All the ingredients you'll need for a cosy season at home
The days are once again getting shorter and you’re reaching for those autumn comforts again - a blanket on the sofa, a cup of tea in hand, and of course the Great British Bake Off on the telly.
But before you start eyeing those Christmas decorations in the cupboard (we see you), let’s steady ourselves for Halloween and the autumn months that follow.
Here are our cosy autumn essentials that will help see you through the season, from a warming de-stress tea that will have you sleeping like a baby, to the subtly seasonal scent of a Pine Tree wafting through your living room..
Heal yourself with a warming brew
Whether you’re fighting the autumn sniffles , feeling anxious, dealing with menstrual pain, or hoping for a mind and body reset... we’ve got you.
We know that a cup of tea can’t solve everything, but we've certainly harnessed the power of some of the world’s most potent natural remedies to help you along the way.
So if you're prone to anxiety at this time of the year then why not save yourself from having a nightmare before Christmas by trying our very own de-stress tea programme, with a specialised range to choose from.
If you’re struggling to get a full night’s rest try our Sweet Dreams De-stress tea, which has been proven to see real results within 14 days of following the de-stress programme (3 cups a day - morning, noon, and night).
For those struggling to fight off a virus our Breathe freely formula will help to open your airways, and can also help with the symptoms of an itchy cough, sore throat, bad breath, u and tightness.
And if you’re struggling with bad skin, menstrual pain, bad breath or general inflammation, support your body with our Star Mix. A blend of coarsely cut licorice, lots of star anise, fennel, aniseed and juniper berries refreshed with peppermint.
Celebrate the season with scents
If you want to celebrate the change in season without being overly festive, try setting up an essential oil diuser in the most used room in your home.
A mist of our Winter Fairytale blend provides emotional warmth and security during these colder days, whilst the Pine Tree oil or Coniferous forest blend will introduce those nostalgic smells of nature ahead of the festive season.
Not only will you find the deliciously sweet autumnal scents such as Cinnamon, Bergamot, Peppermint, or Sandalwood, draw the family into one room to spend time together, in many cases they will also help with a massively varied range of ailments.
If you do pick up a virus Tea tree oil is a natural disinfectant and has been proven to inactivate airborne Influenza particles, whilst using Eucalyptus oil in the air has been proven to have antimicrobial effects against many bacteria, including MRSA.
A Smellacloud diffuser also offers a much safer way to fragrance your home instead of burning a candle, which requires supervision and is often unsuitable for a home with children.
On top of that, diffusers are incredibly budget friendly, with only a few drops of an essential oil needed to fill the room with fragrance - as the season changes into winter you can introduce Christmas scents including the Silver fir, Tangerine, or Orange essential oils.
A healthy dose of pampering
As your busy social calendar tails off for the autumn, you’re left with more time to focus on pampering yourself at home... and you darn well deserve it.
So before the chaos of Christmas ensues, why not reach for our miracle Skintox Jojoba Oil - made from the seeds of the shrub Simmondsia chinensis, which is found in northern Mexico.
Of course we are biased, but there’s little this natural oil can’t do, from softening your skin and loosening black heads, to helping improve the look of Cellulitis and healing pimples.
Or if you’re looking for a way to soothe your tired or irritated scalp after a summer spent in the sun, use our Skintox & Hairtox Argan oil as a leave-in conditioner or hair mask - alternatively drop a splash of the oil in the bath for supple skin.
Our 100% organic and cold pressed Argan oil from the Argan tree, is also a favoured oil for body massage, with a high concentration of vitamin E to give your skin a natural anti-aging boost.
So why not give yourself a full body massage to while away the dark evening hours? Or even better, have your partner do it!
