We all need a little me time, time to relax, chill out and gather our thoughts.  Here are a few tips to help you to achieve a perfect home pamper session.

You’ll need to choose a space at home where you feel comfortable, can relax back and not worry about your chores so before you start, clear the clutter.  If you are trying to relax then you need your space to be “just right”.  Choose the right lighting, keep it subdued, a dim light is more relaxing than a bright blinding bulb, lie back and listen to your favourite tunes.

Candles provide a lovely relaxing glow and come in many fragrances.  The most relaxing scents are Lavender, Eucalyptus, Clary Sage and Rose.  We have chosen these fragrances for several of our relax gift boxes, The Relaxer, The Mindful and The Hug all contain award winning candles hand poured by the lovely Candle Brand of Norfolk.

If a long soak in the bath is going to be part of your home pamper routine then pick out your fluffiest towels and don’t forget to add some delicious salts to your water.  In our Pink Pamper we have chosen the beautifully scented Bloomtown Rose Scented salts.  Bloomtown are the first palm oil free supplier of beauty products in the UK so we just had to include them in our Pamper Gift Box.  Add to this the gift within a gift in the shape of the “Holm I Can’t Get No Sleep” set which contains a calming Rosewood & Chamomile pillow & room mist and a delightful Bergamot & Parsley scented candle, simply stunning and highly rated.

Don’t forget to treat you skin with a silky mask. In our Pink Pamper we have a luxurious powder face mask which is formulated with skin softening French Pink Clay and organic Rosehip Powder to gently exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin.  Organic Lavender and Chamomile help to calm and soothe inflamed skin, whilst the astringent properties of Frankincense help to tighten pores and brighten the complexion.  This is a powder face mask, all you need to do is add a little water to activate.  In addition we have included a Konjac Body Sponge. This pink clay bath and shower Konjac Sponge has been created for sensitive and dehydrated bodies.  Pure Konjac plant fibre has been mixed with pink French clay to help those suffering from weather-stressed complexions.  Whether the skin has been exposed to harsh sun or central heating, pink clay helps soften and condition without causing any irritation.  The shape ensures a smooth flat surface for maximum cleansing, with a string to hang the sponge to dry in an airy place between uses.  Not only does this form part of your heavenly relaxation and pamper routine it is suitable for eczema & psoriasis sufferers.

So you’ve had a soak, you’ve pampered your mind and body with beautiful relaxing scents and sensations and you’re all set for a restful sleep.  If sleep is something that you find difficult, there are a number of ways to help.  Cut down on screen time before bed.  The blue light of mobile devices stimulates the brain so pick up a book instead.  We have several reads in our Relax and Pamper Collection, from Fearne Cotton’s awarding winning Happy and Calm books and the highly rated Little Book of Mindfulness.  Spray your pillow with Lavender Sleep Spray, perfect to soothe the senses and pop on one of our luxury Smug eye masks or the lavender filled organic eye pillow, perfectly weighted to soothe tired eyes and minds.

If you are looking for a gift Just for You or a birthday box for her then simply check out the fabulous range of gift boxes in our Relax and Pamper Collection.  Here you’ll find everything you need, from inspirational reads, beautifully scented candles, sleep sprays and herbal teas.
