We may not be getting away any time soon, but we have a few ideas on how you can turn your bathroom into a destination-inspired haven.
Our collaboration with National Geographic brings the best destinations from around the globe right to your home, with travel-inspired aromatherapy blends designed to calm, restore and revive – the same way that seven nights’ stay at a five-star hotel might (well it’s the closest we can get right now, so bear with us). While we can’t literally whisk you off on a dream holiday, these 100% natural pure essential oil blends can help transport your mind to far-flung locations so that you get the me-time you deserve.
Jo Kellett, Tisserand Aromatherapy’s Essential Oil Expert says, “Using essential oils to enhance your wellbeing is a great way to take control of how you feel. By creating the blends for the Nat Geo range, I had the opportunity of bringing together three essential oils in each range to inspire and transport you to a faraway place. By taking a moment in your day to connect with your emotions and concentrate on how you feel, you will instil a sense of calm and tranquillity that will heighten your overall sense of wellbeing.”
Turn your bathroom into a tropical haven with Paradise, the beach-inspired blend that fuses Jasmine, Mandarin and Grapefruit to take your mind back to balmy nights by the sparkling sea. Designed to deeply relax mind and body while inspiring positivity, the pure essential oils will help you to switch off and imagine you’re far away from everyday life. Take a soak with the Bath Oil, close your eyes and let your mind wander.
Perhaps your morning shower isn’t quite waking you up as much as you’d hoped, but with the Explore blend it soon will. Add the Shower Wash to your routine to feel alert and empowered, with the invigorating cocktail of Peppermint, Cardamom and Petitgrain. Inspired by piercing blue skies and breathtaking mountains to help you feel fresher than ever.
For wellness warriors
If your idea of a holiday is visiting temples and practising yoga, allow the Far East-inspired Retreat blend to take you away to your blissful escape. Stress-relieving Neroli, meditative Frankincense and grounding Vetiver will help bring an instant sense of calm; spritz the Mood Mist as you shower or bathe in the oils and visualise hazy sunshine, heavenly silence and a gentle, warm breeze.
Simple steps for a tranquil bathroom:
• Always make sure you have time to indulge yourself, place a ‘do-not disturb’ sign on the door, maybe choose some music to play or have your favourite drink to hand, to personalise your spa bathroom.
• Have everything to hand that you might need; your chosen aromatherapy blend, fluffy towels, and a candle so that you can turn off the bright bathroom light!
• Run the bath to your desired temperature, add your chosen bath oil blend and swirl it around in the water before getting in. Lie back, inhale the aromas and drift away.
