Skin Care Spotlight: Blissoma Citrus Natural Deodorant Aromatic Spray



Applied to clean skin our multi-pronged formula works to control both the growth of odor causing bacteria on skin and also prevents your sweat from being broken down by those bacteria. Your sweat itself actually doesn't stink, it's the breakdown of sweat that is the problem. Triethyl Citrate works by inhibiting the enzymatic breakdown of sweat into parts that have an odor.

Because stink is a tough problem for a lot of people we also included many other ingredients to combat odor. Astringent Organic Witch Hazel, Green Tea, and Fennel tighten pores. A little Organic Castor Oil and Jojoba oils condition sensitive skin and leave you feeling smooth. The total formula is mild enough to be used even on freshly shaven underarms without irritation.

Our essential oil combinations all smell fantastic and add to the deodorizing activity of the formula. Three options are available in fresh blends themed on Lavender, Juniper and our new Citrus.


  • Completely updated NEW formulation!
  • Sprayable, mild and effective natural deodorant
  • Citrus scent with green tea, fennel and black cumin

About the company

Blissoma is the elegant marriage of herbal form and function: botanical innovations that really work. I am proud to bring you the result of nearly a decade of my life's work exploring the power of plants.

I began this path at age 23, when I graduated from college and found myself dealing with debilitating migraines that made it nearly impossible to retain a regular job. Slowly and steadily, I nursed myself back to health using botanicals to fortify and rebalance.

In applying this same persistence to skin care, I have spent hours poring over research, while breaking new ground to defy the limits set by stock formulations. A purist and perfectionist by nature, I have created a sophisticated, unique, and potent collection of products that proactively heal skin and enhance health.

At Blissoma, we have chosen to work with a much stricter ingredient palette than even most "natural" brands. The texture, color, and smell of our products tell the story of raw nature, hand-blended to perfection, and delivered to you.

Tea Spotlight: Dragonfly Moroccan Mint Organic Green Tea



An authentic blend of aromatic spearmint leaves and superior gunpowder green tea.

This wonderfully reviving brew is inspired by Morocco's rich tea-drinking tradition. The tea-maker's craft lies in perfectly balancing the natural sweetness of the spearmint with the brisk, slightly smokey notes of the gunpowder tea. In Morocco, where it is served throughout the day, both between and during meals, every cup is said to be a refreshing surprise. The tea is typically poured into small glasses from great height, thereby adding a certain theatre to the occasion and gently aerating the honey coloured liquor. The name 'gunpowder' comes from the appearance of the grey-green tea leaves, which are traditionally rolled by hand into tiny pellets that resemble gunpowder.

This clean and refreshing tea is particularly delicious at the end of the meal.

20 individually sealed string & tag sachets (40g)



Why Dragonfly?
The beautiful dragonfly is our muse. It inspires, dazzles and delights us. A symbol of purity, vitality and harmony throughout the world, the playful yet determined dragonfly mirrors our company ethos. Dragonflies love sunshine, warmth and clear, pure water. We believe the same elements are required for creating a truly fine cup of tea. To reflect this, each of our speciality and rooibos tea packets is adorned with a vibrant watercolour painting of a dragonfly in mid-flight. We hope you like the design as much as we do!



About the Company
At Dragonfly, we are a family-owned, British company with a hundred year heritage of sourcing, growing and making the very purest and finest of teas. We travel the globe to find artisanal and often rare brews, some from remote gardens, and some from the most renowned tea makers. We are passionate about introducing tea lovers to new, quality tea experiences and were the first to put such favourites such as rooibos, white tea and honeybush on Britain’s high street.

Crowdfunding Spotlight: oPhone DUO Aromatic Mobile Messaging


What is the oPhone?
The oPhone is a revolutionary device that, in combination with our free iPhone app “oSnap”, allows you to send and receive electronic aroma messages. Think of it as a kind of telephone for aromas. With the oPhone, you can now bring complex scent texting into your mobile messaging life, and share sensory experience with anyone, anywhere.




Why would I want an oPhone?
Think about what happens when you walk into a great cafe, experience a terrific meal, or walk on an amazing beach. Beyond the terrific sights and sounds there are the magical aromas. And it turns out that aromas do something to our minds and bodies that sounds and sights simply cannot. They elicit memories, diminish stress, and excite our emotions. Imagine sharing these memories and emotions with friends. This is what the oPhone allows you to do. Are you a foodie? A coffee lover? Ever take a picture of a memorable culinary experience? With the oPhone your experience can live on. Inside each oPhone is an "aromatic vocabulary". This is what allows you to create over 300,000 unique aroma combinations. Not only is it powerful, it is also beautifully designed and will look great wherever you decide to put it.



What’s in it for me?
If you support our campaign, you are welcome to attend our launch party in Paris at Le Laboratoire on June 19th - party starts at 7pm.
During our Indiegogo campaign, the oPhone DUO is available for a reduced price - $149 rather than $199 for commercial launch next year.
We are offering free shipping to first supporters! (See details on individual perks)
We’re out to create the world’s first community that is communicating digitally with aromas - and this will be possible because of you. This is Thomas Edison stuff, and you’ll be one of the first in the world to try this!

With your support, we’ll be able to launch our tooling / first full production run and get these into your hands so we can get your feedback on how we can do an even better job of capturing and sharing the world around us.



History of the oPhone
David Edwards teaches a class at Harvard called “How to Create Things and Have Them Matter”. The class is commonly oversubscribed, as it brings together students from a variety of disciplines to focus on realizing blue sky dreams. Rachel Field, a mechanical engineering undergrad, signed up for the class in 2012, never thinking she’d be launching a commercial product with her professor 2 years later. David encouraged Rachel and her classmates to think about creating a virtual world of aroma. The idea evolved over the summer in Paris.

After she graduated in 2012, Rachel moved to Paris with her Harvard classmate Amy Yin to continue work on developing the oPhone with David. Designers Baptiste Viala and Laurent Milon of Studio Milimetre joined the project shortly thereafter. By the next spring a first oPhone, a small device able to generate just a few aromas, was exhibited at David's Laboratoire in Paris. This was a good start as a proof-of-concept, but there was still more work to do.

Over the summer, David & Rachel figured out the key to eventually making a much more powerful oPhone, one that would ultimately be able to reproduce any aroma, and be carried in your pocket. With the "oChip" in hand, they worked with Laurent and Baptiste to create a second oPhone for David's talk at the Wired conference in London in October of 2013. See Tech Crunch review.

The oPhone DUO is our first commercial oPhone. It contains a set of revolutionary oChips inside of it. We made this first oPhone for a table or countertop.


How it Works
The oPhone DUO is able to diffuse over 300,000 unique aromas thanks to the small, inexpensive circular cartridges we call oChips, that fit inside the device. The oPhone DUO works with 8 oChips and each oChip contains 4 aromas - so the oPhone DUO works with 32 primitive aromas. They last for hundreds of uses, sort of like link cartridges, but for aroma. You can swap them in and out and capture any scent for which we have designed an oChip. And while we are starting with oChip families (what we call "aromatic vocabularies") around specific foodie and coffee experiences, we will soon be diversifying these in exciting ways.

Using oSnap with oPhone is like using an aroma palette with a paintbrush and canvas. You will want to try your hand at it, or as we say, "aroma doodle". And with the oPhone, you'll quickly get the hang of how it all works.

Drink Review: Hella Bitter Aromatic and Citrus Bitters



Hella Bitter is an all-natural craft bitters company committed to being the premium alternative to mass-produced and often artificially flavored competitors. What began in the early 2000s as a hobby with roots in the Bay area, turned serious in 2011 when Hella Bitter was founded in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. With a modest Kickstarter.com fundraising project, pools of sweat, and a big dream, Hella Bitter went from being a weekend project, to being a serious pursuit of the delicious.

Now that Hella Bitter manufactures in East Harlem’s Hot Bread Kitchen and utilizes co-packing services at Long Island City’s Bad Ass Organic, the Brooklyn project has blossomed into a true NYC company, with commitment to quality in all practices. Our goal is to reach the broad audience of food & cocktail lovers while maintaining the quality of our artisan craftsmanship and delivering bitter deliciousness everywhere.

We offer two flavors: Citrus and Aromatic.

Citrus is the bitters that started it all, and we have refined a recipe that consistently outshines other orange bitters on the market. It is slightly more concentrated, and more noticeably citrusy than other bitters in its class. This is because our small-batch approach enables us to carefully regulate the different flavors and prevent any one from overpowering the others.

Perhaps the rockstar of the bunch, our Aromatic consists of more intriguing ingredients and stronger flavors to make a bitters that can stand up to the biggest bourbon whiskeys, but is still delicate enough to give subtle support to a gin cocktail. It gets its color from the beet juice that we use to help sweeten it.

We want to change the way people think about their beverages. We want people to use our product to make their food and drinks a little bit bitter. Whether that’s a classic cocktail or a tasteful marinade, we think Hella Bitter has the potential to bring much more awareness to the world of bitters, and to help sophisticate the American palette. We’re starting small, and we’re dreaming big.
