A few months ago when I was visiting a friend in London (ON), I walked past a store called Saje – the smell emitting from the store was what lured me in. When I walked in, I learned all about their nebulizers and the benefits of essential oils and aromatherapy…but I ended up walking out empty handed as I wanted to do some more research.
A few months passed and to be honest I had totally forgot about Saje…that was until I saw a fellow blogger post something about her nebulizer. I did more research and couldn’t help but buy one for myself.
I purchased the AromaGem Ultrasonic Nebulizer in chrome (it was the least expensive and I thought the most stylish). It’s super simple to use and it acts as an air purifier and a humidifier. The nebulizer is heat free and very safe to use – once it runs out of water it stops automatically. By a simple push of the button, the machine turns on and puffs out a soft, waterless mist of essential oils, beneficial and healthy to breathe in. I usually put my nebulizer on the intermittent setting, it puffs out mist (which is not wet at all) every 10 seconds. The website says it lasts around four hours, but mine lasts about five to six hours before I have to refill it.
All of the essential oils by Saje have various benefits to them. My favourites that I’ve come across are Yoga, Immune and Refresh.
Yoga truly smells like a yoga studio – it reminds me of a spa and totally relaxes me. It is meant to ‘bring balance to your day, and practice and creates an intention of loving kindness’ – just like yoga is meant to do. It has notes of lavender, grapefruit and neroli and it definitely feels grounding. My favourite time to use it is after work. You know those ‘on-the-go’ days where you feel like you haven’t really stopped? After putting my nebulizer on with Yoga, I feel like I can breathe and forget about my busy day.
Immune is my second favourite (so far) – the name (just like ‘Yoga)’, does and smells exactly as it sounds. It provides an immune boosting experience and cleans the air of bacteria and virus particles. It’s super uplifting, and the air in the room feels cleansed and cool. I love turning it on before bed or during the day – the scent of eucalyptus, and peppermint makes my mind, and body feel refreshed and pure.
Refresh is like a breath of fresh air. It has notes of peppermint, spearmint, lemon, and eucalyptus and it’s supposed to “sharpen focus and keep your train of thought on track”. I haven’t used this while I work at my desk, but I do find it very invigorating and cleansing. It just makes you feel ‘refreshed’.
Refresh is also part of the ‘Best of Saje Deluxe Diffuser Blends’. The diffuser blends in this set include (and are ordered by my favourite to least favourite – Refresh being number one):
Rain forest: it smells like a rainforest. It has notes of pine, fir and mint. I like the earthy scent it brings into a room and it helps to clear the mind and make you feel grounded.
Exhale: very similar to Refresh. It has minty notes and is meant to clear the mind, and body to help renew and fresh. It’s great to have by your yoga mat as you practice your downward dog or meditation.
Liquid Sunshine: perfect to give you an energy boost. It certainly smells like every citrus fruit in one bottle – almost good enough to drink. It’s great to have on in the morning when you need to wake up, or even during the middle of the day for a boost.
Tranquility: is very peaceful and relaxing. You don’t need a lot of drops in your nebulizer as it’s very strong. You can smell notes of lavender and chamomile – it’s perfect to have on before bed.
Spa Spirit: my least favourite (I don’t like it at all)…although I thought the name would definitely make it my favourite. It’s apparently meant to bring a “healing, spa-like atmosphere in to your home” but I find it very sweet and pungent smelling. Everyone has their own preference in scents, but quite honestly this one gives me a headache.
*On the note of headaches…I’m very sensitive to fragrance. I get an immediate headache and the feeling of a drop in blood sugar when I don’t like a certain scent. These diffuser blends are 100% natural and don’t contain artificial fragrances – I am perfectly fine with them and they don’t make me react at all.
I am just obsessed with Saje. They make an amazing product and the best thing is that they’re Canadian! I turn it on whenever I can – when I’m reading a book, watching TV, practicing yoga, blogging, or just hanging out.
I already want to buy a second nebulizer and am always browsing on their website to learn more about their various blends – I can see myself filling every room in my home with a nebulizer…
Stay tuned for more Saje reviews – I know it will be a favourite on the blog!
Saje was kind enough to send me product for review, and as a disclaimer, everything I review and write about is a product I truly love.
