The Relax Essential Oil Blend from Mia Mariu is one of the best smelling scents I have ever come across. I love it.
Since it is specially blended to aid relaxation it is great for using in the bedroom. It can help make drifting off to sleep much easier, and lots more pleasant. It is recommended to put some on your wrists, temples, or the back of your neck and massage it in. It can be used in a diffuser or on a cotton ball for aromatherapy too.
The ingredients in the oil are all really nice smelling on their own. Those ingredients include:
Lavender – has been cherished for its unmistakable aroma and therapeutic properties for thousands of years. It is widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities and helps ease muscle tension in the head and neck.
Sandalwood – found only in Hawaii and it delivers a variety of benefits. It promotes healthy & smooth skin, reduces the appearance of scars and blemishes, enhances mood and promotes sleep and frequently used in meditation for its grounding and uplifting properties.
Cedarwood – Known for promoting healthy skin and clear breathing, Cedarwood has a warm, woody, balsamic fragrance that relaxes the mind and body and is perfect for massage therapy.
Clary Sage – known for its mood-lightening properties and ability to ease monthly menstrual cycles. It has a warm, herbal scent that is uplifting and relaxing, making it a perfect choice for supporting a normal, healthy attitude during PMS.
As well as some of the ingredients that are in their other essential oil blend:
Sweet Almond Oil – known to be high in moisturizing fatty acids (Omega 6 and Omega 9), excellent emollient high in oleic and linoleic, ideal in the treatment of dry skin, helps skin balance loss and absorption of moisture providing a smooth skin feel. It is antioxidant rich, high in Vitamin E, fat and protein content along with containing many essential nutrients.
Apricot Oil -Similar soothing properties as almond oil. Apricot oil is a favorite oil for mothers and babies because of its ability to soothe chaffed skin gently. It is quickly absorbed into the skin; it is often used as massage oil to deliver benefits such as reducing stress, pain and inflammation and instilling an overall sense of well-being. Apricot kernel oil is also very mild and non-irritating, making it suitable for children and infant massage. It is cold-pressed from the dried seeds of the fruit of the apricot tree. This natural oil is light-colored and fragrant, imparting a somewhat nutty aroma.
Grapeseed Oil – used as a base oil for many creams and lotions. It is the preferred carrier oils for many massage therapists because of its light, satin like finish. It also has some astringent qualities and is good for oily, acne prone skin.

Rosehip Oil – extremely high in essential fatty acids and is known to help treat dry, irritated, weathered skin. It is also suitable for treating burns, scars and stretch marks.
Macadamia Oil – in addition to its moisturizing benefit, it is a nutrient-dense oil which is packed with antioxidants and essential fatty acids that protect your skin and helps promote healing process after a sunburn or other types of skin damage. As an added bonus, Macadamia oil mimics your skin’s natural oils, making it an ideal match for maintaining your glow.
Coconut Oil – an excellent massage oil for the skin as well as it acts as an effective moisturizer on all types of skin. It is a safe solution for preventing dryness and flaking of the skin, delays the appearance of wrinkles and sagging of the skin.
One of the things I really like about this essential oil is that it is made with 100% organic essential oils, and has no added fragrance, and contains no parabens, sulfates, or alcohol.
It is good for all skin types.
