When the going gets rough, self-care is important so take some time out to treat your senses. Colours and scents play an essential role in changing the mood of a space and uplifting your spirits, while skincare with invigorating ingredients can nourish and rejuvenate your skin.

As you go about your hectic day, remember to pause and try reaching for a citrusy face mist to energise your skin and your senses. This can help alleviate tiredness and nurture your skin at the same time.

When you are working from home, a fragrance diffuser with a scent of your choice or a scented candle can be the calming element that you and your family needs. Choose a diffuser or candle that is easily refillable and sustainable to keep your work and family space beautifully scented for the long run.

To wind down and help set you up for a good rest in the evening, enjoy a shower or foam bath that is nourishing and refreshing or if you have been sleep-deprived, try a calming pillow spray to help you fall asleep for that much needed rest. Here’s a look at some scents and skincare that can contribute to your wellbeing.

Freshness of a garden

Un Jardin Aromatique by Goutal Paris draws inspiration from the great tradition of English gardens, from the Chelsea Physic Garden and the Kews Garden that display an extraordinary palette of colours and scents, mixing aromatic plants like sage, mugwort and mint with freshly cut grass.

The Un Jardin Aromatique candle is infused with notes of freshly cut grass, mint, basil and tarragon, and comes in a facetted glass that reinterprets the pleats of the brand’s iconic godron fragrance bottle.

In the spirit of sustainability, refills are available for the candles and in true mix and match style, you can pair your favourite colour of glass with the scent of your choice.

Mediterranean delight

Driven by a spirit of innovation, Diptyque has reinvented the concept of home fragrance with the hourglass diffuser. Just turn it over to begin a new diffusion cycle lasting approximately one hour and enjoy a delightful sensory experience: the diptyque hour.

Ideal for scenting small spaces over a period of several months until the fragrance evaporates completely, it can then be refilled one time with the same scent.

The Diptyque Orange Blossom Flower Hourglass Diffuser 2.0 offers a subtle and floral scent, evoking the freshness of the Mediterranean and reawakens olfactory memories of childhood.

A good night’s sleep

Want to reduce sleep anxiety and improve sleep quality? This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray is a sleep-inducing pillow spray infused with essential oils. When we sleep, our skin cells repair and harmful toxins are removed, making sleep the ultimate beauty secret and first step in your skincare routine.

This pillow spray is made with a calming blend of lavender, vetivert and chamomile to help direct you into a calmer state of mind for improved sleep quality.

It’s great for the night before a busy or stressful day or simply on nights when you’re having trouble falling asleep. Simply spray your pillow or bed cover before bed to fall into a deep sleep and wake up feeling fresh and energised the next morning.

Marine meditation

Being cooped up in the house is no fun, so let this body wash and foam bath transport you to the vast ocean with feelings of joy of being out in the open sea. The Bath & Body Works Meditative Ocean Waves Body Wash and Foam Bath is carefully crafted from a blend of bergamot and cedarwood essential oil blend inspired by the gentle rolling waters of the ocean.

This fast-foaming body wash is enriched with sea minerals and aloe, that is nourishing and leaves skin feeling clean, soft and refreshed. Packaged in a 100% recycled plastic bottle, it is fragranced with natural essential oils and other natural fragrances.

Mood and skin booster

Packaged in a bright yellow bottle that will instantly brighten up your mood, the Kora Organics Energizing Citrus Mist is a refreshing facial mist that energises your skin and gives it a healthy glow.

Miranda Kerr, founder of Kora Organics, likes to use this mist in the morning after cleansing or throughout the day to boost her spirits. An uplifting blend of Noni Extract, aloe vera, lemongrass and Mandarin essential oils awakens the senses and invigorates your skin.

The brands’ skincare products are energised with Rose Quartz, a crystal believed to carry a soothing energy to encourage love and acceptance of ourselves and others.
