Product Review: Danarra Aromatherapy Oil

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

     Stress is already a part of us. It is inevitable but we can manage it in different ways. Let's take for example the Filipino workers with 9-6 pm jobs. Their day begins with an average of two-hour commute to the office and another two-hour commute to get home. Can you see the picture? Days begin with stress and ends with stress!

     I'm a stay at home mom and I'm experiencing stress too! From daily routine house chores to parenting and daughter duties, I experience stress every day. To keep me sane, I look for ways on how to cope and manage it. Some people enjoy a nice dessert, go for a workout, watch a movie, or spend time with friends and family. These are effective but not accessible immediately, right? There's one thing that young professionals including me have in our bags or pockets- a soothing balm that comes in many forms. The trending now- aromatherapy oil!

Product Review: Danarra Aromatherapy Oil

     I'm one of the many Filipinos who finds comfort in soothing balms. It's my quick relief from a headache and nausea. Some use it to comfort sore muscles, stiffness, bruising, or sprains and strains. While some still resort to medication, others continue the tradition of using soothing balms that have been passed on to generations. Camphor or menthol is the comment scent used in balms as it gives relaxation to users but there are many users who would wish for smells that aren’t as overbearing.

     This dilemma is what gave birth to Danarra Aromatherapy Oil! The name Danarra is derived from the word “Nadarra,” which, in the Scottish Gaelic vocabulary means “natural.” Celtic knots were chosen to become its symbol because Danarra and the Celtic knots connote interconnectedness between a person and nature.
