Kalmar is a holistic wellbeing brand rooted in spiritual self-discovery. The scented self-care products are created to realign the mind, soul, and body. Kalmar is founded by writer, dancer, and spiritual healer Karen Ruimy. Kalmar is centred around four soul states which guide every element of our existence – Joy, Calm, Peace, and Love. For all the four soul states – there is a full range of self-care products to shape the self-care ritual. The specific ranges not just enhance the mood focussing on that soul state but also uplift and rebalance the energy.
‘Kalmar is a combination of wellness, luxury and spirituality. It’s a way of being, a way of enjoying life. Everything comes from the same core of looking for the right energy and finding the authentic self.’ ~ Karen Ruimy
From fragrance balms and bath oils to body creams and candles – it truly is a range to inspire and heal not just the mind but also the body and soul. I have included a few Kalmar products in my everyday routine for a few days now and I feel they have truly made a positive effect on me.
Peace Balm of Serenity is a very beautiful balm scent that restores calm, grounds the spirit, and reconnects the mind and soul. I run a finger across the surface of the balm to soften, dab gently onto the pulse points and inhale deeply. It converts to a light, scented oil once massaged.
“Top notes of refreshing Bergamot complement a rich, relaxing heart of Vetiver, to quieten the mind, while Frankincense soothes the soul. Earthy, woody notes of heady Amber, earthy Benzoin and rich Moss restore peace and enhance spiritual awareness.”
For me personally, I feel this is a beautiful step in my every day, either before a meeting or after a hectic day when I want to relax and calm my mind. I have also used it before bed and it just makes the mind easy and the soul is light. The scent is not strong but very soft and subtle. The balm is very rich and nourishing without feeling heavy. The packaging is perfect to keep it on the desk or with you while on the go.
Love Sensual Senses Bath Oil is a very nourishing and hydrating bath oil. Once it meets the surface of the water, it transforms into light milk. The fragrance, feel, and aura it creates is perfect for a long soak in the bath, especially when I am in the mood of unwinding at the end of the day or especially the weekend. Skin feels hydrated, supple, and soft.
“Light yet crisp top notes of uplifting Bergamot and heady, seductive Jasmine make the soul dance, while sensual Ylang Ylang and precious Rose oils at the heart bring uplift and inspire positivity. Soft powdery musk, evocative Vanilla and heady Patchouli guide the soul to a place of lasting and inspiring connection.”
Calm Soothing Body Cream is a lightly whipped soufflé textured cream that nourishes and soothes the skin while its soft, relaxing scent calms the body and mind. It is my most reached out product for the body after the shower that calms and relaxes my mind while enhancing sleep. It absorbs quickly into the skin without feeling heavy and does not leave a residue on the skin.
“The scent evokes a Provençal garden in bloom, and celestial ozonic top notes create a sense of infinite balance. Soft floral heart notes of powdery Iris, calming violet and herbaceous Lavender marry with Woody Vetiver and rich Frankincense to comfort and restore, while base notes of green moss and warm Amber relieve the weight of the day.”
Joy Scented Candle is just beautiful, it brightens up space wherever I keep it in my place. Joy is a livid, enlivening scent that is gentle and has optimistic uplift of energy. It just fills the space with a beautiful warmth and happiness that is not superficial but is within, which can be compared to a beautiful summer evening for sure.
“A crisp lemon top note pairs perfectly with enlivening ginger and bergamot, bringing a hint of soul-warming spice. A heart of spirit-lifting Jasmine and heady Magnolia inspire the senses with beauty and joyousness, while soft White Musk nourishes the inner strength.”
Per the official handle, The scent and candle is great for awakening the sensation of bliss and gratitude within, creating the feeling of summer fun all year around, and for Cleansing and uplifting the energy in any room.
For the four soul states – Joy, Calm, Peace, and Love, there is a video for meditation for each on the official Kalmar website. Overall, the brand and the products are beautiful – I do feel they made a difference in the vibe around me to make me feel more me, positive, and comfortable in this unusual time we are in.
