New Year, New you? See how fragrance can help you keep your resolutions.

While, most of us start the New Year with a firm resolve to make positive changes, as the days go by it gets harder and harder to keep up with our good intentions and put off our bad habits. Fragrance has long been used in aromatherapy to influence mood and create a positive mind-set, whether your resolution is taking time to de-stress, getting a better night’s sleep or giving up smoking, therapeutic Essential Oils can help you on your way.

I want to… relax

The Christmas period can be filled with all kinds of stressors, from present shopping, to awkward family reunions to cooking the perfect dinner on the big day. If your resolution for the New Year is to fight off stress and take more time to relax and focus on your wellbeing, try our Relaxation blend. A floral scent combining soft geranium, calming lavender and clary sage to encourage a soothed and relaxed mood.

I want to… quit smoking

Quitting smoking is great for your health and your wallet so it’s no wonder this is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions. Unfortunately there’s no magic scent to remove the cravings for cigarettes, but our Anti-Tobacco blend is designed to ease your temptations by banishing the lingering scent of smoke from the home, leaving behind a fresh scent of juniper, cedarwood and pine.

I want to… get a good night

Sleep problems or not getting enough rest can be hugely disruptive in our day to day lives as tiredness makes us grumpy, unfocused and upset. If your resolution has been to improve your wellbeing with a great night’s sleep our Sleep blend of essential oils can help. Created from a blend of relaxing lavender, pettigrain and gentle sage, Sleep can help relieve stress preventing you from getting enough rest and create a calm mood ideal for drifting off.

Sleep – £12.50

De-stressing in the New Year

The New Year is the traditional time for us to set about revitalising our lives – engaging in a little post-Christmas pre-Spring cleaning, detoxing after a season of indulgence and resolving to make changes for the year ahead.

This is a time we often spend identifying the negatives in our lives and resolving to do better in those areas. However, it’s important to remember that self-improvement should be balanced with self-care. The changes we make in the New Year shouldn’t just focus on reducing our clutter or our waistlines, but on shrinking our stress-levels too.

Aromatherapy is an excellent, easy means of introducing a calming influence into your routine. A practice dating far back into our history, aromatherapy uses the therapeutic powers of fragrance to promote wellbeing and stimulate the senses. Drawing its power from natural essential oils, depending on the fragrances in each blend aromatherapy can be used to improve relaxation, concentration or mood.

With an amora Scent Hub, it’s easy to enjoy aromatherapy at home, when it best suits you. Combining technology with pure and natural essential oils, Scent Hubs provide an aromatherapy experience adapted to a busy modern lifestyle.

New Year, Restored You

Lethargic? A bit run down? Still finding Quality Street wrappers and bits of brie down the back of the sofa?

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.
