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!
