The Aroma Bloom. Cool Mist Diffuser by Day: Baby Whisper by Night.

The Aroma Bloom. Cool Mist Diffuser by Day: Baby Whisper by Night.

As a working mummy of three there are very few things that put fear into my heart then the call I received on Wednesday – the daycare summon. After four-years experience with my eldest, we are old friends with the dreaded crèche-flu, but by some miracle have managed to avoid anything too sinister. That was until we recently enrolled our 11-month-old twin girls in a local centre. A mere two weeks into their daycare debut and I was called with the news that not one, but both of my gorgeous girls had succumbed to a nasty virus. And you know it's bad when you can't even pay someone to bubba-sit (FYI – that's a joke).

So home we went, stopping briefly at our local chemist for the necessary ointments and medications, but try as we might, despite all our usual tricks and parenting wisdom (cough cough) nothing seemed to help our bubbas feel anything other than lousy. And golly, did they let us know. Because if one sick and upset baby is loud – two is a natural disaster. And my girls were a tsunami of discomfort… and boogers.

Enter the UN of vaporisers – The Aroma Bloom Ultrasonic Cool Mist Diffuser. A mouthful to say and the best friend of this sleep-deprived mumma. Even the warm glow that this baby-whispering wonder emits seems to have a halo-like quality, but I digress. With both girls producing a cough so husky it belonged in a low-lit and smoke filled bar, we stood in the face of another sleepless night and plugged in the Bloom.

Now what you need to understand is before discovering the Aroma Bloom we were simple people, from simple times, AKA our idea of a vaporiser was our retired rice cooker filled with water and a few drops of eucalyptus oil. True story. But despite our misgivings, I will happily admit a truth known to most: Not all diffusers are alike. And the Aroma Bloom is in a class of its own. Within a minute of its cool mist filling the room the air began to feel refreshed and clean, a difficult task to accomplish in any musty bedroom, let alone where two babies worth of nappies are changed every day. Not for the Bloom, between the warm adjustable light and beautiful scent of Child Calming Remedy (Lively Living's organic essential oil blend), Josh and I found ourselves relaxing, like the whole room had taken a deep breath. It was then we realised; our girls were silent. No coughing, no tears, just the sound of two precious poppets fast asleep, their little breaths unlaboured except for the occasional snore. Because like all superheroes, the Aroma Bloom made its presence felt but not heard, while all the while adding a certain elegance, with its design easily passing for a gorgeous piece of art. And nothing says superhero like an attractive disguise – I'm thinking of you, Clark Kent.

I'd like to report that the girls slept soundly, but unfortunately, that was not the case. Eight hours and 200ml of cold water later, Aroma stopped, and like an alarm, our girls awoke, until the water was replenished and we discovered another fabulous feature – the 18hr intermittent setting. Because not only is the Bloom pretty, baby safe (no heat source means NO HOT WATER) she's also clever, allowing you to choose just how long you would like her to work. And yes I've decided she's a her because only a woman could do so much at the same time and not even raise a sweat – literally, her mist is as cool and calm as she is.

So thank you, Aroma Bloom, you are a nurse, a day spa, a warm light of reassurance, and from now, a permanent feature of my daughters' bedroom. I'm sorry dear rice cooker, but it's over, there's a new vaporiser in town, and she's stolen my heart.

Your Laundry Detergents Dirty Little Secret...

January 19, 2018

‘Bulking agents’ are not just for body builders and ‘fillers’ are not just for cracks. Unfortunately they are both polluting your laundry and effecting your health and chances are, you don't even realise. Unless you’ve looked further than the back of your laundry detergent box, you will be shocked to find out what they actually contain. I know I was. Not shocked actually. More like horrified. Granular bulking agents and fillers are awful and they're added to laundry detergents to make their volume larger and give you the perception that you are getting...
