HOME: AUTUMN INDULGENCES
Turning Leaves, roasting chestnuts; summer’s packed and put away till next year. Winter’s arrival and the holiday festivities are imminent.
When the crisp air nips at your ears in the day, It’s then that my evenings turn to snuggling warm at home with a few Autumn Indulgences. Creating a warm, relaxing space with deliciously scented candles, room sprays, cosy blankets and comfort foods.
So here’s a few of my favourites for the winter months:
Aromatherapy Associates – Inner Strength Candle
Candles, just the prefect addition when its cold outside there’s so many to choose from but I do Like Aromatherapy Associates. This candle will also double up as a Christmas candle as it contains Frankincense. This brand is by for the most potent Ive found, not in fragrance but in results; ie it does what it says on the tin, with in 20minutes I’m definitely feeling more relaxed. Also on my wish list for Autumn/Winter is the “this works” candle it’s slightly cheaper and contains warm and spicy notes of Cedarwood, Cinnamon, Clove, and Orange. Which ever candle you choose, make sure your candle is fragranced with essential oils as scented candles usually contain artificial fragrance and have none of the physiological or therapeutic mood boosting effects that aromatherapy candles possess.
Aesop composure Aromatique Room Spray
Room Spray’s; If you’ve never used them they are delicious. They offer an instant fragrance, full of natural aromatherapy loveliness. They can be used to create atmosphere, relaxation or as a simple air freshener (with out the host of chemicals found in the traditional ones) Aesop are an Australian beauty brand that’s focused around using natural plant based ingredients (a couple of their products have gone on to become cult beauty staples) Yep they’re that good! The spray combines calming notes of Geranium, Bergamot and Cedar Atlas. This particular aroma spray (composure Aromatique) is exclusive to Liberty’s, so If your around London before xmas it’s the perfect excuse to pop over and see their amazing christmas windows,decorations and have a ramble around that gorgeous iconic building. If not it’s also available at Liberty’s online.
