Lady Bug Diffuser Green Beauty: new ways to enjoy aromatherapy

If you like the idea of going green at home, then aromatherapy probably appeals to you too. However, I’m not talking about the typical scented candles or essential oil burners. Instead, think minimalist chic scent diffusers, like this Lady Bug Diffuser from 365 Days. I had a fun time watching how the green leaf slowly absorbed the Jasmine Ylang scented oil and filled the whole room with the lovely scent. And you know what? I’ve secured five of these worth about S$100 to be included in the VivaBella Green Beauty Box Giveaway of goodies for five of you!

Mineral oil, a clear, odorless, and inexpensive oil distilled from crude oil, is a common ingredient in skin care products. It is sometimes referred to as Paraffinum Liquidum or Petrolatum in the ingredient list. Although it sounds really ‘crude’, several cult beauty brands such as Nivea and La Mer feature this oil prominently in their skin care formulations. And despite the origin, the mineral oil used in skin care formulations are really of refined, cosmetic grade.
