Does it seem like everyone's in a bad mood these days?
That's how I felt a few years ago...
It all started with a busy day at the office, a crazy meeting and a vial of some sort of calming essential oil blend. In the hysteria of the day, the oil spilled, my dress was soaked, and everyone in the meeting kept asking what was it that they smelled.
If I were going to use essential oils to manage my day, my stress and my mood, then they needed to be a little more discreet. They also needed to be totally portable, TSA friendly, and fun.
Mood Food was born. The name’s a little funny but the way I see it: we don’t need to feed our mood with food, as much as we need to stoke its fire and keep it burning through thought, intention and connection.
We launched in 2019 with our aromatherapy and crystal balms, which were over a year in development, with countless blends and oils, several attempted bases and packaging options. The balm base is made with organic oils plus a vegan wax, so it's creamy and emollient. The essential oils are blended with equal parts efficacy and ‘oh that smells good’ in mind. And the crystals are an innovative sprinkle that add a little extra power of intention.
But all along, there was a bigger idea – Mood Management. How could we create products that helped to manage and maintain true happiness, deep connection with oneself and genuine contentment. We weren’t after superficial Happy Days kind of sentiments, but instead, ideas that sparked the kind of joy that comes from an inner knowing that we’re on the right path, and that all we really need to do is honor ourselves and just BE who we really are. When we live in that place, every day is a gift, problems turn into opportunities and there’s a lot less to argue about.
What started with sticky notes stuck to mirrors and refrigerators, has turned into our line of Positive Affirmation Clings. There’s more information about how the clings magically stick to any smooth surface here. We think they’re pretty special and hope there are some that speak to you.
