Review: Tazeka Aromatherapy Oils

When I first stumbled upon Tazeka Aromatherapy on Instagram, I was blown away by their brand vision, gorgeous packaging, and complex, elegant blends. Created by Zena Hallam, a certified aromatherapist, reflexologist, and modern day alchemist, Tazeka was borne out of a desire to provide transformative, healing experiences for people through aromatherapy.

Says Zena, “I think natural healing is in my blood. And the mark of a healer is, we want to help everyone we can. That’s why I created Tazeka.”

While I haven’t yet spoken with Zena, I had the absolute pleasure of corresponding with Tazeka’s designer, Kristina. We were able to connect on a very personal level with a struggle that we both shared. I’m choosing to keep the details of our conversation private at the moment, but needless to say, I was thrilled to be able to connect with someone in a deep and meaningful way. Shared joy is a double joy, shared sorrow is half a sorrow, as they say.

Kristina graciously offered to send me three 8ml fragrances of my choice. I chose Nonstop Thoughts, Headache Helper, and Wise Woman because I was particularly intrigued by and unfamiliar with many of the essential oils used in these formulations.

Tazeka Aromatherapy Nonstop Thoughts Orange Rollerball

Tazeka Wise Woman Aromatherapy Rollerball

scent profile

  • elegant and grounded, read: I am woman, hear me roar
  • earthy notes of black spruce and ho wood effortlessly blend with softer, more feminine notes of rose and neroli
  • base notes reveal mildly sweet lavender

ingredients: black spruce, geranium, petitgrain bigarade, neroli, rose absolute, lavender, tocopherol in pure jojoba, linalool*, limomene*, geraniol*, citronellol*, and benzyl alcohol*.

*naturally occurring within essential oils

Overall, the quality of these oils are incredible. I was a bit apprehensive as to whether an oil-based fragrance would feel greasy, but it sinks into the skin beautifully and doesn’t stain! The applicator is a rollerball, so you can control how much product you want to dispense. The staying power of these blends is also impressive — the scents linger without being cloying. My favorite is Nonstop Thoughts because I’m such a sucker for cardamom. Next comes Headache Helper, followed by Wise Woman. Hoping these other two scents grow on me; we’ll see. I’m very curious to try the other scents this brand offers and would definitely recommend it!
