Meet Giselle Wasfie: former Glamour magazine editor turned acupuncturist. The bubbly Chicago-based healer’s studio is a safe haven for curing what ails you. Whether it be acupuncture, herbal medicine, cupping or Reiki, Giselle’s knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine combined with charming bedside manner make for an instant energy upgrade. But wait! There’s something new! Are you practically on pins and needles? Giselle’s latest endeavor takes her classic training and brings it smack-dab into your home. Meet Remix Aromatherapy, a line of five 2 ounce scents aimed to bring Giselle’s studio to wherever you need it. From calming nerves with Chill to eliminating negativity with Cleanse, the collection is as useful as it is well-designed.
We catch up with Giselle to talk style, beauty and the launch of Remix Aromatherapy. And just so you know: you might have to look up where your Thalamus is, too.
Q: We’re digging this aromatherapy line. Give us the scoop.
A: The sense of smell is the most powerful of all Five Senses, as it is the only one that passes straight to the memory cortex without going through the other areas of the brain first (the other four have to pass through the thalamus first). For example, when I get a whiff of Calvin Klein’s Eternity, I immediately go back to 8th grade, yikes! My all-natural aromatherapy is an organic extension REMIX’s holistic healing beliefs and lifestyle approach to overall wellness. It’s yet another tool to manage the challenges of modern life from a natural approach, as needed and on the spot, sensually.
Q: Play favorites: what’s your favorite scent from the new collection?
