Anti-bad-mood sprays™ Are a Return Hit for Holiday Gifts and Office Secret Santa

 Dwight Schrute prepares for the holidays. 

It’s that time again. Ugh. Your mother will, once again, yell across the Thanksgiving dinner table, "When are you two going to stop using birth control, already?!"

If you don't come up with exactly the right gift for Raul in accounting he'll see that you never get your expense checks back in time to pay the credit card bills.

A big hit last season, anti-bad-mood sprays™ are the perfect fit for this year's holiday gifts.

Aromatherapy mood sprays are an inexpensive, creative gift for office, family, friends

The Antidote for Ego™, Apathy™, Passive™ and Aggressive™ are custom blended sprays that battle common bad moods. Priced under $20 each, with eco-luxe packaging, they are perfect for everyone – the hostess, the office gift exchange, your family, your mailman.

“There really isn’t anyone who doesn’t need at least one anti-bad-mood spray™,” says Heidi Rettig, CEO of HR Products. “Everyone can use a bottle in a shared restroom to tamp down, um … smells. Stock up before the dysfunctional family members arrive for Thanksgiving dinner. There’s no shame in buying in bulk.”

The products are certified vegan and their essential oils are organically sourced, whenever possible. Apathy™ is the most popular product on the website. The scent of fresh peeled grapefruit, with a hint of green, naturally freshens the air and enhances memory and concentration.

“I ship more bottles of anti-Passive™ to New York City than anywhere else in our great nation,” Rettig says. “Something I wouldn’t have predicted based on my experience of the way New Yorkers behave in the taxi line outside Grand Central Station.”

HR Products' Statement on Animal Testing

 

 

Our anti-bad-mood sprays are tested on people, not animals.

HR Products LLC does not test products on animals or use source materials and ingredients that have been tested on animals.We are certified Vegan by Vegan Action.

The ingredients in each anti-bad-mood spray are natural and safe to use. Essential oils are organically sourced, wherever possible. Unlike most commercial room sprays, our products are free of formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and phthalates. They are hand-blended in Winchester, Virginia.

Each mood lifting spray is minimally packaged. Our lightweight aluminum bottle has a label printed on a biodegradable, synthetic “paper.” The bottle tops are 100 percent recyclable. Our website provides instructions for cleaning the bottles and suggestions for reuse.

It costs more to do things this way. Especially if you’re a small company. But at the end of the day, I go to bed knowing I’ve put something out in the world that makes people happier – not just because of the essential oils inside each spray. I make products that won’t compromise the health of customers, their families, pets, or the environment. I make products that people fall in love with and can’t live without.

That feels so much better than a big paycheck.

– Heidi Rettig, CEO

Mother's Day Gift Ideas for Dysfunctional Families.

 

Let's be real. Not everyone has the kind of mother that warrants the delivery of FTD’s Best Mom Ever™ bouquet! There’s no greeting card that says, “Mom, the years you didn’t speak to me were the best years of my life.”If only there were a web shop called the "Guilt" Group.

But it’s not just the social mandate on Mother’s Day gift giving that's so stressful. It’s the ham dinner ritual children are forced to attend each year. All through brunch you listen to your Mom tell you how “proud” she is of your doctor sister and how “relieved” she is that you, a Humanities major, “finally turned out o.k.”

Sitting there pushing the restaurant’s non-Vegan food to the edges of the plate your teenage dreams -- of running away to 1980’s New York City to wait tables for 90 hours a week at a Chinese restaurant to pay for a tiny apartment with a tub in the “kitchen” and just enough room for a twin mattress and a giant can of roach spray -- still sound pretty good, actually.

HR Products' mood lifting aromatherapy sprays are great gifts for less-than-perfect Moms - and their children. You're never too old. Each scent is a blend of essential oils chosen to elicit a positive emotional response to apathy, narcissism, passive and aggressive behaviors.

For Mother's Day, 2012, customers who purchase a bottle of Passive™ aromatherapy mood lifting spray will receive a full-sized bottle of Aggressive™ at half price. That's a $19.99 value for just half of $19.99.

Also through May 13, 2012, customers who purchase any anti bad mood spray will receive a 3 ml glass mini-mister bottle. "Ideally, you would not whip out an 8 oz. bottle of The Antidote for Ego™ at your brother's birthday party," says Heidi Rettig, CEO of HR Products. "This mini-mister is the perfect compromise."

And Father's Day is just around the corner.
