De-stressing in the New Year

The New Year is the traditional time for us to set about revitalising our lives – engaging in a little post-Christmas pre-Spring cleaning, detoxing after a season of indulgence and resolving to make changes for the year ahead.

This is a time we often spend identifying the negatives in our lives and resolving to do better in those areas. However, it’s important to remember that self-improvement should be balanced with self-care. The changes we make in the New Year shouldn’t just focus on reducing our clutter or our waistlines, but on shrinking our stress-levels too.

Aromatherapy is an excellent, easy means of introducing a calming influence into your routine.

Drawing its power from natural essential oils, depending on the fragrances in each blend aromatherapy can be used to improve relaxation, concentration or mood.

With an amora Scent Hub, it’s easy to enjoy aromatherapy at home, when it best suits you. Combining technology with pure and natural essential oils, Scent Hubs provide an aromatherapy experience adapted to a busy modern lifestyle.

Hygge for your home

The Danish concept of hygge – based around ideas of comfort, cosiness and cheerfulness – has taken the world by storm this year. Now that the winter months are quickly approaching this cosy trend is increasing even more in popularity with more and more people striving to create an aura of Nordic comfort in their homes. However, the craze for hygge also shows how eager we are for a solution to the stresses of modern living, something hygge promises to provide.
