Our De-stress Wish List

We’ve heard it a thousand times before: rest and relaxation are nature’s greatest beauty aids. But when you’re rushing between meetings and deadlines, double-grande in hand, that can seem an impossible dream. Slow down before silly season with these de-stress beauty aids.

Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil

Our favourite sleep inducing bath blend, this is a pure and potent combination of nature’s most relaxing plants and flowers, including vetivert, chamomile, and sandalwood. Lots of bath products claim to be your speedy ticket to the land of nod: this stuff really delivers. As an added bonus, your entire home will smell like a soothing, high-end spa.

Mio Workout Wonder Gel

They say it’s a must for your gym bag; we say it’s a sofa-side essential. The same powerful natural actives that will de-clench muscles pre and post workouts also work wonders on everyday stresses and strains.? Worked into tense, aching shoulders, this feels instantly cooling and really helps to work out those kinks.

L?Occitane Aromachologie Relaxing Body Cream

Housed in a heavy, glass, apothecary-style jar, this luxe-feeling cream is rich and moisturising, yet rapidly absorbed. With essential oils of sweet orange, rosemary, lavender, bergamot and mandarin, the scent – 100% natural – cocoons you in cosy, mind-calming warmth.

Malin + Goetz Cannabis Candle

An interesting choice, perhaps, from this family owned and operated New York brand; cannabis may not be addictive, but give this a sniff and we bet that you’ll be hooked. Notes of citrus, oakmoss, sandalwood, amber and patchouli blend with the eponymous ?erb for a soothing, yet sexy, scent – and yes, it’s completely legal!

This Works Sleep Plus+ Pillow Spray

No edit of beauty sleep aids would be complete without referencing This Works. Their cult, lavender pillow spray has been recently reformulated and boasts impressive stats: 100% of users felt less restless during the night, with 89% saying they would choose it over sleeping medication they’d been prescribed in the past. Tranquility, bottled.
