CLEARWATER, Fla., Jan. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Infusion Brands International, Inc. (Infusion Brands) (Pink Sheets:INBI) and Therascent Products LLC (Therascent) today announced a licensing agreement whereby Infusion Brands holds the worldwide exclusive license to manufacture and sell products that incorporate Therascent’s patented technology, which include the Sleep Scentsations brand and its flagship product, SnoreRx, as well as the entire Therascent product line.

“Therascent spent a long time looking for the right partner to help educate the world about our patented products, which enhance the air people breathe while they sleep, providing a better night’s rest so they can lead more fulfilling and productive lives,” said Lynne Sammons, president of Therascent Products LLC. “This is a significant step forward for Therascent. We’re proud to be working with Infusion Brands to help us achieve our long term goals.”

According to BCC Research, the worldwide sleep aids market reached revenues of $25 billion in 2009, and are anticipated to reach $33.2 billion in 2014. Sleep Scentsations’ patented sleep aid products will look to gain market share by leveraging the unique combination of a natural and non-invasive solution to combat sleeplessness and its side effects, such as sleep deprivation, irritability and drowsiness.

Sleep Scentsations products are a newly patented, non-invasive sleep aid delivery system to distribute essential oils without the mess that often comes with essential oil based products. This patented technology consists of a soft cushioned pillow liner, infused with a combination of natural aromatherapy essential oils, which lasts for 4 to 6 nights. As you sleep, the air you breathe is naturally enhanced by the essential oils to provide you with the proper night’s rest, relaxation, and relief from common sleep disorders such as snoring and insomnia.

“We’re very excited to bring Therascent Products into the Infusion Brands family,” said Bob DeCecco, chairman and CEO of Infusion Brands. “This is a terrific brand that is well positioned to realize its potential by leveraging direct to consumer marketing efforts such as direct response television, radio, print, catalogue, ecommerce as well as traditional retail channels of distribution worldwide. We believe this is an exceptional product that could offer relief to millions of people around the world who suffer from poor and inadequate sleep.”

Infusion Brands will launch Sleep Scentsations’ flagship product, SnoreRx, via a direct response television campaign during the first quarter of 2012. The patented SnoreRx pillow liner is infused with a therapeutic blend of essential oils formulated to provide relief from snoring without the need for aggravating nose strips, bad tasting sprays or cumbersome mouthpieces.

“Infusion Brands provides marketing insight, performance and commitment to delivering high quality products to its customers,” Sammons continued. “With their approach to building global brands through direct response media channels, we are confident that we will be able to realize the global potential of the Sleep Scentsations brand and our entire line of “Rx” products, beginning with SnoreRx.”

In today’s stress-filled world, a visit to a spa can provide much-needed rejuvenation for body and soul. While there is no substitute for being pampered by someone else’s hands, you need not spend a small fortune to experience the benefits of a day or two at the spa. In fact, you can create a near-professional spa experience in your own home. All you need is the desire and bit of equipment.

Your Equipment Checklist
Your first step is to assemble a list of locally available products that will replicate those used in the finest spas. And don’t forget to pamper yourself with classic, elegant spa garb — a luxuriously thick white terrycloth robe.

A home spa experience should include products and tools to revitalize the body, face and hair. Here is a short checklist:

  1. Long handled natural bristle bath brush
  2. Loofah or Terry cloth washcloth (Avoid synthetic scrubbers as they are overly harsh)
  3. Bath salts
  4. A selection of essential aromatic oils
  5. Anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory cleansers, toners and moisturizers (more on this later)
  6. Coarse sea salt
  7. Plenty of chilled spring water (with a splash of lime or lemon) to keep your body hydrated and to eliminate toxins from the inside out.

The Role of Essential Oils
Essential oils, made from the petals of flowers, are extremely beneficial for the skin. In addition to being pleasantly scented, these oils regulate the activity of the capillaries and restore vitality to the tissues. In addition, floral oils rejuvenate the skin, eliminate waste matter and facilitate the regeneration of new, healthy cells.

Never apply essential oils directly to the face or skin. Add about six drops to a bowl of warm water. Soak a cotton cloth in the water and then apply to face and neck as a compress for five minutes. Repeat three times. Gently towel dry the face and neck and apply an anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory facial splash and activator.

For sensitive skin, try a product like Sleep Scentsations Aromatherapy Pillow liners infused with natural essential oils to get the same relaxing effects of essential oils without having to have them touch your skin directly.

The remarkable and very scary changes our bodies undergo during pregnancy lead to many discomforts.  Just the morning sickness and fatigue is enough to lower a pregnant woman’s spirits.  And since nearly all medicines and traditional remedies are off-limits to expecting moms, natural methods come as a great relief to help ease these symptoms.

While some pregnant women feel great during pregnancy, this is unfortunately not the case for many.  In addition to proper nutrition and regular exercise, the use of herbs and aromatherapy during the later part of your pregnancy can alleviate many common complaints.

Note: as recommended for most things, it is important that you do not use essential oils during the first trimester of your pregnancy. However, they have many wonderful uses in the last two trimesters and especially during labor.  Most importantly, inhaling essential oils rather than directly applying them to your skin,  is the safest method  to positively affect your overall physical and emotional well-being.

The most frequently used scents for pregnancy are:

  • Lavender
    restores unbalanced states to a more harmonious state, and has been said to strengthen contractions. Also helps calm the irritated, fretful or nervous person.
  • Bergamot A “ray of sunshine.” This is said to be uplifting, light and refreshing.

Sleep Scentsations Aromatherapy Pillow Liners are the safest aromatherapy diffusers and you can take them with you everywhere you go.  Including the hospital – ANYTHING to help with that crazy thing called Labor!
