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。
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.
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。
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
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.
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.
Boost Your Energy
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
Fill the water tank of the Wellbeing Pod with cold water
Do not exceed the maximum water level line
5-10 drop of essential oil is recommend
but it still depends on your space
It comes with a pack of multi use adapters
There’s also a timer with settings for one, two and three hours
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）
