The Soothing Company

Mini Moonshadow Tabletop Water Fountain

soothlogo

   I have always been a person who has had a hard time managing the way I deal with stress and emotional events.  I have always let too much get to me, and as I get older, I am quickly realizing the necessity of finding better ways to cope with and eliminate stress from my life.   While I have always been aware of and interested in various schools of belief on dealing with and eliminating stress, I am just recently finding myself really wanting and needing to incorporate these methods into my life and environment.  Some of these methods include following the basic guidelines of Fung Shui when arranging my home, keeping my surroundings organized and non-chaotic, using the art of aromatherapy, taking quiet moments to myself when possible, practicing yoga and more. I am also finding myself amazed to realize exactly how large a role your immediate environment can play in your mood;  how what you see, hear and smell can deeply effect how you feel.

 I recently had the wonderful opportunity to review an item from this fantastic site called The Soothing Company.  The Soothing Company is a great online store which focuses on products meant to add soothing elements to your home and life.  They offer everything from water fountains to bonsai trees, aquariums to ventless fireplaces, mattress toppers to bean bag chairs and many other items of relaxation for both the inside and outside of your home.  In keeping with my attempt to make our home more of a relaxing and stress-free environment, I choose to review one of their tabletop water fountains.  They have an incredible selection, and choosing just one was quite the challenge!  After much debate, I finally decided on what has turned out to be the perfect fountain for our home!

 The fountain I chose is the Mini Moonshadow Tabletop Water Fountain which I have placed in our den.  It is a two tier fountain in that a smaller bowl sits inside a larger bowl.  From inside the smaller bowl a curved piece of metal arches up and over the water, and there are holes in this piece from which the water flows down over a piece of slate which is suspended from the metal arch.  The water flowing down the face of the slate then falls into the river rock-filled smaller bowl, which then overflows into the larger bowl.  Inside the smaller bowl, beneath the rocks is a ring of LED lights which cast a golden glow through the rocks and onto the slate and the falling water making it sparkle.  If you turn off the lights and look at the fountain in the darkness, the pattern of the light on the slate, and the watery glow reflected on the ceiling, is reminiscent of shadows in the moonlight.

  The entire fountain is a copper/bronzed color, and the slate is a mixture of browns and grays;  lending even more of an outdoor, natural feeling to the fountain.    This beautiful fountain provides a much needed escape from the noises of city life.  There is something incredibly relaxing and, well, soothing, about the sound of trickling water.   When I come home and listen to it in the quiet room, the sound of the water trickling onto the rocks reminds me of the creek I used to play around when I was a child.  It makes it so much easier to clear my mind of the troubles and worries of the day when I focus on the sounds of the water and the patterns of light.

  The fountain measures around 12.5” in diameter, 13” in height and 12.5” in width, and weighs around 6 pounds, making it the perfect size for an end table, coffee table or bookcase.   Unlike many tabletop fountains, this one comes with a switch on the cord allowing you to turn it on and off.   It did come un-assembled in the box, but was very simple to put together by following the clear and detailed instructions in the included booklet.  You do not have to have any tools to assemble it, but I found having a pair of pliers nearby came in handy for when I had to tighten two small pieces.  The only problem I encountered was a bit of misguiding information in the instructions telling you to set the pump to its highest setting during assembly.  It wasn’t until after I had the fountain together and running that I noticed the water wasn’t running as smoothly as the picture suggested, and it was splashing off the rocks and over the sides.  At first, I tried rearranging the rocks as the instructions suggested with no noticeable difference.  Then, a bit further along in the instruction booklet, it said to be sure the pump was NOT set to its highest setting.  So I had to unplug the fountain, remove the rocks, and get to the pump to turn it down a bit. Once I did that, and rearranged the rocks, the fountain worked perfectly without any splashing!

 This has truly become one of my favorite features in our home, and I am so happy with it, that I cannot wait to get another fountain for our bedroom!  The Soothing Company offers ventless fireplaces, bean bag chairs,  water fountains and more.  All of the products they carry are high quality and made by top brands, and they can be purchased directly through The Soothing Company’s website.  Plus, they offer free shipping and no tax in most states!
   The Soothing Company is also on Facebook and Twitter where you can find more information on their products, promotions and more!

I could definitely use a bit of soothing right about now--and I always liked standing near waterfalls-this sounds like it would be perfect for me.

I use white noise each night for bed as an app. This is so much more attractive though. Thanks for sharing!

That's a very neat fountain! My only gripe about fountains is that trickling water can sometimes make you feel like you need to go to the bathroom. LOL

That looks so soothing and perfect in my room. I say in my room since otherwise my cats would use it as a drinking fountain.

I LOVE fountains like this! We usually have multiple fountains like this around our house, until we moved to our newest home. It's just not laid out well to allow for a flat surface to place these on. I miss my fountains.

That is beautiful! I would love to have that sitting on my table in the living room it would be so soothing. I love the sound of a waterfountain. :)

This is beautiful, great review thanks for sharing. I love the soft sounds of water to relax, I have a large fish tank and it drives my husband crazy, but I would love this!
