Oh, my goodness. I think I have reached that age when I need some sort of smelling oil by my side all the time. There is this joke that says that when we’re in school, we smell like Johnson’s Baby Cologne or Denenes, in college, we smell like perfume, and when we start working, we smell like Omega Painkiller / Efficascent / White Flower oil 😀
Well, I found a more convenient, travel-friendly and better-smelling option!
DANARRA AROMATHERAPY OIL
Last week, I attended the launch of Danarra Aromatherapy Oil at the Grand Hyatt Manila. Danarra is a roll-on type of aromatherapy oil that not only has menthol, but also fragrance scents like Lavender, etc… it comes in a handy container that you can easily slip into your purse or pocket.
The name Danarra is derived from the word “Nadarra,” which, in the Scottish Gaelic vocabulary means “natural.” Celtic knots were chosen to become its symbol because Danarra and the Celtic knots connote interconnectedness between a person and nature.
Danarra Aromatherapy Oil helps boost mental activity, provides a calming effect, helps relieve headache and nervous exhaustion and restlessness, makes you feel fresh and energized, lifts your mood and relieves stress.
Danarra Aromatherapy Oil is available in six variants:
- Danarra Classic Menthol – Destress – gives instant relief in the traditional and familiar camphor scent. It can provide sinus care and help with motion sickness and itchiness due to insect bites.
- Danarra Green Tea – Clear Mind – helps to relax, calm and soothe you making you feel fresh and energized.
- Danarra Lavender – Relaxing Sleep – help eliminates nervous tension and aids in providing relaxing sleep. Perfect for insomniacs.
- Danarra Young – Cool and Fresh – has the cool wind effect and freshness of air. It is perfect for moments when your senses are hit by unpleasant aromas.
- Danarra Flowery Citrus – Energy Giving – uplifts your spirit with hint of citrus and flowers.
- Danarra Sport – Mood Booster – is perfect for your active lifestyle.
You can also try combining the scents to find an aroma you like!
The beautiful Miss Karla Estrada is the face of Danarra Aromatherapy Oils – she shared her secrets on how to destress, which include going to buffets and having a glass of wine, and of course, always having Danarra oils handy.
Anyway, during the event itself, I was getting a headache because I had a slight cold. So I used the testers and applied some on my temples and under my nose. It was able to relieve my headache for about 2 hours! After 2 hours, I just applied some Danarra again 🙂
Initially, it seems like the scents all smell the same because they all have that base smell of menthol. However, pay more attention and you’ll notice that there are indeed some differences in the scents.
My favorite scent is Flowery Citrus. I keep a bottle on my desk all the time now. The Danarra Aromatherapy Oils are also great to keep away pollution smells and to keep you from getting nauseous on the road.
I feel like it is effective because it keeps my mind focused on the menthol scent, keeping me awake and not focused on the pollution or the stress I am facing at that time. The additional scents of the green tea, lavender, etc… makes the oils smell better and fresher than just a regular menthol oil. I feel like the menthol also relaxes the muscles in my temples. Sometimes, instead of applying the oil, I just smell it and the smell instantly lifts my mood 🙂
Danarra is easy to apply because it is a roll-on – there’s no worry about spills.
We were given a set, so I gave my sister some, and I also gave J the Sport scent. They were both really happy with it, and were telling me that this was a product they never knew they needed but now they realized they needed it in their life! I myself did not think I would use Danarra so much in the past few days, but I have. Every day! Good thing that it’s only P89 per 10ml bottle so it’s quite affordable and should last a long time 🙂 I’ve been using it for a week and have only noticed a very, very small deduction in the amount of product in the bottle.
Danarra Aromatherapy Oil is priced at P89.00 and is available at Mercury Drug Stores nationwide.
