- Tropical retreat
Think Maldives, Bali, Malaysia, Bora Bora, Bahamas...
Even if this is not on the cards this year, through exotic scents, food and drinks and activities, you can transport yourself to tropical paradise in no time.
If you’d like to take a quick trip to paradise, our Sunset Bliss blend is just for you. We have blended the exotic flowers of ylang-ylang and jasmine with blood orange and petitgrain and a hint of spice from black pepper. Honeyed jasmine and rich ylang-ylang will bring this holiday feeling and will give your self-confidence and sensuality a boost. A great way to enjoy this blend is by taking a long bath with our luxurious bath salts or by massaging gently your body with our body oil or diffusing the blend in your space.
- Mediterranean escape
Think Corsica, Sicily, Cyprus, Malta ...
A Mediterranean escape is all about being by the deep blue sea, enjoying fresh food and reading an immersive novel! Our Mind Spa blend with the essential oils of bergamot, patchouli and eucalyptus will immediately transport you to a late afternoon stroll on a balmy Mediterranean beach. Our body oil specifically is a fantastic after sun companion that nourishes the skin and prevents from sun damage. This is because jojoba and sweet almond oil are rich in proteins, vitamins (including Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, E), linoleic acid, linoleic acid (omega 6) and oleic acid (omega 9).

- Camping trip
Enjoying the great outdoors is one of the best ways to relax and unwind! Camping themed holidays are especially great when with kids or a group of friends. Sleeping under the stars can be a welcome change of scenery, with your own facilities just a few steps away if needed. So set up your tent, bring your boardgames, thermos and flashlight, and tell ghost stories over hot chocolate or a glass of wine. Don’t forget to bring your Summer meadow blend, use to massage tired legs after long walks. Our Summer meadow blend features fresh and herbaceous notes from peppermint and lemongrass essential oils with a hint of earthiness and citrus. It is uplifting, grounding and restorative and you will feel in no time like basking in a meadow. You will be transported to your favourite camping trip walking through the grass barefoot.
- Yoga retreat
Think India, Sri Lanka and Thailand…
A yoga retreats is a great way to not only stretch and tone your body but find that much needed zen and inner peace! If you have fallen off the track on your yoga practice, a yoga retreat is the perfect time to re-connect with yoga and immerse yourself in this ancient practice.
Don’t forget to bring your lavender eye pillow which will enhance your savasana and meditation practice. Clarity Blend’s eye pillows are created to enhance your relaxation routine. Soft and lightweight, it comfortably hugs your eyes and forehead, releasing facial tension and blocking out light, whilst releasing the natural lavender aroma.
Think home sweet home…
With the uncertainties around international travel, summer staycation at home might be on the cards for many of us. Moreover, not everyone wants to travel the world for their holiday - the drain on savings, finding the will to pack and last-minute organisational chaos may be the tipping factors for deciding to spend holidays at home. But worry not! Whether makeshift or desired, a staycation does not need to feel like a compromise and there are many small but great ways to make your staycation special for it to deliver much needed relaxation. One simple rule for a successful staycation is staying away from the ‘To Do’ list and usual routine. In order for our body and mind to fully relax, we need to set our usual routine and 'To Do' list aside. Don't be tempted to follow into the productivity trap and doing work, such as repairs, home cleaning or admin tasks. Rest is productive after all!
Transform your bathroom into a spa with our Summer meadow bath salts. This is the perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of everyday life. This uplifting and restorative blend of lemongrass, peppermint and grapefruit is particularly close to our hearts and we’re so happy to share its magic with you.
