A Cozier Space with Neom

Each change of season is a chance for a fresh start. I don’t know about you guys, but when it comes to transitioning into a different weather, I’d always find myself on the hunt to make my little flat a little more relatable for the time-being. It could be a couple of new cushions, art prints or like in today’s case, a lovely scent diffuser. Now as anyone following me on social media would know, I’m huge fan of essential oils. And Neom Organics is one of those brands I’ve been mentioning a lot since discovering them in London. I received their new Wellbeing Pod Diffuser a few weeks back, and it’s been part of my win-down routine since. All that said, I thought it would be nice to dedicate a post to my new love and show you how I use it & style it. Keep scrolling!

在天氣轉換之際,我總喜歡將生活環境重新打理一翻。把該替換的替換,該整理的整理;或是找些裝飾,把公寓佈置的更合時節一點。有時候是新的床組被單,觀望很久的海報或畫作,又或是像近期很著迷香氛產品。上個月,收到 10 10 Hope 的電郵,邀請我體驗的 NEOM Organics 的療癒香氛機的郵件。過去在英國讀書的時候認識了這個品牌,之前也跟大家聊過他們家的產品。NEOM 擅長用精緻的天然香氛讓身為顧客的我們生活過得更加順心。不管是精油、香氛或是蠟燭在我心裡都是品質保證。另外,我也十分欣賞創辦人 Nicola Elliott 與團隊對居家美學的堅持與心態,可想而知對這次的機會,自然是非常感興趣。這幾個星期將它融入自己的 routine 中,就讓我們一起來看看吧。

 

 

 

 

THE DESIGN

What I love about this diffuser is that it’s such a beautiful home decor piece itself. My bedroom has a pretty warm colour palette (being wood, dusty pink and  copper), and the white ceramic design fits in perfectly. If I’m honest, most diffuser I’ve come across does the work, yet doesn’t look that good. And I tend to put them away using it. However, this is not the case here. The wellbeing pod has been a staple on my dressing table and bedside for a while now, and I intend to keep it that way.

 

隨著二十歲進入後半場,對於生活品質的要求也趨於不同。現在的我,比起入手衣服鞋子等等,更傾向於把自己的居家環境打造的舒適些。房子是租來的,生活可不是,一步步慢慢到處搜集,讓自己每天回家看見小公寓都是笑容滿面的。NEOM 的「療癒香氛機」打破了一般我們對於香氛機模樣的既定印象,白色陶瓷外身與金色點綴,很精緻,手感也扎實。沒在用的時候,我也就這麼放著,像個家飾,特別賞心悅目。

 

The Essential Oils

Along with the Wellbeing Pod,  I also received the ‘Wellbeing Essential Oil Blend collection.
It comes with four different essential oils ⏤ sleep, make you happy, boost your energy & destress.

除了香氛機,這次也一併體驗了 NEOM 的療癒香氛組
組合裡共有四款精油:舒緩恬睡、幸福愉悅、皇家奢華以及清新甦活。現在就來跟大家逐一聊聊心得。

 

Sleep
舒緩恬睡

Sleep is my favourite scent from NEOM (I’ve shared my love about their face wash too). I love how calming it is, and for someone who has been struggling with sleeping problems for so long, there is really nothing more I can ask for. I still spend some time tossing and turning around before actually falling asleep, but I don’t wake up in between anymore. It is made of 19 different essential oils, along with lavender, which is known for its soothing effect, literally the perfect ‘sleep’ scent.

舒緩恬睡」,是我最喜歡且熟悉的 NEOM 精油系列,不管是之前介紹過的精露或是卸粧霜,都是梳妝台上的愛牌。裡頭包含了19種精油成分,包含了能調整睡眠品質的薰衣草。做為一個凌晨一點上床,兩三點左右睡著,然後六七點自動醒來的人,對於睡覺這事早已經成半放棄狀態了。不過,這幾週搭配「舒緩恬睡」使用,雖然沒有到沾枕就昏倒那麼誇張,但助眠功力確實不錯。中間不再短短續續起來,然後睡前的醞釀時間也減半,是淺眠與失眠人的救星。

 

Make you happy
幸福愉悅

I use ‘Make you happy‘ as a morning get-ready scent. I normally put it in after waking up, and after I finished my morning shower, the room will smell just right. Its uplifting and yet subtle at the same time. Gives me the perfect mood lift while I put some makeup on.

平日早上整理儀容的時候最愛的香氛。睡醒後點上「幸福愉悅」精油,鋪好床,接著到洗手間梳洗後再回到房間化妝換衣服,這時候香氣的濃郁度正好。成份包含了橙花與含羞草,空氣中充滿了有朝氣的氛圍,有效驅逐負面情緒,替一天的好心情打底。

 

De-Stress
皇家奢華

My ‘writer’s block’ scent. To all you bloggers, writers, content creators or even students writing essays. We’ve all been there, when there’s a deadline in a few days, and yet nothing is sparking up in your mind. Or is it just me? Anyways, whenever I’m in that situation, I bring out the ‘De-Stress‘, it changes my mind set to something less anxious, and it slows my brain down so I have enough time to find the right idea rather than the worrying too much about missing the deadlines.

作為文字與影像工作者,總有那麼一時半刻甚至是幾天覺得所有好的靈感都離自己而去了。其實不一定是要寫文章,任何工作都會有頭腦打結的時候。這時候我回選擇放下手邊的事,把香氛機搬到工作室,然後點上「皇家奢華」精油。這款精油很舒壓,而茉莉花的暖調恰好能調整且安撫我的急性子。畢竟許多時候,遇到瓶頸並不是因為我們沒有靈感,反而是因為我們太急於向前走,而忽略了腦海裡的聲音,這時候正是提醒自己放慢腳步的好時機。

 

Boost Your Energy
清新甦活

Last my not least, the ‘Boost Your Energy scent. Though I don’t use this one as often as the other ones, it doesn’t mean its any less than. It  is my go-to when I’m feeling a little grumpy or tired than my usual self. The relatively stronger lemon scent is the perfect natural mood booster. I aslo love using it during my photoshoots

相比之下,「清新甦活」是我四款裡面較少用到的,他對我來說算是「急救型」的香氛精油。假如有幾天心情煩躁疲憊,就會在香氛機裡倒入它,讓清新的檸檬與羅勒來幫助我提振精神,找回好心情。另外,假如狀況比較嚴重的時候,我也會把精油滴入浴缸,好好泡個澡,利用十到十五分讓自己快速恢復活力。

Useful Tips

1

Fill the water tank of the Wellbeing Pod with cold water
Do not exceed the maximum water level line

香氛機要用冷水使用,然後不要超出內瓶標注的最高水位
加了水後再接著挑選自己喜愛的精油味道滴入

 

2

5-10 drop of essential oil is recommend
but it still depends on your space

官網上與說明說上都建議滴入5-10滴精油
不過還是建議大家可以視自己的空間大小來調整唷

 

3

It comes with a pack of multi use adapters
There’s also a timer with settings for one, two and three hours

NEOM 這次也很貼心地附上了大多數國家的轉換插座,對於旅者來說是一大福音
另外也包含了計時功能,分別為一小時、兩小時到最長的三小時

 

Throughout the years moving from one country to another, this apartment to that, I’d like to think I’m quite the expert on creating a cozy space. Maybe that time when I was 15 after spending a week binge watching Sex & the City, I knew I’ll be wanting to live by myself in my own apartment some day. Somewhere I can feel safe, relaxed and myself every night I get back. Somewhere I can read and enjoy my honey oatmeal each winter morning ⏤ my cozy little corner. All that said, even though I’m still far from getting my own place, I’m still pretty happy with the renting life. Noting feels like home, but this surely is close. And my NEOM diffuser played quite a role in this. x

從離開台灣開始,來到澳洲,接著到英國最後再度回到這裡落腳。一路上換了五間公寓,然後每間在我心裡上都頗具意義。早在學生時期我就知道我是個非常需要個人空間的人,這或許正是為什麼我對於居家環境很堅持。根據不同階段的預算,把當時的環境佈置到最舒適,哪怕得一個個小角落慢慢來,我都願意等。過去,認為「家」的感覺來自於最舒服的家具,而現在的我終於明白除了硬體設備,更重要的是氛圍,而 NEOM 香氛機就是扮演了維持我的墨爾本小公寓氛圍的重要角色。啊,真開心遇見了它。年底到了,拿來送給身邊人也挺合適,這 idea 挺好的,你們說是吧(笑)
