Soveral an­gel Balm, £ 55

I started to ex­per­i­ment with nat­u­ral and or­ganic skin­care around seven years ago, and quickly got into a rou­tine of us­ing co­conut oil re­li­giously. Then, at a med­i­ta­tion event, I was in­tro­duced to Soveral An­gel Balm – a teeny, tiny sam­ple pot that looked pared back and unas­sum­ing. Oh, how wrong I was.

As soon as I twisted off the top it hit me – that in­stantly sooth­ing aro­matic blend of earthy rose­mary and en­dear­ing rose. I couldn’t help but close my eyes and just breathe, let­ting ev­ery­thing around me go quiet for a mo­ment. Now, I use it for prac­ti­cally ev­ery­thing (and I mean ev­ery­thing); from face mask to cleanser, on dry patches, lips and the ends of my hair. I love that its balmy tex­ture isn’t oily or greasy – it just melts into skin like it’s sup­posed to be there.

Liv­ing up to its name, it’s a real do­gooder, with 100% or­ganic in­gre­di­ents that leave my skin feel­ing nour­ished with­out fail. If there’s ever a part of my body that isn’t feel­ing great, I’ll use the balm along­side Alexan­dra Soveral’s sig­na­ture mas­sage tech­nique to soothe ten­sion away. When I do, it re­minds me of eat­ing a really healthy meal af­ter be­ing poorly – when I think, ‘ This is why I need to eat like this!’ That’s what An­gel Balm is to me, a feel­ing of pure good­ness over and over again – ex­actly how I want to feel all the time. ‘ Eat Happy’ by Melissa Hem­s­ley is out now (£20, Ebury Press). Soveral prod­ucts are avail­able from net-a-porter.com
