With all the activities, events, social commitments, work demands and deadlines leading up to Christmas, we can become more breathless and out of sync, forgetting to take valuable time out for ourselves. Aromatherapy creates moments, a 'breathing space' and makes us feel that little bit more zen. Just the simple action of inhaling an aromatheraputic essence balances our internal rhythm, slows down our train of thought and a sense of stability and wellness takes over.
I have recently discovered the 'Tata Harper Skincare' Aromatic Treatments (Cue sigh) and in between facial clients, I dispense some on the palm of my hand and inhale ~ exhale. Along with becoming a handbag essential, Tata Harper's Aromatic Stress Treatment is a valuable little yoga companion and as I sweep my arms up towards the ceiling, gentle wafts of Frankincense, Rose Otto and Orange Blossom put me into that focused, relaxed state of mind.
The Clemency Alice Home Fragrance signature blend "Bloom" (diffused in the Treatment Room and Relax Lounge) was inspired by the blossoming Spring buds of flowers that I would muse over during my early morning walks. This is a fragrant, crisp, revitalising blend combining fresh floral notes of Geranium with fruity, uplifting citrus top notes of Lime, Petitgrain and Lemon Verbena. When I have just a few drops remaining, I remove the lid and arrange the bottle in my drawer amongst my cashmeres and cottons.
