"The concept for melts was derived from years of stress and anxiety. For almost as early as I can remember I had been told I had an “over-active” mind. It wasn’t until I was in my early 20’s during my undergraduate studies that I realized I had pretty bad anxiety, it was as if I could never turn my mind off. As you can imagine, throughout my masters it only got worse. The more stress that piled on, the less I knew how to cope. When I went for medical advice, I was told to take anti-depressants and heavy drugs such as Xanax.
I am fairly against over the counter medications so the concept of taking a daily pill and becoming addicted to something didn’t sit well with me. After a few years of taking medication I’d had enough, there had to be a better way. I did hours of research into medicinal herbs. I also had a lab mate at the time whose mother was a bit of a hippie and had all sorts of ancient herbal remedies for relaxation. I took all this knowledge and combined it to come up with the best calm inducing herbal blends! At the time we would combine them in a pot with boiling water and make “peace tea” as we used to call it.
So I thought to myself, why not come up with an herbal tincture (infused oil) that’s super easy to take for daily use, or whenever I’m feeling a bit on edge. It’s now been almost a year that I have personally come off anxiety medication and have been using these calming infusions. I’ve never felt better. A mixture of these calming oils and meditation is the perfect combination to fight off anxiety and stress and live a more present, fulfilled life."
