While we may be confined to our homes right now, when we open our windows or enter our gardens and driveways for some much-encouraged fresh air, we have perhaps never been more grateful to see that the skies above us are beautifully blue. More unusually, particularly for this time of year, they are also clear of planes. For some, this might be peaceful, for others, eerie. But for many, this might represent the disappointment of a cancelled trip abroad.
When we go on holiday, we tend to obtain three things which help support our overall wellbeing when we arrive home: inner calm, clarity of mind and a renewed sense of happiness and positivity. Ironically, this is exactly what we need right now! Meditation and mindfulness exercises can be a great way to help your mind escape for a moment or two while your body is stuck at home, but aromatherapy, known to be linked to memory and positive associations, is also an incredible tool you can use at home.
Our destination-inspired aromatherapy blends, created in partnership with National Geographic will help your mind escape to the most blissful corners of the world, inspiring positivity, inner calm and clarity of mind for a renewed sense of wellbeing, wherever your journey takes you.
Introducing our blends:
Take your mind to a balmy tropical evening, where beachy sea mist catches and sparkles in the warm breeze. Our Paradise blend of Jasmine, Grapefruit and Mandarin deeply relaxes the mind and body, inspiring positivity and a warm inner glow.
Transport yourself above the clouds to a mountainside with piercing blue skies and fresh clean air. Our Explore blend of Peppermint, Cardamom and Petitgrain brings clarity to a busy mind and calms the respiratory system for a breath of fresh air.
Drift away to a far Eastern temple, where twisted trees bathe in the soft haze of early morning sun. Our Retreat blend of Neroli, Frankincense and Vetiver encourages inner strength, a reflective sense of calm and contentment in the self.
Try our visualisation meditations to use alongside our award-winning blends, and you’ll soon feel like you’re by the beach, exploring a forgotten temple or up in the mountains with cool fresh air kissing your cheeks.

Imagine the shadow of a palm tree falling gently onto the soft sand of an endless beach. The warm breeze is fragrant with soft citrus, and overhead, a marshmallow sky fades from blue to pink, peppered with stars. The gentle rocking of your hammock matches the rhythm of the waves lapping at the sand as you close your eyes to listen to them break…
Imagine a rocky ridge cutting into a piercing blue sky, it’s peaks sugar-dusted with untouched white snow. An army of pine trees admire the might of the mountain from below in the valley, where everything is quiet and still. The mountain stands proud, with you upon it, cool fresh air kissing your cheeks and bringing clarity to your mind…
Imagine stone paths creeping up on ancient walls, where a burning lantern swings from the palm of a peaceful stranger. Statues stand strong and silent, hugged by the roots of twisted trees drinking in the early sun. Your breathing slows as you focus on the sound of running water, bare feet skimming the water’s surface under the arch of a bamboo bridge…
