A lavender free alternative for relaxation
When we think of being in a state of zen, the idea of being in clarity and having the world move around us without affecting us comes to mind. An ideology stemming from Chinese Buddhism, this common term across the globe originates from the words ‘mushin no shin’; an expression describing the mind with no mind or a state of ‘no-mindedness’. Simply describing being in a place of calm without the occupation of busy thoughts or emotion, allowing a greater ability to be open to everything.

With Sleepy head's popularity for their ability to create a personal space of serenity instantly and aid sleep, it was only fitting to develop the Zen Room & Pillow Spray for the ultimate aromatherapy benefits. Here's the essential oils our latest room mists contains and why:
Used frequently before interviews, exams or any of those bigger one-off opportunities to help tame the feeling of frantic and chaotic, mandarin oil unlike any other has the ability to bring calm whilst keeping the uplifting feeling and excited optimism underlying. It takes off the uncomfortable nerves without stripping the good of a situation. This can gently cure a knot in the stomach whilst helping to keep you in your own power.

Another oil working on the principle of unknotting the stomach of it’s tight and sometimes nauseous feelings that the antonyms to calm bring, cardamom also is key to the zen feeling. It coordinates the openness that must be involved to reach this state and the clarity that is sought after is nurtured by it’s warm, homely and soothing notes.
Balancing the calm with the uplifting nature of mandarin, bergamot follows suit. Set aside from other citrus scents, the Italians have been using it to reduce feelings of anxiety for centuries.
Opposing its citrus family, the sweet oil produced relieves tension to elevate this mist and bring the necessary unwinding and refreshing sensibility.
We’re looking to achieve a sense of calm with openness and transparency to feel zen, so sandalwood couldn’t be missed.
