All About Aromatherapy

by Sylvie Greil

These scrumptious sprays are proof that aromatherapy works—especially on a hectic workday afternoon in the office. Spritz some Energy Mist (with lemon, orange and grapefruit peel) or some Comfort Mist (whose outdoorsy combo of cedar wood, rose wood and spruce needles reminded one editor of summer camp) onto yourself, into the room or over tired friends and colleagues and you get an instant mental pick-me-up. The pure plant essences of these botanical mists make you want to inhale deeply to soak up each delicious scent.


Also available: Soothing Mist (Sleep) with lavender, cedar wood, marjoram and ylang ylang; Love Mist (Passion) with orange zest, ylang ylang, ginger and patchouli; and Mood Mist (Uplift).
