If you know me, you would know that I am always on the hunt for products to help with my anxiety. Products that will help me calm down in times of distress. Products that will help slow my mind down enough for me to have a good sleep.
While I have managed to find a number of creams and soaps to help with this, I have recently been on the hunt for something light that I can take with me on the go.
While I was on the hunt, Zenkle came into the picture. Zenkle is a Singapore based company which primarily sells self-care items. Their products include things like candles, tea, soaps or loofas. All the things one might need to have a relaxing night.
But recently, Zenkle has come up with two specific house made products to help calm people down. They have a stress-free roll on for daytime, on the go relief and a pillow mist for you to spritz over your bedding to help you drift to sleep.
So I have both products and I’m super excited to tell you how I feel about the, because they have honestly been a game changer for me.
Zen Day Stress-free Roll-on (S$15)
Living in Singapore can be super stressful and there are so many times that I just feel myself getting very worked up or getting a migraine just because I’m stressed.
Now usually I would pop in a painkiller to kill the headache and just move on but I quickly started to realise that my Zen Day Stress-free Roll-on was doing just as good a job, if not better.
This little bottle is super convenient to carry around because you can just throw it into your bag and use it whenever you need a little boost of calm.
No initially I was worried that the smell would affect my friends or people around me especially because we all know how awful it can be when someone breaks out medicated oil in the middle of class. But I didn’t have to worry at all.
The roll-on contains and aromatic blend of lavender, lemongrass, and bergamot which smell incredible and honestly don’t cause any discomfort to anyone around you. I mean it smells amazing so I don’t see why it should amiright?
In fact, a number of my friends asked to see the bottle when they saw me using it or commented on the lovely scent which was really nice.
The lemongrass in this roll-on is the most overpowering scent here so if you like lemongrass, you’ll love the smell. It’s also just a very refreshing scent which is perfect for a daytime calming solution.
Zen Night Pillow Mist (S$18)
When I was very young, my parents used to have this little capsule of essential oils for babies that they would spread over my pillows and bedding and it was so incredible because it smelled divine and it would help me sleep instantly.
This little capsule thing has now been discontinued now (much to my dismay) and for a while now, I’ve been trying to find something similar to it to replace it. So you can imagine my excitement for this pretty little pillow mist.
So first of all, can we just talk about how pretty this little bottle is? It’s so pretty and convenient. You can literally bring it around everywhere and even if you don’t, it just looks so cute on your bedside table. I can’t even deal.
So let’s talk about what’s inside. The Zenkle pillow mist is made out of a 100% natural, aromatherapeutic blend of lavender, vetivert and chamomile though I would say the lavender comes out the strongest here. This is perfect for me personally because I love lavender and it is one of those scents that can just knock me out.
I’ve been reaching for it daily since receiving it. Honestly all you need is two to three sprits on your pillow and you’re good.
It dries quite fast too so you don’t have to sit around waiting for too long. Usually I’ll spray it on and then do the final step in my skincare routine and by the time I’m done, my bed is all ready for me to sleep on.
You’re probably wondering how well it works in lulling you to sleep though which is obviously the most important part of the product and I’m here to tell you that it works wonders! I am a notoriously bad sleeper. I can never sleep deeply enough and I wake up quite often or toss and turn for ages. However, with this product, I find that I am sleeping so much better and most importantly, faster.
I toss and turn a lot less now which really reduces a lot of anxiety. I mean I’m sure you know that its very stressful when you’re struggling to sleep and you have an early morning the next day or an important one. So reducing the time needed to sleep is very important.
Probably my only gripe with the product is that the smell doesn’t last all night and so you only really get the effects as you’re drifting off and of you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t go back to sleep, you’ll probably have to re-spray.
But that’s a minor problem because there are very few products in the world that have scents that can actually stick for an extended period of time.
Overall, I’m super happy with the new Zenkle range. I mean they work really well, they smell amazing and the best part is that they are free from all the gross stuff you don’t want on your skin such as parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances and artificial colors. Plus they are cruelty-free! Literally it doesn’t get better then this.
So pop on over to Zenkle and order your roll-on and spray to enjoy stress-free days and well-rested nights.
