Q: I have a very demanding, high-stress job and have trouble unwinding once I go home. What can you suggest to help me relax and de-stress once I leave work each day?

A: Change out of your work clothes, light a candle, put on a relaxing CD & curl up on the couch with a cup of soothing Chamomile tea, after applying the "Scent of Samadhi."

Samadhi (sa-mah-dee) means the inexpressible pure bliss of union with the Divine.

Scent of Samadhi is an ancient, herbal, all-natural deodorant powder used by the yogis of South India. It is an effective fragrance that works along with the body natural aroma to create a fragrance of inspiration, bliss, optimism and calm. - Worn & appreciated by both women and men - Magically uplifting! - Deepens yoga, meditation, healing and calm.

Each jar of Scent of Samadhi comes in a beautiful cloth pouch made from the traditional South Indian sari material. These pouches are sewn in India as part of a project to provide a means of livelihood for women from broken homes and the physically challenged individuals.
