Stress Relief in a Minute

How are you ladies? I'm still quite buzzed and a little dizzy from drinking too much Hoeegarden and Gordon Biersch last night. My friends and I were at the Fort and were swinging back and forth Barcino, Distillery and Basilio's. Overall, it was really fun! Laughing a lot, even if you don't remember why next morning is quite fun :D

I don't know about you but my biggest vice next to yes, smoking, is getting a massage, going to a spa or just plain pampering. I used to frequent The Spa at Alabang Town Center, and Anzen in Makati during weekdays. Whenever I feel my muscles tighten, feel the burden of stress and when my body aches and cries for a massage, or a whiff of a spa, I immediately head over to one or call one of them home services. The one thing I don't like though is how it requires so much time, preparation and effort. I hate driving, and trying to wake myself up after the spa session. Then came Amu'in:

Amu'in was born out of the desire to bring into modern-day healing the centuries-old knowledge of the use of plant essences for therapy, restoration and disease prevention.

Understanding how modern-day stress destroys both the body and the spirit, the AMU’IN lines were created to use both the aromatic, as well as the chemical aspects of these natural oils to manage stress and allow the body to heal. The scents balance and empower the emotions, while the chemical compounds fortify and heal the body.  

Infused into lotions, oils, gentle balms, and sprays, the AMU’IN products use only natural, pure essential oils and are designed to delight, excite and pamper – allowing for quicker restoration, more pleasant healing and longer-lasting health. 

One of the best things about Amu'in is that it's like a spa in a bottle. One whiff of the Anti-Stress Relief Balm after one of my stressful meetings at work and I was instantly calmed. For someone who drinks gallons of coffee a day, this balm is a complete lifesaver!

My little Amu'in army

Amu'in has four variants, all of which covers a busy woman's need like mine. For times that I need to soothe tired muscles, there's 'Alaga' which means "to care for."

  • Moisturizing Hand Lotion

  • Shower Gel
  • Body Lotion
  • Dry Body Oil
  • Essential Oil Blend - Fill spaces with the calming scent of relaxing Lavender and exquisite Ylang Ylang.
