There’s something so powerful about scent – it changes your mood, your home, your environment, your mindset. It can be used to mark the end of the week and the start of the weekend; when you sit down with a mug of good coffee (you know, the kind you save for special occasions), when you get home from work and need to relax, or when you need a celebratory end of a good cleaning session.
From the lighting of a simple candle to the slow trickle of a reed diffuser, the scent that you choose for your home should inspire what you need it to do – whether that’s to calm, comfort or freshen.
Which is why helpmeorganics’ products are so powerful. With 25 years of aromatherapy experience, the brand understand essential oils, natural products, and the healing power behind what they can do.
I burnt the help me get into the festive spirit candle in October because I just couldn’t wait any longer, and because the sweet autumnal fragrance that comes from the Fir needle, clove, ginger and orange made everything so cozy the minute it got chillier – especially on those days when I really underestimated the temperature outside.
I burnt the help me have a mindful of calm candle when I’d had a long day at work, and had more to do when I got home. I burnt it when I had more to do than a to-do list could handle. When my brain had no capacity and nothing else was working – and you know what, it worked. It might be because I’ve spent the past couple of years going to hot yoga, and the scent took me straight back to the warm, silent studio, lying on my mat as I centered myself before the practice began. The help me have a mindful of calm range blends frankincense, geranium bourbon and lavender, and is also available as a room spray, calming blend and massage oil.
All of helpmeorganics products are vegan, organic, paraben-free, cruelty-free and handmade in the UK. Their gift boxes are a lovely idea, and include a calm room spray and essential oil blend for £16.50 – perfect for Christmas. You can find their range of gift boxes here.
