Review: Sensaria

My life has been anything but stress-free lately. For the past three months, I've been back on fertility treatment to - hopefully - conceive our second child. My hormones are constantly in flux, which makes me moody, anxious and emotional for at least a week out of each month. If you keep up with me on Twitter, you'll know my husband was laid off two weeks ago. Enough said there. And to top it off, we are babysitting my sister-in-law's children (ages 11, 4 and 1) for 4 days while she is on a mission trip to Cameroon. Needless to say, things have been more than chaotic around here.

But now, when I feel myself getting worked up and overwhelmed, I can just reach for my Sensaria.

Sensaria is a premier direct seller of naturally-based, spa-grade skin and body care products for personal and home use. Their philosophy is that daily self-care lays the groundwork for a healthy lifestyle and that every person deserves to use natural products that promote health and individual beauty.

While Sensaria products are available for purchase online, the core of their business revolves around in-home gatherings called Spa Experiences. At a Sensaria Spa Experience, a Host receives rewards for inviting one of our Independent Sales Representatives into her home to demonstrate their products. Since the very first Spa Experience in 2001, Sensaria now boasts thousands of Independent Representatives throughout the country.

I was fortunate enough to receive the Equilibria Balancing Spray from Sensaria for review.

The Equilibria Balancing Spray for Women features a sensuous aromatherapy blend of essential oils, including ylang ylang, neroli and geranium to harmonize moods, reduce stress and relieve some symptoms of PMS. You can use this cruelty-free formula as a room mist, linen spray or as a perfume on wrists and decollete to restore balance to the feminine cycle.

As soon as I found my patience was running on empty from our barrage of troubles, I spritzed some of my Equilibria Balancing Spray and breathed in the fragrance. It was as if I were frolicking through a floral garden, surrounded by roses, jasmine and orange blossoms. I'm not sure if it was the actual scent or the fact that I took a moment to clear my head and focus on something serene, but I really felt more calm and collected and ready to face what was before me. If you are like me and get really irritable during the first few days of your "monthly gift" or if you're simply juggling too many balls in the air at times, this spray is a fast, effective Mommy time out.

The only thing about the product that I am slightly disappointed with is that it is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women. Since I am trying to conceive, I am a bit reluctant to spray it during my two-week wait. It's also a little on the pricey side. For a one-income family, it's probably not something I would usually splurge on. But if you regularly invest in spa products, I think this would be a fun addition to your bath and body collection.

I have been looking at what else Sensaria has to offer and I would love to try the Cherry Almond Reconstructive Shampoo and Conditioner, Vanilla Bean Body Butter and the Microdermabrasion Creme. I also like that they have a whole Men's Skin Care collection. Their selection of home and personal care products is huge so there's no way you can put just one thing on your wish list!

Bottom line: Life may not always be roses - but at least it can smell like it with Equilibria Balancing Spray for Women.

Hi Kristin!

Thank you for reviewing our Equilibria Balancing Spray for Women. I wanted to let you know that when it comes to products that address hormonal issues, we like to err on the side of caution, but there is no evidence to suggest any need for concern according to the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA). In fact, we have had two women in the office that were trying to conceive for two years, and finally had success after only one month of using Equilibria! It could be because of the high quality essential oils, or maybe because men seem to really love the scent! Regardless, we are hearing tons of testimonials about balanced moods, better sleep and increased “activity” in the bedroom! It’s great for any age, and it can even be worn as a sensual body fragrance.

Aromatherapy utilizes essential oils to promote physical and psychological well-being. This particular formula contains superior quality essential oils that target women’s issues, which is reflected in the price. And, like you suggested in your review, anyone can earn this product for FREE, just by hosting a Spa Experience!

“Spray, before you speak” is a popular mantra amongst our top Representatives to ensure all of their interactions are happy ones!
