Give the gift of calm this Christmas with Aromadough

The holiday season is a time for joy but it’s also one of the busiest and most stressful. How on earth are you going to keep the kids busy while they’re out of school? Can you really handle miserable Aunt Carol in your house for an entire long weekend? And what on earth are you going to do about last minute gifts and stocking fillers?

Fortunately, when it comes to presents that are truly appreciated, nothing beats Aromadough, the 100-percent natural aromatherapy-infused stress ball.

Merry and bright

A merry little dough ball made using hydrating ingredients like cocoa butter and coconut oil, gently kneading Aromadough does a great job of moisturising your hands while alleviating tension. Better yet, as each ball is infused with soothing or uplifting essential oils that are absorbed systemically, they help create a welcome moment of calm in what can be a time of tinsel-bedecked anxiety.

The Christmas crew

This season you could easily gift those you love (including yourself!) with any of our Aromadough tubs, but we’ve also created two limited-edition Christmas trios that can be given as a ‘spoilicious’ pamper pack or easily broken up into individual units to fill stockings.

The red collection includes the following:

· DeStress – Vanilla, cedarwood, neroli and lavender

· Calm – Lavender, lemongrass and neroli

· Relax – Sweet orange, cinnamon and clove

The more traditional gold and silver collection consists of:

· Peace – Lavender, lemongrass and neroli

· Love – Sweet orange, patchouli and clary sage

· Joy – Lemon, lime and lavender

These balls of Christmas joy, and many other variants, are available at a recommended retail price of R75 per unit or R199 for a 3-pack. Go to www.aromadough.co.za to purchase or locate your nearest stockist.

If you’re wanting to give a Christmas gift that’s mindful and indulgent then Aromadough is the perfect spoil that’s sure to be appreciated by all. (Except maybe dear Aunt Carol, but only because that Grinch hates everything.)
