In the middle of a pour-my-heart-out-to-you lunch with one of my sweet friends, I pulled out my small black cosmetics bag and reached for a small rollerball of oil.

As I continued to explain every little detail of a recent life event, I dotted a rich blue liquid onto the finger pads of my left hand, gently gliding the oil and then pressing my right fingers to left to evenly distribute it before inhaling deeply.

She watched me, nodding as I continued to spill my story, and then had to interrupt.

“That smells amaaaaazing,” she said, and for a split second, I jumped into beauty-blogger-and-product-evangelizer mode to tell her about my favorite new natural chill pill: La Bella Figura’s Travel Therapy Botanical Mood Booster.

{I received La Bella Figura’s Travel Therapy Botanical Mood Booster as a free gift with purchase on Cyber Monday 2013. It retails for $50 for a 5 ml roller ball.}

Though I’d only traveled a block away to my neighborhood Dean & Deluca to meet her for lunch, Travel Therapy Botanical Mood Booster was keeping me grounded during an emotional roller coaster I hadn’t planned on riding.

The incredibly comforting scent of Blue Tansy (which I’m predicting is going to be an “it” ingredient this year) transports calm and relaxation to the senses while offering a bright bit of hope to your mind and soul.

Blue Tansy is known for its ability to ease nervous tension and stress and has a distinct, floral smell that you can identify from a mile away once you’ve experienced it (think May Lindstrom Skin The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate [review tomorrow] and La Bella Figura Decouverte Under Eye Repair Serum).

Travel Therapy Botanical Mood Booster also has strategic cuts of Italian Blood Orange to lift the spirits and stimulate good energy with a hint of Bulgarian Rose Otto to nourish the heart and deliver a restored sense of well-being and self-worth.

Here’s the full ingredients list:

Oragnic Jojoba Seed Oil, Organic Blue Tansy Essential Oil, Italian Blood Orange Essential Oil, Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil and Therapeutic Clinical Grade Essential Oils Blend

With so many aromatherapy products on the market, it’s hard to name favorites sometimes, but I’m going there and saying that La Bella Figura Travel Therapy Botanical Mood Booster has a permanent spot in my beauty bag.

It’s the special blend that’s been by my side during not-so-great times, and as powerful as scent can be, what with memory-triggering and associations, Travel Therapy Botanical Mood Booster reminds me that I deserve to feel happy, calm and loved no matter where life takes me.

  • 2ndNatureBeauty

    This sounds so good!! I’m terrible with traveling and have tried the Tisserand aromatherapy ball but I haven’t heard of Blue Tansy so I’ll have to give it a go xxx

  • Marcella

    So glad to hear you’ve been loving this too! I break the mood booster out when I’m having a stressful subway ride sometimes. It’s not really an aromatherapy product but I love applying Osmia’s Linden Rose hand cream and smelling it! The Bulgarian Rose essential oil is so relaxing!

    • Oh gosh I can only imagine how handy this is on the subway, both for your mood and for the overall smell in general :) Do people look at your funny? Hehe. I need to try that Osmia Hand Cream … seeing it everywhere!

      • Marcella

        Haha, I try to smell it surreptitiously! :) But I’m slightly sad no one asks why it smells so good – c’mon non-creepy subway strangers!

  • I love the way you described showing this to your friend :) I’ve been dying to try this and everyone seems to be loving it! Sounds like it smells divine. I’m really enjoying the H.Gillerman essential oil blends (such relaxing scents) and the Osmia Organics Stream Body Oil transports me to aromatherapy heaven every time.

    • Thank you! It was such a vivid memory that I couldn’t NOT include it :) She was intrigued by blue tansy and was googling it later :) I’ve used Hope’s blends, too, and really love them … they are a staple, especially her sleep remedy. I finished up OO Stream Oil a few months ago and am making my way through all her body oils. They are my favorite (along with her exquisite soaps). xoxo

  • I love this! it’s so wonderful. I use it as a perfume a lot :) I also carry it in my makeup bag always. My other favorite aromatherapy blends are by Hope Gillerman… ( have you tried her Stress Remedy? I can’t live without it.

    • I live by Hope Gillerman’s treatments, too! I have her Tension Remedy and Sleep Remedy, but haven’t tried the Stress Remedy. I need to get her whole travel pack! I think between LBF, Hope and Lotus Wei, my mood has no excuse but to be happy! :)
