Full Scent Description
Quiet Night is a wonderfully calming perfume of Lavender & Roman Chamomile Essential Oils in rice bran oil. This blend is primarily for aromatherapy purposes as opposed to a long-lasting perfume. In Aromatherapy, Lavender and Chamomile are both traditionally used to combat insomnia. Lavender’s strong, herbaceous and slightly floral aroma marries with a soft background of Roman Chamomile’s sweetish, warm-herbaceous and faintly apple like fragrance, whisking you away under the cloak of night to be free to dream and sleep peacefully. Lavender is also indicated for headaches, migraines, stress and anxiety, so you may enjoy carrying this perfume with you throughout the day should you need a lifeline to help combat the start of a headache or nervous tension. Dry down for this fragrance is very soft and subtle and does not have the staying power of synthetic perfumes. This fragrance starts off with a strong burst and calms down to a mild blend after only a few minutes.
Apply this potion on chest, neck, and anywhere else you desire. Adjust your bedroom so that it is conducive to getting a good night’s rest. Some people like to sleep with a nightlight, others need complete darkness and silence. If your mind is racing, make a list of the things that are preventing you from sleeping. If you are thinking about all things you have to do tomorrow, make a to-do list and then tell your mind it is time to calm down. Make sure to keep your work/hobbies in a separate room. The bedroom is for sleeping, and when you bring other activities into the room, your mind sometimes cannot separate itself from focusing on other things. Chamomile, valerian and skullcap are all herbal teas that you can drink before bed to help you wind down and relax (consult your health practitioner before starting any herbal remedies).
Ingredients: Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Fragrance (may include essential oils).
Size: Approx 5ml packaged in a glass vial with protective box.
Other: Our Perfume oils are all Vegan with the exception of Inquisitor, which contains beeswax absolute.
Application tip: If your roller ball runs dry during application, remove black cap, hold your bottle vertically with roller ball pointing to the ground and forcefully shake/thrust the bottle down one time to replenish the oil in the well. Now it is ready to reapply to your skin.
Storage and Shelf Life
Most of our perfume oils are good for several years. We use rice bran oil as a carrier oil. Due to rice bran’s high anti-oxidant content, it has a very good shelf life.
Storing your oils appropriately will affect the shelf life. Be careful to store your Solstice Scents products, especially perfumes, out of direct sunlight and in a cool place as heat and light can age the products.
Safety Precautions for Pregnant or Nursing Mothers
Solstice Scent’s opinion is to avoid all fragranced and/or essential oil products while pregnant or nursing, especially in the first trimester. You may do your own research on the safety of using perfumes and fragrances while pregnant or nursing. Essential oils, fragrances and absolutes may pass into the bloodstream and may even cross the placental barrier. Not all oils are of concern, but Mothers should be cautious, especially in the first tri-mester. Some essential oils stimulate menstruation, are abortifacient, lower blood pressure and produce a myriad of other effects internally and externally and it is advised you exercise caution and be informed. Products which contain oils that we are aware should not be used while pregnant or nursing contain a warning at the top of the listing, above the description, though we still feel that unscented products are better for pregnant or nursing mothers. You may also wish to spray your perfumes conservatively on clothing instead of wearing them directly on the skin or try a few sprays of Glace combed through your dry hair or a little of the perfume oil rubbed in your hair.
About Solstice Scents
Solstice Scents started serving the local Gainesville, FL area in 2004. We originally sold soap, lotion, salts, candles, body oil, loose hand blended incense powders, dream pillows, eye pillows and neck pillows. We took our orders on order forms printed on parchment paper, hand wrote all of our tags and attached them with satin ribbon and
affixed our familiar mastic tree labels to bottles with rubber cement. Customers were able to select ala carte fresh made items directly off the order form, including customizing candle color or fabric choices. Bath salts were offered in upcycled Monin syrup bottles from the coffee shop Angela used to work at, topped with corks ordered from a wine supplier.
The business has evolved significantly since that time, though the same spirit, inspiration and aesthetic is infused into each item. While we no longer offer custom made items, all products are made with the same attention to detail and in small batches to ensure freshness. Our labels are designed in house with the original mastic tree
logo. The labels are applied by hand to the products. Each fragrance is still handwritten on the product label to this day.
