Pairfum Innocent Vanilla Reed Diffuser Review*

FullSizeRender-6

I love all things smelly, (good smelly of course). I am constantly trying out new scented candles and air fresheners. The only thing is…I’m rather allergic to a lot of things. So, I was looking for something which would keep my room smelling fresh and inviting without making my skin and eyes itch!

I was very kindly sent the Pairfum Large Reed Diffuser (£37.50) in the ‘Innocent Vanilla’ scent from the lovely people are Pairfum. The diffuser contains 250ml of fragrance which is composed of natural and organic essential oils that are non-toxic, non-flammable and non-carcinogenic. The perfume oil in the diffuser is non-VOC which is safer to use and VOC oils are not healthy for the lungs and they deplete the ozone layer so this one is much safer to use and better for the environment as it is contains a non-VOC fragrance oil.

I had absolutely no negative reactions to this, so was really pleased. It also fit really well into my newly decorated room.

The bell shape bottle and black looks really classy and simple. The box it arrived in was lovely, so would making an excellent gift for someone.

The scent is also just as classy and simple, it isn’t overpowering sweet fake vanilla smell, like a lot of scents. It is clean and smooth vanilla. You can change the intensity of the scent depending on how many reeds you use. I’ve been using five, but since I like the smell so much I’m thinking of putting in the rest of the reeds.  The more reeds you use and how often you turn them, the stronger the fragrance will be.

The diffuser should last between 6 to 9 months which sounds fantastic, so really it is rather economical compared to ‘cheaper ones’.

Pairfum offer a range of perfume products, such as candles, perfumed botanicals, room and linen sprays. Not only do they add a wonderful smell to your house, but they can be part of the overall decor. I will certainly be buying some other products from the range and cannot wait to try some of their other scents!

*this product was gifted to me, but all the opinions are honest and my own.

Vegan Golden Milk

In my quest to find nice recipes using anti-inflammatory ingredients to combat my rosacea and soothe my tummy, I have come across this lovely bed time treat. It uses turmeric, which has many health benefits.

‘According to the website for the U.S. National Library of Medicine, turmeric is most commonly used to treat cancer, as a blood thinner, for upset stomach relief, gall stone prevention, to lower high cholesterol, as an inflammation remedy, for liver protection, therapy for irritable bowel syndrome, to treat rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, as stomach ulcer therapy, viral infection remedy, treatment for inflammation of the eye and scabies. The National Center for Complementary & Alternative Medicine website adds that turmeric is also applied directly to the skin to treat skin conditions. This would be the way to use turmeric to treat rosacea.’ Read more here

I don’t/can’t use dairy or soya milk, so my favourite is almond. I really like Almond Breeze Reduced Sugar, because it’s quite subtle but still a good creamy taste. You can use whichever milk is your favourite.

For this Golden Milk I use:

Cup of Almond Breeze Reduced Sugar

Tea Spoon of Turmeric

Cinnamon Stick or a Tea Spoon of Ground Cinnamon

A Dash of Vanilla Extract

I also like to add a vanilla pod to the pan.

You can also add coconut oil if you wish.

Enjoy 🙂
