Founded by a mother and daughter duo, Madison + Green is an aromatherapy brand that creates modern stress-relieving tools that are highly effective, highly portable, all-natural, and super chic. And, the best part? They have a line of aromatherapy inhales designed especially for kids, because sometimes our little ones need a bit of extra help de-stressing and being mindful.
I love aromatherapy, especially when I meditate. I thought these Madison + Green aromatherapy inhalers were perfect for caretakers and littles when you only have a moment to ground yourself. -Julia
