To balance the body, mind, and spirit, Altar carries an abundant assortment of oils, mists and other natural body care products by many different local brands. One of the brands focuses on the combination of all three of these human elements to achieve an aspirational “state of wellness.” Truthful to its claim, State of Wellness Massage, is a Northwest company that specializes in massage therapy at their brick-and-mortar location. With their team of trained therapists, this company sells wonderful body products that have several different uses to ease the human existence.
Now, let me ask you, DO YOU LIKE OILS?! I LOVE OILS. OILS MAKE ME FEEL BETTER ABOUT MYSELF. DO YOU WANT TO FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELF? I THINK YOU DO BECAUSE SUCH A QUESTION, ONLY HAS ONE MINDLESS ANSWER. AND THAT ANSWER IS YES. WHY YOU MAY ASK? BECAUSE THESE OILS MAY HELP CERTAIN AILMENTS. AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT’S EVEN BETTER? THEY SMELL AMAZING. SO WHO DOESN’T WANT TO BE COMFORTABLE AND DELICIOUS SMELLING? WHO DOESN’T WANT HAPPINESS?
There are four different oil blends from State of Wellness available currently in our shop. These include the Anxiety Aromatherapy Oil, the Bitch Aromatherapy Oil, the Headache Aromatherapy Oil, and the Sleep Aromatherapy Oil. Pretty self explanatory; each of these oils are made with therapeutic grade essential oils, targeted to ease their labeled intentions.
As the Bitch Aromatherapy Oil maybe less self-explanatory than the others, I’ll give some in depth. This oil aims to relieve symptoms of PMS, cramps, and overall attitude. Just take the rollerball oil stick, and freely apply it to the lower abdomen, wrists, behind the ears, temples, or back of the neck. My personal favorite is to take the Anxiety oil stick in the morning, apply it to the back of my ears, and massage it in, to relieve any puffiness I may have in my face during the waking hours.
Other than oils, State of Wellness also makes body mists and sprays. These include the Solstice Transformation Aromatherapy Spray, the Supermoon Aphrodisiac Aromatherapy Spray, and the Eclipse Protective Aromatherapy Spray. The Solstice Transformation blend aims to aid the body and mind during stressful times of change and transition, to accept new beginnings and endings. The Eclipse Protective blend aims to uplift the mood both physically and emotionally, creating a shield of grounded strength with warm and spicy notes of tea tree oils, frankincense, grapefruit, and clove. However, my personal favorite is the Supermoon Aphrodisiac blend. I am obsessed with how this body mist smells. It smells like the ripest fruit in the world, completely alien and comforting at the same time, this body spray completely seduces and entices those around you. Made with lavender, Hawaiian sandalwood, tangerine peel, ylang ylang, osmanthus flower, lemon myrtle, clary sage and vetiver, I spray this body mist on me constantly. It improves your overall mood, refreshes the skin, and relaxes the body.
So, if you’re into natural apothecary, potions of sorts, and massage oils, you will definitely want to explore State of Wellness. From personal experience, I can say that these concoctions definitely work and will leave you feeling incredibly satisfied.
