increase spiritual awareness.

Sweet Orange- A powerful mood enhancing antioxidant. Can help fight cancerous tumours, increases circulation, kills bacteria, decreases wrinkles as well as eases anxiety. 


Cassia- An anti-diarrhea agent. Cassia oil also improves circulation and relieves menstrual symptoms. It's also a natural bug repellant and astringent.


I loved using these oils in my bath. I tried various combinations of all three oils and I haven't been disappointed yet! My favourite is the Cassia oil because I love the strong cinnamon aroma.  Breathing deeply while in the bath really does relieve the stress of the day and enhances my mood. After soaking in these oils, my skin felt truly refreshed and soft. I love turning my bathroom into my own little spa! You can use these oils in a variety of ways, and for a beginner like me, I'm excited to learn how to use these oils for a better wellbeing.
