Here in the Wellness Department, we’re always catching the after-work, weekday wanderers who are looking for a little calm and clarity during the sluggish afternoon hours. It’s no wonder that we often stumble into them combing through our towering essential oil racks whilst dabbing their necks with Kuumba Made oil wands, or spritzing themselves with one of Valentina’s Home Brewed essential oil spritzers.
Valentina’s Home Brewed products incorporate the concept of intention into delectable blends that inspire bliss, calm, and if you believe her, a few other good things as well. A woman whose journey to body care included running away to Paris to read tarot cards and performing gypsy spells at the age of nine, Valentina believes her products should be incorporated into ritualistic use.
One example is her, “Sunny Outlook,” perfume oils infused with Mandarin, Lemon, and Ginger. It comes complete with recommendations for use, straight from the mystical lady herself. Dab it on your earlobes, ankles, and behind your knees. “You’ll radiate an irresistible glow of positive energy,” Valentina promises, “so smile big.”
We also love her Psychic Detox mineral, made with citruses, peppermint, and neroli oils. It is strongly suggested to be taken with a glass of lemonade or white wine. Just make sure you’ve laid out some clean pajamas to complete the Valentina’s recommended experience.
Whether you love her unconventional approach, or just delight in the perfect balance of her blends like we do, you can’t deny that Valentina’s Home Brewed products are simply delightful. Don’t just take our word for it. Stop in and try them yourself. Give yourself a moment in-between your bustling work-day and your uproarious City Market scram to drop in and take a breather.
