Lethargic? A bit run down? Still finding Quality Street wrappers and bits of brie down the back of the sofa? Ah, it must be January, the month of the year reserved for feeling distinctly “not quite yourself” following a month of indulging, socialising and generally throwing all caution to the wind. The January blues are a real thing, and they’re taking over. But how do you conquer them? Traditionally, it’s all about adopting that ‘new year, new me” mind-set, promising yourself a shiny new version of ‘you’. We disagree, we think it’s far more valuable to restore the real you, taking the time to focus on how you feel and how you would like to feel.
Your sense of smell is 10,000 times stronger than your other senses, able to bypass your conscious mind and instantly access the part of your brain where your emotions and memories live. This close, personal relationship between scents and your emotions is why certain smells are so readily able to change the way you feel. Just a bit of emotional TLC from the help of your sense of smell can help you kick off 2016 to a great start, which is why essential oils are set to become your new wellness companions, able to instantaneously access your mood and help to adapt it.
So, if you’d like to give your wellbeing a boost using the power of aromatherapy, where exactly do you begin? There are hundreds of individual essential oils, each with their own unique powers and abilities, but how do you know which are going to be the most effective for your needs? Well, we’ve decided to keep things simple, creating our own amora™ Pure Essential Oil blends which are not only pure and natural, but tailored to your needs. So what exactly do you need? To cool off? Try Calm Me Down. A pick-me-up? Try Make Me Happy. It really is as simple as taking a moment to work out how you’re feeling, and how you’d like to be feeling.
The next part is slightly more complicated – finding five minutes to yourself! Add a few drops of your chosen blend to your amora™ Scent Hub and let the fine mist of water and essential oils envelop your senses, rebooting your mind and preparing you for whatever comes next. Getting ready for a good night’s sleep? Try adding a few drops of Bedtime. Preparing for an invigorating work out? Give Energise Me a go (make sure you have Relax Me on hand for afterwards)!
Let the gentle vapour refresh your mind and home, fragrancing your living space using all natural oils, whilst LED lighting gives off a soft glimmer, transporting you to the spa. Use your smartphone to control Apollo and Harmonia’s inbuilt Bluetooth speakers, and really kick back. The Quality Street wrappers can wait.
