A Fes­tive Mood

Good Housekeeping (UK) - - Good Looks -

HOW TO GET IT Feel like watch­ing Net­flix in­stead of go­ing out? For an in­vig­o­rat­ing an­ti­dote, a speedy bath is bet­ter than an espresso at perk­ing you up. Neal’s Yard Reme­dies aro­mather­apy prac­ti­tioner Ines Wil­lis rec­om­mends adding 100g of Ep­som salts to tepid wa­ter fol­lowed by 2 drops each of ju­niper, grape­fruit and lemon oils. The zesty oils lift flag­ging spir­its and soothe ten­sion headaches, while the cool tem­per­a­ture stops slug­gish­ness. For in­stant re­lax­ation, add more hot wa­ter and swap the cit­rus oils for calm­ing laven­der. If a re­fresh­ing shower beck­ons the morn­ing af­ter, Rit­u­als The Rit­ual Of Ayurveda Foam­ing Shower Gel, £8.50, con­tains sooth­ing rose and sweet al­mond oil to calm and col­lect senses. HOW TO KEEP IT In­cor­po­rat­ing holis­tic help into your beauty rou­tine calms a fraz­zled mind. Scented body oils and but­ters boost hy­dra­tion lev­els and mas­sag­ing them into skin pro­vides a mind­ful mo­ment. Try Votary An­ti­dote Night Oil Laven­der and Chamomile, £30, and The White Com­pany Sleep Nour­ish­ing Body Cream, £30. For an on-the-go so­lu­tion, ap­ply Aro­mather­apy As­so­ciates Lib­erty Clear Mind Roller Ball, £18, to pulse points (wrists, neck and in­ner el­bow), take a deep breath and feel in­stantly de-stressed.

And breathe… up­grade your bath­time rou­tine to boost your mind and spirit
