Relaxing Massage Body Oil
I battle with a lot of neck and back strain from sitting my a PC all day. The oil is made with almond oil which is combined with essential oils. Because this is a massage oil it isn't fully absorbed by the skin and therefore is absolutely perfect for massaging away aches and pains. I find the oil is really good at moisturising my skin too so this is perfect for massaging your body straight after a shower. I remove excess oil with a warm damp face cloth. The fragrance is also great in that it relaxes a person. I use a tiny amount of this to massage the temples of my head when I have a headache. It really helps to ease my headaches. A 100ml bottle costs R420, a tiny amount of this goes a long while. (Click here to purchase)
Relaxing Pillow Spray
I have never used a pillow spray before so I was really curious when I saw this bottle. The spray is made of 100% natural scents that help to calm you which promotes relaxation and well-being. The mist has a combination of lavender, bergamot, mandarin, sweet orange and geranium. I have purposefully been using a white pillow case while using this to see if it stains linen and I am happy to report that it does not. It is difficult to say if this truly helps to create a good night's rest. What I do know is that when using this I settle down much quicker and fall asleep a lot easier. It is such a treat to use this and I look forward to going to bed. A 100ml bottle costs R310. (Click here to purchase)
Revitalising Body Scrub
I love body scrubs and I am a firm believer in exfoliating regularly. This body scrub is a sugar crystals that are perfect for scrubbing away dead skin especially on areas such as elbows, knees and feet. The thing to remember with scrubs is that you have to control the pressure you apply when rubbing the scrub across your body. I use this before I shower - I rub this across my body and then turn the shower on to rinse away the sugar. The essential oils in the scrub creates a thin film of oils on your skin that leaves it perfectly moisturised and smooth. This body scrub is one to energise a person which it does - it contains lemon zest, orange, grapefruit, mint, lemon and rosemary essential oils. Any time a product has citrus essential oils you are guaranteed to feel awake and energised. A 200ml tub costs R530. (Click here to purchase)
