  • Make Staying Focused During These Tough Times A Little Easier With Fragrances

    0 comments / Posted on by Maeva Candles & Fragrances

    There are certain smells that we always associate with pleasant memories – for some, it is the smell of earth, after the first rains, for others, it is the aroma of incense sticks in the prayer room. There are certain smells that always relax your mind and calm your body – these are the smells that remind you of something or someone nice or take you away to a world that is far away from the harsh realities of life.

    Unfortunately for us, we are at a time in our lives, where things are not in the best of state and we need that positive reinforcement. Almost all of us are locked inside our own homes, with nowhere to go and not much to do at home. Many of us are also having to work from home, which can prove to be quite tough, especially when you have multiple people at home; on the other hand, people who stay alone will also tell you a similar tale that they too miss a certain sense of comfort.

    However, if you are a regular shopper at the Maeva Store, then making an environment that comforts you and soothes you, should become a lot easier. Allow us to tell you a few simple tips and tricks that will help you stay focused a lot more easily, during these trying times.

    First of all, clear out an area that you intend to use as your workspace and then take a little time to set it up. If you have any floral bouquets, table décor or succulents that you have already purchased from the Maeva Store, set them up to make your workspace pretty and inspiring. Now, let’s move on to creating the perfect atmosphere – let’s say you have been assigned to write an article on travel and tourism, you will want to be actually sitting on a sunny beach, with one of those exotic looking cocktails by your side. Unfortunately, that would not be possible, but you can always create that same atmosphere, by using fragrances that remind you of the ocean. You can choose from your gorgeous looking Amalfi Coast candles or you could look at Walk by the Beach, because these are sure to transport you to the coast and you will be able to feel your creativity ramp up several notches.

    Now, let’s say, you need to get that extra energy to complete an urgent project for work, but your mind just refuses to wake up from this deep slumber like mood. The reed diffusers with some soothing spices, essential oils such as Lemon, Mandarin, Refresh, Energising, mood elevators such as Limitless and Walkin’ on Sunshine are great to pep you up and give you that zing in your step. And when you are done for the day, and just want to relax and retreat to some quiet corner of your mind, choose from the essential such as Spiritual, Patchouli, Serenity or mood elevators such as Space Of Your Own, Deep in the Forest or Quiet Rendezvous. And don’t worry if you don’t have all of these – use what you have and make sure that you add the rest to your wishlist!

     

    The great thing about these essential oils and mood elevators is that you need not get any special aromatherapy sets – if you have any one of the Maeva Store sets – Owl, Bunny, Amore, or Red Heart, you can use them!

    In case you have our wax sachet, White Tuberose or you have any of our fragranced sachets such as Seashore, Sandy Beach, Juicy Apples, Vanilla Spice, Gardenia, Exotic Garden, you can leave them hanging around anywhere in your home and their incredible fragrance will transport you to a better world.

    Try doing any of the above and we are sure it will your lockdown a little more efficient and interesting.

    You know that once your bestie gets married, she will be busy setting up her new home and you would be right to feel that rather than gifting her just some dinner sets or bedspreads, you should be getting her something that will add a sense of pizzazz to her new home. At the Maeva store, you will be able to find plenty of things that will add charm and elegance to a newlywed nest and you might feel the need to pick up more than one thing.


    torans, dried flowers

    If you are planning on creating a gift hamper for your best friend, the welcome torans for the front entrance would be a good place to start. At Maeva, you will find more than just the traditional colors of yellow and orange – why not pick out a gorgeous pink flower toran that will not only welcome guests into the new house, but also tickle the pink-loving bestie of yours, each time she walks in and out of the house.

     



    There are also some interesting floral mats, which would make for a wonderful addition to the gift hamper that you are creating for your friend. She could use these floral mats on the floor, on top of bureaus or even as wall hangings because they look great anyway. You can choose from a range of color options, including pink; especially if you want to color coordinate the floral mat with the entrance toran. These flower mats even work great within thalis, which means that these are great for festive occasions – place the floral mat on a traditional thali, keep a few days and you are set!

     



    When your best friend is the typical girly girl, then she would probably love flowers and while it would be quite difficult to send her fresh flowers regularly, you could gift her a dried flower bouquet from the Maeva store. No matter how bright or how subtle the color palette you want, you will be able to find a bouquet that matches what you are looking for and when you add this to the gift hamper, your best friend will always have gorgeous flowers to adorn her home.

     



    Because she is your best friend, you could also take liberties to shop for a little something for her bedroom! Why not gift her some designer candles – shapes, colors, sizes, fragrances, no matter what you are thinking of, you will them aplenty at the Maeva store. Visit the online store and you will find a range of candles and diyas that will make wonderful additions to any bedroom. Alternately, you could choose to pick up some fragrance diffusers; yet another great way to create a romantic mood or simply freshen up the mood of the room. At the Maeva store, you will find plenty of diffusers as well as fragrances you can choose from. Pick one or more diffusers, but do remember to choose a range of fragrances for your friend’s hamper – floral, citrusy and everything in between!

     



     

    Spend a few minutes on the Maeva store website and you will understand why this place is a gift shopper’s paradise – you will find so much to choose from for your best friend’s wedding gift hamper. And do remember to pick out a little something for yourself too!
