Still Mist – Why we love it.

 

Why & How We Created Our STILL Face & Body Mist

STILL is our ode to modern meditation.  It was designed to help establish a meditation practice through the use of scent association which is the technique of pairing a specific habit or ritual with a scent. This repetition of scent helps cue the brain to achieve a certain state when it experiences a specific scent.  Thus having a scent that you meditate with could help cue the brain and body to get into a relaxed state even if you don’t have time to do a full meditation.  Regardless of how or why you use the STILL blend, it has provided stillness and a 10 second escape for our customers, community, (and our own office) when the craziness of the day gets to you and you just need a reminder to breathe for a few moments. It really does smell and feel like a meditation class and spa in a bottle.  


Why We Made This Product 

We made our STILL blend during our first collection of Vitruvi products, and the blend itself was completely an accident. We started with  the intention to create a product to help people calm down and we became inspired by Ayurvedic medicine. Inspired by the chakras we blended  7 essential oils that are associated to each of the 7 chakras and what  resulted was an incredibly dynamic and well rounded balanced aroma that is both grounding and uplifting. It gives a beautiful reminder to find some stillness for yourself throughout the day.

Essential Oils Used In STILL 

STILL is made with a unique blend of essential oils including  Vetiver, Clary Sage, Egyptian Geranium, Rose, Mandarin, and Frankincense.  

 

How To Use STILL

  • Close eyes and mist 3-4 times 6 inches away from your face and neck and breathe deeply into the surrounding aroma
  • Allow the fine mist to sink into the skin and surrounding air
  • Breathe deeply
  • Mist your face & body before meditation, yoga practice or throughout your day as a reminder to take a moment for you.

How Our Team Uses STILL

 

Still mist is my favourite blend for sure- I have it in my bag at all times. Any time I’m feel stressed or feeling stressed or anxious I mist around my face and take a deep breathe. It makes me stop and take a moment for myself – I instantly feel more relaxed. 

-Kirby,  Director of Marketing

STILL is my go-to scent for whenever I’m feeling like I need to pause and de-stress. I carry the mist around with me wherever I go!

I created VITRUVI with my brother Sean and for the past three years we've spent a significant portion of everyday surrounded by things that smell pretty awesome. Most of my posts are written late in the evening from my bathtub after working long hours with the crazy awesome team at VITRUVI. Also... you can always find Geranium essential oil and Balance Roll on in my bag :)
