Survival Products: My Collection

Owens Acres Energizing Aromatherapeutic Scent

There’s some things I don’t leave the house with, especially when I have to make the 40 mile trek into work.  Some are obvious:  coffee (to drink for the trip), my purse, etc…but when you dig into my purse there are absolute must have products that I reach for over the course of my work day.

My purse is a bulging mess, and believe me when I say I try to downsize as much as I can but the same products remain.  I cannot leave the house without them:

1.  Owens Acres Headache Balm:  I think the name of the product says it all.  Comes in a twist up tube in two sizes, .15 oz. and .50 oz.  Think tube of lip balm.  Anyway, its a lovely balm with Lavender and Peppermint, great for those tense necks and pounding temples.  As well, a quick swipe beneath the nose opens up those pesky sinuses.  I order them two at a time, one to keep at home and the other for my purse.

2.  Owens Acres Lavender Lotion Bar:  Comes in 2oz or 4 oz tins, I keep the 2 oz in my purse.  Great for dry hands (and I HATE dry hands) and the Lavender is potent enough for a relaxing escape, no matter how brief.

3. Owens Acres Arnica Warm Roll On:  I have bone spurs in my neck and they are aggravated by cold weather.  When my neck hurts boy does it hurt a sickly, throbbing hurt.  The Arnica Warm really helps with the pain. I apply and wrap my neck in a scarf.

4.  Energizing Perfume Roll On:  Is a great pick me up for those work blahs.  Smells like Lime Lifesavers, it really does.

5.  Starbucks VIA:  For when Starbucks is closed and I need coffee.  The swill that’s in the work lunchroom can take the caulking off a bathtub *shudders*

6.  Tea:  when I feel chilly, which makes me miserable.  Sometimes all I need is a hot cup of tea to warm me up and lift my spirits.

7.  Owens Acres Lip Balms (bottom of page):  I keep Peach and Peppermint with me.  No color, just serious, natural moisture.  Laura just came out with Cinnamon and Pomegranate as well.

8. Owens Acres Aroma Inhaler in “Anxiety”:  yeah.

 

So there you have it.  I need a bigger purse.

    The item 1, I have something similar by Erzulie Cosmetics. I use under the eye area and under my nostrils, as I’m very allergic and my nose hair air blocked all the time.
    Ant item 6, I love tea too. I’m a tea addicted. I love to buy different flavors and I drink a cup almost everytime before bed.

  2. How does the headache balm work? Does it actually relieve pain? Unfortunately, I suffer from frequent headaches and very rarely find anything that will alleviate the pain. I prefer more natural solutions to pain relief, though, so if you really like it I just might have to try it!

    Hi, Laura Owens from Owens Acres. The Headache Balm works just like a lotion, it it absorbed into the skin and the peppermint relieves the pulsing and pounding when applied directly. Secondly anything you put on your skin is absorbed into the blood stream – hence why you want natural or organic products. Peppermint relaxes blood vessels and airways and has a natural cooling affect.

    Want to test this theory? Rub a drop of Peppermint Essential oil on the top of your foot. In a couple of minutes you will taste it in your mouth!

    Peppermint inhaled will also help a headache or nausea/vomiting.

    Hope the info is helpful.
