Happy New You

Happy New Year! So, it’s the start of another year… How many of us promise ourselves unachievable new year’s resolutions that we’ve already broken by the 2nd January?? I know I’m definitely guilty of this. Well not this year. I’m going to share with you some small, simple changes you can make to live healthier, greener lifestyle and kick off 2020 the natural way.

Choose organic

Make a positive step towards a more natural lifestyle by choosing organic. Better for you and better for the planet, organic products are grown and produced without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilisers, no GMO, promoting biodiversity and fighting back against global warming. This small change can have such a big impact and being the start of the new year, there’s no better time to switch to organic. 

Green Cleaning

We’re all becoming more conscious about the environment and the impact everyday living is having on the planet. Many of us are turning to a greener lifestyle from eating green, using natural beauty products and even choosing eco-friendly cleaning products. Here are some super simple changes you can make to green your cleaning routine. Switch your bleach to sodium bicarbonateSimply pour half a cup of sodium bicarb down the toilet, leave overnight for a gleaming toilet or you can scrub with a toilet brush if necessary. 

Ditch the anti bacterial spray. Create your own germ busting spray by combining white vinegar, distilled water and essential oil. Tea Tree, Clove or Rosemary are just some of the best essential oils for cleaning. 

Try using Organic Castile Soap as an alternative to dish soap.  

Get Outdoors

We all know that exercise is good for us. And everyone promises to start exercising in the new year. But getting your steps in doesn’t mean you have to hit the gym. Grab your wellies and get outdoors. A brisk 30-minute walk is proven to help lower blood pressure, boost your mood, burn calories and help you sleep better. So, what are you waiting for, get you hat and scarf on and enjoy the outdoors. And the perfect way to unwind after a little exercise? A hot bath with some Epsom salts or a lovely massage with our Work It Out Blend

Make Your Own

Creating your own self-care products is a great way to have confidence in what you put on your skin. It’s good fun too. Crafting your own facial serum to making a post work out heat rub. There’s nothing you can’t create and you’ll know exactly what’s in it because you made it yourself. Browse our formulating ingredients for some inspiration!

Be realistic with your goals and try making small changes to move towards a happier, healthier you. Eating well, exercising and taking care of your mental health can have a huge impact on your overall wellbeing.
