It was love at first sniff. Wellbeing is one of the fastest growing categories in the beauty industry right now, which makes sense; what’s the point in spending £££ on make up and hair care if your eyes are sunken and your strands are falling out from stress. Look after yourselves people, it brings a ‘sparkle’ to the skin that no amount of foundation can fake (ok, ok, except maybe Jouer’s Luminizing Moisture Tint).
I love a ritual, this one takes seconds and the magical Ayurvedic formula of this Pure Calm Oil is like a natural valium. On a recent long-haul flight when I was using this before lights out, I had everyone around me trialing it after I was asked, ‘what are you doing and what is that glorious smell?'.
You start by massaging 4 drops between your toes, this is one of the fastest topical routes to your bloodstream, then a couple of drops covers your wrist, temples and behind your ears, then finally – cup your hands over your mouth and breath in-and-out deeply 5 times. I defy anyone not to feel elated, grounded, supported and calm.
