A Parisian Perspective of 21 Drops

February 19th, 2014

Paris – one of the most romantic, inspiring and beautiful places in the world, teeming with art, music, culture, and delicious delicacies. Every corner I turned I was met with a unique sense of discovery and inspiration. And with my arsenal of 21 Drops blends, I was ready for any opportunity, challenge, and adventure!

Let me take you through my Parisian adventure:



 En route to the Miami, FL airport bright and early… My De-stress blend is a daily necessity to keep me sane through rush hour traffic!



Time to chill out before the 9+ hour flight… tight spaces & crying babies – bring it on!

#15Decongest, #07Equalize#04Hangover, #14Immunity, #02PMSRelief, #13CarryOn, #19WillPower

 I showed up to my sister Lana’s dorm at the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris to find her arsenal of health (21 Drops) and beauty products on display in this boutique medicine cabinet! She, like my mother and I, definitely embody the brand’s persona: “Mother Nature in high heels.”

#06Passion, #01Invigorate 

A dear family friend, Simone, invited Lana and I to attend a fabulous event that showcased a new line from her company, Tai Ping Carpets.


As you can see, they are truly unique works of art, pulling from a diverse range of inspirations. Here, we connected with the colorful and playful aspect of these two pieces in particular, as they align so well with our 21 Drops products!


#09Focus, #11DeStress

 While the metro system in Paris is refreshingly well organized and relatively simple to navigate, dealing with the hustle bustle of major public transport is a good time to Focus, then retreat into some stress-less “me time.” Here, Lana opts for an extra dose of the De-stress blend prior to her interview with a high-profile advertising firm, Publicis Groupe, (which she subsequently nailed and got a stellar intern position BTW!)

#10 Calm

I wandered the more natural avenues of the Champs-Élysées as I waited for Lana’s big interview to finish. However, being a big sis, I couldn’t help but be anxious and excited for her to have this opportunity… hence, I kept my Calm blend readily available as I passed the time doing some more solo-exploration.


 Lana feeling strong and empowered outside the Publicis Groupe offices after crushing her interview (which was conducted in English AND in French)!


#20Abstain, #17Digest

 To celebrate Lana’s success, we decided to reward ourselves with an infamous Parisian Nutella and banana crepe! But before indulging, we took a healthy whiff of our Abstain blend to have more control over our sweet tooth! Then, post enjoyment, we used our Digest blend to stimulate metabolism.


Next, we took our exploratory celebration, to new heights for a Zen perspective of Paris with Equalize.


 After each full day of strolling the city on foot, our custom industrial-sized Pain Relief blend was necessary to treat our poor worn out feet… especially in preparation for the nights’ heel-donning activities.



 “Wine Therapy – Save water. Drink more wine.” I couldn’t have said it better myself! It was refreshing to not feel like such a wine-o in Paris! Who doesn’t want a casual glass of wine when meeting up with the ladies for Sunday brunch? Keep Calm and drink more wine, like the French!



 Finding beauty in all things. We discovered a series of memorials, revering and remembering individuals through natural scapes. If one must Carry On, it is nice to know they will be remembered through new life.



 That time of the month (aka “Shark Week”) on vaca? The BEST solution: PMS Relief blend AND chocolate!


 Inspiration for all women – we all embody pure, classic, timeless beauty, even when life changes try to turn up the heat!



 Solo climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower? Yeah! For sure, I can do that.



 I just couldn’t resist. This sculpture embodied the beautiful human form… with a migraine?



The Louvre contains an insurmountable number of infamous works of art! Ready to be inspired.



 Why the smug look, girlfriend?


#04Detox, #18Sleep

 Before, during and after a night out, hangover prevention is key with lots of water and my Detox blend. Also, I like to couple this with Sleep every night, to make sure I get some good REM Zzz’s.



 Although I rarely ever get sick, I like to be proactive in my approach to health and wellness – especially when traveling! I always have my Immunity blend in my purse to ward off evil little microbes. Plus, it’s far more stylish than wearing a medical mask!


And thus concludes my 10-day adventure at a glance with my best travel buddy, 21 Drops!





I Love It When I Can Find Effective, Safe and Chemical-Free Remedies

February 14th, 2014

“The #05 Headache blend from 21 drops is absolutely just what I’ve needed. I tend to get headaches often. Many times they start from tension in my neck and move up. I also have a history of chronic migraines. Not only do I have many chemical sensitivities, but I have recently switched to all-natural products and I love it when I can find effective, safe and chemical-free remedies.”

21 drops has just that. Made with essentials oils blended to stimulate bloodflow, the #05 Headache blend relieves the pain and helps me focus on what matters…my son, my work, my hobbies…my life. I love the Mini-Rollers because I can easily stash one in my purse, pocket, wallet or console in my car. I purchased the four pack sampler of the Mini-Rollers from Sephora after hearing about them on Twitter and reading great reviews. I am so glad that I did because I’ve now discovered an all-natural remedy to alleviate my headache pain, and it even lessens the neck pain.

I would also like to add that in the past I was very hesitant to take OTC medication at the onset of a headache, and often times my headaches would progress into full-on migraines. I can honesty say that if I dab 21 drops at the source (for me usually on my neck and temples), it prevents it from progressing and the pain begins to subside instantaneously. I must say I also love the design of the bottles. They’re colorful and a cute…just another added bonus. I’m thrilled to have discovered 21 drops, and will continue to use the headache blend, as well as others. The #01 Invigorate and #18 Sleep are also fantastic blends. I am anxious to try several others, such as #08 Pain Relief and #07 Equalize The only regret I have about 21 drops is that I did not discover them sooner!

It is Tried and True and I Love It

February 5th, 2014

“I’m still kind of a newbie with the brand. #18 Sleep was the first blend I ever tried, and this one is absolutely my favorite! Whenever I smell it, I just feel calm, at peace, and it has friendly memories of being warm, cozy and ready to go to sleep. I also got #14 Immunity at the height of cold and flu season, and let me tell you, it actually works. When all of my roommates were getting colds and flus, I did not get sick. The third one I have is #02 PMS Relief, and this stuff is wonderful. It helps me feel more balanced, stable and equalized. These were the first three blends I tried and can’t wait to try more.”

Medical Student Uses Focus to Get the Best Out of Study Time

February 4th, 2014

“I am in medical school, and by the end of a long day of class, the thought of studying is exhausting. Before turning to caffeine, I saw a 21 drops mini-set and bought it to give #09 Focus a try. I am not sure if it is the scent itself, or just taking a moment away from the notes to relax and breathe, but it really helps me to get the most out of study time. I loved it so much, I bought 2 more!”

I Can’t Wait to Try More

February 4th, 2014

“I’m always looking for natural ways to improve life’s little moments of anguish. I was delighted to find 21 drops and have them work so well! I tried the mini-set that includes #05 Headache, #06 Passion, #09 Focus and #18 Sleep. I loved them all so much, I had to share with my blog audience and I tell all my clients. I can’t wait to try more!

These were my faves:

#05 Headache: This one I use a lot. I am a victim of frequent mini headaches. Sometimes stress-related, sometimes linked to computer neck or the very uncomfortable bed my husband and I plan to replace when we move. I rub it on my wrists, neck and temples or waft the bottle under my nose a few times for a power punch of healing. It works well for mild headaches.

#18 Sleep: Wow! Talk about powerful! Sleep is a precious commodity that doesn’t always come easy for me. I have tried everything from meditation to herbal remedies to relaxation supplements. These sleep drops are the perfect remedy. For one thing, I had no idea how well it would work, so I put a little dab of oil everywhere and took a big whiff before going to bed the first night I bought the drops. Ha! I slept like a baby and was even groggy the next morning because I dosed it a little high – I had no idea it would work so well! Now that I know better, I can adjust my dose, unlike the other methods, to accommodate my needs and my schedule. A good whiff ensures I’ll fall asleep fast. A couple of dabs keep me asleep through the night without morning grogginess. And, I can add more for lazy Sundays, when I can wake up slowly.”
