21drops_DailyDoseFor as far back as she can remember, Cary Caster has been spirited away by both plants and nature. From the orange trees she loved to climb as a child in Miami to the desert scrub of the Utah wilderness she explored as a teenager, Ms. Caster was never one for staying indoors.  Caster, a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist, botanist credits these roots in her lifelong study of essential oil therapy and its blending. An early vocation as a Massage Therapist provided her a perfect window to witness the incredibly effective properties of natural essential oils.  From her mission to widen the circles and show the world how to naturally achieve a healthier mind and body, 21 drops essential oil therapy was hatched.

Beyond their rainbow packaging, 100% natural pure and potent plan extracts and signature rollerball on applicators, what makes 21 drops stand out from the pack is their targeted benefits.  Anxious, moody, menopause?  They’ve got your number  with one of their 21 blends.  Their Daily Dose trio (pictured above) is a snapshot of their symptom specific therapy.  Deep purple (number 01) invigorates.  Pear green (number 09) encourages focus.  And, grape (number 18) induces sleep.  Tell me one person who could not use a boost in one of these areas?

21 drops initially called out to on display at the Spa at Topnotch in Stowe, Vermont.  So jolly, perched there among the more muted skincare and other products which pamper.  Then I discovered their compact design and innovative roller ball application – don’t let the term “drop” fool you.  A common deterrent in traveling with essential oils can be the spill off from the traditional packaging.  21 drops has got portion control covered with their novel packaging.  Perfect for tossing in to a beach tote, backpack, yoga bag or purse!

The complete product line from 21 drops can be purchased through their website and in retail outlets throughout the country such as Miraval, the Shop at Kripalu and at The shop at Tower Hill at the Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston.
