Mindfulness. It's being written and talked about as a powerful practice to help people deal with the stresses of modern life and achieve a greater sense of wellbeing. But what is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is an ancient practice that promotes a special way of thinking, or not thinking as the case may be. It has amazing benefits for your physical and mental health, helping you to focus on the present and not dwell on the past or on things that might happen in the future. It also leads to greater clarity and concentration.
There are many ways to promote mindfulness - meditation and yoga being two of the better known. But for those who can't get their daily dose of these activities, there's another way to promote mindfulness - something you can carry in your handbag, keep on the bedside table or have at the ready on your desk at work - Combardis Elixirs. These elixirs contain essential oils with properties which help control emotional stress and, when used aromatically, have been scientifically proven to calm the mind, balance the emotions, purify and energise.
Combardis Elixirs was established with the intention of sharing the benefits of pure essential oils in unique, engaging and uplifting ways. The range of Combardis Aromatic Mists is sought after by a strong following of customers who embrace the concept of living mindfully. These customers have benefited from introducing scents developed using the highest quality essential oils into their every day lives.
Karen Pethard, the creator of Combardis Elixirs, is passionate about living an holistic, authentic and healthy life. After embarking upon formal study in the areas of energetic healing and aromatherapy, the idea to set up Combardis came about.
Karen's passion for the product is contagious. "The fragrance of an essential oil can directly influence the emotional centre of the brain and help to balance emotions, remove negativity and uplift the mood," she says. "The fragrance does not have to be intense to be effective and even when the scent passes, the positive effects of the essential oils will linger. The benefits of essential oils are far reaching - not at all limited to just a beautiful fragrance."
In distinguishing Combardis Elixirs from the rest of the market, Karen says, "It's not about providing another essential oil product to the market but about offering an experience; a beautiful, natural scent that can be used in mindful ritual to ground you in the present. It's about taking a moment for yourself and using it purposefully."
Combardis embodies this philosophy with its engaging and uplifting products that contribute to an overall sense of wellbeing. Aromatic mists labelled Abundant Life, Harmony, Clarity, Highest Potential and Inner Strength among others have been perfectly blended to give you mindfulness and wellbeing at your fingertips. And, if you can't find a blend that meets your need, Combardis will personalise an aromatic mist just for you.
Complementing the mists and helping you achieve greater wellbeing and mindfulness, all Combardis Aromatic Mists are accompanied by affirmations connected to each of the blends. As you breath in the mist and read the affirmation, you will find yourself focusing on the present with greater clarity and calm. "Using essential oils with intention is a very powerful combination - intention allows for focus and concentration on goals and desired outcomes." Karen says.
Products from the Combardis range are a unique gift idea - whether for yourself or to be given and shared with family or friends who need some calm, focus and mindfulness in their lives.
