As those winter months creep in, it comes as no surprise that most people would rather spend more time indoors with a hot drink in hand. Whilst we're leaving the comfort of home less, there's no need to sacrifice those spa luxuries; it's time to bring the spa experience straight to your bathroom with our range of aromatherapy shower mists and steamers.
The power of aromatherapy
Aromatherapy has been proven to promote relaxation in both mind and body, helping achieve a better nights sleep by reducing anxieties and introducing a level of calmness. With stress and anxiety being heightened during the uncertainty of Covid-19, more people have turned to the more traditional holistic practice of aromatherapy to enter a more relaxed state of mind. Upon inhalation, these essential oils travel directly to the limbic system, which is the part of the brain connected to our emotions, and can positively alter our mood as the aromas stimulate the central nervous system.
, founded by Laurelle during lockdown in 2020, was designed with the intention of improving quality of sleep which led to the production of the incredibly popular shower mists
. This innovative product is infused with essential oils that are released in the steamy vapours imitating a sauna experience to encourage relaxation and recovery.
Currently, there are two versions of these shower mists available. Conquer,
infused with Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Menthol, is the perfect way to start off your morning and awaken your senses ready for the day. If you're looking for something to help you wind down for the evening, Sleep Goddess also offers the alternative Slumber
shower mist with the relaxing scent of Lavender and Geranium - a combination that has been widely used to improve quality of sleep.
In addition to Sleep Goddess, Ebo Beauty
have also launched shower steamers in 2021. For the morning, they suggest using their Clarity
shower steamer containing eucalyptus, peppermint and lavender to energise and focus. If your main concern is sleeping, you may find their Serenity
steamer beneficial. The essential oils in this sleep aid are Frankincense, Bergamot and Ylang Ylang that aim to induce calm and release negative emotions to ensure a better night's rest. Ebo Beauty have an additional third shower steamer infused with Rosemary, Lemon, Cinnamon and Clove, suitably named Immunity,
to fight infection and to provide some respiratory relief. With the Winter flu season in full swing, this may be one to add to the basket!
