Self-care with Therapy Threads & Giveaway – 2017 Holiday Gift Guide

therapy threads

It is not just the holiday season: life in general can be stressful, and it can wreak havoc on our minds as well as our everyday responsibilities.

Aromatherapy, which involves the use of essential oils as a complementary health approach, has grown in popularity as a way to de-stress, just like coloring. Some studies have shown that aromatherapy might have health benefits, such as:

  • Relief from anxiety and depression
  • Improved quality of life, particularly for people with chronic health conditions
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved quality of life for people with dementia

I use an electric aromatherapy oil diffuser (like this one), but how about surrounding yourself everywhere you go with kind thoughts along with the benefits of aromatherapy? Therapy Threads has you covered!

Therapy Threads kindly sent me some products to try. I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my observations while using these products. This post does contain affiliate links.




About Therapy Threads

therapy threadsTherapy Threads is a conscious clothing and accessories line started by psychotherapist Dani Singer.  Its products promote a holistic approach to health and wellness while keeping its wearers comfortable and chic. The company is particularly focused on helping you in practicing self-care and erasing the stigma around mental illness.

therapy threadsThe brand features a collection of high-quality, all-natural aromatherapy scarves and accessories, plus inspirational T-shirts, that deliver hope and healing.

Therapy Threads is committed to supporting mental health and wellness. And Therapy Threads puts their money where their mouth is: 10% of sales also to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).

Aromatherapy Scarves

therapy threadsEach scarf is about 79″ x 29″ (printed ones are a bit smaller) and has a little pocket where you tuck an aroma pad dabbed with essential oil. Once you’re comfortably wrapped, the patent-pending scarf unlocks the powerful connection between sense of smell and emotional, physical and mental well-being.

I found my scarf so soft and cozy and perfect for keeping me warm and relaxed on a plane, and it kept the chill off in my office.  It is light enough to stow in your purse.

The scarf is also great as an extra layer under a coat in cold weather, or as a light warm-weather wrap. A few twists and it is a stylish neck wrap for any time of year, and perfect for keeping the wind out on a blustery day.  Such a multi-tasker!

Jewelry

therapy threadsTherapy Threads has two types of jewelry. The wood beads on the stretchy AromaBracelets absorb essential oil so you can have therapy with you all day. Each bracelet comes with 1/4 dram of the 100% pure, organic essential oil of your choice. Simply rub 2-3 drops of essential oil onto the beads to Indulge in the healing properties.

I tried the neutral olive wood bracelet and love that it is so adaptable to almost any outfit.

therapy threadsDeveloped to quiet the mind and establish focus on meditation, Mala Therapy beads are used to count mantras (Sanskrit prayers). The large guru bead provides a starting and ending point on the mala for counting the 108 repetitions in a set. Similar to affirmations, mantras might include:

“I am strong. I am beautiful. I am enough.”

“I am grateful for all that is unfolding in my life.”

“I am fulfilled. I am fearless.”

“Less is more.”

Like the bracelets, each Aromatherapy Mala comes with essential oil.  You can wear your mala as a necklace or wrap it around your wrist as a bracelet.



 Super-soft T-shirts

therapy threadsThe super-soft T-shirts are US-made with 100% ringspun cotton. Therapy Threads offers versions with different messages, but my step-daughters and I have fallen in love with the “Take a deep breath” one – a wearable constant reminder to practice breathing (hopefully with your bracelet or scarf on!) several times each day.

Love the T-Shirt Label!

There are several T-shirts in kids’ sizes as well, most notable the “Kind is the New Cool” one, a great way to instill the idea of the un-bullying kindness movement “…where being kind, including others, and compliments are cool; and making fun of, bad mouthing, denigrating, and contemptuous sarcasm are not.”

A note on sizing:  I usually wear a size 4 top.  However I do like my T-shirts on the loose side so in the above photo I am wearing a medium.



Essential Oils

therapy threadsEvery scarf and bracelet comes with a vial of essential oil. Therapy Threads also has a selection of fifteen different essential oils in 10ml bottles.  These contain only 100% pure essential oil.
