La Bella Figura | Happiness Therapy

As much as I would like for the opposite to be true, not every day is awesome. Some days are just average, and others can be truly disastrous. Yet no matter what life throws at us, we still have certain responsibilities. Even though hiding from the world under the duvet is what I want to do on occasion, facing difficult circumstances head on is the only real choice. On occasion, there is nothing to face really, I'm just not feeling chipper and doing my best impression of the grumpy cat. Regardless of the cause for my bad mood, I don't particularly enjoy being in it, no matter how justified. My first point of action is rubbing an aromatherapy treatment on pulse points, followed by closing my eyes and doing a yoga breathing exercise.  These two things complement each other so well, and while controlled breathing is amazing all on its own, paired up with a therapeutic blend takes things to another level.

La Bella Figura are becoming more and popular because of their skincare potions, but let us not forget that the founders original passion also involved perfume. Their scents Istanbul and Barcelona are still some of my favourites, so it was no surprise I wanted to get my hands on the Happiness Therapy mood booster pretty much as it came out. 

The ingredients:
Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Gardenia Tahitensis (Tahitian Tiare), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Pulp) CO2*, Psidium Guajava (Guava Leaf), Citrus Aurantium (Bergamot), Rosa Damascena (Rose Otto) Essential Oil* and Therapeutic Clinical Grade Essential Oils Blend. 
*Certified Organic

The essential oils that have been listed promote feeling of relaxation and bergamot in particular is supposed to help ease anxiety. Rose Otto is one of the most expensive essential oils on the market (come to think of it, it well may be the most expensive), it has a magnificent delicate scent that helps keep you calm through emotional or tense times. The blend as a whole has a bit of a tropical vibe, yet despite being on the sweet floral side, it is very fresh. There are no powdery notes at all, and the whole combo reminds me a bit of a ripe papaya. Every time I open the Happiness Therapy I'm definitely thinking sunshine and holidays.

Not only does this mood booster work like a charm, the bottle travels really well in my handbag. I haven't experienced any leakages. I keep it with me at all times just in case I need a little cheering up, you never know what the day will bring you. I like to be optimistic but prepared.
