Relaxing Smells

We love our body oil range which is packed with the richest essential oils to help you destress and sleep. One favourite is the divine nourish and stretch oils which contain the highest quality frankincense oil.


Sleep is so important and poor sleep can raise the stress hormone cortisol which can lead to long term health problems. 

Mindfulness is a powerful practice that calms the brain down before bedtime. It switches on the parasympathetic system which is our calming nervous system, allowing our brains to relax before sleep. It can be used in combination with stretches or progressive muscle relaxation for a deeper restorative sleep. 


Make sure the room isn’t too warm as our core temperature drops which is a trigger for sleep and melatonin production.
