Escents Headache Relief Roll-on Stick and Shameless Gushing

I have to say, one of my favourite parts of blogging is the people I have met and the friendships I have developed through this blog. It is really refreshing to come on here and be "surrounded" by people who share my interests. This post is going to be full of shameless gushing about one of those friends in particular, Jayne from Cosmetic Proof, who was one of my first followers and one of the first people I began following. She always leaves such nice and thoughtful comments on my blog, and I totally trust and respect her opinion.  She wrote an April Luvs post which included a mention of Escents Headache Relief Roll-on Stick. I was instantly interested, being a frequent headache sufferer myself, and made a comment about wishing that Escents had boutiques in Ontario. A day later I received an incredibly kind email from Jayne saying she was going to mail me an extra stick she had. I was blown away by her kindness.

What I found in my package from Jayne :)


So when the stick finally came in the mail it could not have come at a better time. I had had a horrible day, and was just on the verge of developing a headache. Along with the Roll-On Stick, she sent me some delicious Purdy's chocolate (which isn't available in Ontario... and is already gone since I ate it the next day!), and a lovely little note handwritten from her.

The infamous headache stick

I have to say, Jayne's gift has had a huge impact on my life. I carry this with me in my purse, and at the slight hint of a headache, roll it on my temples and a touch under my nose. No more then 5 minutes later I'm 100% again. I cram a work week into four days so I am staring at the computer for unhealthy amounts of time, and this has become a life saver. I already have, but I again want to thank Jayne, for being so incredibly kind and generous and always supporting myself and my blog from the beginning. If you haven't checked out her blog yet you definitely should, and if you suffer from headaches try and get your hands on this product! It will change your life!

Hope you enjoyed this post!

    Just found your blog. What a great blog you have. Following you :)

  14. This is such a lovely post about the friendships that can be made online! Thank you for sharing.

    I am also one of those stare-at-the-computer-screen-all-day-long workaholics and my headaches were becoming an almost weekly part of my routine. But even worse - I hated taking medicine for headaches. All that stuff in my body felt so unnatural. What works best for me is this new natural product out in the marketplace. Here's their website if you're interested: http://www.aculief.com/products/aculief

  17. I am not a great fan of dark chocolate. It is dark on the taste as well. People rely on lavender oil, basil and spinach for headaches :-)
