Products to help you De-Stress

The festive Season is one of the most stressful times of the year and stress can lead to all kinds of other issues such as insomnia, a lot of shouting and swearing not to mention being overwhelmed. Presents to buy, cakes to make, cards to write, cellotape to find, the last date of posting to remember, the Turkey needs ordering and that is before table plans are even argued over. Then the Boxing Day sales, do I need it do I not need it. Then New Year will be upon us all and the big dilemma of going out or staying in, setting New Years Resolutions and the stress of sticking to them. So before you spontaneously combust, stop, take a breath and relax for just a few minutes.  

If you still frantic and frazzled, short on sleep and temper then I might just have something to make you feel more human and less like ripping someones head off.

Scentered Balms - I came across this brand through You Beauty Discovery Beauty Box which I get monthly and I am always wary of products that claim to be 100% natural but can also help me feel less stressed and also help me sleep, but these balms are brilliant and portable, so you can chuck one in your handbag and use as you need too.
These rich, nourishing balms have been carefully formulated with a blend of moringa and shea butters to ensure a non-greasy finish on the skin and long lasting fragrance delivery.

Sleep Well Therapy Balm is scented with Palmarosa, Lavender and Ylang Ylang all of which work together to help to clear the head, quieten the mind and relax the body.
Stress Less Therapy Balm is scented with Chamomile, Neroli and Mandarin which make for one amazing uplifting and feel good scent which eases everyday tensions, soothes the mind and lifts the spirits.

To use these balms you simply stop what you are doing, take a deep breath, apply the balm to your pulse points, inhale deeply and then continue with your day or night.  More information on Scentered Balms can be found here.

This Works Deep Sleep Range - I have been a huge fan of this range for a good few years now and swear by it if I need sleep so badly that suitcases form under my eyes.

Deep Sleep Pillow Spray is infused with essential oils of Lavender, Vetivert and Wild Camomile to soothe the body and mind. Designed to be spritzed on to your pillow. I tend to spray my pillow before I begin my 'getting ready for bed' routine which gives the fragrance a chance to dissipate and work its way onto the bed linen, ready to send me off, which it does, to the land of nod.
Deep Sleep Stress Less is infused with refreshing Eucalyptus cleanses, invigorates and helps to counter physical and mental fatigue. Frankincense essential oil acts as an antiseptic to help fight infections and to help you relax physically and mentally whilst rejuvenating the skin. Lavender Oil is the most effective oil in helping hypertension, nervous tension and insomnia. Designed in a rollerball style to make applying to your pulse points a much easier task.
Alongside having a nice long hot bath with bubbles, a cup of tea and a good book, I have found all of these work for me when I am in need of some down time.

What do you use to de-stress?

  5. It has been a very frazzling few weeks and I always find my sleep gets disrupted so these products sound just what I need. Failing that, a long hot bath with a book and a glass of wine (or a walk outside)
